Home Mortgage Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Tempe, AZ

Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in August 2014.

Interview Details

The process began with a phone screening by one o the supervisors and I was told I was the type or person they we're looking for, so I was invited for a in person interview. There were a lot of "tell me about a time you did this or that" I'm not sure my experiences were good enough or not. I was interviewed on friday and told a decision would be mad on Monday; Monday came and went and I wasn't invited for a second interview with the manager, so I assume that I wasn't chosen. Feeling defeated, yet again.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Wells Fargo in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Was invited to a one-on-one interview with one of the managers in the call center in Charlotte, NC. Basic list of 8-10 behavioral questions, and a number of questions about my previous experience. Very straightforward, and a relatively easy process (depending on the interviewer). Was offered the job the next day (pending a background check).

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Wells Fargo in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was much like any other corporate lender. Meetings with branch manager and sales manager were nothing but... "We are the biggest and best... You will get all the business you can handle...". They talked up their innovative, proprietary processing system that was supposed to be the quickest, most efficient system in the industry. After 2 years of nothing but delays, computer crashes and underwriting nightmares, they shut down our branch without notice.

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview Details

    They came to me and asked me to work for them. I never applied. Took about 2 months to get hired. They do a very indepth background check with the FBI and you have to get fingerprinted.

    Interview Questions
    • They kept trying to talk me out of the job saying I wasn't qualified for it with the intention to see my dedication to it. Otherwise it was pretty straight forward in regards to tell me about yourself, etc. I would recommend making a business plan if you're new to the industry.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Wells Fargo in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    The process was about asking questions about how I work and what if I was a hunter or a farmer. Knowing my stats from my previous position really helped in looking good in the interview. After speaking with the first person in the interview they asked if I would stay and speak to upper management for a 2nd look.

    Interview Questions
    • An unexpected question was when they ask how much about mortgage I knew? I stated that I have bought a home before and that it was pretty involved process and they agreed. I stated it was mounds of paperwork with probing for more information.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Wells Fargo in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    I did not apply for the position but instead was contacted by a recruiter. The interview itself was surprisingly brief and casual, 5 minutes or so. In the hiring managers defense, I had worked for Wells Fargo a few years prior and had a successful track record going into the interview. He had done his research and had a good idea what he was getting so it's not a fair measure of a typical interview in my opinion.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    Had 3 interviews. One with branch mgr and second with area manager. 3rd was on the phone with the state manager. Background check, addresses for the last 10 years. Nothing rough or difficult as far as paperwork and the interviews themselves. I showed up to the interview with my resume on a thumb drive, just in case the branch mgr hadn't forwarded it to the area manager, which he didn't... gave it to the area manager, but her workstation locked out USB connections, had to overcome that shortfall.
