It all about the ACR1 screen
I've been working for WF as a personal banker for almost a year, and for the most part it has been a good experience. There are a few things that have bothered me about upper management's lack of tack when it comes to driving sales and motivating employees. Let me start by saying that it seems that the store manager position seems like a highly overrated position and that the title would be more accurate if it were to be called a "slave driver". It seems to me that the most important job of the store manager is to look at the ACR1 screen(sales output screen) constantly through out the day and complain of how we need to get it to an astronomical number by the end of the day. This pressure is magnified 10x every Wednesday, with the entire district held at different goal attainment levels by a certain time of the day. If the sales goals are not met (my branch seemed to always be on this list) you are punished by staying an extra hour after closing time(mybranch closed at 7pm) and make phone calls to bank customers, peddling things such as check card rewards($12/year fee),credit cards, loans & insurance products. Wells Fargo has a motto of "relationship banking", but all of that is thrown aside the minute you walk in the door and view the daily sales goal and hear your manager complain about how the ACR1 screen doesn't move by itself.
Report Manager to Human Resource because i was harrast and i was constantly make fun of my accent and instead i got suspended for POSSIBLE fraud of the inscentive program and that when my husband when to get me he was on the phone in front of my job and the manager and assistant manager said that my husband treatning then and 2 other co-worker colaborate that. then again is only 6 employee in this branch including me.
Don't sell yourself short
Allow them to let you know how much they are wiling to offer or the starting salary is. If you go to high it might leave a bad impression, too low and your selling yourself short.
