CSSR Customer Service Sales Representative Interview

CSSR Customer Service Sales Representative
San Francisco, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Wells Fargo in February 2013.

Interview Details – I submitted an online application and was contacted by a recruiter. He did a short phone interview and then scheduled a group interview. The questions in the group interview were very generic interview questions. I passed and had a 1:1 interview with the branch manager a few days later. The questions in the 1:1 were a little more in depth, she wanted to make sure I had the customer service skills for the job.

Interview Question – Tell me a time when you went above and beyond your duties at work.   Answer Question

Wealth Management Summer Intern Interview

Wealth Management Summer Intern
San Francisco, CA

I interviewed at Wells Fargo in March 2010.

Interview Details – I went through the whole process for a summer internship and was one of the final 3. I was rejected during the final interview for being too "Entrepreneurial". I suppose it didn't pay off to think too much outside of the box? The interview process otherwise was very easy as long as you stayed genuine.

Interview Question – Standard Wall Street Journal questions, what is interesting in the position, where you want to be in 10 years. Not much weight on the dress, in fact I was told I was overdressed for the interview.   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Teller Interview

Teller
San Francisco, CA

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Wells Fargo.

Interview Details – I had interviewed with a mid age lady who is the branch manager. The interview was pretty easy and straightforward. However, she was rude and critical. Honestly, the qualifications and requirements of a teller position are really minimum. But she was trying to scare me with the monthly quotas and referrals we have to meet per day. And she even questioned me why do I think cash handling is a simple task for me. I felt like I got insulted.

Interview Question – Why cash handling is easy?   Answer Question

Personal Banker I Interview

Personal Banker I
Walnut Creek, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in July 2009.

Interview Details – apply online, do a first phone interview, then group interview. Once you pass the group interview, you interview with a branch manager. Then you are hired.

Interview Question – They wanted to know exactly the type of sales I have done in the past, whether I went through the grind of cold calling, door-to-door. They really like that. They want to know you are not afraid to be denied and have a rebuttal for every "No" a customer throws your way.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Simple. They tell you what they can budget for your pay and you either agree or disagree.

Systems Analyst - Level IV Interview

Systems Analyst - Level IV
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.
