    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Wells Fargo in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview process is very odd... Phone screening, then a who-is-better group interview, which plays the company off as 100% about the customers and customer service, and then a one-on-one interview at a banking center. At no point was the bank's philosophy conveyed clearly. Group interview portrayed customer service as #1, and the tables turn to sales once in a banking center.

    Interview Questions
    • What do you have to bring to the table that would make you a good fit for Wells Fargo? (To which my answer conformed to the customer service aspect of the group interview. Came to find out I did not get the job due to a supposed lack of interest in sales. I had worked in sales and held a successful sales position in a competing bank for years prior)   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    On a Thursday I uploaded my résumé and applied for a banker position. Moments later I got an email with a link to an assessment. The assessment was just general questions about your experience. Then another few moments later I got an email asking me to pick a group interview date and time. I picked a date for the following week on a Thursday. The group interview consisted of me and 6 others. We sat in a class room format with the recruiter in front of us. She turned on a power point and gave a brief overview of the company and had us go around the room asking us to introduce ourselves with an overview of out experience and previous job history, where we want to be in 5 years, and why Wells Fargo. The recruiter just writes as you speak. Then she asked tell me a time when you went out of your way for a customer, tell me about a big sales goal you have had, and what you are most proud of. Each question going around the room. After that she gives an overview of the position and asked if we had any questions. She didn't ask to see our resume but I recommend bringing it. I answered all questions very focused on sales and customer service. I also asked questions. Try and show your personality. The interview took about 1 1/2 hours. Then about 30 mins later I got an email inviting me to a second interview with the district manager. Bring your resume to this interview. He had a paper he read questions off of. He first asked to get to know me like what I like to do and why I want the position. Then he asked 1. Tell me a time you went out of your way for a customer. 2. Tell me about a sales goal and how you achieved it. 3.do you think your nice? 4. Tell me a time when you coached another employee? Again I just answered these questions focused on sales and customer service. My interview was on a Monday and they told me Wednesday I got the job. Make sure you dress very professional. Then I had to fill out a background check they emailed to me and made an appointment to do my fingerprints. I start training in 2 weeks. The training is 4 weeks in a town 2 hours away. They pay for hotel, food, and mileage.
