I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in October 2010.

Interview Details – Initially applied online and got a phone interview which was mostly about gauging my interest in the position. Few days later was invited for a group interview which was of more pressure due to the fact that there were numerous people going for the same position. Then invited to interview with two managing directors separately 1:1. The interviews were mostly behavioral with the exception of a few technical questions asked by the managing directors.

Interview Details – Got an interview through a staffing agency.
First was a phone interview, where the interviewer asked bunch of BA task related question and I was able to explain all my experiences in last project. It lasted for 30 minutes. got the results by the evening through agency. Second interview was in person in the Minneapolis office on the following week. It went on for 45 minutes. Primarily role playing was done.
Apparently the interviewer didn't liked me elaborating that I do not like to be unproductive and would always want to give my 100% + towards the job. Came to know about this within 2 days of interview.
They respond pretty fast that was a +.

Interview Details – The interview went very well. The interviewer was polite and gave me a good explanation regarding what business they were into and what was expectations from the position.

Saint Louis, MO

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Wells Fargo in February 2011.

Interview Details – After applying through the Wells website and my university career center, I was contacted through my university career center about having a 1:1 interview on campus. There was a university alum in the waiting room to answer any questions about her time at Wells or the analyst program - she was incredibly friendly and informative. The interview was a straight forward behavioral interview questions. The interviewers have a list of questions and a form they have to fill out, so the interviewer took notes. The interviewer was enthusiastic and was an alum of the analyst program and was able to answer all my questions. She seemed genuinely interested in answering my questions and listening to my responses.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Wells Fargo in January 2011.

Interview Details – how do you handle stress, tell me about a situation where there was conflict and how did you handle it, how would you go about learning the job, how familiar are you with tool and methods used in the job. The interviewer was personable and professional and communicated how the hour was to be spent (description of job, interview, then time for questions from me). I perceived the interviewer (hiring mgr) to be very supportive of new employees' learning curves and easy to get along with. I perceive that the group culture is also supportive based on a quick looksee of the office.
