Had a pre-interview reception the night before. Interview was mostly just fit questions. Walk me through your resume, etc. They were really bad about getting back to me about decisions. They actually haven't yet, I only know because I have a friend there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Wells Fargo in January 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted via e-mail about two weeks after applying online to set up a first round interview. Was contacted by phone by a woman who asked me to run through my resume, a few questions on my experiences and then a technical question. I was told I would hear back from them in 1-2 weeks, about 2 weeks afterwards I received an e-mail asking me to fill out department/location preferences. Didn't hear anything for a while so I followed up via e-mail with my original interviewer which was never returned, never heard anything back.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview

    On campus interview - what do you think the role entails? Why financial analyst and not investment banking? The interviewer was kind, but tried to be intimidating. Just know what the role is and know basic accounting questions and you will do fine. Financial analyst role I applied for was pretty much a credit analyst position.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (New Orleans, LA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied for on campus interview. The questions were straight from HR and pretty straight forward. Interviewer would ask the questions and then write down my response. Questions were standard to financial interviews. They were not looking for long answers as this was just the preliminary screening interview. I received an email about 8 weeks later that I had made it to the second round. This entailed another 1 on 1 interview on campus.

    Interview Questions

    • What are the three major financial statements? How do they connect to each other?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    not bad. took a little longer than expected and they take a little longer than usual to get back to you but overall not bad. people were relatively nice and the questions weren't to difficult but I would expect a lot harder for a middle market banking position. Some of the interviewers came off as a little snobby but nothing to really worry about. probably tired after a long day of listening to people talk about why they love finance so much
