    Re: Wells Fargo Financial Elimination

    I used to work there for about 2 years. Very happy when I left that when I did, and feeling EXTREMELY happy I am gone now. That said I know a lot of people that still work there. Best of luck to them.

    Re: Wells Fargo Financial Elimination

    Story title makes it seem like it's better than it is. Says they are cutting 2800 positions but when you actually read it they say 2800 in the next 60 days and another 1000 over the next 12 months so 3800 total

    But if you look at the comments, one person said that a lot of these people are being offered positions elsewhere in the company.

    Re: Wells Fargo Financial Elimination

    A few years back Wells was hiring anybody they could as fast as they could after the fed lowered the prime to historically low levels (zero) and set off the lending and housing boom. Not surprising what's happened.

    I wonder what "a lot" means. I've seen similar companies in DM do this and a lot means about 5%.

    Re: Wells Fargo Financial Elimination

    Just a guess, but if they're "closing" 638 stores and only 12 are in Iowa, my guess is alot of those position aren't in the DSM area. And the ones that are, are more likely to be moved to other operations. Obviously not all - and best of luck to those not so fortunate. Not good times right now.

    Re: Wells Fargo Financial Elimination

    They are closing all the local branches throughout the US, which is a lot of people, but not much in DSM. Many of them in DSM will get moved within the company, either to banking, leasing, or home mortgage.
