    Allows enhancement of valuable skills, but sales tactics are wrong

    Customer Service and Sales Representative (Former Employee) Irvine, CA

    ProsWells fargo offers a competitive industry salary with bonus potential
    Looks good on a resume if you are able to stay for a while
    Will develop valuable sales and customer service skills

    ConsSales expectations are unrealistic and aggressive. Customer's come in wanting to cash a check and you are supposed to open them a "vacation savings account" so your branch can hit its goals
    Daily sales goals are to be met and you are checked in on 2-3 times a day to see where you are
    They want to you me an ATM machine that sells. You literally have at least 5 "value phrases" to say to customer each time they sit down, or you can be disciplined

    Advice to Senior ManagementGenerating business is crucial to a profitable company, that's obvious, but treat your employes with a little more respect. Also, the way you want to bring in the business seems like a scam for the customer.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Honestly, a great place to work!

    Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) Burbank, CA

    Prospromotions, money is okay if you're young and don't have a lot of responsibilities.

    Consculture, it really depends on the district you're with and there are way way too many gray areas when it comes to management, favoritism etc.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou put way too much effort and money into hiring and training amazing professionals who will ABSOLUTELY rock at any other bank, stop losing these professionals to other companies because of higher pay and better treatment.

    Shady

    Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsGood pay, good benefits, and you can move up within the company pretty fast as long as you do the "shady" stuff they want you to do.

    ConsThe shady stuff.. Overworking employees when it comes to sales. Sales goals are ridiculous! They will tell you to open customers X amount of accounts for customers they truly do not need. There's soooo many cons about this shady company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop treating employees like slaves, you don't have to make them do all that shady stuff for just some BS recognition. Lower sales goals, treat employees right. And understand that it's not about quantity more so about quality.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
