Personal Banker Interview

Personal Banker

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo.

Interview Details – I was initially called for a phone screening. Once i passed that test i was called in for an interview. The branch i applied at was an "in-store" branch and was very small so the interview was conducted in the tiny manager's office/breakroom. After the interview of approximately 30 minutes I was offered the position on the spot.

Interview Question – There honestly wasn't a question I didnt expect or one out of the ordinary for this type of job. The most important question I believe they asked was what I personally was going to bring to the table in order to help the team as a whole progress.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I accepted what they offered without negotiation

Personal Banker Interview

Personal Banker
Newport News, VA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in August 2012.

Interview Details – Their hiring process starts with an online application and an online assessment that determines whether or not your are fit for the position which you are applying for. Once that is complete you get an email to choose a time for a phone interview with a recruiter. After the phone interview the recruiter determines if you qualify for the position and then sets up a time to conduct a one on one interview with the appropriate hiring manager for the region. My one on one was conducted between myself and two other branch managers from my district. After a successful one on one interview I was asked to come back for a second interview with a branch manager of a branch with an available position. After the second interview I had to wait almost 3 weeks before I got an offer.

Interview Question – All of the questions reflect sales and customer service scenarios, they are all behavior based and require you to explain scenarios you faced in past work experiences. These included overcoming objections, highest payout sales scenario, unsatisfied customers, etc. There were no curveball questions and the interviewers follow a designated worksheet for the interview. Keep the interviewers engaged and discuss impactful situations. They did ask about my weakness so just turn that into a positive response and you'll be fine (i.e. being too detail oriented, taking on alot of responsibility, etc.)   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Simple, WF was able to beat my requested salary level
