    Working at Wells Fargo was a great experience.

    Loan Processor (Former Employee) Charlotte, NC (US)

    ProsI enjoyed the diversity, the different business, such as healthcare, personal care ,food court. Every thing you need was there.

    ConsThe compensation for me was a challenge, since I was hired on a low pay scale, but it didn't interfere with my performance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo be fair with each employee, and since we all are adults, treat each other with respect.

    Dependant on your location and manager

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat growth opportunity, hire and promote from within.

    ConsAggressive sales environment
    Pressure from management
    Self sourcing required in some areas, but not in others.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI am fortunate enough to be at a busy store so we can rely on walk-ins and inbound calls to meet our sales goals, but other stores in the district see a fourth of what we do, yet their sales goals are the same. I think that is very unfair and is the cause of such high turnover. Use common sense and adjust the goals to compensate for store traffic.
