Bank Teller (Former Employee), Tucker,GA – May 9, 2013
Loved banking!!!! First things first check your building and count your money. I learned how to deal with large amounts of money and interact at the same time. How to sell products and make people happy.
Personal Banker (Former Employee), Los Angeles – May 9, 2013
Pros: lots of money. considering if you can stomach it.
Cons: pure evil.
Lots of pressure. I didn't wanna sell my soul so I left before it took me. My coworkers all either were divorced because of their job or were dang near close. It was like being in a shark tank of money. Pure Evil.
Teller (Current Employee), Central Austin, TX – May 8, 2013
Pros: bank hours, medical benefits
Cons: sales, management
Bank hours are great. Off by 2 on Saturdays and every Sunday off is seriously 95% of why I work there. But its not worth it. They are extremely sales driven and the customer surveys your performance is rated on is worded in a way that confuses customers and kinda screws you over. Plus the bonuses they rave about are not reasonable and hard to earn. – more... Lets just say every one of the employees at my branch, (tellers, bankers, and even management) are always actively job searching. – less
Personal Banker (Current Employee), Florida – May 8, 2013
Pros: hour lunch
Cons: houding tactics, long work days
Banking it self is a very tough job . The job is entry level and dosent require a degree I should have known it would not be easy. This is my most honest opinion. Wells Fargo rates you based on solutions. Everytime you see a customer you find your self seeing how many solutions you can get out of them . Its ridiculous. Then they rate you on your WOW – more... skills which anything less than a perfect 5 is failing. As if any of us are perfect. Then you have to compete with coworkers who are like vultures when they see a checking account its hard not to lose your self in all of it . And when your numbers are failing if your lucky youll get a district manager who insists you need help and that you document all the ways why you sucked that day not including the fact that you were doing service or while all the viable solutions were snatched up by others you were left with nothing. They do not accept excuses and your rebuttals on the fact that most people do not keep appointments . Lets face it while we are at work these people are too so how can we expect them to keep appointments. The sad truth is you rely on walk ins and you may find your self becoming a door man hoping that the next person says : I need to open a checking account. – less
Underwriter (Current Employee), Lombard, IL – May 8, 2013
Pros: good benefits
Cons: no work/life balance
Mortgage fraud is alive and well at this site. Apparently if you're a big producer, a little fraud is tolerated. Even worse, they will work you to death and spit you out. They keep throwing money at their staff like a band-aid not realizing that at a certain point, no amount of money will help. They do not care about your work/life balance and they – more... don't care how many hours you put in. As an underwriter, you are responsible for every piece of the file and are the only party held responsible. You are the only person in the whole process who gets audited and are therefore the only person truly held accountable.
Wells Fargo only cares about their sales- they talk a good game about caring for their customers and employees, but their actions speak FAR louder than their words.
The most enjoyable part of this job is going home! – less
