Recruiting and Hiring Process
Thank you for your interest in joining First Commonwealth Bank. Here’s a brief overview of our recruiting and hiring process to help you understand the steps and timing involved.
Where to Begin
We post new positions regularly, so stop by our ‘Careers’ section and apply for positions that interest you and sound like a good fit for your qualifications.
First, search our available jobs to find a position that is right for you, one that matches your background and experience and aligns with your career goals.
Second, register for (or update) your online profile to tell us why you want to join our First Commonwealth team.
To register for our Career Center account, we’ll ask you for
- A valid email address
- How you heard about working for First Commonwealth
- Your contact information
- Your educational background
- Your resume/employment history
We encourage you to create your profile today even if you don’t locate the right career opportunity. Human Resources regularly search this database when seeking qualified candidates for open positions. Be sure to make the information in that profile comprehensive to ensure we find your profile in our search when applicable.
If you have previously registered for an online profile and need to update your contact information, educational background, or resume/employment history, please contact us at email@example.com to learn how to update your online profile.
Third, after you have registered for your profile, create ‘myJobAGENT’, a unique and personalized way for you to find positions that are tailored for you. With ‘myJobAGENT’, you can set up e-mail alerts to let you know when new opportunities become available.
Fourth, use your profile to submit your application for the appropriate position(s). On average, the application process should take no more than 20 minutes to complete.
All candidates applying for a position with First Commonwealth are required to complete an online profile. If you are an individual with a qualified disability, you may request an accommodation to complete this task by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (724)463-4779.
After you have applied, you will receive an e-mail confirming that we have received your application to join our team. Human Resources will review your profile and resume against the qualifications and selected candidates will be contacted to discuss next steps.
Due to the high volume of applications, we are not able to provide you with additional status updates after we receive your application; however, if you are being considered for a position, you will be contacted directly by either one of our Hiring Managers or by Human Resources.
If we determine that this position does not match your qualifications to move you to the interview phase, your will receive a notification via email and your profile will remain active in our system to be considered for other career opportunities.
If you are contacted by a Hiring Manager or Human Resources, they will review your resume, explain what happens next and answer any questions. Depending on the opportunity, you may be invited to take an assessment or attend an interview.
Candidates selected for employment generally receive a verbal offer, followed by a written offer. Standard background checks take place at this time.
Setting a Start Date
Once an offer is accepted, a start date will be agreed upon. Your employee onboarding activities will begin shortly after you accept your offer and set a start date.
Best of luck in your Career Search and thank you for considering joining our First Commonwealth team!
