I applied through other source and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in March 2012.

Interview Details – Most interviews here start with a recruiter screen, then if they like you they will talk about the next steps in the process. They will let you know when to expect a follow-up, normally each stage of the process takes one week. One situation the phone screen to the offer letter went from July to December.The key thing is to be specific with your responses with HR. Next step usually involves interviews with team members than finally the hiring manager. Some managers have very specific ideas about what they want it's your job to figure out what that is. Sometimes the person you think you are working for doesn't need you and hired you for another lesser manager on the team. They don't do direct hires with some titles you have to work as a consultant first. It helps to have a contact that can refer you to what agency they use or can refer you to someone who can mentor your career. Apply for any position across the nation, if they like you they will let you train locally and work remotely. Pay close attention to payscale zones, what you think you salary is and what it is can be in reality varies from division to office location.
