I applied online and interviewed at Wells Fargo.
Interview Details – The HR representative was a great guy, very encouraging and engaging. However, the interview process was painful. The managers were poor listeners in both interviews that lasted more than 3 hours, answering and asking questions inappropriately. The opening speech that lasted more than 30 uninterrupted minutes was all about how important the managers were. The "personality question" portion was standard: "Tell me about a time you went above and beyond what was required" stuff.
Interview Question –
One of the managers asked this to me and a colleague who also interviewed:
"Are you sure the title *fill in job title two jobs back* is really supported by the things you have listed here?" Answer Question
Reason for Declining – They aren't paying very well.
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in June 2012.
Interview Details – It was smooth first they call you for an interview then asked you some questions about yourself and past experiences good ans bad about your clients.
Very Difficult Interview
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Wells Fargo in May 2011.
Interview Details – The job was an internal posting but I was required to complete an online application and submit my resume. I submitted a functional resume for this job. Human Resources always does a pre-screening and then will recommend you to the hiring manager if you meet their criteria. At the end of every HR screening I ask what the next steps are, how long it will take for me to hear from someone and if they thought I was a good fit for the job. I always ask if they will recommend me to the hiring manager. In this case, they said yes. It took a couple of weeks to hear back from the hiring manager to set up an interview at another location. I went to the interview and a peer of the hiring manager showed up a few minutes after the interview started. The manager introduced him and said that he was there to observe and maybe ask a few questions. He had a copy of my resume with several items highlighted. She would ask a question, I would begin to answer and then he would interrupt me with something totally unrelated, such as "I see on your resume that you say you are analytical, what does that word 'analytical' mean to you?" He did this several times. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to be answering his questions or hers. I looked to her for help but she kind of just shrugged her shoulders. It left me wondering if this was their tactic, was it planned, were they trying to get a rise out of me or what? The man was very rude the entire time. I kept my cool and answered all of their questions. I walked out of there very angry and I definitely didn't want the job. It seemed like the hiring manager wasn't a good leader and since I'd also have to have interaction with the other man, I definitely couldn't see myself working with someone so rude.

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Wells Fargo in March 2009.
Interview Details – The interview process was skills and customer centric (external and internal customer) specific. The interviewers were friendly yet professional and asked no questions out of the context of the scope of the job position. Their questioning was presented in a direct and specific approach, but was not threatening and they allows ample response time.
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation, because the package that was offered was more than I had expected to receive.

Interview Details – The interview was actually quite direct and easy. They saw my prior experience and how it fit in with what they needed. Plus, they needed someone right away, and I was available. I had to go through an agency this time, though I had worked directly with them before when they did not require the use of an agency.
