    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview Details

    The process starts out online and will transition to a telephone interview. An assessment is often sent out to candidates depending upon the position applied for. Next step would be a group or individual interview before moving toward selection. Recruiters are great about answering questions about the position and process.
    STAR interview model is used.
    Process moves fairly quickly.

    Interview Questions
    • As long as one is prepared for the type of interview model, there should be no difficulty.
      Research the model before hand.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview Details

    Apply through Internet. Schedule sit down with District Manager and Community Bank President. Asked very specific questions regarding employee performance and relations issues. If I wasn't hired, it may have been inappropriate to discuss current co workers performance inconsistencies. Two hour interview. Follow up regarding when a decision would be made was very vague.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    This interview came as an internal application. I was a manager at a smaller, less sophisticated branch in a different market. Once I got the initial interview it was done with two levels of management via telephone. Later I was flown to Miami to meet my direct supervisor and had what was truly an all day interview and visit in the market. Two days after I flew home I received an offer.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Wells Fargo in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was then given a telephone interview for a Teller position. Was determined to be "overqualifed" and referred to Regional Manager for consideration as a Customer Service Manager. Interviewed by a panel of two (suppose to be three however third person local store mgr resigned). Was again deemed "over qualifed. Asked to consider applying for Store Mgr. position. Interviewed again by two Regional Managers. Advised that I would be contact by Friday with results. Two weeks later I contacted them. They advised that a late entrant ocurred and that I would hear by end of week. Contacted them again two weeks later and they advised they selected the late entrant. Now they want me to reapply for the Customer Service Manager's position. I haven't seen them meet any deadline they themselves established. Their Store is in turmoil (their words), they aren't living up to their company's strategic initative of Communicating (both ways). It's quite clear that the problems affecting Wells Fargo are not at the store level but with Mid-Level Management and above. High local turnover is the sympton. Poor Mid-Level Management is the source of the sympton.
