    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview

    Not bad. First round was on campus and that was the most challenging round. A mix of technical questions and behavioral. The second round was just getting to know members of the office.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wells Fargo.

    Interview

    Applied online and several weeks later, I received an email from HR and the Hiring Manager for phone interviews. HR will ask 3 behavioral questions, why the program, and if you have any prior examples of analysis abilities. Questions you're asked will differ from what you see on this site, but may see 1 or 2 of them.

    Interview Questions

    • 1) Time when the scope of a project changed halfway what you did as a result

      2) Time you made a minor error on an assignment and what you did to correct it

      3) Time you missed a deadline and why.   1 Answer

    Financial Analyst Program Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    My experience interviewing with Wells Fargo was extremely disappointing. I applied online in July and received an email in September informing me that I had been selected for a first round phone interview. The interview went really well and the manager that interviewed me said that I would be moving on to the next round. He said that someone from HR would be reaching out to me during the next week to schedule the next round of interviews. Two weeks later I received an email saying that I was selected for a final round interview and that a member of the recruiting team would be getting in touch with me soon. Two more weeks went by and I received an automated rejection email. I emailed the HR rep and she said I was still being considered for the position. When I asked when the final round interview would be, I was told that no updates would be available for at least another week.

    Their recruiting process is clearly not organized well and takes far too much time to complete. It's just unreasonable to be keep candidates waiting 4 months between the time they applied and the final round interview. This is a great way to lose qualified candidates, especially when recruiting for finance positions happens so early in the fall.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Wells Fargo.

    On-campus recruiting. Submitted my resume online. Got first round. Easy questions. I believe I did not get invited to a Superday because I lacked prior finance experience. Pretty personable interviewer though.

    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.
