    Training Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group.

    Interview Details

    I went through 7 interviews before an offer was made. I then had to be finger printed and drug tested before I could start. When I started, a colleague told me he was trying to tell me not to take the position, in a round about way. He was right, terrible experience. Stay away from working in the HR department.

    Interview Questions
    • None, they were all pretty easy, just a lot of nonsense.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They made an offer, I tried to negotiate a little higher salary, an extra 5k. They weren't budging, it was take it or leave it.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PNC Financial Services Group in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initially I was contacted by a PNC recruiter regarding my resume they found on one of the career sites. After going through an initial conversation with the recruiter I was schedule for an phone interview with the team lead. In this interview we went over my technical background and experiences as well as what the position entailed. The next step was a phone interview with the teams manager where we discussed more of my background/experience and what would be expected if I was offered the position. Finally I had one final interview with the managers boss. This was an overview of the division and what the goals of the next few years are, and what the position would be supporting. All of the interviews were by phone due to me being in a different state. The entire process took about 3 weeks, with approximately 1 week between each phone interview. The recruiters I worked with were amazing, they kept me informed over each step what to expect and the approximate time frame between steps.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PNC Financial Services Group in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had an on campus interview that I scheduled through a career day at school. Afterwards I was called to participate in Super Day, which involved a networking reception, an overnight stay in Pittsburgh, and then three interviews the following morning. The questions asked were all very straight forward and the interviewers were professional and friendly. I had the opportunity to meet with all of my interviewers the previous evening at the networking event, which helped the interview go incredibly smooth.

    Investment Banking Summer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at PNC Financial Services Group in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    The first interview was standard 2 on 1. They asked basics about financial statements and got a general feel for what part of the bank you are interested in. PNC interviews in a weird way. Rather than breaking interviews down by position, they bunch together many different departments. You could be interviewing with someone in real estate, loan syndications, securitizations (IB), etc. I suppose they want prospective interns to get a feel for every part of the bank.

    On the super day they bump this up a level. They put you up in a swanky hotel in Pittsburgh (Omni) for a meet and greet with employees from every segment of the bank and hold interviews the next day. It's structure so you'll have 3 or 4 rounds of 2 on 1 thirty minute interviews with associates and directors from a variety of departments. In between interviews you have anywhere from fifteen minutes to an hour to socialize with the other interviewees and PNC analysts who are there to keep you company and give you further insight into the positions in a less formal setting.

    1st round interview was on campus. Mostly behavioral. Why PNC? and other questions in that nature. Was invited for super-day in Pittsburgh. One of the biggest superdays I have ever been to- 90 or so people were invited. They were hiring for both Pittsburgh and New York offices. We met with four interviewers and we got to know their groups a little better. At the end we ranked what groups we wanted and what we didn't want.
