Not only does Wells Fargo expect a prospective employer to jump through a number of hoops once he or she registers! with theworknumber.com (Wells Fargo's employment verification service), Wells Fargo also expects the former Wells Fargo employee to do the following:
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS: To provide someone with proof of your employment and income, you need to complete three steps, review each below and then click create button.
1. Create a "Salary Key." (This is the next step after clicking the create button below.) The Salary Key is a six-digit number that you get on this web site.
Giving a Salary Key to someone gives them permission to get proof of your employment and income one time.

In addition, theworknumber.com charges the prospective employer $10 to $13 for this information, depending on whether they choose to become a member or not.
I've been looking for work for six weeks, and have found nothing. Wells Fargo's way of handling employee verifications serves only two purposes: 1) ensuring the former employee will remain unemployed for an extended period of time, and 2) make money for theworknumber.com (Of which we all know Wells Fargo will receive a percentage. They don't do ANYTHING for free.)
Stay away from Wells Fargo Bank. They're corrupt to do business with. They're very evil to work for.
