    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (San Francisco, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process goes through a pre interview screening which lasts about 10 minutes, and if you pass that a manager will reach out to set up an in person interview which will last about an hour. If you get the job you will be contacted by the recruiter. If you get a call from a manager, that's bad.

    Interview Questions

    • Will ask questions about your past sales experience and customer service experience. How you handled difficult situations, and if you were able to turn around and make the customer happy. They are going to want to know how you work in a team setting and what you strive for as an employee.   2 Answers

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (San Francisco, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Exhaustive but professional interview process -- met 5 people over 2 separate calls/3 in-person meeting, before background checks and reference checks, which took 6 weeks end to end. All interviewers asked the exact same questions, very scripted, so they could compare all candidates 1:1. This felt very rigid and "cookie cutter", but the people on the other side of the table were all very friendly, and the questions were good, deep, probing, and challenging, to give them an idea of how I thought "on my feet". Not for lightweights!

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a difficult decision you had to make at work recently. What was the problem, what steps did you take to analyze your options... then how did you decide, what was your decision, and how did it work out?   Answer Question
