Interview

I went on one interview in transition from wachovia to wells fargo. The interview was a joke and I was called and offered the job on my way home which 25 minutes away at the time. I believe I had interviewed with the district manager as well as a branch manager of some sort.

Interview Questions

  • Asked me if I was low on my lending goal for the month and only had a week to go what would I do.   Answer Question

Negotiation

If the recruiter tells you this is the offer and I can't negotiate it. Tell her to call the person who can negotiate it tell them what I said then call me back and tell me what they said. Repeat as necessary.

    Interview

    The interviewer will make you watch this long outdated VHS tape. You have no choice but sit down there and watch it. It's usually a group interview. One question after the other which every member of the group must answer. When you go interview for other positions, it's usually the same VHS tape to watch. They call you for interview but never hire you for the position. One HR staff doing the interview told the truth about the company that people do not stay long enough with the company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Salem, OR) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Emailed reply to ad, they emailed response, I emailed back, they called, did phone interview, went in for 1:1 interview, then brief phone interview 2 days later. Was just background check and email forms & paperwork after that.

    Interview was easy. They did actually read my resume first, which some employers don't do. They were looking to hire me when I walked in. I don't know if they do that with everyone, or if I just resume'd/phone interviewed well. I've been to other interviews where they're trying to weed people out, rather than get people in, and those weren't nearly as much fun.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    As it was presented to me, "This position pays $xx.xx/hr." No real room to negotiate. Don't know if a better negotiator could have done better than I there, or if that's just how it goes.

    Interview

    First you have to apply online, if you pass the test they will give you a 1-800 number to call, then you will be asked some questions about sales and customer service experience, if you pass that they will send you to a group interview. I am at that point right now...

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Wells Fargo (San Diego, CA) in November 2009.

    Interview

    1- phone interview consisting of general questions and was given a date for group interview. Took about 10 minutes.
    2- group interview date was a month and a half later. There were 12 candidates total, one main recruiter speaking and asking the questions, and about 5 managers from different branches taking notes and listening. Group interview took about an hour and a half.
    3- received phone call on the same day by the recruiter telling me I made it to the next step of the interview process and was given contact information to the branch that I wanted to work at for a 1 on 1 with the branch managers.
    4- 1 on 1 interview date was one week later and I was told that I would hear from them within a week. Pretty basic questions, I felt very comfortable.
    5- I ended up calling them to follow up a week later and was offered the position if I passed the mandatory background check. I was told it would take a week but it ended up taking 2 weeks.
    6- received a phone call from the recruiter telling me my background check finally cleared and we set up a date for me to come in to fill out all the paperwork.

    The only negative part of the process was how long it took. Almost 3 months from the phone interview until I was offered the position. Other than that, everyone was very nice and the recruiter was very helpful. She even told me that if the manager at the branch I chose didn't offer me the position to let her know so that she could set me up at another branch.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Wells Fargo (San Francisco, CA) in May 2008.

    Interview

    Meeting Face to Face, nothing to spectacular. Basically each branch is controlled by the manager so you are selling yourself to one person, that is it. No need to worry about second interviews the first is pretty much the one that counts. Overall a great place to work and a lot can be learned.

    Interview

    I saw a job posting for a banker online. I contacted Wells Fargo for an interview and they told me the time and place to be for the group interview. The interview was conducted in a very professional manner, but I was surprised that 6 others were also present for the interview, instead of 1 on 1. I thought the questions were fair. One complaint I had was there was no follow-up from Wells Fargo stating whether I was hired or not.
