    Teller Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Las Vegas, NV) in July 2014.

    Interview

    First is the group interview, the only thing you have to do here is speak up and have good answers. In this interview they let you choose which area of branch you'd like to work in; I put one by my house, but that backfired on me because I ended up not doing well in that store due to the high percentage of regulars - I didn't get any sales. I would recommend putting a store which high sales volume so you can do well. After that is the interview at the branch with the store manager and teller manager. They just want to know your experience, how you handled difficult customers, strengths and weaknesses, and if you have sales experience. Stress any sales experience you have and that you learned a lot from it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Reno, NV) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I was hired internally. I applied, had an in-person interview with Recruiting Manager (would have been a phone interview, but I worked at the same building she did). My manager let me know that I had been set up for an interview. Went to the interview and interviewed with one other Branch Manager than my own.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were very typical. Tell me about a time... Use STAR format.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not able to negotiate. Recruiting Head said I need to talk to Branch Manager, Branch Manager said she doesn't do any of that, that I need to talk to Recruiting Head. I got the run around.

    I went through 4 interviews. The first is a phone interview with a head hunting group. Usually ManPower Group. They ask the usual tell me about yourself, why do you have an interest in this position questions. They have you do 2 scenarios for a mach client interaction. It was very simple. The second was with the Branch Manager and the third with the Market Area President.

    Teller Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Las Vegas, NV
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Wells Fargo (Las Vegas, NV) in September 2012.

    Interview

    The process was a joke. I completed an online app. A recruiter called and scheduled a group interview on Rainbow in Las Vegas. The online instructions gave directions to the location which I followed. As I arrived my GPS was telling me to go 1/4 mile farther but I followed the WF directions which led me to a maze of office buildings, never getting to the location. Went back and followed my GPS and arrived. The facilitator asked for our references which luckily at the last minute I had grabbed since the online instructions did not mention this detail; they however did say not to wear jeans or tennis shoes and to bring a pen (duh). We were asked how far we were willing to drive for $10 hr, up to 20 miles. When applying online you specifically select a certain branch that had the opening so this seemed like the old "bait and switch". At the end she stated we would be emailed a decline or move on to the next step by Friday 4:00 pm. Never go an email, had to check the status of my app online to find I had an offer to a location outside my desired travel distance.

    Interview Questions

    • None were difficult, check online, there are helpful typical questions and be prepared with your own answers.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I applied to work in a certain branch but was offered a position considerably farther than I am willing to drive. A complete waste of time, my online app stated the location I desired to work.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Las Vegas, NV) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Applied online to severall companies and Wells was very quick to contact me and go through the interview process. Step 1 was a phone interview with a recruiter. Step 2 was a group interview at the HR center. Step 3 was a 1:1 interview with a branch manager. Though not always the case, I also had a Step 4, which was another 1:1 with another branch manager. This was because the first 1:1 was for the district and the second was with the manager of the specific branch that I was going to be assigned to.

    Negotiation

    Told very specifically that there was no negotiation allowed. Take it or leave it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Reno, NV) in October 2009.

    Interview

    you're screened on the phone. Play up your sales experience. You go to a group interview where they see if you should be sent to the teller forums or the banker forums. Wear a nice suit, have intelligent answers, talking about how you succeed under sales pressure ( I had no real sales experience but lots of experience meeting quotas and numbers) and they sent me to the banker forum instead of the teller.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Las Vegas, NV) in September 2009.

    Interview

    First, I applied online. After I submitted my application, two days later I received an email from the recruitment center with a link for the online assessment. I clicked on the link for the assessment which took about 30 minutes to complete. After I completed the online assessment, there was a note on the screen instructing me to call the recruitment center for the phone interview which also lasted about 20 - 30 minutes. For two weeks after the phone interview I called the recruitment center for the status of my application and finally I got an interview date. Last was the panel interview which lasted about two hours.
