    Personal Banker I Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Group Interview with 3-4 managers present. Very easy and straight forward. Seemed to be a lot of low-level retail employees in the group. Use the STAR format. Have a "point" in what you say. Actually answer the question and don't dance around it. Those who didn't have answers didn't get hired. They seemed to also prefer those with strong sales backgrounds.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Wells Fargo in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    They will ask you about your customer service experience. Previous banking experience is not needed. This is a sales position. If you have common sense, sales experience, and are professional - its an easy job to obtain. However, once you get the job be ready for a reality check because it not what HR explains it to be in reality, especially if your branch manager is weak. Make sure to ask for a strong manager and meet them prior to accepting to be placed at that branch.
