People As Competitive Advantage

Our most important value is this: we believe in people as a competitive advantage. We strive to find the best people from a diversity of backgrounds and cultures, give them the knowledge and training they need, allow them to be responsible and accountable for their businesses, and recognize them for outstanding performance. Products and technology do not fulfill the promise behind a brand — people do, people who are more talented, more motivated, more energized than their competitors. We believe our people will out execute our competitors every time because they care more than our competitors do. While we do this, we expect to have fun, too.

This is the core of our culture. Culture means knowing what to do in the morning without having someone tell you what to do. We want to comply with not just the letter of the law but the spirit of the law. People as a competitive advantage should be that instinctive. It’s the starting point of every decision we make. When our people are in the right jobs, spending time on the right things, managed well, feeling good about their contributions, fully using their skills and learning new ones, and having fun — they’ll do it right by our customers. When they’re properly incented, rewarded, encouraged, and recognized — they’re even more satisfied with their jobs, provide better service, generate more sales, and produce even better business results. This generates more revenue — which results in greater profit — which fuels a higher stock price. 

What’s behind our approach? Enabling ordinary people to do extraordinary things. It’s the difference between a good place to work and a great one. 
Continual development

At Wells Fargo, we want every team member to be in a constant state of growth and development. Our leadership team encourages and supports team members to reach their full potential. Professional development opportunities at Wells Fargo include:
  • Education — tuition reimbursement for career-related courses
  • Goal-setting and performance education
  • Online career development tools and resources
Diverse career paths
We encourage our team members to try new jobs, support their efforts to take on new responsibilities, and celebrate their career success.

We recognize the need to take on new responsibilities over time. The size and diversity of opportunities within  Wells Fargo mean you’ll always have new challenges and opportunities.

Clearly defined career paths make it easy to see the next step in your careers. If you want to change careers entirely, you can do it — without leaving  Wells Fargo.


Recognition is a vital part of making team members feel appreciated — and we do it at every opportunity. It can range from a simple thank-you note to a formal award ceremony at the local or national level.

Recognizing both sales performance and great internal and external customer service is essential to building and retaining the best team in the industry.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than a year)


    Wells Fargo treats each and every employee as an asset by encouraging employees to continuously learn and grow both individually and as a team. I have never worked for a company that focuses so intensely on supporting its' employees through coaching, mentoring, and encouraging career development.


    The only cons involved in working for Wells Fargo involve those barriers that employees may create as a result of poor adherence to schedule, or not reaching out to ask questions when necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Most always do, but make sure to say good morning to each and every one of your team members! It really makes a difference and makes being at work feel like being home!

    Teller Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo.


    So you apply to all the job postings that you want online wellsfargo.com/careers. You have to make an account and apply for each job post individually. Then you get an email to do a screening. It's a bunch of random aptitude questions. Then you'll get a choice as to when you would like to attend a group interview. This is for your entire metropolitan area. You interview with a recruiting officer. The group interview is about 2 hours long. You have to apply for all the job postings you want online again. Then you'll get an email telling you you can come for another interview-it is either one on one or another group interview. Or you'll get one saying they chose to go a different direction. If you get the former you'll go to a group interview-at least in my case- with a hiring panel. It has the district manager, and the managers at all the stores that have openings in the area. They'll ask you questions. Then at that point they write what they like about you and send it to recruitment who then makes the final decisions. Then the recruiting officer will either call you or email you telling you if you got the job. But careful, then you have to do an online application, set up a date for a fingerprint analysis, then the background check officialpy starts which could take a while. The. After that clears it's another week or two until you go into 2 weeks of mandatory 8-5 training. All in all the hiring process is about 6-8 weeks. It's long for an entry level job.

    Tips- you don't have to be the first one to answer all of the questions but try to be the third or forth, because sometimes they'll skip to the next question for the sake of time
    Smile: look the interviewer straight in the eye and smile and make eye contact even when they're talking to the whole group.
    Dress: Dress better then you think you should. Wear a suit. For girls a blazer and work pants is perfect. They should be wrinkle free and ironed. Stick with neutral colors and minimal makeup. Girls don't ever wear bold lipstick to an interview it's just not appropriate. And no chipped nail polish. Guys- if you wear a suit don't wear a black tie- it's only appropriate for funerals and weddings. Make sure your socks don't show and your tie should match your shirt.
    Sales- what they're looking for the most is cash experience and sales experience. And people who can learn quickly and easily. Extra friendly is the key word here. They also have customer satisfaction surveys so if you're not great with customers it might not be the right fit.

    Sometimes with tellers you'll have to mark both part time and full time because they have more part time positions available- but it could lead to full time. Just be prepared that it could be part time they're offering you. I got
    A part time of 24 hours a week.
