Financial Analyst Program Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Minneapolis, MN

I applied online - interviewed at Wells Fargo in July 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online in June for the Financial Analyst Program in Power and Utilities. Job location was in Minneapolis. Received an email a month later from a recruiter to schedule a phone interview. Recruiter was nice and courteous, had a 30 minute conversation about my background, some technical questions. She indicated I would hear back from her within two weeks. However, after 2 emails and a phone call to her office, I never heard anything back until September, when I received a form email indicating that they would not be pursuing my candidacy further. Very unprofessional HR...

Interview Question – Nothing super difficult in terms of technical or behavioral questions...just stuff like what are the 3 financial statements, which would be the best to use to evaluate a company, etc.   Answer Question

Diverse Segments Internship Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Minneapolis, MN

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in March 2013.

Interview Details – First you get called to do a short (5-10 minute) phone interview. All of the questions are very basic. Then you come in for a panel interview (3-4 people). This interview asks basically all behavioral questions (tell me about a time when....). I applied for 4 different internships with Wells Fargo and was interviewed for all of them. They ask the same exact questions for each internship. Also I found the pre-interview conference call thing very unhelpful.

Interview Question – They were all very simple. Just know your resume and examples of time when you worked in a team, solved problems.....   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I got offered 3 of the 4 positions I applied for. They all pay the same ($15 per hour). I was later offered a different internship with a different company which paid more.

Inbound Sales Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee
Minneapolis, MN

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

Interview Details – I applied online. About a week or two later was called to set-up a phone interview. The phone interview was pretty quick and easy and at the end scheduled a face to face interview for the next day.
At the face to face interview the guy interviewing me asked about ten questions about sales stuff. At the end he gave me an objection to why maybe I was not a good fit but I overcame that objection right away. He asked me to wait and a couple of minutes later the boss guy came into the room and offered me the job.

Interview Question – Generic questions. Be prepared to answer why they should hire you.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – None
