    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PNC Financial Services Group (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    The first interview was the most difficult for me. He asked probably 3 technical questions, the rest were behavioral. About two or three weeks later, I was offered a super day interview where I was interviewed by three professionals. It was a pretty structured behavioral interview. I was free to talk about myself AFTER they asked their list of questions. Mainly behavioral with one or two simple technical questions (Describe the three financial statements)

Following the phone interview I received a call by a recruiter inviting me to a superday in Pittsburgh. The superday consisted of three 30 minute interviews throughout the day with various groups within the risk department. The day began promptly at 8am, and interviews for all 30-40 candidates were completely wrapped up by 2pm. Breakfast and lunch was provided, as well as a hotel room and a rental car through reimbursement.

    Customer Care Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PNC Financial Services Group (Pittsburgh, PA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I submitted an application and didn't hear back for a long time- at least a month. The recruiter then messaged me saying that my info had slipped past, so I'm not sure if that is a common experience. Anyway, I had a very basic phone interview, and was invited to apply for a different position. About 2 weeks later I went to an in-person group interview at one of their Customer Care Centers. It seemed like the candidates were extremely varied for the position. I sat next to a lady who had 30 years of experience and someone fresh out of high school. Be prepared to talk about yourself, a little about your background and why you are interested in PNC in front of all the other candidates as well as various managers. We were then split up into groups of 4 and interviewed simultaneously with two members of the staff. Everyone in the group answers the same questions, so it may be helpful to assert yourself and answer the questions first or second if you already have an appropriate answer prepared.

    Interview Questions

    • Many of the questions were typical interview fare, although some seemed negative-multiple questions about mistakes you've made in the past, stuff like that. I think the point is that they want you to show how you learned or grew as an employee and how you resolved the issue   Answer Question
