- No OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Des Moines, IA) in May 2015.
One hiring manager face to face and lasted about 20 mins for a 30 min interview. There were 7 situational questions and asked about your level of education. Overall the interview was moderate to hard base on thinking on your feet to tricky questions. I was informed of job references being sent to former employers. After two weeks I was offered the job but declined due to pay. They declined my counter offer.
- Name a time where you have to give and take to accomplish a task. Answer Question
- No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Des Moines, IA) in April 2015.
The first interview is recruiter background checking. Skip the self-introduction part, start directly with the question sheet. Ask mostly about your experience on this position. Feel like they want to hire people who has experience on this position instead of recent graduate. The recruiter is very not professional. She is not ever clear about my major.
- Describe about the difficulties you met in office. Answer Question
- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Des Moines, IA) in April 2015.
Basically it was "describe a situation when..." after the initial phone interview, which was behavioral questions. Pretty basic, just be prepared and have your answers ready. It is pretty laid back as far as an internship goes.
- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Des Moines, IA) in November 2014.
Was a fairly long 1 on 1 meeting with the hiring manager. Talked through preset questions first, then got more specific to the job skills. After answering all the questions the interviewer gave feedback on their response to my answers and the things they liked and disliked. They then gave me advice for other interviews and assured me of a quick response on if I was chosen for the position or not.

- Declined OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Des Moines, IA) in October 2014.
They do an initial phone screening, really basic. Then they will call and request a face to face. If they like you, you will meet with their manager and most likely be given an offer on the spot.
Reasons for Declining
I declined because the offer was for $13 an hour with no bonus, which would be a 10k pay cut for me not including the bonuses I was previously making.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Des Moines, IA) in April 2014.
Behavioral questions based on core competences. Long and drawn out. Almost a month after phone interview had personal interview then didn't hear results until almost another month. Use STAR method and be as detailed as possible. Be sure to answer every question and explain your accomplishments.

I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Des Moines, IA).
I was scheduled an interview through a temp agency. I showed up to the interview 10 min early. About 6 different staffing agencies had areas set up for checking in. I checked in with my agency and waited in the waiting area with about 5 other people waiting to be interviewed. I was finally called back for my interview. It lasted about 15 min. I was asked very basic interview questions. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? What would your previous employer say about your work attendance? Describe a time when you made a mistake at work and what did you do to correct it? What is your definition of doing a good job? What makes you ambitious? What motivates you to be successful? Describe a difficult situation you were in and how did you handle it? What is something that you feel you accomplished in the last year? Tell me about your past leadership roles. You will also want to be ready to tell them about yourself and past work history and what skills you can bring to Wells Fargo. After the interview, I was given a short tour. The job looked easy. People were in casual clothes just looking at documents on their computer screens and typing in codes. Some people were even using their Ipods. This was a hiring event, so there were many people there for interviews. I would say I saw about 20 people there for interviews in the 30 min I was there. A lot of competition in the Des Moines, Iowa area. 13 bucks an hour for a chill job.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Des Moines, IA) in October 2012.
It is a pretty typical process. apply on the wells.careers website and either get a communication (you can choose call or email, i always went with email). Wells Does behavioral interviews so be prepared for goofy and irrelevant questions. I have interviewed all over this company and the behavior interview is always pretty simple, but the attitude varies department to department. Some were ice cold, and some were friendly to the point of having a "buddy-buddy" feel to them. Be and dress professional. i would think this goes without saying, but apparently not. One interviewer told me " you wouldn't believe the crazy stuff people say in these things" after i couldn't help but chuckle at a question like "in your opinion, how many tardies and unexcused absences per month are acceptable?" The hardest part, really, is getting the interview in the first place. This may be unique to the markets saturated with Wells Fargo jobs (Wells is one of the largest employers in my city), but a large number of successful job seekers have an internal reference within the department.
- Behavioral questions can be pretty odd. If you are applying for an entry level position and have never done a behavioral interview do some research on sample behavioral questions or you might end up feeling like an idiot. This is the question that baffled me, and i am no stranger to these things. This was for an entry level position: "Tell me about a time you lead a diversity initiative" Answer Question
This was an entry level position in a distressed job market so there was no negation to speak of.
