    Part Time Teller Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Redwood City, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Redwood City, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First applied online & then went through an online assessment after by an outside company. Passed that & was offered an appointment to go through to a group interview in a town miles away from where I lived.
    After the group interview I was contacted about 2 weeks later & offered a one on one interview at a store location.. A few days after that interview I was contacted & offered the job upon a successful background check.. That background check took an additional 2 months to complete:/ it came back clear & they wanted to start me training straight away.
    By that time I had moved out of the district in witch I applied.. There were job openings for the same position I was already cleared & approved for in my new area.. After asking if I could be placed in one of those stores, was informed that I'd have to go through the whole process again.. :'(

    SharePoint Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (San Francisco, CA) in February 2009.

    Interview

    It was slow. I got responses from the various levels of interviewers very slowly. I had to inquire with them many times. The technical interview went fine and then i got interview with the Director. It was totally not i would expect. It hypothetical situations, role play...for which i was not prepared (not in the mind set to do a role play with the Director i haven't met yet and give authentic replies that i will probably if i am working there.) I don't know if it a productive way to interview. I didn't go well and i was not offered the job...

    IOS Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in South San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (South San Francisco, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    A technical interview by two tech leads and later, a personality interview by the director.

    Wells Fargo indicated that I had passed all interviews and needed just one more short "getting to know you" interview with upper management. That person never participated in the phone call. Rather, they ambushed me with yet another 45-minute technical and personality interview and asked me to defend the one negative comment on me they managed to dig up.

    The next day, they told the recruiter that they no longer had the budget for the position.

    Financial Analyst Program Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (San Francisco, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The day started with a one-hour writing exam that was a case study. And then a rotation of four interviews either one on one or panel type. The questions were mostly behavior based with some technical (accounting) questions. The questions are a regurgitation of what is already posted on this site. Really go over the basics of accounting.
