Customer Service and Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo.

Interview Details – It was a pretty basic interview. I first did an over the phone interview screening process. I was then invited to be interviewed by the store management, two women. It was pleasant enough. No crazy questions or anything. All of it was fairly standard. Basic questions and standard discussion. I did wait for the interview to start for more then 15 minutes, unfortunately.

Interview Question – I don't think anything was really difficult. The typical "Where do you see yourself in 10 years" kinds of questions and discussions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was not able to negotiate. I did work with a recruiter person who helped explain the benefits when I asked questions.

3842634 Ds Cnsmr Ln Underwtr (Rbc) II Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Wells Fargo in April 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online and was contacted soon after to schedule a telephone interview. I did not get very far. The interviewer raved about my resume and said that they (Well Fargo) had a difficult time finding applicants with my dealership experience. However, early in the interview process he asked me what base salary I was looking for. I told him $60,000 annually. He told me that the high end of what he was able to offer is $50,000. He also said that the underwriter position was an hourly wage and that with overtime and bonuses I would probably end up making about $60,000 annually. I told him that I was flexible but that I would not accept anything less than a base salary of $55,000 annually. He said that he would contact the branch manager to see if there was any room for him to offer me more than $50,000 and call me the following day. I can only assume that there was no room because he never called me back.

Interview Question – I researched and was prepared for an array of possible questions but we never made it past salary.   View Answer
