Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Minneapolis, MN).

Interview

After applying online it took about 2 weeks for a recruiter to set an interview. After completing the interview you then will have to pass a drug test and a background check. That took about a another week, then came the person interview with the Store Manager of your location. In the interview they will ask usual questions such as Tell me about yourself, why work for wells, and why I should hire you.
They will ask a lot of different types of scenarios and how you would handle that situation.
Once they have decided to make a hiring decision they will ask for you to come back for a second interview and make an offer to you. Once you have accepted the offer you'll go straight into the training process which will take another 2 weeks before being on your own and in front of real customers!

Tip: Make sure you do your homework the day before!!!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview

    Three Phase interview process. Phone interview, Panel interview, Branch interview. After the phone interview. I was scheduled for a 2nd interview. There were about 2 people for HR conducting the interview. Also 4 or 5 branch managers who were sitting on the sideline basically requiting. There were about 20 applicants, all in the same room. We each went around the table and introduced ourselves, and gave past job experience. We each role played. The questions weren't to bad because you got to listen the other people respond prior to giving your answer. Gave you time to think. that was it. About a week later I received a call from one of the branch managers to go in for another interview at his branch. This time it was only me in an office with about 4 other Managers. After the interview. I never received a call from that Branch. About a week Later I was called from another Branch. The same interview process. The next day I called the Branch to follow up on my interview and was told They had not made a decision. About 30 minutes later I received a call from HR with a job offer.
