Interview at Wachovia tomorrow... What are your thoughts on the company, its payout, name recognition, etc.. ?


Should I present a business plan at the interview, and how extensive should it be?

Name recognition?  Where the f*ck are you?  It is one of the largest banks and largest brokerage firms it the nation.  Please don't be so ignorant during your interview.  Good luck.

Now...for the more temperate version...


Wachovia has the most simplified payout in the industry.  Please see this month's RR Mag Broker Compensation article.

I understand the scope and size of their organization, perhaps I neglected the phrase the question properly.


How is their name brand recognition among investors throughout the United States? I realize they have an extensive presence here in NY and along the East Coast, but my thoughts were along the national and international side.


Also, I have written a short business plan to take to the interview along with letters of recommendation from previous employers, I believe I'm more than ready for the interview. Any other suggestions friends?

Thanks for the luck, and appreciate your response Dewey.

Dewey,



I received a call from a recruiter from Wachovia 2-3 weeks ago. I
followed thru and he said he's forward my resume to the local branch
manager. After many calls, he said the branch manager was on vacation
and would call last week, which he didn't.



I am in late stages of interviews with MS, AGE, and UBS. Should I pursue Wachovia?



Thanks in advance.

For what it's worth Plato never said the  harder you work the
luckier you get.  Where in the world did you get the idea that
that quote was that old?

You've never worked hard, except at posting drivel, and luck is something only other people enjoy, from your perspective.

Roger, another sign of being bright is the abilty to resist the urge to say something stupid at every turn.

That's funny, coming from you, Mr. Encyclopedia. Remember the theory behind federal securities regulation that you did not know? chuckle
