By Former Wells Fargo  Interviewer Jacob Gates

Based on my experience with interviewing job candidates at Wells Fargo, I composed the list of twenty most common interview questions they use at the bank. We will have a look at the following questions:

  1. Why do you want to work at Wells Fargo?
  2. Why this position?
  3. How did you hear about this job?
  4. What is your availability?
  5. How far are you willing to travel? / What location do you prefer?
  6. How do you handle stress?
  7. What would you do if you knew someone was stealing?
  8. Have you ever worked at a bank before?
  9. Give an example of you dealing with an irate customer and what you did to fix the problem.
  10. Give an example of a time you made a point to go above and beyond with customer service.
  11. Talk about successful sales experience.
  12. Tell me something about yourself
  13. What would you do if you were 500 dollars short when preparing to leave?
  14. If a customer accused you of a bad service, what would you do?
  15. Explain a time when you were busy and needed to prioritize the tasks ahead of you.
  16. Tell me about a time when you thought it was important to follow a rule. Why was it important to follow this rule and how did following this rule effect the others?
  17. Describe a time when you have effectively resolved another person’s request. What was the situation and what kinds of information did you gather to help assist in resolving this request?
  18. This job can be repetitive. What would motivate you to do it well every day?
  19. What are your salary expectations?
  20. Do you have any questions?

 

Question 1.: Why do you want to work at Wells Fargo?

Hint: You should focus on personal preferences to Wells Fargo, their vision, culture, working environment, products, etc. You should simply focus on something that distinguishes them from other competitors, something that interviewers should be proud of.

Interviewers are not stupid. They understand that job seekers would be happy to get a job at any bank, not only at Wells Fargo. However, you should do your best to convince them that Wells Fargo is your first choice. Pre-interview research will help you greatly in this case…

 

Good Answers

I meet all requirements and I believe that I would fit the working environment well, considering from what I have observed as a client of this bank so far. That’s why I prefer to work at Wells Fargo. Though I submitted my job applications to two other banks, WF will always be my first choice.

I really like Wells Fargo. I, as well as other members of my family belong to the millions of satisfied clients of your bank. I believe this bank offers the widest portfolio of products, services and solutions for huge variety of clients. That’s why I would love to work here and would be proud of that fact.

 

Question 2.: Why this position?

Hint: You should tell them that you believe to have the right predispositions for the particular role. You can also stress your motivation to do the job, connecting it to personal preferences, or other reasons. We struggle with the motivation of employees in banks, so you should do your best to convince them that you’d enjoy doing the job you have applied for.

 

Good answers:

I believe to have the right personality for this job, plus it is really something I would enjoy doing. With the motivation I have, it would be easy to do a good job of a teller (analyst, mortgage specialist, manager, etc), and I am sure I won’t get bored after a few weeks or months.

I meet the requirements for this role better than for any other one. On the top of that, I had the same job in the past, so I have the experience and I believe I can bring some value to Wells Fargo on this position, and that also other employees can learn something from me.

 

Question 3.: How did you hear about this job?

Hint: Many people apply for countless jobs. Browsing job boards, they submit their application everywhere. Recruiters at Wells Fargo want to find out if you are one of them, if the meeting you have together is “just another job interview” for you.

It is important to give a clear answer to this question, mentioning the place where you found the offer. This will help you to convince them that interview at Wells Fargo is the one you remember, and care for.

If you have a friend working at Wells Fargo, mention their name and say they gave you just the best feedback on having a job at Wells Fargo.

 

Good answers

I found the job on monster.com two weeks ago. When I read the job description, I immediately decided to apply. It seemed like a perfect position for me.

A friend of mine recommended me this job. She works for Wells Fargo in Dallas. She told me a lot about working environment and a typical day in job. I liked what she said, so I decided apply.

I check new job offers at Wells Fargo website regularly. About two weeks ago, I finally found a job I believe I can be good at, and one that is not far away from my place. I applied and here I am in the interview with you.

 

 

Question 4.: What is your availability?

Hint: This is not one of the most important questions. Nonetheless, you should neither look like someone desperate, someone who needs virtually any kind of a job as soon as possible, nor like somebody who is not sure if they want to work at Wells Fargo, or not. The best answer is to say that you are available from the 1st day of the next month. In case that you can not start so soon, you should explain why you can not.

 

Good Answers

I can start from the 1st July (August, September…)

I can start ASAP. I am unemployed, and though I have also other interviews scheduled, Wells Fargo is my first choice. If you offer me a job, I will accept it and won’t even go to the other interviews.

I could possibly start tomorrow, but I want to finish the project I am currently working on. It would be very unprofessional and irresponsible if I left my current job right now. I need two or three weeks to finish the work and then I can start here.

 

 

Question 5.: How far are you willing to travel? / What location do you prefer?

Hint: The more options you mention, the better the chances of getting a job. If you have a car, you should say it. However, I recommend you to mention also the most preferred locality, to ensure you’ll get the job in that place, if it is available. Also, I would suggest avoiding talking about children you have, or about any other reason for your location preferences.

Interviewers should see you as someone flexible, as someone who is willing to sacrifice something for their job at Wells Fargo.

 

Good Answers

I have a car, so I am flexible. I can work anywhere in Washington and neighboring places.

I would prefer to work in this district. However, I would not mind traveling anywhere in the range of twenty miles.

This job is a great opportunity for me. I really want to work at Wells Fargo, and grow professionally at your bank. Therefore I would not mind relocating, if needed. However, the best location for me is definitely Denver, a place where I live right now.

What the others think:

Anneta Mayers, reviewer of the eBook

I am not really the most outgoing person and you won’t find communication skills on the list of my strengths. However, your guide helped me to get rid of job interview stress, and prepare for the interview, especially for the role play. They offered me a position of a teller in my second interview with Wells Fargo. Thank you Jacob!

Annetta Mayers, Dallas

Aron Robson, face picture, one of the customers who sent us their review of the bookIt is a funny feeling when other people look at you with envy. It happened to me in a group interview at Wells Fargo. Other job applicants just could not understand how it was possible that I had a great answer ready for every question. Apparently I was the only person in the room who had read your eBook.

Aron Robson, Sacramento

Julieta Smith, another reviewer of Weells Fargo Interview GuideWhen they invited me for finance analyst interview at Wells Fargo, I did not want to underestimate my preparation. I hired an interview coach, and bought several books from Amazon. However, only your interview guide was specific to Wells Fargo interviews, describing the nuances of their interview process. I got a job and definitely don’t regret buying the book. Thank you Jacob!

Not an easy interview….

Interviews at Wells Fargo belong to the most difficult interviews in the United States. Job applicants are tested with a set of screening, technical, and behavioral questions. A cherry on a cake, role-play, waits for most job seekers at the end of their interview.

I have seen many people fail. But…

  • They failed not because they lacked the qualification.
  • They failed not because they were stupid.
  • They failed not because they would not handle the job they were trying to get.

 

They failed, simply because they had no idea about how to sell themselves in an interview, and what the interviewers wanted to hear from them.

But it doesn’t have to be your story! I do not work for Wells Fargo anymore. Currently, I teach people like you how they can succeed in their interview, and I wrote a specialized eBook, Wells Fargo Interview Guide, which will show you how to ace an interview at this amazing bank.
