    Quick interview, should be easy if you're well informed in accounting. I'm an economics major so I had some trouble. Asked usual questions you find on this site from other posts like walk me through the 3 financial statements, who is our CEO, why did you choose Wells Fargo, are you fine working out of state etc.

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied in-person and the process took 4+ weeks. Interview was very smooth, management wants to get to know you in every possible label, they want to see how committed and prepared you are, but they do it in a very easy going manner, very professional. This was before the online test's for aptitude, logical, verbal reasoning, etc, which i believe is something that everyone should pass before getting in at Wells Fargo. I did use an app 'the ultimate career interview' from app store to prepare for online tests. I suggest you to check out where you stand before applying for real.

    Interview Questions

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through their site. Heard back 5 days later via email to set up a phone interview. Passed that round, took 3 weeks, and have my next panel interview in a few days. The first phone interview was a screening mostly, asked half fit questions and half technical questions. It was super impersonal, she clearly had a list of questions and didn't care what my answers were as long as they seemed to fit in the realm of the template. The technical questions got progressively harder, the first 3 were all about the financial statements and the last 2 or 3 were specific to real estate and underwriting. Behavioral questions are standard, tell me about a time you found yourself with an unfavorable result, how did you over come it...Now I have a panel interview, over the phone, 2 back to back 45 min interviews and a writing assessment.

    Interview Questions
    • I wish I remembered exactly what the question was but it was very industry specific asking about a certain aspect of the underwriting process for a commercial building. Know how the 3 financial statements are connected.   Answer Question
