Teller Interview

Teller
Minneapolis, MN

I applied online - interviewed at Wells Fargo in April 2010.

Interview Details – Long, demeaning,They made each person in room feel like it was a cattle call. Not being very personable. Making you try to be some thing you are not. Then once hired, got worse,excepting too much sales not the best customer service. I felt as though money was being transferred in odd ways and I questioned management. Results were achieved and I will not work there again, even when asked to come back. Their practices are not fair.

Interview Question – agreeing with process   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – money practices odd.

Phone Banker I Interview

Phone Banker I
Shoreview, MN

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in October 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online and took one week for them to get back to me to set up phone interview.
After phone interview had a face to face interview with 2 Supervisors. All in all the interviews were very straight forward for anyone that has worked in customer service. Call center experience very helpful as well but most have only been in customer service.

Interview Question – Tell me about an obstacle you faced when trying to serve a customer and what creative way did you use to get through it.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They offered about 2 different departments to work in, and from there 4 different time slots. Pay not negotiable.

Technology Intern Interview

Technology Intern
Minneapolis, MN

I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Wells Fargo.

Interview Details – First round interview: (didn't get past) Two of the three guys interviewing were typical cold, unfriendly, intimidating guys who didn't project a good vibe for the company. One guy appeared like he didn't want to be there. Another guy was pretentious. The other guy was friendly, conversational, etc. It wasn't a terrible set of interviewers, but they weren't fantastic.

Interview Question – Nothing out of the ordinary. Tell me about a time when you or a group you worked in did something wrong and how you fixed it.   Answer Question

Phone Banker Interview

Phone Banker
Shoreview, MN

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Wells Fargo in June 2013.

Interview Details – They will start by calling and scheduling a phone interview. The phone interview was conducted by someone from HR who was more or less indifferent to anything I said. Standard questions, they will ask you to rate yourselves on various aspects of the job 1-5. I said 5 to a lot of things and she tested me by asking me a random question about that(technology wise) and luckily I knew the answer. She asked me to tell me what the keyboard shortcut is to switch screens on a computer(Alt-Tab.)

Once you pass the phone interview, they can call you in for the real interview which is taken by two interviewers at once. I suited up completely, which in retrospect might have been overkill. A shirt and tie would've sufficed. Once you pass the phone interview and they have reviewed your application and they like you, they basically just want to meet you in person to see if you are more or less what you say you are. You basically already have the job unless you're completely different from your application. A lot of the questions are repeats from the phone interview, just take your time and try to give detailed and informative answers.

Interview Question – Tell us about a time where you exceeded a sales goal.   View Answer

Very Difficult Interview

Anonymous Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Minneapolis, MN

I applied online - interviewed at Wells Fargo in March 2014.

Interview Details – I was contacted via email and I went on to phone interview with initial person. Then I was scheduled for second interview to do over the phone.

Interview Question – There really wasn't a difficult question or unexpected question. I didn't get to have the interview I was told that until I pay some PTO back from when I work for a company over year ago I was unable to continue with the interview. Of course this is the first time I'm hearing that they overpaid me eight hours of PTO and I no longer have paperwork to show but that was incorrect. So basically extortion is how I see it.   View Answer
