    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Sunnyvale, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    After I submitted my application, I got an invite to take a Prescreen / Questionnaire. After this, I was told to schedule a self-scheduled phone interview. After that, the recruiter told me she would recommend me to the branch manager for an in person interview. Two days later, the branch manager of the store that I applied for reached out to me asking to schedule an in-person interview. It was a panel interview that lasted for about 20-25 minutes.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (San Jose, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, passed the screening and then set up a group interview online! The group consisted of myself, 4 others, and the recruiter. It was more informational than anything, with 3/4 interview questions. Because I couldn't start until the first of July I didn't receive an immediate call back/email, but I reached out to the recruiter who told me she was interested in following up with a second interview closer to when I can start. I just had my second interview yesterday, and it was suppose to be a panel, but turned out to be just myself and the service manager. I'm confident that I'll be getting a call from my recruiter with an offer!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (San Jose, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied to about 6 different locations online, first got a rejection email then got another email about a week later stating to sign up for an interview time. My interview was from 10:30-12 at the regional headquarters nearest me; the email said to wear business professional which for women is slacks and a blazer with a blouse. In my group interview there were only 5 people including myself so it was very small and not as threatening as a larger group would've. They asked us to come to the back and to sit in the conference room. There were papers at half the seats and they asked us to sit at the spots with papers. We then filled out a survey with basic questions that were on the application. They left the room to finish the surveys and came back a few minutes later. There was a district manager along with a manager from one of the local stores there, the district manager went through a power point slide with the visions and values along with basic info such as days they're open and how long the training is (2 weeks of full time training you must do), then went on to 3 basic questions and went around the table to answer them one by one. Then after we were done with the questions she finished the power point slide and the interview was over. She told us we would be contacted within the next two weeks. I got a call less than a day later for my second interview which is for tomorrow, with the same attire but at the local branch they wanted me to work at.
