Personal Banker II Interview

Anonymous Employee
Mountain View, CA

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Wells Fargo in May 2010.

Interview Details – Very easy. Group setting, team exercises. If you are even slightly motivated you can shine as a group leader to get the exercise done. If you can take the pre exam for the series 7, this will work in your favor if you do well.

Negotiation Details – phone call with Store Manager

CSSR Interview

Anonymous Employee
San Jose, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in April 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online, few days later got an email to schedule a group interview. The group interview only consisted 2 other people wanting the same position. The cool part was that they applied at a different city than I did. First they have you introduce yourself and where you last/currently work at and why wells fargo. After they ask you a question about a time you gave great customer service and the next question was about sales. They wanted to know when you had a sales goal, how did you achieved it, and what did you overcome by achieving it. After 30mins the interview was over. We all pass and was told that they will email us with the next steps, They called me a week later and scheduled an interview with the branch manager. He asked a lot of questions about customer service and sales. After I left he called me 10mins later and offer me the job!

Interview Question – none. standard interview questions about your experience   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was not one because they offer me more than I thought I wanted.

Teller Interview

Anonymous Employee
Milpitas, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in December 2011.

Interview Details – Applied online. Go in to the branch, look presentable, ask for the Service Manager, and let them know that you applied online and are looking forward to hearing from them. You should receive a call for an interview. They'll ask the usual questions like:
1. Why Wells Fargo? (Great company that offers great services and excellent customer service)
2. Where do you see yourself in 3-5 years? (With the company. Moving up, hopefully, to a banker position or higher.
3. How have you handled a problem with a customer in the past? (Some story ending with a happy customer)

Make sure to smile through the interview. Be upbeat and as charismatic as possible lol.

Most questions will be regarding sales and customer service!

Interview Question – I didn't know much about the products and they asked me how I would sell a CD   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Not much of a negotiating phase.

Teller Interview

Sunnyvale, CA

I applied online - interviewed at Wells Fargo in May 2011.

Interview Details – Applied online and got a phone interview within a few days. got scheduled for a group interview at corporate in san jose. Just went around asking behavioral questions. i only applied for Sunnyvale locations. Small city so it took a month for someone to find me and call me in for interview. got interviewed with the service manager and branch manager and asked about previous experience (starbucks) and if i knew Spanish. I said 'poquito' and said i aced spanish in high school which i did. they said they'll interview a few more candidates and get back to me. I got a call back after 2 hours from the recruiter offering me the position for 12.5/hour

Interview Question – What do you do when a customer has an issue and starts raising his voice   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I asked how much I will be getting paid and mentioned how Starbucks paid me high. They ended up matching it. The key is to play the game right when it comes to negotiating
