Wells Fargo IB Superday 2019

For those of you that have gone through the WF recruiting process in the past, how was the super day? Does WF do anything different in regards to their super day process? Should there be anything to look out for?

Any insight is greatly appreciated.

Any info on FT superday would be nice too-- are they more or less the same? (I'm assuming this post was for SA since I was told FT invites don't go out until late next week at the earliest)

Hey man how'd your first round go? Got the same info on superday invites

Aug 10, 2018

First round was alright-- was caught off guard with some questions that I would end up getting right, but that they definitely knew I wasn't confident about them. Hope we both get the invite!

Heads up - many people have said this in the past but I always feel the need to let people know to make sure they are aware what they are getting themselves into. WF is a semi-crap company. They will bait and switch you for a position and are not great to work for in general. But they are still huge, so better than nothing. But, choose wisely. Your group preference is next to useless. They say they will try and get the preference as close as possible, but I get the feeling based off of people I have talked to (I'm at WF right now) that they really just do not care. Best of luck in the Super Day.

are you in the investment banking division right now?

Really not true. Maybe you didn't network enough through sell-day but all of my buddies ended up exactly where they wanted to be. I will say that it is similar to going through recruiting again once you get the offer... lots of calls and coffee chats to link up with the right group. If you got shafted, it's on you.

I PM'ed you. But be prepared for a very little portion of mix, but mostly focused on one or the other.

How technical intensive do you think the interviews will be? Going to the superday next week.

Ya - so be prepared for technicals just like any other bulge bracket bank. They will ask you them in accounting, mergers, walk thru DCF, what can I learn from the 10K etc. They do a couple back to back interviews. Behavioral is a huge part for the interview and very important. Make sure you know the general why Wells, why IB, tell me about yourself. If you have it Wells really really likes community service/volunteering work. They focus on the person quite a lot here. If you are a crappy person or a stereotypical douchebag they don't normally like you because Wells attempts to identify themselves as having great people at the firm. In general, I think that at the end when you ask them questions, don't be too probey, but it'd be nice to try and get a general idea of where they think you could end up for a division. Non-sterotypical questions at the end are good also (just my opinion though).

behaviorals are really important and I just have to be average at technicals. But as a result, everyone is going to be decided on by technicals since everyone will and needs to at least be decent at them, but distinguished by behaviorals for sure. So be good at techs, and be great at behaviorals.

Are there group specific questions during the interviews based on how you ranked them? I didn't mark down exactly how I ranked them and I can't remember which order my top 5 were in lol

Aug 14, 2018

the two people interviewing me were from different groups and definitely not in my top 3, so you shouldn't expect anything to specific to the group

SA position?

Did all calls go out on Friday?

I went through the Wells superday in 2012, so not sure how relevant the process still is.

They flew us up the night before and there was a networking even / dinner that was quite pleasant. Form an interview standpoint, it was fairly typical. Overall structure was seven 45-minute interviews with a break for lunch. Questions were fairly typical technical and behavioral, with the younger interviewers asking more technical questions and the older guys focused on leadership experience and fit. There was more of a "old school banking" vibe overall.

I enjoyed the individuals I met, especially a VP who was an active Navy SEAL and still did missions two months out of the year - pretty awesome and epic guy.
