The hiring process at PNC
This varies considerably and is dependent on experience and the type of route that you want to enter PNC. The recruitment phase embodies the following:
All applicants should familiarize themselves with the online application process. You can search for jobs as well as sign up for job alerts online. Once a submission has been received by PNC expect that your application will be reviewed fairly quickly. If you have been successful, you will be notified and next steps will be confirmed. It is always advisable that you do not rely on the one position that you may have been lucky to be shortlisted for. Candidates have a quota of applying for five positions over a seven day period.
There are some positions that once you have been shortlisted before you are even offered an interview there will be a pre-employment assessment. This can come in a variety of ways – via the phone or online. Do not fret, if you have been invited to pre-screen so will other candidates. These have been designed to aid recruiters to further short-list their candidates. Pre-screening will look at your skills, knowledge and abilities for the role. If you are invited to participate, make sure that you are prepared to dedicate time to complete this successfully. Treat it as an interview. Many of these tests will not allow you to take it multiple times, so being spot on the first time around is a bonus.
If you pass the pre-screening and your qualifications and/or experience matching with the job role expect to be called for an interview.
STUDENTS & GRADUUATES
PNC have specific openings for students and graduates throughout the year. Many of those accepted in either program will go onto have rewarding careers at PNC. The process in terms of application will be the same as that for any other job seeker. However, candidates should set their search and/or preferences for student and graduate opportunities.
CURRENT PNC EMPLOYEES
If you are a current PNC employee, you will have specific access to PNC’s job board and you will be able to see other details about the role that may not be posted to the external public. PNC are an equal opportunities employer, and the screening process for internal candidates will be just as rigorous as those set for external candidates.
Preparing for the interview
Most candidates will be in touch with the recruiter in the first instance. Their job is not to dissuade you from applying but to make sure the right candidates are vetted for the role. They are responsible for preparing the candidate for meeting the hiring manager. Use this as an opportunity to learn as much as you can about the applied for department or hiring manager.
Interviews can be conducted either by phone or face-to-face. Do not think that a phone interview will be any easier than a face-to-face one. You will be expected to prepare to the same degree. If you do have an initial phone interview, ensure that the area that you will be taking the phone is just as prepared. Lock animals away, do not try to take the interview in a noisy place and ensure that if you have papers in front of you the interviewer cannot hear prolonged paper rustling. Your aim is to be as professional as possible. As you are not face-to-face sometimes it can be difficult to gauge your audience as you are missing facial expressions etc. This is why it is particularly important that you listen carefully to all questions. Ask the interviewer to repeat the question if you are unsure.
If you invited to interview face-to-face, make sure that you arrive in plenty of time. Dress appropriately and be strategic. Prepare answers for your goals, decisions, experiences and accomplishments. Intimately know your strengths and weaknesses and use any resources you may have for further preparation. The PNC website is a very good tool for this.
