    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed 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 daysinterviewed 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
    Negotiation Details
    They didn't want to give me the same money I was making however I didn't want to move backwards so they did finally give in to what I needed

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Submit an online application. Branch manager contacted me by phone to schedule an interview. Interviewed in "panel" format with two branch managers. Interview asked basic questions (tell me about yourself, why Wells Fargo etc) and lasted just under an hour. They told me they would call next week. Got the call for another interview the next week with one branch manager from the previous interview and a current mortgage consultant. Interview took place over lunch and lasted over an hour. Tentative offer made following the lunch and I called to accept the next day.

    Home Mortgage Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed 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.

    Interview Questions
    • Would 55k-60k be enough income for you to consider accepting the job?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Base pay is the same for every HMC and there is no exception. It doesn't matter if you've been there 2 months or 20 years, you're base is 30k.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed 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.

    Negotiation Details
    There wasn't much opportunity for negotiations. They made an offer that was take it or leave it.
