Wells Fargo is currently number 29 on the Fortune 500 company list and the fourth largest bank in the United States.
My experience with them as an employer has been nothing short of amazing. They have a culture that is identical to what we had in the service to include a value system that truly cares about accountability, ethics, transparency, service, and support to its community and customers, and its entire workforce and partners.
They have multiple initiatives to support veterans to include partnerships with American Corporate Partners where they pay for each service member to receive a year long mentor from Wells Fargo, and they have signed up 100 mentors to pair with mentees this new year. A second initiative they have put in place is the sponsorship of FourBlock to Charlotte and hosts the initial class and host the graduation celebration. Third, they are a partner organization with Hiring our Heroes Corporate Fellowship program with the DoD Skillbridge/Career Skills Program. Fourth, they have a military hiring pipeline that opens for applications to be submitted by the end of November and paid internships to start during the Spring with the goal of hiring up to 20,000 vets through all programs by 2020. They have a robust Veteran Team Member Network (VTMN) company-wide and local chapters, plus two veteran mentorship programs that veterans can sign up for once onboarded to include the Buddy program, and a more formal leadership program.There is also a company mentorship program open to all. Every month the VTMN hosts a company wide webinar to discuss important topics affecting us and the community, and each local VTMN may host webinars and in person networking events and community outreach activities.
This is a small piece of why I love working for Wells Fargo.
