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

Pros

Good benefits, company has the right idea of what it WANTS to be, get to meet lots of interesting customers, opportunity to move into management fairly quickly.

Cons

hourly wage kinda sucks for the amount of pressure put on for sales EVERYDAY, company says they want quality but they actually want quality, sales goals are unrealistic so that people do immoral things to get a bonus and a promotion, half the time those people get promoted and move on, the other half of the time people get fired at random and in bulk, youre forced to sell to family and friends and THE BIGGEST PROBLEM THAT THIS COMPANY HAS IS MANAGEMENT. The turn around rate sucks so bad because the management roles are filled by inadequate leaders with minimal experience in anything but sales, scheduling form these managers can be a nightmare as i got my schedule week to week and sometimes day by day. getting notice of a day off the day before i was supposed to have it..

Advice to Management

Please please please, pay attention to what the bankers and tellers are telling you. The stress put on store managers to hit sales goals is equally passed down to the rest of the staff in an unhealthy manner that creates a sick working environment full of highly strung out employees who arent performing to their fullest potential because lazy managers dont think they should HAVE to do any of the work because they are managers. Being Proactive instead of reactive is always being preached at WF yet somehow it seems to seep through the cracks everyday that people are not happy at work, until someone snaps and gets fired or written up. So much for proactivity when someone could have figured out what the problem was a lot sooner. That someone being a manager! This company looks at promotions based off of personal preference as opposed to performance. therefore a lot of good candidates for certain roles are overlooked because they arent BFFs with the DM.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Managers who listened and worked with you regarding changes to your schedule when it was needed. Wells Fargo provided breakfast and lunch during Power Days which really helps.

    Cons

    Way to many hours. Loan officers were not always professional. Lack of training. The mortgage industry is constantly changing and sometimes training was not received unless there was a problem.

    Advice to Management

    Good managers make the difference.


  2. "Underpaid."

    I have been working at Wells Fargo part-time

    Pros

    The best thing about working here as a teller is that they work around your schedule. So if you have school or anything come up they work around that, another good thing is the bonus checks from making sales goals. At my branch, my coworkers turned into some of my best friends so that was also a pro. But if you're on the banker side, it's pretty competitive.

    Cons

    SALES GOALS! All Wells Fargo cares about is there sales goals and if you made them. Also, the pay is low. Every other bank starts you off higher than Wells Fargo.

    Advice to Management

    Lessen up the goals, you stress out your employees more than they need to be. Wells Fargo has the highest goals in sales out of all banks, and has the least paid bankers/tellers. There's something wrong there.
