    I have been working at Wells Fargo part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. For the most part, very collaborative. Flexible hours for tellers/lead tellers. Great growth opportunity if you want to stay with the company! I made a lot of good friends while working at Wells Fargo and also learned to handle my finances.

    The company does provide great tools for those who want to grow and succeed with them.

    Cons

    VERY VERY UNETHICAL BANKERS. They will do whatever to close the sale. Why would an 80 year old who barely speaks any English be sold on a Credit Card!? The managers usually pretend to not see these thins and allow for unethical practices.

    The sales pressure is horrible. The managers will make you (at least they did while I was there) bring in accounts from your friends and family quite often.

    There is a lot of office romance, drama, and "high-school" issues going around (i worked in multiple branches) . Do not be surprised if an Assistant manager is trying to sleep with a teller that is 5+ years younger or if 2 bankers are hooking up when they are both married.

    Advice to Management

    Too many to list.

    I worked at Wells Fargo part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company with great benefits
    Corporate expressed great values and morals during the training process

    Cons

    Teller position is surprisingly demanding despite the low salary
    Many of my co workers quit which turned my 25 hours per week into 50 hours per week
    Sales quotas WAY TOO DEMANDING

    Advice to Management

    Increase the teller salaries!

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

    Pros

    1. I get paid holodays.
    2. I get PTO as a part time employee.
    3. My branch is family.
    4. I get to eat dum dum lollipops all day.
    5. Management doesn't choose favorites.

    Cons

    1. High pressure for sales.
    2. Who manages lead tellers coming to work on time and owning up to it?
    3. Dress code for guys isn't as casual as girls.
    4. Bonus isn't that much.
    5. Doesn't let you get a second job if you need one to pay bills... To elaborate more on this, working 25 hours as a teller simply isn't cutting it for me to pay bills. I asked if I could change my availability from 8:00-6:30 to 8:00-5:30. I was told that they could not honor it because I was hired based on the fact that I had full availability(I would understand if it weren't for the fact that people who needed to go to school could change availability, yet I need more money to support my family and I can't!?!?!?). That is what I'm TRULY disappointed about.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to make sure that EVERYONE is accountable for coming to work on time. Also, allow your employees to have the ability to get a second job if they need one!!

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company does a great job of promoting and training. They also do a great job with ensuring that you don't become too consumed with work.

    Cons

    The positions aren't too challenging and can be slightly repetitive. The company is also very sales oriented, so you are pushed to always promote products, regardless of fit.

    Advice to Management

    Lay off the sales focus just a little.

    Pros

    Enjoyable co-workers, company gatherings outside of work, room for growth.

    Cons

    Customers take aggravation out on teller, pressure to make a sale, personal bankers aggressive when trying to push you to get customer to upgrade their account.

    Advice to Management

    Put less pressure for sales on the tellers, there is enough stress to make sure the cash is balanced every time.

    Pros

    Great benefits, and this is a Team culture, if you are a people person then this is a great choice for you.

    Cons

    Many managers are promoted due to high sales and are not ready for the leadership responsibilities associated with the manager role.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your team and be very transparent; also actually care for your team and take advantage of great Lead Tellers, they are your lifeline to the teller team.
