Retirement & Estate Service Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZ
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview


The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Charles Schwab (Phoenix, AZ) in February 2012.


Have had the same experience of most people. Went through a lengthy interview process simply to get a basic form letter rejection without reasoning. Strange, because I am Series 7 & Series 66 licensed, a ChFC, and have worked in the financial services industry for 14 years. It seems that during my in-person interview they had a negative attitude towards my former employer (kept talking about how much better Schwab was, and who knows, they may be but why bring that up) and discounted my previous experience saying that experience administering and acting as broker of record for various types of retirement plans "was not in my best interest".
