    Interview

    Took several calls to get to the right person, but was finally able to get a very rushed interview. I felt as if someone else had already been hired and that my interview was simply done as a matter of checking another name off the list. Followup took longer than I expected.

    • The only thing that was unexpected was that there weren't enough questions asked.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2010.

    Interview

    I dont feel respected from the interview. The wired thing was they were looking for citizens or permanent residents while gave an interview opportunity to me, who was international student. I was treated badly and I would never work for the bank. The worst interview I have ever had. They asked me about my resume and other behavioral questions, such as strength and weakness, as well as teamwork and problem solving skills. But the lady said nothing during the interview. And I guess she did not pay enough attention. Perhaps because she got tired. My interview time was not good, almost 5pm in the afternoon.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Des Moines, IA) in April 2008.

    Interview

    The process was very streamlined. I applied online to a couple of different postions within the comapny. A HR lady nterviewed me initailly with basic questions about my job history, projects i worked on, and canned questions about 'problem solving' and 'difficult situations'. This was followed by a 1 on 1 with the hiring manager lasting 3 hours. The questions during this portion focused more on my technical background and the specific skill set I was bringing to the job. They seemed like they really wanted someone who could think on his feet and problem solve. This is exactly how I had billed myself in my resume so I messed pretty well with the role they were trying to fill. Job was offered to me 2 days later, at a salary that was slighly lower than I was looking for(still a big bump from the last job). I accepted and everything turned out exactly as they said it would.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo in January 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted a few weeks later by a manager directly. Scheduled a brief phone interview -- tell me about yourself, your resume, and why you're interested. Light technical questions about financial statements. A week later a second phone interview was held. This one was longer and with three senior managers. Questions were designed to have you recall a particular event (tell me about a time you used...). They requested I respond in the "STAR" format (situation, task, action, result). Light common sense technical questions. Next, a series of written responses were requested via email. They basically ask the same type of general questions. This is mainly to test your written communication skills. The final round was held in the office. Group interview with the team managers. Again, all generic interview questions. No technical, all fit.
