Personal Banker I (SAFE) Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Orem, UT

Application Details

I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Wells Fargo in March 2012.

Interview Details

There were a bunch of people in the same room with 3 managers looking to hire for different branch locations. It included roleplay scenarios and a secondary interview with the branch manager after we passed the initial phase. Once one of the managers asks you to consider a position in their branch, the other managers cannot extend an offer of employment until you reject the first offer. This makes it hard to tell if you can give up a position that is offered to you at a location that you would rather not work in because you don't know if the other manager will extend an offer until after you turn down the first offer. This causes individuals to accept positions in locations that they would rather not work at out of fear that it will be the only offer you will get.

    Interview Details

    It took a while. The manager didn't seem to know what she was doing, she was not prepared. I was asked to be there at a time and had to wait about an hour before the interview started. I was asked a set of questions from a generic paper printed from the company website.

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Wells Fargo in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Group interview with five other candidates over a two hour period. Spent most of the time simply listening to other peoples responses to questions. The process was not very generic as everyone addressed the same questions. None of the questions were designed to reveal financial knowledge or personality characteristics in dealing with clients.

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Wells Fargo in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    During my application they asked a questionnaire, right after they said they'll be scheduling a phone interview. It was quite quick. For the phone interview they asked pretty standard questions about my work history and why I'd be a good fit at Wells Fargo. After the phone interview, I was asked when would be a best time to setup a face to face interview. I only had one face interview, it went very well, thy asked more about my work history, plus about how my sales performance has been in the passed. Just like any company that is looking to make a profit they ask about sales performance. An hour later I was called for a job offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Most unexpected question was how I would be able to bring in foot traffic. Not that it's something you wouldn't do trying to bring in business. However, the first time I've been asked this in a interview.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Simple, I didn't negotiate because the offer was better than expected.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, received a phone interview with an out of town recruiter to set up an interview 4 days later. I attended an interview with 4 store managers (no pressure haha) and they each took turns asking questions. I received a call 1 week later with an offer pending background check and approval from upper management for an overhire. I got a call the following Monday with the official offer and details for salary. Salary was more than expected as I had no banking experience, so I did not negotiate. Overall an easy process.

    Interview Questions
    • Typical sales and customer service questions.....i.e. how did you go above and beyond for a customer, how do you handle difficult customers, how do you reach your goals on a slow day.....   Answer Question
