    Part Time Teller Interview

    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Wells Fargo (San Diego, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    One of the first steps I took was going online and creating an account on the careers page for Wells Fargo. I applied to multiple positions and I received an email with interview times to choose from. The interview I attended was a group interview with seven other candidates, including the recruiting officer. The recruiter asked us three questions and we had to answer them in STAR format (Situation, Action and Result). The recruiter then told us that they would call us if they want us, or they would send an email if they did not feel we are fit for the position. Fortunately, I received a phone call and a few more afterwards. Currently I am waiting to have an interview with a branch manager.
