I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group (Pittsburgh, PA) in September 2016.

I first was referred by an employee, then I was contacted by a HR person within the division. I basically walked them through my resume, and they informed me that they will contact me again. Then I was contacted by the HR again who then wanted to schedule a phone interview with a supervisor of the division. Did the phone interview and did not hear back after the phone interview.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group.

    One phone interview, then two interviews with managers, and a final interview with branch management team. If you do well in your interviews, you will receive an offer which is basically the same for all new hires with no negotiation option.

    Negotiation

    There is very little negotiation with salary - Its generally about 45K+a meager inventive bonus unless you work at a few of the very good branches.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group.

    Interview

    There was one over the phone interview and two in person interviews. The final round was a surprise panel interview with a financial advisor, bank manager and regional manager. Most of the questions were about relationship building and "tell me about a time when." I think my mistake was not living close enough to the location, they seemed concerned about my commute.
