    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and a few days later received an email saying to schedule my group interview. At the group interview there were about 10 others including myself. The recruiter first explained the position and what makes a good teller. She also told us what questions she was going to ask us so we could write down our answers to make us less nervous. The questions were based mainly on customer service.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Got called into a group interview within a couple of days. 2 hours after the group interview I got a call from the recruiter and got my first branch interview. The branch called me 3 days later to set up the 1-1 interview. I did well on the first interview, but they ended up hiring internally. They called me exactly 1 week later saying I didn't get the position and I was referred back to the recruiter. I got my second branch interview, but the branch never called me back and neither did the recruiter. Mostly all interviews emphasized SALES.

    Summer Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview Details

    My first interview was conducted on my campus by a team of two relationship managers from their office. The first interview followed a script which included answering some analytical questions along with some behavioral questions. I had actually prepared beforehand utilizing some of the questions from Glassdoor which helped immensely. Following this, I got a call to schedule a final interview at the office. I was competing with two other students for the role. During the final interview I interviewed for about 2 hours, rotating between groups of 2 or 3 employees of all different roles. The main concern here was to see if I was a good fit for the company. Most of these interviews consisted of explaining my resume and asking questions about the company and the employee's experiences. The day after these interviews I got a call saying I got the position.

    Interview Questions
    • What financial statements would you want to look at to decide if you would lend to a company? (Or something like that, be sure to brush up on the different financial statements and what they're used for)   Answer Question

    Personal Banker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Escondido, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Escondido, CA
    Application Details

    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.

    Personal Banker I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, and this is when the interviewing process begins. Their system determines whether you move forward or not. Made it to the "Cattle" interview. Cattle interviews are the best if your newbie, no experience. All you have to do is be up-beat. But, can be the worst if you have experience.

    At the Cattle interview there are a series of questions or topics to discuss:
    1. Why Wells Fargo?
    2. An over view of your personal work history in a sales environment.
    3. What are your strengths and skills that you bring to the position?
    4. How does the position align with your career goals?

    2nd phase of discuss topics:
    1. Discuss a case in which you went out of your way for your customer. How did you exceed the expected customer service?
    - and what motivated you to deliver such customer service?

    2. Sales: regarding sales, discuss an example in which you had a goal to accomplish a certain level of sales. What was the goal? What where the challenges? How did you over come the challenges? What was achieved? What did you learn about yourself?

    Good Luck!
