Personal Banker I Interview

Personal Banker I
Redwood City, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in February 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online. Received an invitation to a group interview the next day. Had group interview a few days later (3 applicants in my group). Received a phone call from recruiter before I even got home from the banking center, inviting me back for a panel interview the following week. Panel interview was 9 applicants, with 4 Branch Managers conducting the interview. Again I received a call back with an offer the same day. For the interview: Know why you want to work for the company, and give specific examples of why you would be a good fit. Focus on sales experience, and give examples of times you've gone above and beyond for a customer or a time you turned a negative experience into a positive. Quick role play at the end. They give you a card of bullet points to cover. Be personable and make the conversation natural and your own, instead of just reading off the card. The easiest way to sell yourself is to just be outgoing and non-mechanic.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work for Wells Fargo? Why would you be a good fit, based on your sales experience?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Offer will vary depending on location and experience. I was offered 40k and accepted.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Wells Fargo in December 2011.

Interview Details – The application is online. A pre-screen phone interview is conducted first with basic questions on how certain situations were handled while on a previous job. If the phone screen goes well, then a group face-to-face interview is set up at the Redwood City, CA location. The interviewer will ask the situational questions again such as, "tell me about a time where you didn't reach your goals, so what did you do?" The interviewer will also go over your resume. If the recruiter likes you, then you will be forwarded to one of the managers of a store to interview with him or her.

Interview Question – I don't recall the most difficult question, for the questions were straightforward.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Base pay offer is approximately $18.00 without prior banking experience, and prior to the licenses.

Financial Analyst Interview

Financial Analyst
San Francisco, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Wells Fargo in November 2013.

Interview Details – Applied via on-campus recruiting in late September. Applied for Commercial Real Estate lending. First interview was 30 minutes. Questions were mostly behavioral, but some were technical. Interned at the another bank before so the technical questions were simple for me. Didn't get a call-back about the second round until 6+ weeks later. Second interview was at Irvine for a position in SF. Second interview was divided into 2 sessions of 30-minutes each. Interviewers were all SVP for the department that I was applying for. Questions were half behavioral and half technical. Stumped on some technical questions. Interviewers would prompt you further if you were stuck though. Emphasized that Wells Fargo was my first choice. Interviewers from both first round and second round had lists of prepared questions.

Interview Question – What is the difference between discount rate and cap rate?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Tried to negotiate salary, relocation package, start date, etc. but were all rejected. Wells Fargo does give an above-market salary though so difficult to negotiate.
