Charlotte, NC

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Wells Fargo in February 2011.

Interview Details – My interview process took 15 weeks. I had 4 phone interviews and 9 in person. They flew me to the respective city and put me up at a very nice hotel. I felt like they were trying to impress me and they did. After I received my verbal offer (which was significantly lower than the recruiter expressed) it took another 3 weeks before I received my offer letter.

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Wells Fargo in August 2008.

Interview Details – Standard application process via web. Initial contact by HR which determines possible fit and appropriate level of experience for position. Initial interview conducted by phone by mid-level manager. Upon successful interview, meet with 3-4 people both senior and colleague to determine both fit for position and answer questions regarding position - in person.

Interview Question – Need to be knowledgeable about specific division of bank as well as overall banking and current banking situation   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Wells has rather strictly defined bands so salary is to a certain extent pre-determined based upon experience level.

Vice President
Los Angeles, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in September 2009.

Interview Details – Interview was fairly standard. Applied online, recruiter contacted me, interviewed with hiring manager and other associates. The interview process consisted of: walk me through your resume, what are your career goals, why Wells Fargo, why now, walk me through why you made the decisions you made in your career, what are you least proud of in your career, why did you go to business school, what other banks or companies are you considering, if I gave you can offer today, would you accept it, what would you do if our division faced cut backs, how do you spend your personal time.

There were standard questions about accounting, finance, credit underwriting. Went through a few cases and provided feedback on how I would analyze the situation, how I would form my conclusions, and what questions I would ask to get the answers that were needed.

The people were all great, seemed very motivated, and culture is hard-working.

The interview process consisted of 3 interviews, 1 with hiring manager, 1 two down, and one group interview.

I would highly reccomend the company.
