    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Wells Fargo in October 2014.

    Interview

    2 on 1 phone interview screen, basic finance questions. Two-day superday with 6-7 back to back interviews, few hard questions, but nothing impossible. Follow-ups can be difficult, offers come a couple days after. Know DCF's, valuation methods, basic accounting, why wells fargo/why investment banking, pretty much everything you would expect.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Charlotte, NC (US)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I go to a non-core school for Wells so interviews came as a result of an alumni referral. First round was a 15 min phone interview with an associate and director in Charlotte. They were very friendly and pretty light on technicals. More focused on leadership and gauging actual interest. Superday was a couple of weeks later in NC and consisted of 7 back-to-back 30 min interviews with individuals from all levels and across many groups. Pretty even breakout of behavioral vs technical. Culture is very important at Wells and was thus certainly a major factor. People were very friendly and encouraging which made it a pleasant experience as far as interviews go.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty standard. Walk me through a DCF. How do you calculate FCF? Walk me through the three financial statements.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Charlotte, NC (US)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Anally networked with a ton of bankers at the firm and won their hearts to get a superday. And at superday won everyone's heart to get the summer internship offer. Wells based on all the interviews I have had has an extremely dynamic assessment process. Instead of meeting 2-4 people, you go to 8 booths at a hotel in Charlotte, NC where you get asked all fit and technical question.
