    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo (Oakland, CA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    You must be patient and stay positive! The group interview went by very quickly and there were only 5 other participants. The questions the recruiter will ask are: tell me about yourself and what your most previous job was. Also, tell me a time where you went above and beyond to help an angry customer. They will call you within two weeks, not one, like they say. Again, you must be patient!....but it's worth it if you want to work for them.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Wells Fargo (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Wells Fargo (San Francisco, CA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    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.
