    Inbound Sales Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Des Moines, IA (US)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Des Moines, IA (US)) in October 2012.

    Interview

    It is a pretty typical process. apply on the wells.careers website and either get a communication (you can choose call or email, i always went with email). Wells Does behavioral interviews so be prepared for goofy and irrelevant questions. I have interviewed all over this company and the behavior interview is always pretty simple, but the attitude varies department to department. Some were ice cold, and some were friendly to the point of having a "buddy-buddy" feel to them.

    Be and dress professional. i would think this goes without saying, but apparently not. One interviewer told me " you wouldn't believe the crazy stuff people say in these things" after i couldn't help but chuckle at a question like "in your opinion, how many tardies and unexcused absences per month are acceptable?"

    The hardest part, really, is getting the interview in the first place. This may be unique to the markets saturated with Wells Fargo jobs (Wells is one of the largest employers in my city), but a large number of successful job seekers have an internal reference within the department.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral questions can be pretty odd. If you are applying for an entry level position and have never done a behavioral interview do some research on sample behavioral questions or you might end up feeling like an idiot.

      This is the question that baffled me, and i am no stranger to these things. This was for an entry level position:

      "Tell me about a time you lead a diversity initiative"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    This was an entry level position in a distressed job market so there was no negation to speak of.

    Inbound Sales Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Roanoke, VA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Roanoke, VA (US)) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Wear a suit or nice dress/skirt. Be professional, and be prepared to give examples of past selling styles, and achievements, even the tiniest awards that you've achieved in sales. Don't apply if you've ever been arrested of something serious and especially found guilty. It's a waste of time at that point. Fingerprint background, no drug testing, background is very extensive and takes a week and a half usually. It finds arrest records and court records guilty or not...

    Interview Questions

    • How would you sell to someone on the phone, give an example? (You can sell anything, not just WF, I did my cell phone).   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Charlotte, NC (US)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and submitted my resume. I received an email and was asked to schedule a phone interview. The recruiter was nice and asked our typical background and behavioral questions. Be prepared to answer "why wells fargo". I was invited to the onsite interview. My onsite was conducted with two managers. Be very detailed and specific in your answers. I felt that the more we talked the more comfortable the interview was and i even had them laughing quite a bit with my stories. I was told at the end that a recruiter would be in touch in one week. two days later another email arrived to consent to background and schedule fingerprinting. This is where you can start to get excited. You basically got a conditional offer. the next day I got an email about a financial fitness review with my credit report attached. Be prepared to write a response to negative information found and what you are doing or will do to repair your credit if this is a concern for you. currently awaiting final decision.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Southlake, TX (US)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Easy, but thorough. The interviewers purposely probe your history with former companies. Not too many traditional interview questions. They have probing questions about your history to see if you're lying. The director of sales and a manager both interviewed me at the same time. They made me feel comfortable.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell us about how you sold credit cards.
      Why didn't you sell more?
      Tell us about an angry customer, and how did you calm them.
      What would you say if a customer told you, "Cancel all my accounts."   Answer Question
