I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in October 2012.

Interview Details – Group interview. Be sure to shine to get a call back.

Interview Question – All where pretty standard and predictable.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Wanted to hire me part time at 10.00hr. I declined. They called back and offered full time at 11.00hr. Not the best, but better then the 1st offer so I reluctantly accepted.

Teller Interview

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in November 2013.

Interview Details – Wells Fargo has a relatively easy interview process as far as getting an interview. You simply fill out an application and if you pass the assessment you can set up a time and day for your interview. The first interview is usually a group interview at a central location. I interviewed on two seperate occasions because the first time I couldn't work in the training hours. However, now on my second attempt in the interview process I went to my group interview which had only 3 other candidates. Supposedly there was supposed to be more but we were the only ones that showed. After some introductions we watched a video and answer behavioral questions. Everyone gets a chance to answer, but in my case on both occasions no one wanted to answer first so it made me look really strong when I went first with my answers. That is definitely something they will remember. Another thing that will help you is if you rehearse your answers. The questions are all the same, but having an answer that is well thought out and prepared shows that you have done your homework and are more than qualified to do this job. It is also another thing that recruiters notice and could help you get that second interview. After the group interview the recruiter told us that she would contact us in about two weeks to inform us either way about the job. I received a call an hour later and was told that I did exceptionally well and would be moving on. I then set up an appointment with the store manager at the bank I applied for. However, when I went in for the interview the manager I was supposed to interview with had a death in the family so I ended up being interview by a different manager. I handled business as usual and had a good interview. She told me to expect a call in a week because that was the time the original manager would be back. A week later I got the call asking me to come in again and she made me an offer.

Interview Question – The thing that took me by surprise and stopped me from working for the company previously is the 80 hours of training that you have to do Monday thru Friday from 8 to 5. This is MANDATORY. I implore you to think and understand this before you try to interview with this job. As a college student I certainly couldn't do it when the semester started and was very disappointed when I learned I would need to put aside so much time to train.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. She offered me a set amount and I accepted.

Very Difficult Interview

Teller Interview

Teller
Atlanta, GA

I applied online - interviewed at Wells Fargo in September 2013.

Interview Details – I Applied on a Saturday had a group interview consisting of 12 people including myself. It was very impersonal more like a rat race! Spent two hours in an interview that I knew I wasn't going to get a call back from and the recruiter only asked two questions!!!! Question 1 tell us about yourself and why Wells Fargo? Question Two name a time where you had to make a quota and what was the outcome? Also it's like a 3 step hiring process if hired you have to go to training for four weeks for there days a week from 8-5 & you have to pay for your own FBI background check using fingerprints. They also only hire part time. I suggest that you don't do the group interview because there are as many as 5 areas hiring and they interview at least 144 people in an interview and while interviewing your group they could have already hired for those 5 positions. It was a great experience but they really make their hiring process a rat race. Also if you get an interview make sure you sell yourself and sell Wells Fargo they want you to Love their company regardless of experience and they like in house referrals.

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Wells Fargo in June 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online week prior to interview. Interview consisted of myself and about 7 others and was very laid back and general. The hiring manager basically explained the position to us, WF benefits, her background, asked a few informational EXTREMELY easy to answer questions. Lasted about an hour and didn't even realize it. We were told to wait to hear from them for a second interview, within the next week. As soon as I got in the car to leave the interview, I got that call. The interview was scheduled the day after the initial one over the phone at 9. Pretty simple, it was the branch manager and hiring manger on the line and then again, I was told to wait a week to see if I was offered the position. Not even a full 30 minutes later, I received the call and was offered a position. So this all happened in less than 2 days!

Interview Question – N/A   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The starting pay for the location I was hired at, is $10.75. I didn't see the need in negotiating.
