They told me they would call me back if they'd like to schedule a second round face-to-face interview. They called be a couple hours later to set up the second interview. I had the second interview on the following monday. Interview was an hour long and there were a lot of questions. They told me they would call me the following week to let me know whether they had interest or not in placing me in the position. I got a call on the following Thursday letting me know they were interested in giving me the position. All in all, quick, painless process!

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Wells Fargo in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was fairly easy. There was only HR lady interviewing and about six candidates other than myself. We watch the Wells Fargo video, she asked us about 5 questions each (going around the room) and then she just gave us a slight break down of what being a teller is like.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Addison, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. 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 Questions
    • 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 interviewed online - 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. The recruiter first explained the position and what makes a good teller. She also told us what questions she was going to ask us so we could write down our answers to make us less nervous. The questions were based mainly on customer service.
