      I worked at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Health insurance benefits were great, this is a great starting job if you are a college student and if banking is new to you. They have an excellent training program for bankers and tellers. There system for processing transactions, payments, is far advanced compare to most banks and credit unions. My managers on the teller side were great.

      Cons

      The branch manager changed every 2-3 years, high employee turn over rate, the sales expectation went up when I first started working there just to hit minimum in quarter back in 2006 was 40 then over the years they changed it to 180.!!!When it comes to sales they are very aggressive. I worked my heart and soul into this company and stayed stuck at the same position for 8 and half year. They don't give opportunity...

      Current Employee - Phone Banker High Value in Sacramento, CA
      Recommends

      I have been working at Wells Fargo for more than 2 years

      Pros

      You get good amount of PTO along with floating holidays and personal days. They encourage volunteering so you get 16 hours to volunteer where ever you would like.

      Cons

      Stuck on then phone all day and that can be very stressful. Favorites seem to get time off phones and they are more likely chosen for promotions.

      Advice to Management

      Provide more time for development training.

      I have been working at Wells Fargo part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      good pay. good benefits. health, dental, vision and 401k. free coffee

      Cons

      managers constantly over your shoulder giving you a list of things to improve on must meet a quota for signing up customers quarterly cannot use your own words or actions. must conform to company's robotic ways. tons of material to learn customers are rude most of the time company wants staff and customers for life

      Advice to Management

      too much pressure is put on new tellers. stop micro managing employees. allow more freedom and allow tellers to have their own words and personality. Stop forcing employees to sign customers up for services. let tellers learn at their own pace. stop trying to keep people there for life.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Pretty cool co-workers. I made several friendships.

      Cons

      Abusive customers. As a phone rep, you are powerless to control the call volume or waiting time of the customer, and they take out their frustration on you.

      Advice to Management

      Be more supportive and understanding. Stop with the patronizing awards. Just be human and try your best to care.

      Cons

      Micromanagement, Schedules, Staffing, Disorganized, Dysfunctional

      Advice to Management

      People work better when they are not micromanaged and when you are hiring people for a specific job hire the most qualified, if you don't and you hire people you know and people who are you friends you are not being fair in terms of diversity and inclusion. When people can't do their jobs do the rest of the branch a favor and remove them from the organization as it puts extra workload on those that are do a lot for the...
