They have a fair number of ATM machine's available.  The drive through ATM's are great because they put them at different heights.  No more opening the door or stretching too far out the window!


Happy Friday!

They got a wagon, it's a coming down the street, I wish I wish I knew what it could be. O OH the Wells Fargo wagon is a coming down street oh please let it be for me!


I almost went with Wells Fargo back when I went. They owned First Allied Capital and the trip out to see them was the most impressive of the trips I went on. It was to San Diego, and they put me up in this seedy section of town outside the gaslight district. When I went to the appointment the next day it was all about ME (I hate when that happens). Their technology, their bond desk their, platform the president  of the company. It was all good. It was all really laid back but excellent. Too laid back. "I hate people like that.......

I'm like that!" (citation please)


I needed a bit more corporate starch in my collar, so I opted to go elsewhere.


Not too long afterward, I think I read that WF and First Allied had a parting of the ways. I wasn't surprised. They didn't seem all that connected when I was there.


Wells Fargo has a good name (especially to those of us who don't know them) (not that 1st Allied doesn't). But they don't seem to want to set the world on fire.

It's a very big bank.  I think they're based in California.

Wells Fargo is one of the major players in the banking industry. Their headquarters is in San Francisco and I believe they have branches in the 27 or 28 most western states.


I worked in one of their branches for 3 years as a Personal Banker. Wells Fargo along with many other major banks are licensing all Personal Bankers and Branch Managers in their branches. At the time I left, Bankers and FC's worked together in the branch setting. The banker is responsible for accounts under $100k and would have to refer to the FC anything greater than that. The bankers, in my opinion, get jipped pretty bad because they do not earn commissions. The have quarterly sales goals to meet, and receive a payout based on which sales level they achieve.(i.e. gold, silver, bronze) If I remember correctly the top payout for a quarter was about $600 or $800. Combine that with a salary of somewhere between $30k-$45K and it's really not a bad place to start for someone who is looking to get into the industry. If you don't mind having to help with customer service issues associated with working in a bank that is.
