    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Bothell, WA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    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

    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.

    Personal Banker I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Seattle, WA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The online application was followed by an email notifying me that I had been selected for a phone interview. The 20 minute phone interview with my Recruiter was pleasant and light-hearted -- it seemed like she was just trying to verify some of my application information and learn more about me on a personal level. She arranged an in-person interview with the Branch Manager of the location to which I was applying.

    The interview with the Branch Manager lasted about 45 minutes and was much more in-depth than the phone interview -- overall a great experience. I understand that it can vary in intensity depending on the type of manager that you interview with.

    The final interview was arranged with the District Manager, which is meant to simply OK the Branch Manager's decision. In other words, if you get an interview with the District Manager, it's because the Branch Manager has selected you for the job.

    I received a call from the Recruiter with a job offer, and a subsequent email formalizing the offer.

    Collector III Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kent, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Kent, WA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Very friendly and knowledgeable hiring managers painted a very accurate picture of the type of work I would be expected to do. I got the impression that the panel managers who sat for my interview were supportive and strong leaders.

    STUDY FOR YOUR INTERVIEW. Treat it like a test in college. Look online for information pertaining to the position you are applying for. Be prepared to sit with a panel of managers who have their questions already lined out for you so be prepared with your answers. I prepared for two days. Glassdoor helped out a lot. The interview questions I was asked were all listed here. I hand picked a few, developed a good response and remained prepared to think on the fly when my interview time came. Take it seriously, make eye contact and don't bring up this press news stuff unless it will pertain to your job. The department in which I will be working has nothing to do with the banking side. I stayed away from asking the hiring managers about the issues the company is facing. I suggest the same for anyone interviewing.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time where you had to overcome a change that a former employer made and how did I adapt to the change.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was offered a very generous pay rate. No negotiations were necessary.
