Personal Banker I Interview

Anonymous Employee in Vacaville, CA
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Vacaville, CA) in December 2014.

Interview

The only way to get into this company is making it past the group interview. If you aren't confident in yourself around another people you'd find the group interview very difficult. I'd suggest talking as much about yourself when you are given the opportunity to. There are anywhere from 2-13 people in the panel along with yourself...

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Redwood City, CA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online. Received an invitation to a group interview the next day. Had group interview a few days later (3 applicants in my group). Received a phone call from recruiter before I even got home from the banking center, inviting me back for a panel interview the following week. Panel interview was 9 applicants, with 4 Branch Managers conducting the interview. Again I received a call back with an offer the same day. For the interview: Know why you want to work for the company, and give specific examples of why you would be a good fit. Focus on sales experience, and give examples of times you've gone above and beyond for a customer or a time you turned a negative experience into a positive. Quick role play at the end. They give you a card of bullet points to cover. Be personable and make the conversation natural and your own, instead of just reading off the card. The easiest way to sell yourself is to just be outgoing and non-mechanic.

    Interview

    Group interview format. Was with three other applicants and two recruiters. Interview was pretty simple. We watched a corporate video describing the position, and went around the table answering some basic questions. It seemed that the recruiter was not terribly engaged in the process.

    Interview

    Internally posted for 21 positions within Wells Fargo for the same position I was in and was offered 1 interview and was declined for the position as they had other qualified candidates.....after 21 years with the bank and 7 years doing this same job position. I should not have had to interview. Wells Fargo should have offerend me a transfer. My customers loved me, respected me and trusted me.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Wells Fargo (San Francisco, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online. 24 hours later a recruiter contacted me to take an assessment online. Once that was complete, I was to call back in 24 hours with the reference number. Step 1 and 2 complete. Step 3 was getting an invite the following week for a group interview which consisted of a small group. I spoke with recruiter after group was over, nailed it in. He set up an immediate interview with my first choice and 30 minutes later I was going to be taking a background test. Very relaxed, very sales driven. if you have a stellar background in customer service/experience and any form of retail you should be fine answering a few simple questions.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiating. Offer was acceptable, far increased pay through self performance.

    Failed to answer one question the way they wanted it answered. What is your personal accomplishment? You must answer with a monetary amount that you sold. I am currently a manager so my achievements is through managing people and training for sales. They did not like that.

    at first, i applied the job online, then the website offered me a 1-800 number and asked me to call. during the phone interview, they simply asked me about my past customer service experience and what motivates me to achieve my goal.

In the end, Well fargo sent me an email said i was not match for their postion. BS.
