Personal Banker I Interview

Personal Banker I
Sacramento, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in May 2014.

Interview Details – I attended the interview with WF Branch Manager, after I had successfully the group interview with the Recruiter (a week ago) and passed the on-line screen quiz about 5 days before that. I would say that the manager performed the interview with high professionalism going through a formal quiz form with me.

Interview Question – There wasn't any unexpected or difficult questions. I just had the impression that he didn't read previously my Resume, as he was confused about my former Bank employer.   View Answer

Personal Banker I Interview

Personal Banker I
Augusta, GA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in May 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online, completed assessment the same day, scheduled interview for location. It was a group interview. Pretty laid back and HR rep was helpful. She spoke of the position duties, next steps, asked a few questions that all interviewers had to answer, and this lasted 2 hours. Same day received email to interview with store managers. Interviewed with store managers (two) a week later. Bring resume, dress professionally, cover any and all visible tats. Was asked questions in STAR format that pertained to customer service, sales skills, and mentoring ability. The interviewers were nice but didn't seem really interested in the answers to the questions they were asking. Interview last 1 hour. Received email two days later that another candidate was selected but that I would get scheduled for another interview at another store within 4 weeks.

Interview Question – Two situations where you went over and above for a customer.   Answer Question
