    It took about 1 month from submitting application to start date. After submitting my application I had a telephone interview where a supervisor described the job, duties & expectations. He then set up an in person interview. I was notified of an offer about 2 weeks after my in person interview. HR is great & very helpful. The training process was very informative.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at First Commonwealth Bank (Johnstown, PA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Good interview process, very understanding friendly interview process. Asked appropriate questions. I had two interviews. Most people said they only had one. One interview was with a group of people in the richland branch where they asked a series of questions. After that interview I had to go to the windber branch for a second interview, in which two people interviewed me and it was more one and one and not as many questions as it was to figure out my personality.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at First Commonwealth Bank (Pittsburgh, PA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and got called the same day. We set up an interview for the following day. I interviewed with the hiring manager and the Lead of Financial Services. It was one of the best interviews I have been to. They asked the basic questions and also gave me a ton of information. What makes you a good fit? Tell me a time you went above and beyond. How would you count out $12,000?

    I learned a lot about what I would be doing and what to expect. They were so sweet and told me I would fit perfect. I sent a thank you email that night and got a reply saying she looks forward to speaking with me soon. About 4 days later they called my references and the next day I got a call with a job offer. Quick and professional process I'm very pleased.
