Aaron, Assistant Store Manager

Name: Aaron
Start Date: July 2005
Current Position: Assistant Store Manager
Location: Green Bay, WI
Education: BA in Business Administration, Saint Norbert College

What do you in your role?
The majority of the job involves generating new business from customers who have existing accounts with Wells Fargo and generating business from those who do not. A lot of the accounts that we are handling are zero-percent-financing accounts that you can find at furniture stores or home improvement stores. The job also involves leading by example by generating new business in terms of home loans, vehicle loans, and personal loans. If we have new employees, I help train and mentor them.

What’s been your career path?
I started as a Credit Manager. Once I met certain sales and performance goals, I was promoted to Senior Credit Manager. After Senior Credit Manager, your managers evaluate your leadership role within the branch. Are you consistently performing? When they feel you’re ready, they promote you to Assistant Store Manager. I was promoted about a year and a half after I was on the job.

What do you like about your job?
I loved numbers growing up. I wanted a job where I could work with numbers and help people. The best thing for me is I can come in everyday and meet new people, and help change their financial future for the better.

What are your career goals?
Whatever I do, I want to make sure it’s something where I can succeed not only on my career path but with my family as well. I would like to eventually run a store. After that, I’d like to become a district manager. Whatever I do, I want to make sure it’s something where I can be face-to-face with customers and still help people out.

What has surprised you about your career at Wells Fargo?
The thing that surprised me most is that even though it’s a bigger company, everybody is really supportive. It’s more a family than a business. Everybody is looking out for everybody else.

What have been your greatest successes at Wells Fargo?
It’s great to have a customer come back and say, hey, I really appreciate what you did. To have someone write you a little note or want to talk to your manager and say you did a good job is the thing I value the most about this job. The biggest successes are when a customer you worked with says they appreciate it.
