    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Reno, NV) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I was hired internally. I applied, had an in-person interview with Recruiting Manager (would have been a phone interview, but I worked at the same building she did). My manager let me know that I had been set up for an interview. Went to the interview and interviewed with one other Branch Manager than my own.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were very typical. Tell me about a time... Use STAR format.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not able to negotiate. Recruiting Head said I need to talk to Branch Manager, Branch Manager said she doesn't do any of that, that I need to talk to Recruiting Head. I got the run around.

    I went through 4 interviews. The first is a phone interview with a head hunting group. Usually ManPower Group. They ask the usual tell me about yourself, why do you have an interest in this position questions. They have you do 2 scenarios for a mach client interaction. It was very simple. The second was with the Branch Manager and the third with the Market Area President.

    Interview

    Got an email about 2 weeks after I applied to set up a time for interview. It was a group interview, there were about ten of us. We watched a video on Wells Fargo, and the position. We went around introducing ourselves, what we wanted to do in the company, what our future goals were, and what kind of experience we had. They also wanted to know our preferred location, and hours.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Wells Fargo (Las Vegas, NV) in September 2012.

    Interview

    The process was a joke. I completed an online app. A recruiter called and scheduled a group interview on Rainbow in Las Vegas. The online instructions gave directions to the location which I followed. As I arrived my GPS was telling me to go 1/4 mile farther but I followed the WF directions which led me to a maze of office buildings, never getting to the location. Went back and followed my GPS and arrived. The facilitator asked for our references which luckily at the last minute I had grabbed since the online instructions did not mention this detail; they however did say not to wear jeans or tennis shoes and to bring a pen (duh). We were asked how far we were willing to drive for $10 hr, up to 20 miles. When applying online you specifically select a certain branch that had the opening so this seemed like the old "bait and switch". At the end she stated we would be emailed a decline or move on to the next step by Friday 4:00 pm. Never go an email, had to check the status of my app online to find I had an offer to a location outside my desired travel distance.

    Interview Questions

    • None were difficult, check online, there are helpful typical questions and be prepared with your own answers.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I applied to work in a certain branch but was offered a position considerably farther than I am willing to drive. A complete waste of time, my online app stated the location I desired to work.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Reno, NV) in November 2011.

    Interview

    the phone interview was a series of work related questions. I passed that. then the 1-1 interview was all about sales & when I would offer a sales answer the person doing the interview said it wasn't a sales. job so when I answer another question it was about up saleing products & services & still the lady that was reading the questions to me that sounded like sales. She keep saying it's not sales. so it was very confusing & I thought I nailed it with my 20 years in customer service & sales. but no job offer.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Las Vegas, NV) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Applied online to severall companies and Wells was very quick to contact me and go through the interview process. Step 1 was a phone interview with a recruiter. Step 2 was a group interview at the HR center. Step 3 was a 1:1 interview with a branch manager. Though not always the case, I also had a Step 4, which was another 1:1 with another branch manager. This was because the first 1:1 was for the district and the second was with the manager of the specific branch that I was going to be assigned to.

    Negotiation

    Told very specifically that there was no negotiation allowed. Take it or leave it.

    Interview

    I applied online and took an IQ / Intelligence test, then about 5 days later received an email to call 800 and spoke with a representative and scheduled a group appointment a week later. There were about 12 people, first they explained the position you applied for, the benefits. Then they ask to introduce ourselves: name, work related background, why you want to work for them, hours and days available to work, future career goals, and if you are bilingual. After that they ask you to tell about a specific customer experience, the approach and the final outcome. Pretty easy they said they would let you know if you didnt get the job by email before Friday (3 days later). If you got the job a store manager will call you back for a 1-1 interview
