    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (San Francisco, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Initial 10 minute interview with a recruiter to see what your interests and strengths are. After that did a final interview over the phone with 3 managers for 30 minutes. Basic questions just trying to see what your interested in and what programming languages you have used. After that they give you a description of the things that you will be working on. A lot of their entry level positions are project based work so you will get a lot of behavioral style questions. The recruiter does provide a packet to study prior to final interview.

    Teller Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Redwood City, CA).

    Interview

    First you have a phone screen, then you get sent to a group interview. After that is when they send you to branches that would be in or near your preferred area to meet with the managers. Once you get selected from a branch you go back to the group for orientation. Process can be very smooth but it depends on the recruiter, i personally had to follow up with my recruiter due to the fact he was sending me to branches way out of my area specified.

    Interview Questions

    • Majority of the questions were situational, like tell me a time when you had an issue with another employee and how did you resolve that. Tell me a time when you went above and beyond for a customer.   Answer Question

    2 phone interviews, 2 in person interviews.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    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
