Personal Banker I Interview

Personal Banker I
San Diego, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in April 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online, and this is when the interviewing process begins. Their system determines whether you move forward or not. Made it to the "Cattle" interview. Cattle interviews are the best if your newbie, no experience. All you have to do is be up-beat. But, can be the worst if you have experience.

At the Cattle interview there are a series of questions or topics to discuss:
1. Why Wells Fargo?
2. An over view of your personal work history in a sales environment.
3. What are your strengths and skills that you bring to the position?
4. How does the position align with your career goals?

2nd phase of discuss topics:
1. Discuss a case in which you went out of your way for your customer. How did you exceed the expected customer service?
- and what motivated you to deliver such customer service?

2. Sales: regarding sales, discuss an example in which you had a goal to accomplish a certain level of sales. What was the goal? What where the challenges? How did you over come the challenges? What was achieved? What did you learn about yourself?

Good Luck!
