Ok Part-Time Job For a College Student

Teller (Former Employee)
Austin, TX

I worked at Wells Fargo part-time for more than a year

ProsThey were super flexible with my school schedule every semester. I had most weekends off, and met some really great people.

ConsThey push sales way too hard, it was their number 1 priority, not customer service. It was bad enough to leave the job. My managers were stressed and pushed too far for the sales. I had the assistant branch manager scream at me and make me cry, because he said i "looked" at him with disrespect. One of the worst experiences in my life.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhat happened to customer service? It was just push push push sales, even if they didn't need anything.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Awful experience my manager must of been on prosaic or Lithium.

Mortgage Collections (Current Employee)
San Antonio, TX

I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than a year

ProsThe employees and how we facilitate to motivate each other,

ConsIf management likes you then your fine if not looked to be fired, Management is tight and covers each other backs even at the expense of the workers, Management has asked fellow coworker to work out the profitability of FMLA personnel to see which they were going to axed. Wells Fargo turn over rational in my class since there is three left out of twenty two, They say care and there for the people don't believe a word of it.

Advice to Senior ManagementWalk your talk and maybe Wells Fargo will have a better reputation.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Horrible management, great co-workers

Teller (Former Employee)
Bellaire, TX

I worked at Wells Fargo full-time for less than a year

ProsThe system was very easy to get accustom to. All the tellers and bankers were great people and easy to get along. Pay was decent.

ConsHorrible manager. Taking 15 minutes off lunch breaks until sales increased, pretty sure that may have been illegal.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

It paid well, but not well enough to overcome the constant push for sales.

Bank Teller (Former Employee)
College Station, TX

I worked at Wells Fargo part-time for less than a year

ProsIt is decent pay as a part-time position. Hours and working days are great. Holidays off (but not paid). Looks great on a resume if you can hang in there. Coworkers are typically competent and great folks.

ConsThere's not a ton of opportunities unless you plan to be a banker or bank manager forever -aka not a diverse set of job opportunities. The rules are strict, reasonably so, but the practice is not.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Kiss your Bonus good bye and then your Job for not reaching it.

Inbound Sales (Current Employee)
Westlake, TX

I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 10 years

ProsPossible to grow and promote from within.

ConsExtreme goal oriented driven, micro management constantly watching and grilling you why your not hitting goals, smaller bonus's. They continually raise their goals your required to meet to even bonus, but remove products or ways to reach your goal. The only way you can reach your goals is to work O.T. and that's only when its available, otherwise kiss your bonus good by and then get written up for missing it and after 3 your fired! When Wachovia became part of us, you all got to big an now the customers are lost and forgotten, as well as all the employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the calls we get from C.S. and then YOU try to provide service to a pissed off customer because they were lied to coming to you. When the reason for their call was never taken care of, yet we are responsible for getting a product sold to them or be reprimanded. What is wrong with this picture? On another point...You all have gotten to big and the little customer is dismissed and fee'd to death, what happened to appreciated our customers? What happened to not being a number? What happened to the old W.F. I use to work for? Shame, shame....

Was happy with the position I was hired for until I was moved during training to a a similar but unrelated position.

Mortgage Underwriter (Current Employee)
Bedford, TX

I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than a year

ProsLarge company with many different career options.

ConsLarge company with little care for the employee. Internal position postings are more of a joke than an option.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen someone excepts a position with a company the expect to continue down that career path. Alterations to this should not be made if it can be avoided. If nothing else can be done give this person the option to move back into the role they were hired for in the first place in it comes available.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Women were subjected to sexual harassment and were considered a snitch and demoted for mentioning these incidents.

ProsStarted with great pay, plenty of overtime, flexible schedule.

ConsHorrible management, constant sexual harassment, punished for seeking help with harassment.

Wells is most likely the worst of the banks to work for.

HMC (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than a year

ProsCompared to other banks, I would say there is only one pro. The had a lot of volume but their practices are slowly taking the one advantage away.

ConsThe are a revolving door company. The entice you with numbers you will never hit. They are the worst paying of the banking industry with the lease amount of aggressive products. If they did purchase every secondary loan to refi people, they would be hurting. Which I feel will start happening

Advice to Senior ManagementHR 101. it cost more to have a revolving door than to pay people a decent wage. Stop nickel and diming employees. Modernize your bank and process. We are out of the horse and carriage era.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Do Not Work at Wells Fargo in San Antonio

Customer Service (Former Employee)
San Antonio, TX

I worked at Wells Fargo full-time for less than a year

ProsNone to share at this time.

ConsWorked at Wells Fargo and left by my choice. Management is outdated, most have worked in San Antonio for over 15 years at the same job. Few have any college education. They do not have a clue about the real world. Age and sex discrimination is high. All they know is sell, sell, sell. It is run like a Used Car Lot.

Advice to Senior ManagementTurn over rate is high because of bad management, not bad hiring. All they want is sales no matter how customers are treated, or if they are serviced properly.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
