The interviewers were very pleasant and it was a good interviewing experience.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Wells Fargo in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    With any corp company now you apply online. You will get a phone interview and they will ask you basic questions and qualifications. Punctuality, personality, are you good working individually and with a group. They will give you a few details about what the job is like and what you will be doing (very high level), if it is a good match they will pair you with the supervisors in the department and schedule an in person interview.

    The in-person interview goes over experiences and education (they do prefer people with degrees, though the job itself does not require any type of financial knowledge at all). They will talk to you about how have you handled difficult customers and how did you resolve their problems. Though customer interaction for this position is rare. They will also ask you about pattern analysis because of the nature of the job. You will need to understand patterns of what customers do, and if something looks abnormal for a customer.

    • They will work heavily on asking about difficult customers and also about how to track and find fraud patterns.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Wells Fargo in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    You sign up online, pass a little test, and then you get an e-mail to attend a group interview. The group interview itself is very laid back, and relax and they usually ask two questions about experience and goal making. If you pass the group interview, the recruiter who holds the group interview sends your information over to hiring managers around the area and they call you in for a one-on-one. Once you pass that, then you should get an offer within 3-5 business days.

    Interview Questions

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview process consisted of 3 interviews. One semi technical/get to know you, one more technical, and one that was strictly a get to know you/fit interview. Each interview lasted approximately 30 minutes. Overall process was fairly quick from first interview to being offered the job and a relaxed process as well.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation Details
    I didn't really have to negotiate. The offer I received was more than what I was hoping to get, so I was happy with it. They offered me a signing bonus and annual bonus potential on top of what I felt was a generous salary base. I believe the signing bonus was because of my Master's Degree in Finance.

    Teller Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Park City, UT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Park City, UT
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is quite lengthy. After applying you are asked to answer a questionnaire about your background, then there is a group interview. The group interview typically has somewhere between 6-10 people interested/qualified for a teller position. After the group interview it is up to the branch or multiple branch service managers, depending on whether there is more than one branch looking for tellers. I was interviewed by two separate branches. The branches were world's apart in their interview process- one totally winged it and asked me questions as he thought of them and the other followed the WF scripted Q&A. Once you are offered the job you are then asked to fill out a background check and go for fingerprints. Only then is a start date scheduled. The whole process took me about 3 weeks.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was for me to sell a pen to the service manager. The questions were typical interview questions apart from that.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. Tellers are allotted hours and paid hourly.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was fairly long. I first did a pre-screening interview on the phone, then a 2:1 interview in their office. A week later, they called me for another interview. It was a little bit tiresome for the pay they were offering. The first two interviews went well compared to the last one which was more technical.
