Personal Banker Interview

Personal Banker

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in May 2010.

Interview Details – Starts with a phone interview with the recruiter which is pretty straight forward. Then, interviewed with a few different managers for different stores, the store you apply for is not necessarily going to be the store you work in. Hiring managers will discuss amongst each other which candidates they like.

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

Interview Details – Short, quick, and no intense at all. They hire knuckle heads and people unfit for the job all the time.

Interview Question – "Where do you see yourself in five years."

They want you to say "manager at Wells" or whatever. But a career at the Wells can be stressful and short lived.

Difficult Interview

Personal Banker Interview

Personal Banker

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

Interview Details – Process takes 1-2 months. I finally got an email back to rsvp to a group interview a month after I applied. I didn't get a phone interview though. It was a group interview where you have 2 hours to grab an interview with a manager and ALSO the district manager. You have to bring two copies of your resume and make sure it stands out if anything. They ask you questions about leadership, how you motivate a team, how you would meet a quota if you are behind, etc.

Interview Question – Be prepared for questions about reaching a quota and sales.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I had already received another job offer eariler

Personal Banker Interview

Personal Banker
Escondido, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in October 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online. Received call from regional recruiter. Very friendly. Interviewed in large group; maybe 15-20 people. Long interview process 2 hours, complete with company video, 3 pages of paperwork, question and answer time. During Q and A I began to realize recruiter was looking for aggressive sales minded individuals. Many of the candidates were young, inexperienced in banking and had a difficult time correlating how they could best perform sales in banking after having just come from 'sales' in the food industry. Recruiter interrupted a couple of individuals that lost direction in their answer.

Interview Question – Tell me about your most recent sales accomplishment?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Offer was only for 20 hours and the drive would take me about 35 minutes to get to the location I was offered. The dollars just wouldn't work out.
