    I applied online. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Charlotte, NC) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview was pretty basic. The recruiter ask you to tell them about yourself and give a little background on our job experience through your resume. It was a pretty easy phone interview. The recruiter told me that if everything goes well, then somebody from the Financial Crime Specialist department would give me a call within the next couple days. I got a call back on the same day after my phone interview and was asked to come in for an interview with 2 supervisors. The interview went well. They told me that by the end of the week I would hear something back. It's been a week and haven't heard anything yet.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo in October 2017.

    Interview

    Received a phone call from the corporate Recruiter within two weeks of my initial submission . Job duties worded differently than what they're seeking in an candidate to which is misleading. My background is similar to the role their recruiting however the "Recruiter" indicated they were seeking someone different which blew me away.. that let me know right there they need to revamp their JD for this role. In all honesty, Recruiter was pleasant but again when you're dealing with a corporate recruiter emails to them go unanswered.
