Financial Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
Declined Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2012.

Interview

I had an on campus interview and then flew out to Los Angeles a few weeks later for a second round interview. I had seven interviews with different department heads that were hiring. Each interview lasted about half an hour and consisted of a mixture of behavioral and technical questions. The technical questions mostly consisted of understanding financial statements and valuation principles.

Interview Questions

The offer was great but I received an offer from another company that was more in line with the type of work I wanted to to

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Houston, TX) in October 2010.

    Interview

    First rounds were over the phone, and final rounds were in Houston (I believe this is some sort of regional HQ). First round over the phone wasn't too difficult. Standard behavioral questions, and a few technical questions about financial statements and that sort of thing.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Salt Lake City, UT) in November 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly long. I first did a pre-screening interview on the phone, then a 2:1 interview in their office. A week later, they called me for another interview. It was a little bit tiresome for the pay they were offering. The first two interviews went well compared to the last one which was more technical.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Irvine, CA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    My recruiter phoned with the opportunity, and an interview was set weeks out. Months after the interview, follow-up was performed.

    I was offered the job months following the interview.

    The ongoing merger allowed the hiring manager to practice poor communication and solely recruit and interview.

    Negotiation

    A 10% salary increase was negotiated before starting work.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Minneapolis, MN) in May 2010.

    Interview

    First I met with the employee who referred me's manager. Had lunch and got to know each other and interests. Subsequently went through four rounds of interviews before landing the job offer. Was able to skip to the "final round" for three different positions. So it was long. The people were not professional interviewers but rather your potential coworkers. They asked varied questions and most were really not related to finance or anything technical but focused on character and personality.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was repeatedly told it was non-negotiable but that is not true. Be persistent.
