I applied online – interviewed at Wells Fargo.
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.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Wells Fargo (Charlotte, NC).
Required that I answer questions first before they called me in for an interview. Next I was interviewed by panel of three higher-level executives. They said they were going to conduct a first interview and then call me back for a second interview but when they couldn't find a better candidate they just offered me the job after the first interview. Intense first interview. Each interviewer had a series of questions for me to answer and would then probe further. The interview was at 9:30am EST and lasted for about an hour in a conference room.
- Regardless of question, you must use the STAR method (Situation, Task, Action and Result) to respond. Cite a specific example of how you (not the team) responded to a specific situation and the "successful" result that you (not the team) achieved. Answer Question
They offered me $65,000 plus a 10% bonus. The HR person indicated that there wasn't room for negotiation as that was their best offer. In hindsight, I do not believe that but that is what I was told.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Wells Fargo (Charlotte, NC) in January 2015.
First interview was a screening interview by a contractor. He was very professional, but couldn't provide any details relating to the benefits offered. Round 2 interview was via video conference. The hiring manager was very friendly and outgoing, however his associate/co-manager was rigid and very blunt. His body language did not read very well.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Wells Fargo in October 2014.
Applied online and received a contact from a general recruiter 2 days later. Phone interview at was with a technical recruiter and most questions were about my background and what processes and programs I used, and what programming skills I had. A panel interview was scheduled for the following week.
The panel interview was not technical at all. It was mostly fit questions that came from what looked like a standard question list at Wells Fargo. One interviewer (hiring manager) was in the room, and another (department head) was on the phone.
Wells Fargo seems to have specific budgets for positions and will not negotiate on top of them. I received an offer at the top end of such a range.
- Have you ever built or designed a business or operations process from the ground up? If so, how did you do it, and what problems did you run into? Answer Question
No formal negotiation, but was offer was close to the top of my range

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ months – interviewed at Wells Fargo (Saint Louis, MO) in February 2014.
I work as a contractor, I was offered a position in writing, signed with my staffing agency, was told not to give notice at my current job until I had a start date. Then the offer was pulled back because there was a delay with project start. I had given up on this job but ended up getting called to return for another interview and was selelcted to start (6 months later).
- Would you be comfortable in this position since it is not a management (leadership) position and you have always managed people in the past. 1 Answer

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Wells Fargo (Minneapolis, MN).
Consisted of two phone interviews (mainly due to difference in location between school and internship). First phone interview was fairly straight-forward and covered my basic experience, education, and some basic behavioral questions. The second phone interview was with my potential manager and was more in-depth about how my experience shaped my future career aspirations, leadership and project experience, class experiences, subject interests, future education interests, and why I was interested in the internship. A very good back and forth discussion that delved into whether or not I would be a good fit for the position.
