    Personal Banker I (SAFE) Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, took a test and received an email for a group interview the same day. I chose a time slot that was 5 days away so that I could have some time to prepare. I was pretty nervous about it since I had never done a group interview before and wasn't sure how to stand out in the crowd. Lucky for me, I was the only person scheduled for the interview that day. So the group interview actually because an one-on-one session.

    The interview asked me a few standard questions starting with "Please introduce yourself and why you want to work for Wells Fargo", he then asked if I had encountered any difficult situations with a customers and how I resolved the problem. The third question was what was my biggest achievement professionally. I had prepared answers for all these questions, so I did pretty well. The interviewer then explained that he really liked me and implied that he would move my profile along. He informed me that the response could be longer than 5 days (max wait time for second interview.....if any) cause of the holidays. He gave me his business card and asked me to give me a call if I didn't hear back from them with 2 weeks. We then chatted for a couple minutes about holiday plans and stuff as a wrap-up. The whole interview lasted about 40 minutes.

    I got a call from a branch manager the next day asking me to go in for the second interview. I'm very excited......haven't done the interview yet. I'll update this review with more information on it when I'm done with it next Monday.

    Wish me luck, guys!

    Retail Banking Positions Interview

    Interview Details

    Lots of questions that don't really judge if the applicant is adequate for the job. More of the questions are geared towards whether you can take orders without question. I would strongly suggest polishing up on how to use customers names and smiling. Its a very important process for the customer facing operational part of the retail banking side of the bank. The acronym used is S.H.I.N.E. : meaning - Smile, say Hello, show Interest, address Needs, and sell and Enhance the experience of the customer .

    Interview Questions
    • They are most usually concerned about leaving your schedule open for the company to take advantage of. Many of the Tellers get a "Flex Schedule" meaning no guaranteed hours per week and a lot of fluctuation.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview Details

    The first step in the hiring process in a phone interview where you have to call into a phone line and wait for one of the bank managers to answer the phone. If you do well during this stage you are invited to a round robin style interview with 6 managers of the bank who overlook several different interns in different rotations. Each manager has a different set of scripted questions that they tend to ask a few from. Some of the managers just want to get to know you as an individual and do not ask the scripted questions.

    The first interview was a group interview. The recruiter asked each of us (there were 10 people in total) to first introduce ourselves and discuss why we want to work for Wells Fargo. She asked four more questions after that like, "Describe a time when you went above and beyond for a customer." The next interview was with the managers at the location that I wanted to work at.
