Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager
London, England

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Wells Fargo.

Interview Details Lengthy process of around 90 days with 6 rounds of interview and much procrastination, which showed a very risk-averse and over-cautious culture. This wasn't a senior job! The HR person didn't give feedback or updates for a month after all the interviews were done and I was at offer stage.

Interview Question – No difficult questions. Just a frustratingly long process and being left hanging in limbo for a month at offer stage made them look unprofessional.   Answer Question

Teller At Wells Fargo Interview

Anonymous Employee
Plano, TX (US)

I applied online and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in June 2011.

Interview Details After submitting all online application details, you need to call a number given to have you're own phone interview. They ask a lot of scenario questions, how to deal with a difficult situation? How did you go above and beyond your job duties? If you successfully pass this phone screening then you will be contacted by a recruiter via email to attend a Group Interview. At the group interview there are about 20-25 candidates, and the questions are asked to all and then everyone answers upon your turn. Usually currently hiring managers are the ones asking the questions. If any of the managers have an interest for you they can interview you on the spot, or set a second interview with you at the bank branch. At the branch interview you have the interview with the Store Manager and Service Manager. Again many situational questions.

Interview Question – Why should we hire you?   Answer Question
