    Teller Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Wells Fargo (San Francisco, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I went to their job fair and from there they told me to do the online application (which I had already done) and in about three days I got an email to schedule a group interview for the following week. There were a few introduction questions and then we proceeded with three questions. They said we would either get a phone call if they want us to proceed with the interview process or an email if we got rejected.

    Interview Questions

    • First, they asked us to introduce ourselves with the introduction questions they had for us such as;
      -describe your past working experiences
      -How did you hear about the job
      -Why did you choose Wells Fargo
      -Why were you interested in the Teller position

      The three questions were:
      -What is a goal you set for yourself, and what was challenging about that.
      - Describe a time that was challenging during your last job. What did you learn from that about yourself and how did you deal with it.
      -Describe on of your biggest accomplishments, what was challenging about that and what did you learn about yourself.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Wells Fargo (San Francisco, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Phone screen prior to in person. Interviewer asked a number of questions about what I have been doing. In the end, she and I both agreed that this would not be a good fit. I have interviewed multiple times at Wells over quite a few years and have never been hired. In one case I'm sure I scared the hiring manager because she remarked that I knew more than she did.

    Interview Questions

    • In depth about use cases. They are very big on use cases. To me, use cases are just one part of a strong software methodology. If you don't get the business process or ERD correct you'll end up with a mess.   1 Answer

    Personal Banker I (SAFE) Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Redwood City, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online, took a test and received an email for a group interview the same day. I chose a time slot that was 5 days away so that I could have some time to prepare. I was pretty nervous about it since I had never done a group interview before and wasn't sure how to stand out in the crowd. Lucky for me, I was the only person scheduled for the interview that day. So the group interview actually because an one-on-one session.

    The interview asked me a few standard questions starting with "Please introduce yourself and why you want to work for Wells Fargo", he then asked if I had encountered any difficult situations with a customers and how I resolved the problem. The third question was what was my biggest achievement professionally. I had prepared answers for all these questions, so I did pretty well. The interviewer then explained that he really liked me and implied that he would move my profile along. He informed me that the response could be longer than 5 days (max wait time for second interview.....if any) cause of the holidays. He gave me his business card and asked me to give me a call if I didn't hear back from them with 2 weeks. We then chatted for a couple minutes about holiday plans and stuff as a wrap-up. The whole interview lasted about 40 minutes.

    I got a call from a branch manager the next day asking me to go in for the second interview. I'm very excited......haven't done the interview yet. I'll update this review with more information on it when I'm done with it next Monday.

    Wish me luck, guys!

    Personal Banker I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Vacaville, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Vacaville, CA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    The only way to get into this company is making it past the group interview. If you aren't confident in yourself around another people you'd find the group interview very difficult. I'd suggest talking as much about yourself when you are given the opportunity to. There are anywhere from 2-13 people in the panel along with yourself...

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Wells Fargo (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Initial on-campus interview, then a writing assignment, and an on site interview to follow. Took over 5 weeks to respond and the recruiter was very unresponsive over email. The interviews contained a few technical questions- all of which were based on accounting concepts. Mostly the interview is behavioral and they read questions off a script.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Wells Fargo (San Francisco, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Over the past two weeks, I have been contacted by two staffing agencies and one recruiter about two different positions at Wells Fargo. My comments focus around background information that I, as the candidate, was told I would have to provide in order to have my candidacy advance.

    One staffing firm asked for my FULL SSN and MMDD while the other staffing firm asked for FULL SSN and FULL MMDDYY BEFORE an interview took place. Perhaps both agencies are competing to land a candidate at Wells Fargo but providing a SSN at this point of an interview process is not necessary and raises privacy and security concerns. Regarding a full birthdate -- depending upon your age, it allows the employer to be discriminatory. and rather unscrupulous.

    The recruiter contacted me about a different position and said I had to provide two references before I would be considered for a contract job. I hesitated because I have not done this before for any position unless offered the job. Also, I do not want to exhaust my references to speak on my behalf when the likelihood of getting an interview is uncertain as well as my interest in the job.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Wells Fargo (San Francisco, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Interview process consisted of 1:1 on-campus interview and then full day on-site interview with 4 different people. Small writing sample to turn in beforehand.

    Asked a mix or behavioral and technical questions. They want to get to know you and see if you'll be a good (bank) culture fit. Technical questions were similar to others posted on Glassdoor. Ex: Is EBITDA a good measure of cash flow? What are some factors to consider in lending to a company? Debt vs. Equity?

    Advice: Be 100% confident in your abilities. It's okay to say you don't know, but give an educated answer. They're testing to see if you maintain composure.

    Teller Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Oakland, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I applied about a little over a month ago online. Took the assessment and right after was asked to schedule a group interview date. I tried scheduled a date and it kept saying that it was not any interview dates available in my area so maybe a couple days later they sent a email saying that more dates are available so I ended up scheduling and then the day before my interview they said that my interview was canceled and I have to reschedule. So I tried to do that and again no dated available. A couple days later dated became available and schedule. So went to the group interview it was about 6 of us. I was told it was suppose to be more but they never showed up. "Thank God". Was about a hour long. We introduced ourselves and answered the questions why we want to work at WF, and where did we previously worked. Then watched a video on the Teller position. Then she asked tell me a time you went above and beyond your job to please a customer, and what was you past sales experience and sales goals and how well did you accomplished them. Then she tells us a little about what's next if you past the group interview. I was the one who was voluntarily answering first and was really on point. Exactly a week later they called me for a second interview at the branch that I applied to that same day and was interviewed by the branch manager and her assistant. I feel that my interview went really well and that was just less than 24hrs ago so I'm hoping to receive a call back within a couple days. I'm really praying that I get this job because the hours works perfect with the fact I have a 5 month old and it won't get in the way of going to church. Please pray that I get it.
