    Phone Banker I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beaverton, OR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beaverton, OR
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    The whole process took about a 2-3 weeks. I applied online and got an email to set up a phone screening the next day.
    First interview is the phone screening (this is generally done by a recruiter), they will ask you some general questions but be sure to answer all of them backed with examples (S.T.A.R. questions). My phone interview only lasted about 10 minutes, because it seems like they make a high volume of calls daily. The recruiter asked me only 2-4 questions.
    1. "Why are you interested in this position?"
    2. "Tell me about a time you made a sale."
    3. "Tell me about a time you had a conflict.. give specific examples."

    After you pass the screening, the recruiter will schedule a face-to-face interview. This will be with 2 supervisors (one will be asking you the main questions, and the other will try to pick and pull more answers out of you if your answer is too vague.) This interview lasted a little less than an hour. The key words to use/take note of are: customer service, sales and service go hand-in-hand, actively listening, empathizing, and be very VERY specific (because they may re-ask you the same question in a different way if you are too vague). During the interview they go over your resume (so be sure to study it), and then after that they will ask you a series of S.T.A.R questions where they expect you to give a very detailed example followed by the positive outcomes, and they will question if you got recognized for your previous work (and how you got recognized for it). After the face-to-face interview they will notify you within 3 days (email if you got the job, phone call if you didn't.) I was hired right on the spot and got an email within 20 minutes after my interview.

    After that, you do a finger-print background check (no drug tests, at least for me.) and then you're all set to go for training for 6 weeks!

    Interview Questions
    • "Give me an example of a time when you had a conflict, and how did you overcome that? Be very specific."
      "Why are you interested in this position/why do you want to work for Wells Fargo?"
      "Why is customer service important to you?"
      "Give me an example of a time when you went beyond customer services, and how did that affect sales?"
      "Do you think you work well with a team or alone with projects?"
      "What do you want to get out of this position?"
      ... etc.

    Phone Banker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salem, OR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salem, OR
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Wells Fargo in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    After submitting the online application, which focuses on sales and customer interactions, qualified candidates will receive a phone interview. This highlights the skills presented in the application and the interviewer determines your experience navigating computer systems, sales, and customer service. The next step is an on-site interview which goes a little more in depth than the phone interview. They really try to assess if the position is a good fit. They determine adaptability and basic professional skills.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe a situation in which you had to meet specific (quantified) sales goals and what steps did you take to meet those goals. This is difficult if past experiences haven't set very specific goals to meet.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was able to express my schedule preference from several choices. If believe your experience/ education warrants higher pay than what they offer, definitely do express that. They are pretty fair and will at least hear you out.

    After an initial telephone interview, candidates are brought in for a group interview. In my case, there was approximately 10-12 other people. Questions are asked, and answers are given by anyone--no set turns or system. After the group interview, prospective employees are either offered the position via telephone or brought in for an additional one-on-one interview.

    Initial communications were stellar. I felt like our recruiting coordinator gave me the most welcoming experience. The interviewers were friendly, and the turnaround time for hearing a result was fast.
