Dear anna we just cannot sit around and not do anything and let them get away with us. if each one of us do atleast something its a start and people will follow. our lives are ruined because of WELLS FARGO.
I agree Wells Fargo has ruined my life but look at all the lives ruined by other companies and no one else cares.Occupy for as large as it is has no clout.Unless the majority of the country stands behind those of us who have lost their is little that can be done.

did you have any luck against wells fargo? I am working for them right now.. and I hate it... any tips
Hi Fernando,
Action is still ongoing I'm confident that God willing i shall prevail. Karma can really bite the ass hard. As for tips hmmm , if you willing to be a slave to their system then keep quiet nod your head and agree to what ever the master DEVIL dictates. I know it can be difficult trying find suitable alternative employment with the state of the economy at present. Also be vigilant as there is a trend to frame you and then cut your throat. They even had the audacity to try to deny me unemployment, but common sense prevailed as i would have made them look foolish. On the morning of the hearing they withdrew the appeal.

how did they set you up? so many of these stories have happened to me in the last two months. seriously.

Hi Fernando
If you can stick it out and need the job to live on please don't quit until you find another job.I quit because I could not stand it any longer. I am now strugling to find a new job and only have a few months left before I start to lose everything.They forced be into quiting but I wish now I had waited to be fired.If you have worked for them for over a year they will have a tough time denying unemployment.I regret the way I went because after working for 5 years I have nothing to show for it.

Has anyone from Florida noticed that if your 50 and over and you have longevity in banking.That you seem to be a target for harassment and write-ups(formal warnings). Kinda seems like the word is out to shove out the older employees and bring in some young ones.
Let's get a poll , sounds like a class-action to me.

I think if you have longevity period, they are out to get you. They know that they can hire younger people, pay them half of what we make and mold them the way they want to. I started with First Union and I guess we don't "mold" as easy, because we know Wells Fargo is doing everything wrong. The stress is absolutely ridiculous. I drove home crying yesterday, but I don't know anything else and can't afford to take a less paying job.

You don't have to be from Florida to be treated like dirt. I live in Maryland and I'm 58. Wells Fargo harassed me to death and forced me to quit. I hate this companay and hope they go under.

i worked for wachovia for a couple of yrs was a great company to work for, wells came in and destroyed everything good about wachovia. As tellers we are required to sell products to customers and be agressive to get them in to bankers, its about sales not customers. Many employees are lving some are so sick form working here that they go leave. Wells is a awful place to work you are not valued at all, treated poorly, and harrased all the time by managers and service mgr, always told how to speak and what to say and how to say it to customers, and solutions thats all they care about. If you want to work for this company don't you will regret it"""" "" you are just a number to them....its any enviorment that is making its employees sick, and thats not the place you want to be....

wells fargo should at least let the tellers on the teller take a bathroom break, sometime we go five to six hours without a break. they say if any customers in the lobby we can't leave our stations. we have to use their wording to talk to our customers, this is the way they say we will get more sales. the customers aren't stupid, the know what were doing, we are trying to sell them something. someone needs to check into these things. i have worked at wf for fifteen years and had to stepdown from being a lead teller about three years ago, i felt force to stepdown because of my age. they also told me that the young tellers needed to attend classes because they need to move up in wf world and basically that i was to old. they also don't let us have chairs because it not professional. my legs hurt so bad that i had to go to the doctor to get pain pills so i could stand their all day. i spoke with my manager at that time and she said that it must be hard to get old, of course she denied that she said that, another manager told me to embrace the young folks and teach them everything i know because i was at the end of my career. their's plenty more.

Same song and dance... different outcome. I was fired about a month after making my DM look like a fool in front of our RVP. Fired for closing a way 2 save and opening a customer a new one for the better interest rate. States in the code of ethics that it is allowed. They tried to deny my unemployment benefits and I took them to court over it. Of course the state of north carolina agreed with me. In hind sight that job sucked! I am so much more happy and stress free and I landed another financial job and finally work for a company that values its employees and doesn't try to screw customers over left and right. Wish I could've been a WACHOVIA FS for ever!

Well...2 days into "Jump" and everyone is so stressed out, I don't know how we'll make it through the rest of the month. I just love how it is unethical to open a zero balance account 11 months out of the year, but perfectly fine during Jump. This company doesn't know the meaning of "ethics".

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.
you hit the nail on the head

i am curently working as a wells teller.its so frustrating for me coz wells has a a stupid script that we have to say to every single customer whether they wanna hear it or not.some customer take advantage of it as it really sounds liking kissing their ass.As a result they give me love letters, flowers leave love notes on my car.I feel harassed. i reported this to my manager they did nothing to help me.Now i hear from one of the manager that the DM is talking about firing me. i am shocked and dont know what to do.

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.
