Wells Fargo said that, as part of its Wachovia takeover, it plans to bring on an additional 500 personal bankers, managers and tellers in the Washington, D.C., area and a total of about 1,000 workers in the Mid-Atlantic region. "The Wells Fargo model calls for more people than Wachovia. Wells Fargo has more bankers in the stores, so bankers can spend more time with customers," said Aimee Worsley, a spokeswoman for Wells Fargo. "We want to make sure we have plenty of people in the stores when we make the conversion, to provide [customers] with the personal attention they need."
