    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Wells Fargo in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiting company for a 6 month contract assignment. I was told it was PM work related to their Fraud applications and provide a generic job requisition.

    When we had the interview, it was not as advertised. They actually wanted someone who could work indefinitely doing program management and release management tasks. Love Wells Fargo's entrepreneurial ethic, but think they tend to use contractors more as low cost FTEs for which they cannot get a budget. So, what was described to me by the recruiter and what was discussed in the interview were significantly different and I found the interview to be a waste of my time.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Wells Fargo in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter submitted me to Wells Fargo. Wells Fargo expressed interest and scheduled a teleconference interview. Two people asked me questions for an hour. I asked the interviewer if they would like any clarification on any of the answers and they stated that they did not. Most of these questions seemed to point to how I would deal with a project that was behind schedule and people that were uncooperative. They then stated to the recruiter that I did not provide enough detail. I was then told that they wanted a second interview and was not told who my contact persons are. I got the same two people asking more of the same questions for another hour. I was then told that another candidate was selected. I also learned that this project was 2 weeks behind and that a P.M. was supposed to be hired two moths prior.

    interviewed at Wells Fargo in November 2009.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Wells Fargo in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    My consulting company arranged the interview with the hiring manager. The hiring manager called me at the number I had given. I was asked questions about previous projects I had managed which I described. I was told what the job would entail. I then related what I had done in my previous jobs to the position I would be doing. The hiring manager said he would contact my consulting firm to bring me in. I gathered from this statement that I was hired (which I was).
