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

    Pros

    Casual dress code, holiday pay, you will have 2 screens to work with at your desk, the headset is very comfortable, you get a 45 minute lunch break

    Cons

    Phone calls need to be between 6 to 7 minutes even if the customer wants you to pay all of their bills, you have to get a language line so that someone can translate to the customer for 45 minutes, managers listen to you as you are in the phone and make conversations with you, expecting you to hear then and the customer at the same time,, you may get a hearing impaired customer that needs a translator to help with username and password, then the customer can’t get to a higher level of authentication because their cell phone is not eligible to receive an advanced acess code. Then you do a tech case to make the phone number Eligible. This can take 3 to 7 business days. Then you have to escalate the call to a supervisor. The supervisor may be already assisting another team member. Therefore, the seconds which turn in to minutes are adding up on your call. Then you may get a “ Performance Improvement Plan” If your Air Handle Time is too high. Keep in mind, the CEO wants you to build trust and put the customer first. However, managers, supervisors and site leaders all want to get their Quarterly bonus. If you keep them from getting their Quarterly bonus, you will get to become a customer instead of an employee.

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

    Pros

    Helps build good skill set for future career options.
    Benefits are pretty decent (matching 6% 401K, health insurance, decent amount of PTO, etc.)
    Some growth opportunities provided.

    Cons

    Low pay considering Personal Bankers make at least $2 extra hourly and you are basically performing the same tasks. Not worth being a CSSR. More work for less money. They take advantage of the fact that you can multi-task (run a drawer and open/service bank accounts). An excuse for WF to pay you less.

    Advice to Management

    It really depends on how lucky you get with management. Some are willing to work harder than others. Varies by branch.
