I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group.
Interview Details – -phone interview followed up by in person group interview
Reason for Declining – low pay
I interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group in January 2013.
Interview Details – Applied online and contacted Campus recruiting myself because they did not recruit at my school. First round phone interview was pretty generic and standard. A month later was called up and flown to Pittsburgh for a "super day." First night was a meet and greet reception. Second day consisted of three interviews and then flew back home. Received a call from a totally random person that I had never talked to one week to the day later saying I would not be extended an offer.
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group in January 2013.
Interview Details – Initital communication was a resume drop through my university. PNC reached out for an on-campus interview, but something happened to my original interviewer day-of, and I had a phone interview instead. I then took online tests (skills and personality), and had a virtual video interview, which was extremely awkward, in which I was being filmed answering questions that I read off the screen. Lastly I was flown out to Pittsburgh for Super Day.

Very Easy Interview
I applied online and interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group.
Interview Details –
I first applied for the Accel Trainee position on pncsites.com/careers/students. A week later I received a phone call for a phone interview. The interview was very informative, the recruiter gave me a sort description of the program and we 15min interview which consisted of situational questions. ie "describe a time when..." Directly after the interview the recruiter said she was going forward my file to the next stage, and I should be hearing from another recruiter within 2weeks. I then received an email where I had to complete an online branch management assessment; the assessment was a rating system 1-5 scale, of 100 questions. Took about an hour to complete. After passing the assessment; I was invited to Pittsburgh for the Super day event, paid in full by PNC, flight & hotel. Which consisted of a night of mingling with executives, there were hors d'oeuvres & drinks. The following morning we had 1on1 interviews with executives where they asked situational questions, similar to the first interview. A month after the superday I received an offer for the position.
Advice - Don't take online assessment lightly take your time on those questions.
- Make sure you talk to everyone at the mingling session, so the executives
remember you the following morning, during the 1on1 interviews.
- Ask intelligent question, how do you feel about simpson bowles, talk about
- and SMILE = ) "a lot"

Negotiation Details – Salary was extremely generous, no need to negotiate, plus a 2k signing bonus.
I interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group in December 2012.
Interview Details –
PNC did not recruit at my university at the time, so I just applied on their career website. Very quick turnaround on the phone interview, which was extremely basic. Was asked for my major, GPA, why are you interested in finance, why PNC, what part of the internship are you interested in (Capital Markets, C&IB, or Treasury Management), etc. It then took a few weeks for them to get back to me re: final round, but was flown up to Pittsburgh on a Thursday. Cocktail reception at a nearby hotel the night before to meet as many people as possible and learn about the bank and stuff. The next morning they had a breakfast reception prior to the interviews at the same hotel. I had three 2:1 interviews and one 1:1 interview. The vast majority of questions were fit or resume-based. In fact, two of my four interviews were essentially just conversations about my background and about the internship program.
Was asked the following:
1. Talk about a time where you had to used negotiation skills.
2. What do you think about the current state of the banking industry?
3. Tell me about a time when you failed and how you've learned from that experience.
4. How do you get your financial news, and what current events have you been following?
5. What is the most important line item in any of the three financial statements that you'd look at before deciding to invest in that company?
