    Commercial Banking Financial Analyst Summer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Oklahoma City, OK
    Anonymous Employee in Oklahoma City, OK
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interviewing process was very comfortable and well laid out. They really made sure that I was kept up to date with the process and contacted me very quickly after both 1st and 2nd round interviews. Both 1st round and 2nd round were very comfortable and relaxed. They really just wanted to get a feel for your basic understanding of the financial world and how you would fit in at their 10 person office.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got an email on a Wednesday to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview was Friday and I was asked to come in Monday. The interview was with four people (two at a time). They asked a lot of questions about my resume, one behavioural question, and accounting related questions. They were in the beginning stages so said don't expect to hear back for a couple weeks.

    Got an email and was asked to come into a different office and interview there. I interviewed one on one with four people. The interview was just conversation making sure I was a good fit. I was offered the interview the next day.
