What started out as a company that offered banking and express delivery in the Wild West of 1852 is now a leading global financial company. Today, Wells Fargo & Company provides banking, insurance, investments, mortgage, and consumer and commercial finance across North America and internationally. One in three households in America does business with Wells Fargo, and on June 30, 2010, the company’s stock ranked fourth in assets and third in market value among its U.S. peers.
Wells Fargo has thousands of job openings, ranging from customer-service positions, such as tellers and personal bankers, to highly specialized openings in technology and marketing.
Stephanie Smitherum is President of Wells Fargo’s internal Team Member Network, one of nine networks formed by individuals connected by a shared background or experience. Wells Fargo’s sponsorship of these groups comes from a commitment to embrace and promote diversity and inclusion in all aspects of the financial services business.
“Wells Fargo is deeply committed to hiring and retaining diverse team members, including military veterans,” Smitherum said. “Wells Fargo has long been a huge supporter of a variety of military/veteran non-profits across the country, including Swords to Plowshares, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, and many smaller community-based organizations. We have a robust network of internal support for both active and retired military, including an internal support network dedicated solely to team members and their families who serve, have served, or are supporters of mil-vet causes. We also provide multiple year-round opportunities to give back to these communities through coordinated outreach such as package drives and welcome home events.”
