Is it one on one with each of the managers or is it all three asking you questions at once?

i had a question regarding my resume. I just graduated from college with a masters degree and was applying for teller positions to sustain my self till i find a full-time job in my field. In my resume i included part-time work that i did for my Uncle and he used to pay me informally. Can i include this because i am concerned that it may not show up in the background check. Thank you for your help.

It will only show up if you paid tax... I personally will include it and put family business in the resume. Of course, I will inform them I work there for free or something.

Hey all! After a long and difficult process, I finally have a group interview this afternoon. This forum has really helped but I'm still a bit nervous. Wish me luck (if anyone is still on this thing) :D

unixphone--call again. honestly, after my phone interview, they gave me the group interview information right then and there and its possible that your answers didn't satisfy their expectations. BUT, take it from me, it is very worth it to call again after a few days to follow up. Try even getting the number of your region's recruiter. Persistence pays off with them.

Nice! I called them and they said I probably need to wait 7-12 more days for the "face to face" interview. I guess we don't have enough people or something. I wish you luck and please let us know how it went?

Firstly, I just got back from my group interview and there are some things that were not mentioned on here that might be helpful. The recruiter gave us all an "applicant profile" sheet that had questions like..."what was your last job like", "what schooling have you done or are you doing", "are you bilingual", and "what makes you unique?" There were two other simple questions that weren't even tough, more like an application. She also gave us another paper basically asking the questions she was going to have us answer out loud and there were only two! (greatest customer service experience, time you set a sales goal and accomplished it). Long story short, we were able to work on all of the questions, write them down, and further gather our thoughts before we actually started. I was fortunate to have gotten a recruiter who made the interview very relaxed but there weren't nearly as many questions as I had expected. It went great!

Unixphone, to this day, i still dont understand their entire hiring process. From the surface, it looks like your answers weren't "right" in the phone interview. The recruitment center is like a customer service center. They only know what is in the system so if they told you something one day, it might not mean a thing. If I were you, I would call your recruiter and see what they can do for you or at least find out where you are in the hiring process because after the phone interview is the group interview and that's when you really have your foot in the door. Let me know how it goes and be persistent.

I just called them and they scheduled me a group interview this coming Monday at Oakland. Thank you for your informative posst. Maybe they are changing hiring questions or something. I'm really excited.

I read the email; it says we need to bring salary history and places you lived in 10 years../ do we actually need those?????

thats great! I am so excited for you, Wells Fargo is a great bank (to me) and I'm glad it took you much less time than my 4 months lol. Funny how that happens though. Those e-mails are ridiculous. Anyway, my recruiter didn't ask for those things but you do need to know your past addresses for the background check authorization. Congrats!

Update:
I got a call today from the service manager that was at my group interview and she basically wanted to offer me the position at her branch. I'm driving out there tomorrow to meet the manager and see if the drive is doable (they like their employees to be local). That was fast though :D

You will do fine. As many have said, that's the time to sell yourself and the recruiters there are looking to get a feel for your personality and if you'd be a good fit. My recruiter point-blankly said that she would be paying close attention to our speaking skills if that helps. There will be no need for a laptop, trust me. I brought my notebook and some questions and I didn't touch them once. I got lucky--the service manager that accompanied the recruiter at my group interview happened to have an opening and she got to see first hand how I did in the interview so I guess she was impressed ;) I am meeting with the her and the branch manager tomorrow so I am considering that as a final interview.

good luck on your meeting and please let me know how it goes. Wells Fargo just called me and reminded me I have interview this coming Monday. I didn't receive it earlier because it's an international caller I'd. I guess they outsource it to India or something.

Hey ummm Wells Fargo is a domestic bank right? I am trying to think of a good answer on "why wells fargo and not B of A?" question

I have just completed the group interview. I think I did pretty good on the three questions, but not so well on the presentation. (my partner insist that we don't need to do the "act" and I do not want to argue...)
Nevertheless, I was told that the next interview will meet three managers about customer services, sales, and appliance. (if I pass)

Hello,
Unixphone
I am having my group interview on Tuesday and I am very nervous too, I would like to know more about what the presentation, do you have to make a presentation? about what? please tell me about it.

Hmmm - strange that you even had a presentation because we didn't. We weren't told that we would have another interview with three managers either, just straight to the branch for an interview there but good luck! Let me know if you pass. As far as my little situation, it was actually an interview and not a "meeting" but the service manager sure didn't make it sound like that lol! It's okay though because I came prepared. Once I was there however, they were mainly concerned if my personality would fit in with their branch which is a big thing at a branch interview (from my experiences). They will be letting me know if I get the job by the end of this week!

The presentation was pretty east. You just need to play an act with your partner. I'm sure everyone will do fine.

Hey jackie
Can you be more specific on the questions he or she asked? I'm really nervous and would like to have a core idea...

Kinnari, if you read through this forum, you will find tons of possible questions.

unixphone, my interview there was a bit different considering that the service manager that interviewed me at the branch (along with another manager) was at my group interview so honestly, it was more laid back and they already knew me and my friend worked there ;) Nonetheless, I had to do a mock sales presentation of the calculator on the desk. They also asked about my work experience, school/career goals, and the "what makes you different" question. That was pretty much it, they did most of the talking.

poonamsubudhi, towards the end of page 3, you'll find my very lengthy recount of the group interview I experienced. Apparently, they really differ. I didn't have to do a presentation. Hope that helps!

Well, the presentation was an act. You and your partner (one is teller and one is a customer) will do an act. For example, you suggest a existing customer to get a CD or something. Seriously, it is an easy task. Don't even think about it. I had a difficult time because my partner insisted that we do not need to act and I do not want to argue with her.... I am not trying to blame her; i just want you to know I had an extreme case.

I have just posted this on the personal banker thread, but I hope someone here can answer me too.

Hi guys
I graduated from my university(with economics degree) last month and I plan to be a licensed personal banker.
I am interested in the personal banker trainee program in Wells Fargo. I fear I am not qualify for that position yet.

Can someone tell me what does "successfully pass the Security Industry Assessment" means?

My goal is achieve series 7 and series 66, but it seems like I need someone sponsor me or something.
I applied Wells Fargo teller position, but I doubt they will sponsor me for getting series 7 and 66.

Are you the one that said you want to have a career in Wells Fargo and you graduated from San Jose?
If so I think you did a very good job in the group interview and the fact that you added that WF is one of the only banks that is doing fairly well in our economic state.

No I'm not the WM personal banker. I'm the double major student that goes to cal state east bay. I used to work at Mervyn's

I called and the lady was really. She told me it will take 7 days or so. I ask her some questions and ended up interviewing me on the person banker position (applied but never completed :P ). She said I passed and Wells Fargo will send me an email for personal banker position group interview. I don't know this is great or not. But, I will try my best.

I was asked for a salary expection on my phone screen.I am doing the group interview this month.I stated between $60-65k and the phone screen person did not say anything.If I am fortunate to go all the way through this process will someone tell me the slary expection is too high? I don't want to waste their time or mine if they are not willing to go that there.Please advise.

Don't assume anything.If you had not had a phone screen this may either be a branch store manager screening you or the actual group interview.In either case be preparred.If you want you can call the manager and ask what do you need to being(resume,salary history,references...)if he/she says to bring all that then it is a group interview.Especially if you have to bring more than one copy of your resume.Good Luck.
