After that I scheduled an over the phone interview with someone from the bank a week later. The interview itself was about thirty minutes, mainly behavioral questions because it was the first round. There was also time afterwards to ask questions if there were any.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview Details

    Initial on-campus interview, then a writing assignment, and an on site interview to follow. Took over 5 weeks to respond and the recruiter was very unresponsive over email. The interviews contained a few technical questions- all of which were based on accounting concepts. Mostly the interview is behavioral and they read questions off a script.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed for both the Commercial Banking and Commercial Real Estate FA positions. Signed up through my school and interviewed on campus. Interviewed with 2 people for each position. The commercial real estate interview was a bit cold and definitely did not feel like a conversation. Wells Fargo's interview process is very structured in that the interviewers must ask a specific set of questions given to them. Commercial banking interview was extremely positive and the guys were very informative and passionate about their work and the Wells Fargo name.

    After the interview, they informed me 2 weeks later than I was not selected.

    Interview Questions
    • Interview questions are a mix of behavioral and technical. Behavioral questions are pretty straight forward (tell me about a time..) and they expect you to answer with the STAR method. Technical questions would be pretty easy for anyone with an accounting or finance background but could take some off guard if you're not well prepared.

      Relationship between financial statements, other basic accounting questions..

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview Details

    Applied on college career website, process took around a month. Pre interview reception in SF, followed by first round interview (30 min) on campus. Found out roughly a week later I had a "super day" which consisted of two onsite interviews 30 minutes each. From there, found out again a week later that I had a third round with senior management. Questions were very straight forward if you are a business/econ major...some accounting based (walk me through the income statement), some econ based (what happens to disney's revenues if oil prices rise). First and second round were combinations of technical (easy) and behavioral questions. Know your basic accounting. Third round was purely fit based.

    Commercial banking was not exactly what I wanted to do, and I received other offers. I have heard it is a wonderful place to work, however.
