    I interviewed in-person. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed 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.

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed 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

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview Details

    Contacted via campus recruiting website. Questions all set based off a packet, mainly behavioral but definitely review accounting concepts beforehand. Nothing too specific, just general concepts. Explained the position afterwards very well with me.

    Application Details

    interviewed at Wells Fargo in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online via the company job search agent. I was contacted by email about a month later to schedule an initial 30 minute phone interview with the human resources representative. A few days later, I had my phone interview and it was pretty standard. She asked me to point out anything important on my resume and then followed up with several standard behavior questions.

    Interview Questions
    • The interviewer asked me to explain the three financial statements I would use to evaluate a business before approving them for a loan, and how the statements relate to each other. I had not taken accounting for several years and was unprepared to adequately answer the question.   Answer Question

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Wells Fargo in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied via on-campus recruiting in late September. Applied for Commercial Real Estate lending. First interview was 30 minutes. Questions were mostly behavioral, but some were technical. Interned at the another bank before so the technical questions were simple for me. Didn't get a call-back about the second round until 6+ weeks later. Second interview was at Irvine for a position in SF. Second interview was divided into 2 sessions of 30-minutes each. Interviewers were all SVP for the department that I was applying for. Questions were half behavioral and half technical. Stumped on some technical questions. Interviewers would prompt you further if you were stuck though. Emphasized that Wells Fargo was my first choice. Interviewers from both first round and second round had lists of prepared questions.
