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...
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Wells Fargo in February 2010.
Interview Details – Initial interview with agency recruiter. Then forwarded my resume to the company directly. They set up an interview with 2 managers at the same time. They asked the worst questions that nobody wants to have answer (ex: Tell me about a time when you had to persuade a person or a group of subordinates/peers that your solution to a situation was the best solution).
Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you had to research a problem and present solutions. What was the problem, How did you go about researching the problem, and what was the ultimate outcome? (Even the manager felt bad about asking this question. She said "I know this is a wierd question and you can take as much time as you need.... Trust me, you won't be penalized for silence.") Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Not a lot of negotiation. They offered me a job at a lower level than I was qualified for, but Underwriting jobs are few and far between and beggars can't be choosers. Was able to negotiate a slightly higher hourly rate than was offered, but there are no benefits to speak of since I am working through a staffing agency. There is the prospect of being hired permanently with the company in the future.
