    Personal Banker I Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview

    Apllied online which led to a very straight forward phone interview. Softball questions just designed to get you to talk about your background. They then set me up for a group interview. I thought this was a bit nerve wracking since they asked questions and went around the room with everyone answering the question one by one.

    Treasury Mgt Sales Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Phoenix, AZ) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a phone interview. 1 hr phone screen, 7 behavioral questions. The interviewer was super rude and would interrupt any answer to a question that she thought was too long. Grilled me as if I was on trial about why I wanted to leave my current role, if I'd spoken to my managers, what was their response, my lack of sales experience etc. I found that interesting because all of this information was in my cover letter and resume, so she had a problem with it she shouldn't have selected me for a phone screen. She also let me know that this is just one step in a very intense process. The way she said it, I felt that she was saying its an honor to get through this process vs. this should be a mutual fit and thank you for your consideration. An important sidenote: I am interviewing with a much larger(better) bank for the same role, and the experience has been much more pleasant and conversational. They made sure they sold the bank to me instead of me just trying to sell myself to them. Save yourself the pain and apply to a one of the bigger banks.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Wells Fargo in July 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online then had a screening with general questions. Was nice that they had the option to do either phone or email scheduling as it's hard for me to get phone calls where I'm currently at. Had a phone interview which was about 10-15 minutes which went over the position that I was applying for as well as some of the expectations should I be hired. Was told how many people they were hiring and where in town hiring was happening.

    Part Time Teller Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Wells Fargo (San Diego, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    One of the first steps I took was going online and creating an account on the careers page for Wells Fargo. I applied to multiple positions and I received an email with interview times to choose from. The interview I attended was a group interview with seven other candidates, including the recruiting officer. The recruiter asked us three questions and we had to answer them in STAR format (Situation, Action and Result). The recruiter then told us that they would call us if they want us, or they would send an email if they did not feel we are fit for the position. Fortunately, I received a phone call and a few more afterwards. Currently I am waiting to have an interview with a branch manager.
