    Teller Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boulder, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Boulder, CO) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I went in for a group interview and there was 9 other people that were applying for the same position some for the same city we interviewed at and some for different cities. When we first started the lady told us "to be relaxed, because if everyone in the room is a good fit than everyone in this room will get a position with the company". Which I felt was false information, and she only said that so she could see how we'd react to the statement she just made. She asked everyone two questions, and based off of the answers you respond with, that would determine if you go into the next round or not. Which is stupid because how can you get to know someone off of two questions, especially when everyone is looking at you in the entire room. Maybe I'm just old fashion but I believe interviews should always be one on one, I understand they do group interviews to make the process easier and faster, but this interview was one of the worst interviews I've ever had in my life. Believe me, I've been to countless interviews in my life time and this was just the worst ever.

    Teller Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Wells Fargo (San Francisco, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I went to their job fair and from there they told me to do the online application (which I had already done) and in about three days I got an email to schedule a group interview for the following week. There were a few introduction questions and then we proceeded with three questions. They said we would either get a phone call if they want us to proceed with the interview process or an email if we got rejected.

    Interview Questions

    • First, they asked us to introduce ourselves with the introduction questions they had for us such as;
      -describe your past working experiences
      -How did you hear about the job
      -Why did you choose Wells Fargo
      -Why were you interested in the Teller position

      The three questions were:
      -What is a goal you set for yourself, and what was challenging about that.
      - Describe a time that was challenging during your last job. What did you learn from that about yourself and how did you deal with it.
      -Describe on of your biggest accomplishments, what was challenging about that and what did you learn about yourself.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview

    First it was a group interview. And then you would do individual interviews with the branches. Questions were pretty easy asked to give examples. I just used past experiences and be upfront if you have scheduling conflicts. They were pretty flexible since I was going to school

    Teller Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Irvine, CA).

    Interview

    Group interview. Multiple Candidates and multiple interviewers. Questions are very general and simple. I nailed the job by agreeing with another candidate's answer and building rapport off that. They liked the fact that I didn't look at other candidates as competitors, but as colleagues. If you have a decent professional understanding of corporate work culture, you should have no problem with the interview.

    Part Time Teller Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview

    Once you finish your application online they send you an email for you to take an assessment. After 24 hours you get sent an email for you to schedule your interview. The interview is roughly 2 hours long and it is a group interview. When I went there were only three other people (4 people total) but our interviewer told us usually there are 10-15 people in a group interview. We went through slides and after the few slides we had three interview questions. After the the questions, the interviewer went over the dress code, what is expected of you, and the benefits. After this interview, if you are lucky you get invited to a one on one interview with a manager from a bank that is hiring. If you are hired, you have to go through a background check and once that is over you have to go through a week of training (8 am to 8 pm I believe).

    Teller Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greensboro, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Greensboro, NC).

    Interview

    Once you submit the application online for teller positions you automatically have to complete the assessment questions. It was very easy & short, but still don't rush through it. If you pass the assessment then you get to schedule when you would like to do the interview. BEWARE that is most likely will be group interview with about eight people, if not more but the recruiter who did my interview was very welcoming and made it out to be an relaxed environment, so nothing to hard but it can be difficult if your not use to doing group interviews with others around you. The recruiter will be presenting a power point that goes over several slides about the company, details about the teller position and pay, and then towards the end of the slides she will begin displaying the interview questions on the screen. (She gives you about a minute to read each question-only 3 to 4 questions total) Then she gives whoever the opportunity to answer the questions first. ALWAYS TRY TO GO FIRST OR SECOND, never last.
