    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group (Philadelphia, PA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of a half hour phone interview by a non-technical recruiter. The recruiter did not understand some of the questions on the script. To top it off, the offered salary was set very low for the Philadelphia area.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    Meet the recruiter at an on-campus career fair. I received a phone call about setting up a first round interview (over the phone) with an employee at PNC. It was pretty simple. Basic behavioral questions about my resume experience and why I was interested in working with the company.

    I received a call back saying I was invited to Super Day for second round interviews and networking in Pittsburgh. I interviewed with two individuals. The questions were more tech based (eg. my experience with any technology, how did i use it in previous internships and school, etc.) and a few behavioral.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR for the interview, when I accepted they said they would email me the particulars. I had to call back to ask for the email with the location and name of contact the day of the interview. As for the interview itself - It was very uncomfortable. Taken in room with panel of four. Questions were read from a script and repetitive.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group (Philadelphia, PA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Fairly short and simple, the interviewer was kind and personable. He started off with questions about the job position. Explain why you want this job, what you expect from it, why are you interested in this position, why PNC and financial industry. Then they ask a lot of behavioral and STAR questions. "Tell me about a time..." Interview took 30 minutes. Haven't heard back from them yet.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group (Philadelphia, PA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    It was a group interview with about 10 people and they go around and ask you all the same questions. I think there were 5 questions that were mostly behavioral. It was a comfortable and relaxed environment. If they like you they'll send you on another interview with a branch manager or assistant manager. I also had a phone prescreen before the HR interview. You can take your time to answer questions. Also be prepared to ask questions. If you throw some info about the company they will be impressed

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group (Philadelphia, PA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Fine until the day of the interview. The hiring manager couldn't have seemed less interested in meeting me. Left me standing in the lobby of the building for over fifteen minutes and when he finally came down for me rushed me into a conference room where he must have looked at his watch a dozen times. It was the Friday of Memorial Day weekend. I found out on the following Tuesday that they offered the position to someone else - an internal candidate. I had a weird vibe that something was up before the interview but didn't want to cancel. I should have. It was a not a good experience and left me with a very poor taste in my mouth.

    Bottom line - treat candidates with respect. Be honest. Follow up. Don't make fools of people.

    Financial Sales Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group (Philadelphia, PA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Although, I was early the interview started late. The manager didn't seem to be experienced enough or open-minded enough to be conducting an interview. This manager didn't possess certain skills and openly seemed to attempt to find something "wrong" with my resume. After naming all the qualities that were being looked for and it being confirmed that I have them, I began to consider that this manager may have been looking for something specific that would be more discriminatory. By the way that certain sentences were phrased and views expressed I believed that I may have been discriminated against for example, I was expected to be less professional and less intelligent based on my ethnicity.

    This manager didn't possess certain qualities that I have seen of a great interviewers and seemed to have already come to certain conclusions about me and my experiences before any questions were asked (the facial expressions showed this) and those conclusions were kept even after I provided a way for the reasoning to be understand in its entirety. The interview was conducted recently and therefore it is too early to be presented with an offer at all.

    On a side note, I was greeted exceptionally well by the tellers. They were professional, friendly, and extended those same greet traits to each and every customer that I saw come in.
