Commercial Lending Intern Interview

Commercial Lending Intern
Chicago, IL

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

Interview Details – Had an on-campus interview which consisted of behavioral and technical questions. Was called in to have interviews at the company the following week. At the company, there were 8 interviews each 30 minutes long and consisted again of both technical and behavioral questions.

Interview Question – How do the three financial statements relate to each other and which one would you look at if you only had to choose one?   Answer Question

Commercial and Corporate Lending Summer Internship Interview

Commercial and Corporate Lending Summer Internship

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Wells Fargo.

Interview Details – They invited me to a preinterview dinner the night before. Most of the interviewers were there, and they just talked to us about the company. A lot of fellow participants asked them about interview questions and they simply told us the answer (what's the most important financial statement? ans: cash flow).

Interview Question – There were no unexpected questions. But make sure to ask good questions. And if they ask you about which financial statement is the most important when making an assessment, the answer is cash flow statement.   View Answer

Financial Analyst Summer Internship-Commercial Lending Interview

Financial Analyst Summer Internship-Commercial Lending
San Diego, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Wells Fargo in February 2013.

Interview Details – Received an interview through my university's career services office. I was interviewed by two employees who were not HR personnel and were giving their first interviews. They started with basic behavioral questions about obstacles overcome and the like. Later moved to technical questions about balance sheets items and how to evaluate a potential lending customer. Finally, they asked for a current financial crisis occurring and ask specifics to tell if you understand it. One interviewer asked a majority of the questions while the other took notes.

Interview Question – While discussing the three items from financial statements that a lender would want to look at, they asked what other things(non-financials) might you want to review of the customer.   View Answer

Difficult Interview

Summer Financial Analyst Commercial and Corporate Lending Interview

Summer Financial Analyst Commercial and Corporate Lending
Champaign, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Wells Fargo in February 2013.

Interview Details – Applied through campus recruiting, interviewed on campus. Interviewer was a high-level guy at Wells and seemed to be above interviewing (and he clearly knew it). Relaxed to the point of being unprofessional. He also clearly did not know anything about the summer analyst program and didn't know how to answer my questions about it. Didn't really know what to make of the situation - pretty odd. Questions ranged from the typical "tell me about yourself" to a weird technical question "what's your favorite financial statement" to "tell me about an issue in the news that affects the economy." It's hard to gauge what they're looking for - both from the questions and from the interviewer's lack of response and engagement. Two days later, received a standard form rejection e-mail from Wells' sever that wasn't even personally addressed to me and didn't even have the position I had interviewed for. Overall a very bad, unclear, and impersonal process. Bad vibes from the beginning. Had I gotten an offer, I definitely would not have accepted.

Interview Question – What's your favorite financial statement?   Answer Question

Commercial Lending Analyst Interview

Commercial Lending Analyst
Sacramento, CA

The process took a day - interviewed at Wells Fargo in November 2011.

Interview Details – Honestly this was the worst interview I've ever had. I've gone through countless interviews since graduation but never had I had someone been so rude and unhelpful. I felt like I was consistently being attacked when I said something he did not agree with.

Interview Question – How do you analyze whether a manufacturing company will have the competency to pay back a 85$ million dollar loan for a merchandise purchase they believe will make them profitable?   View Answer
