    Financial Analyst Program Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Wells Fargo in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online on the one day that Wells was accepting applications. Several weeks later I received an email invite to listen to a presentation on the program.

    A while later I had my phone interview with a woman in their NY office. I was slightly put off that she called me from a Starbucks, I disregarded it and had a good interview.

    She asked some basic questions and then progressed into more difficult questions. None were terribly hard. We ended up getting into an interesting discussion about her job, but I was irked because she basically refused to ask me about my actual job. She said your experience looks very good, but I'm not going to get into that. I found that very odd.

    I later found out over a month and a half later through an automated email that I would not be receiving an offer.
