Teller Interview

Teller

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in July 2012.

Interview Details I applied online for a teller position. I received a call a couple of days later in which they asked me about my desired city of employment and instructed me that I would be receiving another call detailing the information of a group interview I would need to attend. The group interview included about 12 other candidates for the position and took place in a round table conference room in a business building. This included all of the basic questions you would expect at an interview, nothing really surprised me. Once I made it past this interview, I received a call from a manager at a local branch for an interview with him and the assistant manager. I unfortunately did not get offered a job after this interview. A week after I found out I wouldn't be offered a job at that location I received a call from another local branch with a request for an interview. Much like before, I interviewed with the branch manager and assistant manager. At the end of this interview they offered me the job.

Loan Document Specialist Interview

Loan Document Specialist

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in July 2014.

Interview Details I started my process on CareerBuilder.com. I submitted my resume for the position online. A Wells Fargo recruiter sent me an email back within 3 days to schedule a phone interview. I pretty much said I was available anytime during the normal business day and they scheduled me for the next day at 11:30am. That was fine by me.

Phone Screen:
11:30am - Recruiter called me as promised, and we went over my resume with a fine tooth comb and had me give my idea of what the position entails. I did so and they liked my answers as I have had 4+ years of the very same experience and knew how to answer those questions. From there the recruiter asked me other questions regarding my MS Office skills, Word, Excel, and Outlook mostly. I have worked with a couple of the MS office suites. They do look different. I have been using MS Office 2003 at home and MS Office 2007 or 2010 at work. I must say I do like the ribbon at the top. Anyways, after that came the good part. "How much is your salary requirement?" I actually low-balled myself. LOL! I just wanted to "get a job" and I was throwing myself under the bus. I figure that if other people ask for too much they will be disqualified. If I ask for a low offer I should be able to get the job fast. I told the recruiter what my "range" of pay was and they said flat out to me "oh they pay more than that" and I was like okay. So I told them what my highest would be and they noted that into the account.

Got a call a week later from the Hiring Managers Assistant and scheduled the interview a few days later on a Wednesday in the afternoon.

Wednesday Interview:
I was interviewed by two nice ladies for the position. One was the actual manager I would be working for and the other was somebody on the team who knows the systems/job duties/everything about the job pretty much inside and out. The interview was mostly 8 behavior questions which I wrote down as much as I can without stalling the interview process. "What kind of process did you develop, and how did it help out? "What were some of your challenges in the past?" "How do you deal with Adaptability / Change in the workplace?" "How do you re-prioritize your work?" Things of that nature. Every question has about 3-5 sub questions like challenges, importance, outcome of the changes. After the 8 questions and their sub parts were over they asked me about some of my skills of my previous jobs doing the same thing there. Went over that info. Asked me if I can work Overtime. "Yes." I said. Of course with a big grin on my face. I currently do not get OT at my place of employment, so that made me pretty happy there. After that is was mostly chit chat about work things going back and forth about the joys of the job as they could tell I had a lot of experience in explaining in detail what I do on a daily basis. After that Hiring Manager said "that is all the questions I have for now." The other said the same. I had asked a couple follow up questions such as "where do we go from here, and when can I expect a response back either way about the position." They replied that the recruiter will get back with me if selected. I said "Thanks!" and was on my merry way out the door.

Interview Question – None for me really. Just have to think of 8 scenarios about past experiences that fit the question without dodging the question entirely.   Answer Question
