    Compliance Manager III Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7 months - interviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview Details

    Typical interview process - submitted online application. Hiring Manager called to complete an initial pre-screen of skill set and technical competency as well as describing the role. Proceeded to interview with hiring manager's manager and hiring manager's peer and also with HR to complete behavioral interview questions which typically is completed at the beginning.

    Interview Questions
    • Not difficult question, went through a pre-screen interview with hiring manager, interview with hiring manager's manager and hiring manager's peer. Had a total of 5 interviews (all phone) between the three. Final interview with the hiring manager ended with the hiring manager stating "I would like to proceed to the next stage to complete a offer package". This included with talking to HR asking a series of behavioral type question that should have been completed prior to the hiring manager contacting me so it appears they were back tracking and checking off the box of things to complete. HR requested that I submit a pay stub to prove my current salary as the position required HR to obtain. I had no objections and was told by HR paraphrased: { Let me get working on this, is there any questions you have for me or what else I can answer for you to make sure you are thrilled about this position and offer?}. Two weeks later I emailed HR to see if they needed any information from me since I was expecting a formal offer to which I was told that the hiring manager is also looking at other candidates. I thought it was odd but thought nothing of it and emailed the hiring manager to get an updated status. No response. It was not until I went through a back channel with my prior contacts at Wells (I had worked at WF previously, for 10 years) when I received a conference call invitation and with the HR and the hiring manager. The conference call was very well scripted with legal instructions on that Wells Fargo has decided to pursue other candidates and I'm no longer in consideration for the position. All in all, it was a weird interview process which does reinforce what I've known that WF is very large and different business units are more organized than others.   Answer Question

    Phone Banker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Westlake, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Westlake, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Wells Fargo in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Attended Job Fair. Interviewed by a recruiter at the job fair. The recruiter was very intimidating but I tried not to sweat or get nervous. I gave her all the correct answers. Mostly she asked about sales experience. I'd previously worked at a small loan company and we had minor sales goals to meet so I was able to give examples from my previous job. Was told to sit back down.

    Waited about 1/2 hour and had an interview with a supervisor. I was even more nervous because I expected to go over sales and numbers experience. Fortunately for me we only went through it briefly. The interviewer asked me general interview questions. I'd mentioned that I'd been referred by a previous employee and the interviewer happened to recognize that person. I think the interviewer felt that then I kind of new the job role a bit more. Right away we went over the day to day job duties. I felt comfortable afterwards but still a little unsure. That very same day I received a call from the recruiter for a job offer.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Got called into a group interview within a couple of days. 2 hours after the group interview I got a call from the recruiter and got my first branch interview. The branch called me 3 days later to set up the 1-1 interview. I did well on the first interview, but they ended up hiring internally. They called me exactly 1 week later saying I didn't get the position and I was referred back to the recruiter. I got my second branch interview, but the branch never called me back and neither did the recruiter. Mostly all interviews emphasized SALES.

    Interview Details

    Initial communications were stellar. I felt like our recruiting coordinator gave me the most welcoming experience. The interviewers were friendly, and the turnaround time for hearing a result was fast.

    I do not feel like the job expectations at the interview matched the job description on their website.
