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

    Pros

    The culture here is phenomenal. The message is all about how the people make the difference and the company is very focused on developing employees.

    The routines set in place to reinforce the behaviors are phenomenal. Resources available to leaders for improving coaching style are endless! They have even taken external leadership theories and incorporated those into the resources and training available.

    Highly engaged and talented people work here, making it a great place to network and grow.

    Cons

    Some systems are a bit antiquated, but to be honest I’d prefer that over flashy stuff that glitches out all the time.

    Time off is not very competitive, and it doesn’t increase with positions that have more responsibility, it only increases with years worked at the company.

    No fully comprehensive health plan, but they do offer a company funded HSA with one of the plans.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2018.

    Interview

    Applied for the position about a month ago. Received a phone call from a recruiter to go over the position. Lots of situational questions. Customer service based. About a week later I received a phone call from the hiring manager to schedule a 1:1 interview. The questions were purely about building rapport with the client and how I use that rapport to influence a customer. The second interview was with the DM and the Affluent segment leader. More situational based questions as well as going over their expectations of the position.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time you had to influence a client's decision?   Answer Question
    • Name a time when you had to make an individual goal. What was it and how did you go about accomplishing it.   1 Answer
    • Why do you want to work with Wells Fargo?   Answer Question
    • Not a question...but when asked about the way I influenced a clients decision, instead of simply stating how I would do it, I role played on the spot with the hiring manager. He was very impressed.   Answer Question
