    Teller Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Lauderdale, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Lauderdale, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Wells Fargo in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online at the career website. About 3 days later, I received a group interview invite for the following Thursday (Yesterday) @ 10 a.m.. Walked into the branch, their was about 15 other candidates sitting in the lobby. I took the last available seat as 2 others walked in. From the time that I walked in, we waited about 10 minutes before being directed to a back (conference like) room. Signed in. Their was a panel of 4 people. They were Branch managers and a recruiter. Each candidate did an introduction that consisted of your name and current or previous job title relevant to the position they applied for (Teller). We were then told a little about the company. The motto, possible career paths, store hours, compensation, etc. we were then told that we would have to answer a series of questions. We were allowed time to write them down and then answer when we were ready! We then responded to these questions, which turned out to be short stories, took about 1 1/2 hours for 15 ppl to answer 3 questions each... UGH!!!! Such a drag. The panel sat quietly and took notes. After we completed the questions we were asked about location preference, availability and restrictions. We were asked did we have any questions. No one had any. We were told that we should expect to be contacted within a Max. 2 week period, whether we were chosen or not. We were then dismissed. As everyone stood up to leave, the branch manager asked for 3 of us to remain, so that "he could get more availability info". As we stayed behind he asked were we available to immediately meet with the district manager at the corporate location. We were informed that if we did good at the next interview, that we would be offered the position. We headed to lunch for an hour, then headed over to the corporate location. Spoke with DM. GOT THE POSITION!!!

    My advice would be practice and preparation. Great eye contact, not only to the panel, but to everyone in the room. Project your voice. I have full blown anxiety. So I practiced in the mirror for a week. I drove my family crazy with practice questions. I'm typically intimidated by authority figures. Like I'd go mute sometimes. I remained calm and worked it out.

    Dress like your graduating from Harvard Law! Ladies, pant or skirt suit, dark colors, nothing that'll be a distraction. I wanted to wear an ascot. Changed my mine. Gentlemen, SUIT!!!! Tie!!!

    Securities Summer Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview Details

    Resume drop online, First round on campus interview and hosted a pre-interview reception.

    Interviewers were nice and genuinely interested in past internship and work experiences. Culture seems different from other big banks/typical corporate. Mainly got questions, given I was a non traditional candidate (not finance). Was told that I was well liked but not offered a position since I did not have enough technical knowledge/coursework, was encouraged to keep in contact and reapply for a full time once I take a few more classes!

    I applied online – interviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview Details

    the first interview was a group interview with 10 people. They asked about situational questions based on your past. It was pretty tough because you had to essentially one up the person next to you. Also, I got the vibe that certain people were already given jobs but just needed to go through the interview to fulfill their quota and to say they actually hire people from these group interviews.

    Phone Banker I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Antonio, TX
    Anonymous Employee in San Antonio, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Wells Fargo in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied through Indeed.com and quickly got a call back setting up a phone interview the same day. Did the basic phone interview which consisted of just basic questions about my info and then a couple of preliminary behavioral questions, "Name a time when" type. Just like two of these. Passed that and was set up for a Face to Face interview the same week a couple of days later.
    Went to their location and interviewed with another person that wasn't the one I had been talking to. It was a face to face basic STAR type interview with usual questions about sales.
    I knew this was a phone bank job, but as I had seen and read on forums it is heavy on Sales type questions, the "name a time when you had" that again.

    Process took a few days but they got back to me.
