    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Wells Fargo in June 2015.

    Interview

    Group interview with 10-14 people. Teach you a little about the company & ask questions about sales & customer service (greatest accomplishment, tell me a time when..., etc). Expect to be there for 2hours because they go around in a circle telling stories. Make sure to keep it short, sweet & relevant. A lot of people lost their track of though & seemed to have rambled on. Did not make them look very professional. If you did well, you'll be called to set up an interview with the manager of the location you're being considered at. Finally, a final interview with a big boss-regional manager of southern Nevada or some sort. If deemed the best candidate for the position, you get a background check & credit check.

    Reasons for Declining

    Paid holidays & vacation time were really tempting but based on reviews on Glassdoor & my friends who had been Wells Fargo personal bankers before, I decided the stress I could expect to be pressured to meet ridiculous sales goals was not worth it. I also had accepted another job offer with a higher starting salary.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Redwood City, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online, took a test and received an email for a group interview the same day. I chose a time slot that was 5 days away so that I could have some time to prepare. I was pretty nervous about it since I had never done a group interview before and wasn't sure how to stand out in the crowd. Lucky for me, I was the only person scheduled for the interview that day. So the group interview actually because an one-on-one session.

    The interview asked me a few standard questions starting with "Please introduce yourself and why you want to work for Wells Fargo", he then asked if I had encountered any difficult situations with a customers and how I resolved the problem. The third question was what was my biggest achievement professionally. I had prepared answers for all these questions, so I did pretty well. The interviewer then explained that he really liked me and implied that he would move my profile along. He informed me that the response could be longer than 5 days (max wait time for second interview.....if any) cause of the holidays. He gave me his business card and asked me to give me a call if I didn't hear back from them with 2 weeks. We then chatted for a couple minutes about holiday plans and stuff as a wrap-up. The whole interview lasted about 40 minutes.

    I got a call from a branch manager the next day asking me to go in for the second interview. I'm very excited......haven't done the interview yet. I'll update this review with more information on it when I'm done with it next Monday.

    Wish me luck, guys!

    Interview

    Recruiter offered to reschedule but didn't reschedule. The first interview was a breeze yet was not chosen for the second round although more experienced and a better communicator.

    Maybe the job posting should read "experience: 1 yr or more but less than 2 years".

    three step process: phone interview, panel interview, and branch interview. basic interview questions testing common sense, morality, and ability to sell. Really sell yourself on customer service skills. It's really huge at branch level because you get secret shopped and surveyed
