    I have been working at Wells Fargo part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pretty easy and straightforward job. Decent pay,

    Cons

    Constant pressuring sales goals, constant pressure to get a perfect feedback survey. Wells Fargo goes through so many employees, feels as if not valued. There is always someone to replace you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of sales

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    One of the best reasons for working here is name value. Wells Fargo Home Mortgage is the leader in the industry.

    Cons

    Underwriters seem under trained and extremely nit-picky. Expect to work overtime--for no pay. Management knew we were working hours over our designated time; but you couldn't list that time on your time sheet because it wasn't approved. Totally unrealistic expectations from Regional Management regarding turn time. Loans took 60 to 120 days to close. No lie.

    Training Highlight: Company flies new employees out to other states for one week training on AS400 (DOS) mortgage origination software that is antiquated and archaic. The one week is insufficient; as one wrong keystroke will derail anything you've attempted to enter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work-life balance focus should be emphasized.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    My supervisor was very upfront about the work I did and gave praise when praise was due and made corrections when needed. The benefits are good and the pay I rec'd was on the higher end.

    Cons

    I worked in the mortgage end and when things slowed down so did the work which in turn caused lay-offs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really don't have any comments to share.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Working with a great group of individuals, being able to keep the moral up while times were busy. Benefits and compensation was great.

    Cons

    Not being able to please every customer by loans being denied while I was a Loan Rep Assistant. While being a portfolio coordinator I was not able to bring all vendors on board although they were all great and providing wonderful credentials.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a Manager myself I feel that we should all listen to our associates/customers and always have respect for the individual. Be a team player.

    Former Employee - Customer Service in Westlake, TX

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    schedules pretty good, if you get a good one right off the bat, if not you can wait and get another schedule after about 90 days in the job at least.
    Nice benifits
    Work isnt too bad. Its the regular call center, back to back calls most of the time.
    they have room to advance, alot of the time they pick favorites, but for the most part its equal for all

    Cons

    micro managing
    Alot of managers just dont care about employees
    There is usually alot of gossip

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont micromanage as much, and care more about your employees, stop favoritism
