    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Des Moines, IA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied January. I think the phone interview happened late February.
    Reached out after the interview and she said I did very well and I should hear within the next two weeks. Didn't hear anything for three weeks so I reached out again but was directed towards someone else, who then also said I had great notes and should wait to hear within another two weeks. Three weeks went by again with no word, so I emailed to check in - no response. Another three weeks with no response - checked in again. Never heard back. Very SLOW process. Terrible communication.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with a recruiter on Thursday October 20, 2016. I was notified by the manager for an in person interview, which took place on Wednesday November 2, 2016 with the manager and one of his team members. I was then notified by the manager on Wednesday November 9, 2016 that he had chosen another candidate. The phone interview was very informal, it lasted about 5 minutes. My in person interview was more detailed in the questions that was asked and lasted about 30 minutes. I was a little nervous going into the interview but quickly felt at ease once the interview process started. Over all even though I did not get the job it gave me interview experience that I need.

    Loan Servicing Specialist III Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (West Des Moines, IA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Have applied for several positions. Interviewed for 2. Turned down for the first. Second time I was contacted by a recruiter to see if I would be interested. Was contacted for phone interview which I think was the 1st time this person had ever done one. It was disaterous, I was dying to get done. Then I'm told that I will get recommended for a face to face. Ok.... Got an email within an hour from the hiring mgr stating my intervew was the NEXT DAY, the time, and who I would meet with. Never had that happen before. Very standard situational interview questions, only about 5 total. They don't seem to like it when you ask very direct questions, such as why is this position open, tell me about the type of people who work on the team, what are team dynamics like? I was hustled out of there as fast as possible, and told to contact the recruiter if I had any other questions. After thinking about it a couple days, I withdrew from candidacy. This also did not go over well. You have to be very, very, careful what area you apply in. Trust your gut, if it doesn't feel right stay away. There are some depts where the turn over is 100% and they literally can't keep people. Either they quit or are fired, which I figured out what was happening with the job I withrew from. I know many people who work there, and have now learned it works against you if you withdraw or don't accept a position. Also if you are offered more than 1, you can't turn down the first, and take another one. Once you accept you are in. If you withdraw and try to take a different one, you will be denied the offer for the 2nd one. And kiss good bye any chances of working there in the future.

    • Pretty standard situational questions. Pretty easy to come up with an answer that would fit the situation.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Des Moines, IA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I got a phone call from the temp agency at 9am about a position that opened that morning. I was In the interview within two hours. It was a one-on-one with the manager, and it was very simple. He was a funny individual and stepped away from the typical interview questions and talked more casually. Even though I didn't have as much phone experience as the job needed, the manager focused more on my people skills and what I could bring to the table instead of what jobs I did in the past. I got a phone call the next day that I got the job.
