The PNC Financial Services Group provides retail and business banking; residential mortgage banking; specialized services for corporations and government entities, including corporate banking, real estate finance, and asset-based lending; wealth management; and asset management. The company has more than 2,900 branches, 7,300 ATM machines, and a range of online banking services. PNC provides consumer and small business banking primarily in 19 states and the District of Columbia, with residential mortgage banking and corporate and institutional banking offices across the continental United States.
The company regularly attends military recruiting fairs throughout the country. In addition, PNC has established military partnerships with organizations including Student Veterans of America, RecruitMilitary, MBAVeterans, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Hiring our Heroes program.
The company believes that military values align well with its own core values, including customer focus, diversity, integrity, performance, quality of life, respect and teamwork. The company offers a diverse set of products, services, and career opportunities for active military, veterans, members of the National Guard, and reservists. In 2012, PNC launched a Military Employee Business Resource Group (MERBG) as a forum for discussing topics, ideas, and initiatives relevant to veterans and to provide professional development, mentorship, and networking opportunities.
David Enick is a treasury consulting officer for PNC, helping treasury-management sales officers address core corporate treasury functions of clients and prospects. He joined PNC in 2008.
He also spent six years in the U.S. Army National Guard, attaining the rank of sergeant. He started his military career as a 13F Forward Observer, but was reclassified as a 31B Military Police Officer for Operation Iraqi Freedom II.
“There are a number of skills that I developed in the military that I utilize on a regular basis in my current job,” Enick said. “These include planning, communication, time management, understanding the importance of policies and procedures, and being confident in my abilities. Another skill that helps me on the job is adaptability. This helps you to be better prepared for change and quickly adjust to those changes.”
Enick said a similar culture is one reason veterans will enjoy working at PNC. “PNC offers competitive benefits, training, and a culture based on values similar to those in the military such as respect, teamwork, integrity, and diversity,” he said. “PNC is not only supportive of hiring veterans but also understands the value and skills that veterans can bring to the workforce.”
