Question 1 (Deliver the Client Experience)

Wells Fargo Bank Teller Assessment Section 1 Sample 1

Recommended Answer

MOST: B

LEAST: A

Let’s review each response.

Response A – Say that unfortunately, new accounts are not part of your job description and that he should ask one of your colleagues about it.

This response is passive and shows poor customer service and accountability. It does not provide the customer with any solution and refers them to another employee for no good reason. While it is important to prioritize tasks, you cannot leave a customer unattended and pass the buck to someone else.

Response B – Provide a brief summary of the process so that the client can decide how he wants to proceed.

This response is most effective – it addresses the issue quickly and provides the client with enough information to carry out the rest of the process himself. It may not be ideal, but given the conditions, it is the best solution you can currently provide.

Response C – Say that you are not able to fully address the issue because many other clients are waiting. Briefly prepare some printed material for the client to review.

This response is ineffective and also leaves the client with no proper treatment. It demonstrates impatience as you prefer the client to do the work on his own rather than taking the time to provide a solution.

However, since this response provides some assistance, it is not as ineffective as Response A.

Response D – Kindly ask the client to take a seat and wait for several minutes, until you can provide him with a satisfactory answer.

This response is modestly effective – by reassuring the client you will be personally available to him in a reasonable amount of time, you demonstrate patience and willingness to help.

However, since this response does not offer any immediate solution to the client’s problem, it not as effective as Response B.

Question 4 (Describe Your Approach)

Delta Airlines VJT Section 6 Sample Question 2

How to Approach This Question?

Bank tellers are constantly required to address clients’ requests and complaints, maintaining calmness, agreeableness, and good service.

While stating that people never annoy you may sound unrealistic, remember that your fit will not be based on responses to particular statements, but based on the overall scoring for the relevant personality trait (scale).

For instance, choosing “Most” on the right-hand side statement will give you a high score in the agreeableness scale, which is a good idea. However, a score that is unreasonably high may indeed seem unrealistic, and that is expected to be reflected in your profile.

Pro Tip

On the “Describe Your Approach” section, your score is calculated based on the overall profile of your responses, and not based on answers to particular statements. As such, your responses are expected to form a behavioral profile that both fits the flight attendant job but is also realistic and consistent.
