    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (San Francisco, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty good experience! First interview was completely behavioral and it was over the phone, around 30 minutes long --standard. The second also had a good amount of behavioral but did contain a couple of technical questions. The in-person interview had two people asking questions, and the interviews were quick and to the point. Heavy focus on why Wells Fargo and why this particular line of business
