I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (San Diego, CA).
Applied online and received a phone call from the recruiter. Quick phone interview, less than 15 minutes. Soon after I received phone calls from managers that wanted to interview me. Straight forward and simple interview. I believe I did things a bit backwards though because you are supposed to do a group interview first before you do an individual interview.
- Give me an example of a time when you went above and beyond to help a customer. Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (San Diego, CA) in July 2015.
One of the first steps I took was going online and creating an account on the careers page for Wells Fargo. I applied to multiple positions and I received an email with interview times to choose from. The interview I attended was a group interview with seven other candidates, including the recruiting officer. The recruiter asked us three questions and we had to answer them in STAR format (Situation, Action and Result). The recruiter then told us that they would call us if they want us, or they would send an email if they did not feel we are fit for the position. Fortunately, I received a phone call and a few more afterwards. Currently I am waiting to have an interview with a branch manager.

You're interview with the same questions from a lead teller interview with the company. The only way you can interview for a SM position if you are a lead teller that has already been to the SM training course.

I applied online. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (San Diego, CA).
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.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (San Diego, CA) in August 2014.
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.
- Did you have a sales goal at your previous job. If so, state how you reached that goal. Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (San Diego, CA).
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.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (San Diego, CA) in April 2014.
I was already a teller at Wells Fargo. In my area the rule of thumb is if you hit gold in sales for 2 quarters in a row, you are elligible for a promotion. I was successful, so my manager notified my district manager and he immediately said I should be sent to training. I had to apply for the position online, then I had a phone interview, and an interview with my existing branch manager. The phone interview was just a couple questions like why do you want the position? What are you doing to prepare yourself for it? And she discussed my sales numbers. The interview with my manager was the real interview to focus on.
- Please describe a time when you could have gotten a sale from something that would have gone against our sales quality manual and you didn't? Answer Question
- Please describe a time that you had to handle a difficult or irate customer. Answer Question
- What do you think you could do different than other bankers to stand out both in sales and service? Answer Question
There is no negotiation phase. The recruiter calls and congratulates you and tells you how much you will be getting paid and when the training starts.
