    Home Mortgage Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Vancouver, WA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    After applying, I had three interviews. One on the phone and two in person.

    Phone interview went well - young lady on the phone was pleasant enough to talk with and gave me the impression I would enjoy working at Wells Fargo.

    First in-person interview went alright. The gentleman I spoke with seemed professional enough and we seemed to get along great. I really felt like I nailed the interview and left the building looking around at the environment preparing myself for seeing everything here every day.

    Second interview did not go well. I caught the flu or some other kind of bug and the interviewer knew this ahead of time but was fine with me going in. The cold took a serious toll on me and I believe the interviewer held it personally against me as she did not seem at all impressed with me (despite the fact that the two previous interviewers thought otherwise - and knowing that I was sick ahead of time).

    She also seemed to forget which interviewee I was because she thought I was someone else at the beginning of the interview referencing things said in a conversation we never had. She also then seemed to look surprised when - near the end of the interview - I apologized for taking a moment to answer a question because "this head cold [was] really making it hard to think".

    After the interview she told me I should expect to hear something back within a week or two.

    I never heard anything back - not even a generic letter thanking me for my time (over 4 hours between applying and interviewing 3 times - not including commuting etc.).

    Would not apply again.

    Interview Questions

    • Generic boilerplate questions like "describe a time when you had to come up with a solution to a difficult problem".   1 Answer

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Mount Vernon, WA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online, I was chosen for an interview and was sent an email asking me to attend an interview at the local branch. It was quite odd. You walk into a room and sit at a table with 8 other people all interviewing at the same time. She would ask a question and then each person would have to answer the questions, Very awkward and intimidating.

    This was a one on one interview with the branch manager for almost an hour at the branch location. They ask you a lot of questions to make sure you are personable and can sell. One of the stand out questions was "sell me this phone". Very Wolf of Wall Street.

    Teller Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Everett, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Everett, WA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    My scheduled phone interview was a 20 minute time block. The interviewer was late to call and rushed through talking to me. So instead of a 20 minute time slot to talk about my work history and skill set, I got 5 minutes. I felt rushed to say the least. I found it very unprofessional that the interviewer used a speaker phone to talk to me. Everything she said echoed and often cut out. I felt rushed, not the ideal phone interview at all.
