    Teller Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online for a teller position they had at 2039 Broadway. I instantly received an email. I was scheduled for a group interview in a week. After the group interview I received a call from the recruiter for a one to one interview with the service and branch manager. The whole process was disappointing. I spent time just to receive an email at the end that I was not selected. I had job experience and I thought the interview went fine. Unfortunately, they were not considerate enough to give a reasonable explanation to why I was not selected for a part time teller position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The Interview process was very different. The first interview was a group interview. I was in a room with five other people and the HR rep. The questions were fairly easy to answer, but it was very important to SHINE and not be quiet. The second interview was with the service manager and store manager. The interview was STAR based.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Got a call to schedule a phone interview more than a month after I applied. The rest of the process was quick. The phone interview was pretty basic. I was asked about my job experience, why I wanted to work for Wells Fargo, etc. Scheduled a face-to-face interview at the end of the phone interview. I was emailed information about the role and how the interview would be structured to prepare myself in addition to driving instructions.

    The face-to-face interview conducted of two separate STAR "behavioral" interviews with some of the supervisors. They were pretty quiet but didn't feel intimidating to me. The questions revolved around my experiences with customer service and there were a handful of questions thrown in about my knowledge of fraud and how I'd tell a customer to handle those types of situations.

    I got a call about 3 or 4 hours later with the offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time when a supervisor wasn't 100% clear about something and how you handled it.   Answer Question
    • Describe a time when you dealt with a difficult customer.   Answer Question

    Part Time Teller Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I am writing this for those who failed Wells Fargo interview (Part time teller). I applied online and I received an email telling me I could set up a group interview. I was very confident because I had a couple of years of selling and customer service. When I left my previous job, many customers in town were sad because I did a very good job and everyone liked me. I knew a lot of people complained that working in Wells Fargo is terrible because the sales pressure is very high. But I chose to work for it because I wanted to sell as many products as possible and became an asset for the company. But I was wrong. In the interview, I told the recruiter my marketing skills, and how I made my previous customers super like me, and I have many years' of experience of calming down a customer or selling products. In the interview, I felt great because obviously I have more experience than any other interviewees. However, I was told that they would not take me in consideration. I was so sad that night. But next morning, I interviewed with another company. The company manager was so shocked about my selling skills and customer service. I told them how I do marketing survey and research on product features. They offered me a full time job in a global marketing representative position with much more higher pay. On the way back home when I was driving, I was just thinking, Wells Fargo???..... So, never be disappointed with yourself. Wells Fargo is not the only company in the world and their recruiter may not know your potential. They don't know you are a loyal employee, a super hard working person and a young profession who wants to dedicate the whole life for them. Someone else will see your shinning point. If you are good, sooner or later you will find your company and you can go much further than working in Wells Fargo. Be strong and keep going!
