Interview Details – As a new hire who has used this website for more than just interview tips, etc, I feel compelled to write at least a little something on what my hiring experience was.
The application process is fairly simple. You apply online and from there, you may or may not be selected to interview. FYI: if you have any criminal record regarding theft, or anything of that nature, you wont pass the background check. This seems to be pretty stringent, as one might imagine, as you are applying for a position at a bank.
I applied to a branch in San Francisco from Los Angeles. I applied to actually a few different branches around LA, but I was selected to interview for branches in SF. The interview process is very basic. It consists of basically three parts: group interview, (this step seems to vary case by case) panel interview, interview with manager/ district manager.
The group interview was very standard. There were 8 of us in our group, three made it, and we were each asked two questions- pretty standard. The two questions were primarily based on customer service and sales. (Goals achieved and what you've done in each). This took some time, over an hour, but was a lot less in dept that I had imagined it would be. After this process, granted you are selected to proceed, you will be contacted within a few days to interview again.
I did not interview with a group panel. This goes next for some, apparently not for others.
I interviewed with my assistant manager and manager of the branch fairly soon after. The questions seemed to be relatively standard. Why do you want to be at wells, where do you see your self, sell me your phone, etc etc. If you have made it to this point, I believe you have a pretty good shot at landing the job.
The interview process took almost a month because of the down time. Wells seems to have a fairly quick process, but its not to go without saying whoever is hiring you will definitely have an impact on whether or not your process is expedited.
Confidence is key; youre applying for a sales / customer service position, you should be able to sell yourself to your interviewers. They know what they are looking for.
Interview Question – Remember customer service and sales skills. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Negotiations were almost non existent. I asked how much average bankers made and was informed a number. I was moving out from LA, though, and I requested a slightly higher amount. I was counter-offered by a number marginally higher than i had requested.
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in February 2013.
Interview Details – I applied through on-campus recruiting and interviewed two weeks later with a senior manager and analyst. There were some behavioral questions, as well as some more technical questions involving financial statements and key ratios, but nothing too out of the ordinary. The interviewers were friendly and eager to answer questions I had.
