    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.

    Interview Questions

    Negative Experience
    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe the three different financial statements to someone who doesn't have a finance or accounting background.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Wells Fargo in January 2017.

    Interview

    Standard phone screen, then the head of the office called to answer any questions I had about the office. Wells Fargo flew me out in early January to interview for the Financial Analyst position. Though the interview itself was pleasant and quite standard, I had a huge difficulty with HR booking my hotel and my refund. They actually ended up charging me for the hotel, which is ridiculous. Honestly, I wish I hadn't even accepted the interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Really long process for full-time position. Had 7+ phone calls, standard technical questions and why this group, why banking, really have your story down. Super day in New York, about 5 more interviews with 10 other people. In the end they wanted someone with previous banking experience.

    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.
