Loan Servicing Specialist II Interview

Loan Servicing Specialist II
West Des Moines, IA

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in June 2013.

Interview Details – Got in person interview through a recruiting company. Easy to find where to go, and was met by friendly staff. Had a pleasant, light-hearted interview that focused on career aspirations and goals for the future, personally, and for a company to work with. Hiring process went fine. It was sped up because they really wanted to fill a hole. Once I got on the job I realized the hole was there because the job was a soul-sucking experience. Had to get out as soon as I was able.

Interview Question – What was a situation in which you felt that you were unable to handle a task, and what were the steps you took in reaction to that.   Answer Question

Quality Assurance Analyst II Interview

Quality Assurance Analyst II
Addison, TX

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in October 2013.

Interview Details – The hiring process moves very quickly at Wells Fargo. In fact I had an offer the morning following my interview. I had a phone screening and a panel type interview with all the managers within my department since all of them were in need for someone to fill a vacancy on their teams.

Interview Question – Questions were not difficult. Just the usual "When have you ever disagreed with your management" or "What is your biggest fear." I hate those questions, but seems to be the theme for interviews these days. Bottom line is that they are very picky and by the book when it comes to hiring. So, if you have made it to the in person interview phase, your chances are pretty good. I would just be honest and highlight your skills and speak to your problem solving abilities.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – For the position I accepted, there was no negotiation, which was made clear several times. I rolled the dice and tried but was not successful. Figured it would work since I exceeded the minimum requirements the job demanded, but no luck. I took a pay cut to boost my resume. Stayed there for six months and left.

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Wells Fargo in April 2013.

Interview Details – It took a while. The manager didn't seem to know what she was doing, she was not prepared. I was asked to be there at a time and had to wait about an hour before the interview started. I was asked a set of questions from a generic paper printed from the company website.

I applied online and interviewed at Wells Fargo.

Interview Details – I applied online and a few days later received an email saying to schedule my group interview. At the group interview there were about 10 others including myself.
