Despite significant struggles in just the past few years, the banking industry continues to be a major employer in the United States and all over the world. One of the largest firms in the sector, Wells Fargo, is seeking to hire qualified candidates at its many locations.
AOL Jobs reports that the San Francisco-based bank has 1,379 openings on CareerBuilder’s website. The company employs a total of 280,000 employees all over the world, and seeks to add more in its online customer service, banking and home mortgage departments.
Brand manager Aaron Kraljev said that some who didn’t have a background in banking should still think about applying.
"Wells Fargo is more willing to hire people who maybe don't have a financial background, or a background people would consider banking,” said Kralijev in an interview with the source. "We're really looking more for an attitude than financial knowledge.We don't work in an environment that's heavily managed."
While the firm is optimistic when it comes to adding new talent, it recently settled a major lawsuit for illegally charging minorities higher rates on mortgages. On June 12, the company agreed to pay $175 million after the Justice Department filed a lawsuit for discriminatory practices.
