    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  London, England
    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. 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 Questions
    • 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

    Innovation Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was overall a very pleasant one. The first step was a written evaluation. You receive a word document/form from HR and simply answer questions about your experience and background. I thought it was helpful as it gave a better idea of what they were truly looking for in teh role. The second step was a series of behavioral interviews. Unfortunately, the position was cancelled. But I did feel throughout the process I was informed of the next steps in a timely and professional manner. The company and this group is extremely focused on results but also if a candidate is a good culture fit. Ability to collaborate and build relationships are key here.

    Part Time Teller Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online to multiple listings, took "evaluation" and was cleared for initial interview each time, but received emails stating no interview times were available every time I applied, with a warning that positions fill quickly so there may not ever be an interview time available. Even if I completed the application, evaluation and went to schedule my interview within minutes, always was told no times available. Finally had a recruiter call me to see if I was still interested in interviewing and we scheduled a time for an initial phone interview/screening. Once that was completed she moved me on to schedule with the hiring manager, but that scheduling took another week and then the interview was rescheduled anyway. Finally had my interview with both the branch manager and teller coordinator.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't think there were any really unexpected questions, the recruiters send a "how to interview" document so really read that. They expect you to give examples of how you reacted and handeled specific types of situtations while at your last company. Have details ready and be comfortable.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Being a part time teller, I didn't try to negotiate. They offered more than I expected to start with at $11.50 an hour.
