    Teller Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Newport News, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newport News, VA
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Initially contacted by a Recruiter to come into a large business suite and do a group interview, each person tells a little about themselves and then each individually answers questions about various scenarios. The candidates must stand and say their name before answering each question. It's important to answer the questions in a way that is the "right" answer but still makes you stand out. Dress business professional, arrive at least 15 minutes early. Wells Fargo is sizing you up the minute they see you.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview then face to face. The phone interview was for half an hour where most questions were on use cases and my work done in past. Some were behavioral questions too which involved critical thinking. I would say know your resume very well as questions can come up.. Most of the questions were about how I helped stake holders understand the use cases. Go through situation based questions. Know the soft wares you used very well.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview Details

    The interview was extremely easy. There was a group interview of about 15 people. Just asked very simple questions about your work history. Tip: Just be yourself!!! Also please make sure that you dress the part, such as you need to wear a suit or suit skirt. You need to always look professional at all times when you have interview such as this one.

    Interview Questions
    • I would say the only thing that was unexpected was how we went about the group interview. The recruiter did not call out names for us to answer questions. The recruiter let us choose who should go first and so on. I just was calm and look a little longer than expected.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in September 2011.

    Phone Banker I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Shoreview, MN
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Wells Fargo in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter contacted me directly to apply and I did. The interview was great. They do group interviews for the phone banker positions now so it's gotten a lot better. All of the questions were about basic customer service and also sales. They want to know that you know how to up sale their products and if you've had experience in reaching goals and making sales. Be direct and specific about your experiences, If not, they will attack you over and over again to clarify yourself. Mention to them your experience in "role playing" and also your experience in assisting others to reach goals. Be ready and prepared, read the stuff they send out to you and know the basic knowledge of their company background.

    Interview Details

    Wells has a very stringent and grueling HR review for marketing positions. I've been through several interviews and none of them were very similar unfortunately. Once you make it past HR, the there are phone interviews, and then face to face interviews. My recommendation: get referred by someone and avoid all this.
