    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Des Moines, IA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews, 15 mins and 30 mins, the first interview was with a recruiter asking about job history, specific skills and basic preliminary questions and the recruiter was great. The next interview was with two of the managers for the Collector department. They asked some more basic questions as well as a few scenario questions. After the second interview I was called 2 hours later with an offer for the position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Roanoke, VA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and a couple days later a woman called to schedule a phone interview a week after that date. The phone interview was pretty quick (10-15 mins) and the woman was nice. She asked really basic questions, nothing I had to really think about. She offered me an in person interview at the end of the call that she scheduled for a few days later. The in person interview was in STAR format which was kind of annoying, but the two women supervisors interviewing me were pretty laid back and the interview lasted probably half an hour.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo in December 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and a couple weeks later received an email to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview you have to call them. They give you the number and conference code to get through. I almost forgot this when I was waiting for them to call. It was easy- just went over my background and I guess make sure I sound competent on the phone. A week later I got a call late at night from a recruiter to set up an in person interview. A few days after that was my in person interview. It was with a manager in another department which was weird. Went over work history then did about 8 STAR type questions and then I got to ask questions about the job. That seem to go well that he went and got an actual manager from the department i would be working. She just quickly went over his notes and asked a few questions. Basically a sped up version of the prior interview. She then asked if I had any questions and I didn't have any since I asked them all with him but asked again anyways. She was a little more realistic with the position, not in a negative way but in what you will see on a day to day basis which I appreciated. It's now a couple days later and haven't heard back but hoping since it's the weekend they will call Monday.

Once you complete the face to face you may either receive a phone call or email with a job offer or decline letter.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Des Moines, IA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    The telephone interview was awesome. Very inviting and engaging. Upbeat and motivating. Positive and reassuring. The woman that called and set up the interview was the same that did the interview, and was and HR Professional.
    The personal interview was monotone, mundane, little to no emotion from the interviewer. She read from a script and wrote down my answers. She seemed as if this was an interruption to her day. The woman that did this one on one interview was a Floor Supervisor. Definitely not trained to interview. I understand this is not within her day to day role, however it should be within her wheelhouse of experience and knowledge.
