    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (San Francisco, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The day started with a one-hour writing exam that was a case study. And then a rotation of four interviews either one on one or panel type. The questions were mostly behavior based with some technical (accounting) questions. The questions are a regurgitation of what is already posted on this site. Really go over the basics of accounting.

    Interview

    Interviewed at a site-specific office. 5 30-minute interviews, one case study (provided basic financial info and asked for your opinion on their creditworthiness), and lunch. Interview questions were all standard behavioral, only a few technicals. I enjoyed talking to all the people I interviewed with. Haven't made a decision yet.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview

    Applied online, and got an email asking to set up a time for a phone interview.
    One week later, I got a phone call saying that I passed their phone interview, but must do their writing assignment. Finished their writing assignment in one day.
    Two days later, I was invited for their final round
    Three weeks later, final round at their regional office.
    Two weeks later, rejected.
    For those of you who are anxious about getting an offer from Wells Fargo, expect something within a day or two from them. If not, you aren't moving on. Don't read any other forums or yahoo answers asking when you will be getting an offer. Wells Fargo will notify you right away if you are wanted. If they don't want you, they will just take their time anywhere from 2 weeks to a month to send you a "thank you for your time" email.
