    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    After filling out an application three or four days later I got a email asking me to pick a time available for an interview so after I pick the time they gave me all the information I needed the day of the interview. The day of the interview it was a group interview, about eight of us and we took turns answering the questions. They say you're going to be there for four hours but I think the interview was Lestin two hours. A couple of days later they will send you an email letting you know if you got the decision tonight and if not you would have to apply again in six weeks. Oh and I forgot about parking, if you are not familiar with Atlantic Station same parking will be quite confusing for you so make sure wherever Business you park by downstairs that you remember because if you don't you will be lost and please keep your ticket with you!!

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Wells Fargo (Atlanta, GA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Online application then received an email to do an online screening, after completing that I immediately received an email inviting me to choose an interview date/time. Did group interview with about 11 other candidates. It lasted for exactly 2 hours n was then told that we would receive an email about the next step. Seven days after my interview I got an email from them saying they've decided to go with other candidates at the time and shockingly 5 days later I received a call from the recruiter saying he found another opportunity for me an set me up with an interview at the store where I was interviewed by the store manager and another person. Interview went okay, the team seemed very friendly. I was told that they have to send results back to the recruiter and he would be contacting me with whatever decision they made. So I'm currently waiting on that call or email.....HOPEFULLY I get it because I need it. Good luck to everyone that's going on interviews.

    Interview Questions

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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

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

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Wells Fargo (Atlanta, GA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    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.
