    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, I was chosen for an interview and was sent an email asking me to attend an interview at the local branch. It was quite odd. You walk into a room and sit at a table with 8 other people all interviewing at the same time. She would ask a question and then each person would have to answer the questions, Very awkward and intimidating.

    Senior Banker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 months - interviewed at Wells Fargo in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    There were many hours of interviews, with as many as seven different people from various locations throughout the country, on several occasions. Process was long, not terribly well organized, and disjointed. Given the merger with Wachovia, not certain the internal politics and/or culture had yet been decided upon. No group consensus reached. Therefore, hiring for this position remains at a standstill after 8 months despite promises and assurances otherwise.

    Credit Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Had a 30 minute phone interview after applying online. The top 10 candidates were called out of a few hundred applicants. They were trying to fill the position as soon as possible. It was a very professional phone interview and they asked detailed questions. I would say that if I was doing it all over again that I would have tried to prepare for the technical questions more.

    Credit Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Puyallup, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Puyallup, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    I met the district manager at a career fair in Seattle. I then talked to him several times on the phone and through email about Wells Fargo Financial and he answered all of my questions. He then set up an interview for me with a branch manager at one of the branches.

    The interview itself was 1 on 1 and semi-casual. It honestly took about 2 hours but I did ask a lot of questions about the company. The branch manager let me talk to one of the credit managers at the branch and I talked to her for about 15 minutes. She was very informative about the position.

    The office looked nice. There weren't any real offices, but everyone had their own desks and work-spaces.

    It did seem like I was talking to someone who worked in sales. At times he seemed distracted and liked to interrupt. He would often ask the same question two or three times in different wording which made my job difficult for fear that I was repeating the same answers over and over. All in all, it wasn't a bad experience, but it wasn't an experience that left me wanting to work there.
