Im hoping someone will have an answer to my question! I know the merging of Wells Fargo and Wachovia has not been decided or begun, but I am wondering if anyone has any idea what would happen to all former Wells Fargo employees that left the bank in bad terms and are now currently epmloyed by Wachovia.

I am a former Wells Fargo employee and was terminated for a loss nearing 2k that could not be recovered. I seeked employment with Wachovia and am now a teller, but I am so stressed out and want to find out what may happen to my current employment with Wachovia once or if Wells Fargo takes over?

same situation with me. I think it would cost them too much money to fire you..they would have to find and train new employees..

Wells probably wont hire you back. Policy says you cannot be re-hired if left on bad terms. Wells will probably retain all the licensed bankers that work for Wachovia and can the rest.

was the lose of the 2k your fault, or just the system as a whole?

Maybe you could try seeking employment with state or federal credit union? lots of state and federal employees that use credit unions/instead of regular banks.

I was let go last May and was on severance until October 6,2008. My insurance, which I was paying, thru Wells Fargo continued until Oct.31,2008 at which time I was offered COBRA and turned it down due to cost. Will I qualify for the COBRA stimulus ??

Daniel, your a jerk!!! Maybe she loved her job?! You must be one of those people who only look at the $$$$$ and don't care about their job. I truly hope your not in customer service. I can just imagine what an ass you would be to your customers. You'd be the reason your company loses customers. Pull your head out and grow up!

Darla, best of luck to you! I hope your able to keep your job!

All I have to say is, as a Wachovia employee, and seeing the Wells Fargo influence in management style so far, I am devastated to think what it will be like working for Wells Fargo...demands, sales, stress, more demands, coach, coach, and more coaching! And, working 6 days a week...what happened to the whole work/life balance thing? I am not happy.

If your current standing for Wachovia are acceptable for employement you will be fine for the merger. Just eliminate your errors going forward.

Any former Wells Fargo employees who feel they were terminated due to age or sex discrimination or if you know someone who does, have them contact me at [email protected] I'd like to communicate regarding this matter. We're looking into a possible class action suit. Also looking at possibility of doing documentary regarding work conditions at Wells Fargo.

Obviously you don't know so I'll let you know why people are stressed over such "minimal" jobs. We're in a recession, leaving a job is easy, but getting another is almost IMPOSSIBLE. Check out our unemployment rate, and business closure stats.
Be constructive for these people searching for solutions or be silent.

as employees we wait so long before making complaints with the places that regulate our companies. EEOC and other places enforce the rules that these companies are supposed to be following. I don't want to be an activist or anything, just say this, we get written up in many different forms then eventually lose our jobs. When you find your company overstepping your rights, document it!!! Even big companies have to follow rules and treat you with respect. Good luck everyone, we need it with this rough terrain

I'm a wachovia teller, i can feel your stress & pain.
we are always being ackowledged as the face of the bank and plays the most important role since we have first hand contact with cust. And the way wells fargo shows its appreciation to its employees in the retail banking is by taking away their chairs, not able to sit down. On top you have to sound like a broken record to cust. who already turned down the products your we as tellers are selling, and will write you up for not saying the script that they created. The pay is definitely not worth all the stress and subjecting yourself to the risk of the bank getting rob. Wells Fargo does not treat their employee with respect.

Just imagine going to work everyday, and having nobody to turn to. You are shut down if you open your mouth, and might be labeled as a trouble maker. You are better off keeping quiet and praying for your job. Wells is such an awful employer. They talk out of both sides of their mouths, and they get caught doing it, and just tell another lie. I personally can't stand it, but feel so trapped. Good luck to every body.

I'm a Wachovia/Wells employee we have't fully done our store conversion but have started the "Wells Way of doing things". I have lost almost 30lbs and my hair began falling out due to the stress of the job, the unrealistic expectations and the insulting monetary compensation plan. This merger has made me start a side business of walking dogs and I have made more on the side job than I do at the "insurance paying,retirement saving"day job.

while I am appreciative of my blessings I can recognize a modern day plantation with mental slavery being reminded that shareholders are our top priority. As of March of this year I bank with our #1 competitor because my employer chose to not honor my deposit before my credit/debit transactions I had proof as I know to print all online transactions with a time stamp and was assessed over 340 in fees. Basically the same lawsuit brewing in CA is happening all over enough people need to complain. THERE IS STRENGTH IN NUMBERS

I will end this with Wachovia was the BEST CORPORATE company I ever worked for. They cared about their employees and was rated #1 in customer satisfaction 8 years in a row. Lets see who takes it this year

Long time, good employees are leaving left and right. Either quitting, retiring (some early) or being fired. As a 27 year employee and 47 years of age, I am very concerned about my future with Wells. We are no longer a bank, but a retail store that happens to sell bank products. And no matter how you phrase it, we are selling the product of the day and disguising it as a "solution" to a problem the customer doesn't even know they have. Maybe some of us don't like to be sell or are really not good at it, but great at everything else. Its bad when the word on the street is that the customers hate coming into the bank because someone is going to try to sell them something and all they want to do is make a deposit. Our local leadership is primarily single with no children and come from Wells out west. Therefore they live and breath the bank. I have no idea how much more I can take.

I was a lead teller once the merger was in effect but I step down due the stress of everything. I have files a suit against Wachovia for discrimination. I would like for your thoughts around not keeping your mouth shut about everything.
