Teller Interview

Teller
Washington, DC

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Wells Fargo in June 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online and was able to choose my own interview date and time. Group interview in Washington, D.C. with the hiring manager and 11 other interviewees. We only had to answer really easy questions in our screening test. 1) Who were your last three employers 2) Why do you want to be a teller 3) Where do you see yourself in five years Afterwards we watched a quick 10 minute video about the position of a teller inside of the company, and lastly she asked if we had any questions. Hiring manager was very nice and helpful as she gave us helpful tips with how to prepare for future interviews. She let us know that we will be contacted in 3 weeks with a decision on whether or not to proceed to the second interview.

I felt as though I did not perform my best during the interview since I was really nervous, however I sent a thank you email to the hiring manager the next day and in two hours she called me back saying that she has a branch that I can interview with the store manager at and will be contacting me back in the upcoming week for second interview. I am confident that I will do well given her advice on what to bring, study for, and how to dress.

Personal Banker II – Registered Interview

Personal Banker II – Registered

I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in December 2011.

Interview Details – They have a online screening then a group interview and then a branch by branch interview. You can get lost among the candidates if you don't persistently follow up. I was told by a branch that I was hired but then never heard from HR for a month. I went into another lower position interview and asked what went on and they said the manager was promoted and I got lost in the shuffle. I then got a list of managers with open spots in the area and went door to door to the managers. After I talked directly to several managers I got several offers.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you felt you had overcome adversity.   Answer Question
