Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed 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.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Heard about openings within the company from current employee. Applied online for Wells Fargo on 11/14, emailed me an assessment same day, informed me that I passed upon completion and then provided me with a link for a location to sign up for an interview slot at the provided earliest date and time; which was on 11/26. Had a group interview with 5 other candidates and 2 interviewers (Recruiter and Store Manager) I then got an email stating that the position I applied for had been canceled on 11/30. However, I received a phone call from the Manager of another location that day (11/30) stating that my Recruiter had emailed him my information and requested to set up an interview if I was interested. Recruited emailed me afterward stating that she believed I'd be a great fit for that location. I met with the Manager 12/4 for an hour. Before the interview was completed he brought his Assistant Branch Manger in to introduce himself. Assistant Manager then asked me a few questions to get to know me better.Once the interview was over, Manager told me he would contact me by Friday 12/6 upon making any decisions. Within an hour of my interview being complete heard back from another Recruiter (as mine is on Vaca) and she extended me an offer contingent upon my background check and fingerprints clearing (Which it will!) I will work on 12/9!

    Interview Details

    The interview takes place with the branch manager and service manager. They like to have you roll play a sales experience you had in the past. This is because it is a highly sales focused job. If you do a good job here and look the part, meaning in business formal you should get the job.

    Interview Questions
    • The sales roll play of a past product I sold. It is awkward especially if you know they don't know anything about it or if you are doing a good job.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    interviewed at Wells Fargo in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview, a group interview, and a one on one interview. This process is good but it seems for me that if your are educated and well versed you will not be hired. If you have little experience and no education you will be fine. My first was for personal banker then I had an interview for Store manager 2. Who knows what to do with the company.If you lucky enough to get an offer, take it.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.

    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.
