Very Difficult Interview

SharePoint Business Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
San Francisco, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Wells Fargo in February 2009.

Interview Details – It was slow. I got responses from the various levels of interviewers very slowly. I had to inquire with them many times. The technical interview went fine and then i got interview with the Director. It was totally not i would expect. It hypothetical situations, role play...for which i was not prepared (not in the mind set to do a role play with the Director i haven't met yet and give authentic replies that i will probably if i am working there.) I don't know if it a productive way to interview. I didn't go well and i was not offered the job...

Interview Question – Suppose you are the BA and the technical manager does not agree with you on the solution. He wants to build a Java application instead of using SharePoint. So how you go about talking to him?   View Answers (4)

Technology Project Coordinator Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
San Francisco, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Wells Fargo in January 2011.

Interview Details – I had a phone interview for a job in the technology department. The interview was an hour and I spoke with the department manager who I was referred to by the senior vice president of that department. The interview was hard but fun and I gained a lot from it. I really liked how the manger asked questions about my experience to making sure I was a good fit for the position and the company.

We decided that the particular position she was hiring for was not the best fit for me but that there was a position in another department where I could be a good fit and work with a team. The call ended with a scheduled time for a follow for the position in the other department.

I had a great experience speaking with employees at Wells Fargo. I have experienced mutual support from the managers I have spoken with so far at the company and felt like there was a lot of team support.

I felt like the interview questions were challenging but that the employees and manager I spoke with were supportive and had a lot of integrity. I

'm excite and look forward to my follow up phone call and learning more about the company and position before my next interview.

Interview Question – What have I done and worked on from a technical perspective?   Answer Question

Systems Analyst - Level IV Interview

Anonymous Employee
San Francisco, CA

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Wells Fargo in November 2011.

Interview Details – I saw this position in Dice.com and contacted the resource supply agency. They did the initial screening. Then submitted the resume to the Client (Wells Fargo). Wells showed interest in my skill set and scheduled a phone interview. With 2 people on the phone it lasted for 50 mins. Then attended In-person interview 4 days later. 3 groups of 2 people in each interviewed. 1 Sr. QA Manager, 3 Team leads and 2 Sr. QA analysts. I've no idea regarding this. 1st round (lasted for 1hr) was really cool with lot of questions, 2nd one I really felt pressure because of the way it went. During second round, out of 1:15 mins, i was on the white board for about 1hr. 3rd round (lasted for 50mins) was not bad. Finally after 2 days, got the news that they hired me:-)

Interview Question – I can't point to one particular question....imagine how the interview was when you have 1hr phone call and 4.5 hrs In-Person.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate...not my type.
