    It was very short and routine. They want to know how well you can sell. Almost every question is about your sales experience and numbers. I did not feel like they cared at all about who I was.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and completed assessment. At the end of the assessment, I was asked to schedule an interview time. The first interview is designed for a group setting, however I was the only person scheduled for the session which allowed for a more personal interaction. At the end of the session I was offered a second interview with the branch manager. Another typical interview, where I was asked about my sales experience and specific customer scenarios. This interview also ended in me being offered a third and final interview, for which I am still waiting to schedule.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time you were able to make a negative customer experience positive.

      Tell me how you would sell a customer on an item they didn't find necessary.

    Interview Details

    Be careful. You'll be so excited about the job/promotion that they'll lowball you on salary If you are offered the job pleaase hold your ground on your salary requirement. It's a crying shame what they'll offer up front and then claim there's no way to increase it more.
