    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview

    After you apply online you choose a date for a group interview.

    You are asked to introduce yourself and say what your most recent job was.

    After that you are asked a series of typical job interview questions.

    The process took around two hours.

    You should either receive a call within the next 72 hours for a second 1:1 interview or if you are not suitable for the position you will receive an e-mail within the week. (I never received either.)

    Interview

    3 step process....recruiter, hiring manager and panel. If applying outside your living area, all interviews are over phone, which can be difficult for them to get to know you. Recruiter is very helpful in preparing you for next interview (if you make it through)

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview

    The interview process is normal for the industry. Formal dress, three interviewers asking smart questions trying to poke your brain and figure out if you would be a good fit in their organization for the advertised role. I could answer some of the math questions, but some of my answers apparently did not satisfy them as they were formulated in generalized mathematical formalism and not in the simple terms used in that industry.he interview process is normal for the industry.

    Phone interview first, then if you move on to next round you will have a onsite interview with the hiring manager and sometimes have a 2nd onsite interview with management. Sometimes the managers already know who they are going to hire and still have to interview several people.

    Interview

    Be careful. You'll be so excited about the job/promotion that they'll lowball you on salary If you are offered the job pleaase hold your ground on your salary requirement. It's a crying shame what they'll offer up front and then claim there's no way to increase it more.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview with recruiter, followed by phone interview with hiring manager. Separate phone interview with regional manager and 2 in-person interviews. Majority of questions were "fit" related, but a lot of emphasis was placed on explaining specific projects worked on and the results of those projects. Basic accounting knowledge is essential. Should know cash flow statement well and effects of transactions across the various financial statements. Accounting knowledge seemed to be more important in the later rounds. Initial interviews were more geared toward fit questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain to me the discounted cash flow model   Answer Question
    • A company buys and asset half with cash and half with credit. Explain to me the effects across the 3 financial statements.   Answer Question
    • Tell me about a time when you worked on a project with a group of people you did not know and what did you do to get to know the group?   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Winston-Salem, NC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Quick and Easy process, I applied online. HR sent me an email for a phone interview, HR interviewed me first via phone and I did a Face to Face interview when I made it to the next stage. As I hadn't done Accounting since University I wasn't prepared for all of the Accounting questions. I remembered some of the basics but some of the questions were a little too in depth for someone that is coming from a different area in Finance.
