    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Merritt Island, FL) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I was already a Wells Fargo Team Member and wanted to move from the Retail side to the Corporate side for a better work/life balance. I saw that there was an Administrative position open in Orlando, which was where I was located at the time, so I applied internally online. I was given a call by the Recruiter and was set up for a phone interview. Once I passed the phone interview, the in person interview was scheduled. It was a panel interview with the 3 District Managers that I would be assisting and the Area President whose market it was.

    If you are a former employee and come back to Wells Fargo, they no longer acknolwedge prior years of service. I was gone only 7 months and lost 10 years of service, which was unfortunate.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Minneapolis, MN) in June 2011.

    Interview

    For all positions first you get the phone call. They ask you about your background and just chat a bit, then the questions start. First they ask about how you handled a difficult situation and who you working with. Next question is what is your organizational style. Next how do you handle tasks. Tasks are normally things you need to get done in a set time frame or due date. They are looking for how you get things done and your efficiency level. Next they ask how you handle difficult people. They are looking for someone who will listen, come up a solution and follow through to resolve the issue. Next they'll ask how do you stay organized. Here's a good time to throw in your Calendar, Outlook, whatever buzz words you can think of. After you come thru this phone call they will set up the one-on-one meeting. This could be with the recruiter or the Manager and their team. You'll meet a bunch of people to see how you interact with the group and fit in.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo in March 2012.

    Interview

    Most interviews here start with a recruiter screen, then if they like you they will talk about the next steps in the process. They will let you know when to expect a follow-up, normally each stage of the process takes one week. One situation the phone screen to the offer letter went from July to December.The key thing is to be specific with your responses with HR. Next step usually involves interviews with team members than finally the hiring manager. Some managers have very specific ideas about what they want it's your job to figure out what that is. Sometimes the person you think you are working for doesn't need you and hired you for another lesser manager on the team. They don't do direct hires with some titles you have to work as a consultant first. It helps to have a contact that can refer you to what agency they use or can refer you to someone who can mentor your career. Apply for any position across the nation, if they like you they will let you train locally and work remotely. Pay close attention to payscale zones, what you think you salary is and what it is can be in reality varies from division to office location.
