    Teller Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Marysville, WA
    Anonymous Employee in Marysville, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Wells Fargo in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    I first applied online and received an email with an 800 number to call. Over the phone I was given a brief interview and was told to wait for an email to see when the next group interview would be. A few days later, I got that email, called them back, and was given a date to head over to the branch. There were 8 people total in my group. We were asked to fill out a candidate profile which consisted of our names, why we wanted to work at Wells Fargo, our last 2 jobs, 5 transferable skills, which location we wanted to work in, our availability, and our expected salary. We then went around the room reading some of the things we'd written. We were asked a couple of questions regarding excellent customer service and our greatest achievement. Then the recruiter talked about the position for a little while, gave us the lowdown on the benefits, and asked if we had any questions. The second interview was with three managers from the branch I had applied to originally. The questions were a bit more intensive, but it was overall a very pleasant interviewing experience. I'm waiting on a call back!

    Teller Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bellevue, WA
    Anonymous Employee in Bellevue, WA
    Application Details

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Wells Fargo in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a Teller position at Wells Fargo
    I was called by a company representative and was given several general questions, after that I was scheduled for a group interview.
    I attended the group interview. There where 12 people, most of them over 30 years with extensive Teller experience. I was surprised to see them because it is a position where the salary is about 11$/h. I hadn't any teller experience so I was clearly in a disadvantaged position. There completed a small application form and then the moderator gave several questions and all off the people in the room answered the same question.
    Unfortunately I wasn't selected for the job

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Wells Fargo in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Was pretty smooth until the Group Interview. I think I gave my best shot. One recruiter manning the whole show. We were 8 people. Varied backgrounds. She asked 3 questions and we took turns to answer those. 1. Why Wells Faro, why teller and how do you professionally see yourself doing this job
    2. Tell me about your 3 "carry-on" skills that will add value to the position of a Teller
    3. STAR Format question - Tell me about a time when you faced a challenge, over came it, what was your leanring and what was the outcome
    THe interview lasted for 2 hours. Started at 10:10 am and ended at 12:15 pm. Was exhausting but enjoyed the whole time I was in there. They decided to consider more suitable people for the role and have asked me try applying again 6 months later!
