I applied online. The process took 7 weeks – interviewed at Wells Fargo.
So you apply to all the job postings that you want online wellsfargo.com/careers. You have to make an account and apply for each job post individually. Then you get an email to do a screening. It's a bunch of random aptitude questions. Then you'll get a choice as to when you would like to attend a group interview. This is for your entire metropolitan area. You interview with a recruiting officer. The group interview is about 2 hours long. You have to apply for all the job postings you want online again. Then you'll get an email telling you you can come for another interview-it is either one on one or another group interview. Or you'll get one saying they chose to go a different direction. If you get the former you'll go to a group interview-at least in my case- with a hiring panel. It has the district manager, and the managers at all the stores that have openings in the area. They'll ask you questions. Then at that point they write what they like about you and send it to recruitment who then makes the final decisions. Then the recruiting officer will either call you or email you telling you if you got the job. But careful, then you have to do an online application, set up a date for a fingerprint analysis, then the background check officialpy starts which could take a while. The. After that clears it's another week or two until you go into 2 weeks of mandatory 8-5 training. All in all the hiring process is about 6-8 weeks. It's long for an entry level job.
Tips- you don't have to be the first one to answer all of the questions but try to be the third or forth, because sometimes they'll skip to the next question for the sake of time
Smile: look the interviewer straight in the eye and smile and make eye contact even when they're talking to the whole group.
Dress: Dress better then you think you should. Wear a suit. For girls a blazer and work pants is perfect. They should be wrinkle free and ironed. Stick with neutral colors and minimal makeup. Girls don't ever wear bold lipstick to an interview it's just not appropriate. And no chipped nail polish. Guys- if you wear a suit don't wear a black tie- it's only appropriate for funerals and weddings. Make sure your socks don't show and your tie should match your shirt.
Sales- what they're looking for the most is cash experience and sales experience. And people who can learn quickly and easily. Extra friendly is the key word here. They also have customer satisfaction surveys so if you're not great with customers it might not be the right fit.

Sometimes with tellers you'll have to mark both part time and full time because they have more part time positions available- but it could lead to full time. Just be prepared that it could be part time they're offering you. I got
A part time of 24 hours a week.

I applied online – interviewed at Wells Fargo.
Apllied online which led to a very straight forward phone interview. Softball questions just designed to get you to talk about your background. They then set me up for a group interview. I thought this was a bit nerve wracking since they asked questions and went around the room with everyone answering the question one by one.

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Wells Fargo.
Applied in mid-May, received an email from a recruiter in the home office two days later. First step was a telephone interview with a recruiter, which consisted of several behavioral questions. Know how to answer these cold using the S.T.A.R. method. Next was an in-person interview at the end of May in the local office with the senior financial advisor you'd be working with, the branch manager, and his assistant all at once. This lasted about an hour, again a barrage of behavioral questions but a little more tailored to the role itself. If you have prior financial services experience working with clients, this part of the process is where you can kill it - S.T.A.R. method here too. Less than a week later, the senior financial advisor requested both professional and personal references, all of which he called. Finally in mid-June I was offered the position.
Save the negotiations for the splits on production with the team you are placed with.

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Wells Fargo (New York, NY).
As you would expect, be prepared to handle a constant barrage of typical questions, but be sure to give innovative responses. They definitely only hire people who can think on the spot and be efficient with their time. Theres also at least 2 rounds, so be prepared for both if you want a chance.

Multiple screening and phone interviews leading up to panel interview.
