Underwriter Interview

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Wells Fargo.

Interview Details – I was under a contract so therefore everything was pretty much taken care of for me from my job agency. The building was very misleading though because it is next to an actual bank. The call center isn't like anyone that I have seen before. But everyone was very nice.

Interview Question – None, it was pretty straight forward. Typical personality questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There wasn't one because we were under contract.

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Wells Fargo in July 2010.

Interview Details – It was short and sweet. Went through the typical Q&A for any other underwriter job. Went through the job responsibilities, past experiences, and expectations. At the time it was a they were going through a huge wiring phase. If you had any reliable source of experience it wasn't too hard to land the job.

Underwriting Interview

Underwriting
Des Moines, IA

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Wells Fargo in August 2010.

Interview Details – Interviewed for 2 different underwriting positions. Telephone interviews on both of them and made it to 1:1 interview for one but not the other. Was basically asked the exact same questions for the 1:1 as the phone interview. Made no sense to me to ask the same basic questions (Name a time when you were faced with multiple priorities and how did you resolve it? etc...). Then I would be asked a very similar question which I could have used the exact same answer/example as the previous answer. Their questions were kinda strange if you ask me. I used to own my own business and have done a couple hundred interviews and I wasn't expecting these questions from Wells. Which is why maybe I haven't got a response back from them yet...

Interview Questions

  • Name a specific time when you were faced with multiple priorities and how did you resolve that? What was the outcome?   Answer Question
  • Name a time when you had a very critical deadline approaching and how did you handle it? What was the outcome?   Answer Question
