Very Easy Interview

Senior Marketing Manager Interview

Senior Marketing Manager
South San Francisco, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Charles Schwab in April 2010.

Interview Details – The hiring manager has more influence over the decision than the consensus of a group but be careful of how much 'gloss' it is presented during the 'courting' period. If the manager wants your skills bad enough, a lot of the unexpected shortfalls will be glossed over. Typical for marketing, only the good side will be shown to persuade one to view things with a rosy glass. Questions such as, "tell me about your goals," "how would you contribute," etc.

Interview Question – it was a straight forward interview without hard-hitting questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – no room for salary upside so start at a high point of the position range

Difficult Interview

Senior Marketing Manager Interview

Senior Marketing Manager
San Francisco, CA

I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Charles Schwab in November 2012.

Interview Details – Note: this was for a contract position. I had a phone screen with a person at my level and also a managing director. Then I went in for an in-person interview. I was required to answer a large amount of questions and provide writing samples in the interview (and I was given less than 24 hours to complete the "homework"). One hour after I left the interview, I received an email asking if I wanted the contract.

Interview Question – Overall there was no difficult question but the interview "homework" I was expected to complete was rather tedious. I was required to look at their website and their YouTube channel and develop a strategy around their retirement products.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There were no negotiations as this was a contract with an hourly wage.

Senior Marketing Manager Interview

Senior Marketing Manager
San Francisco, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Charles Schwab in May 2012.

Interview Details – I applied for a Senior Marketing Manager position for their small retirement accounts. Within a week, the HR department sent me an email requesting a date and time to interview. The interview questions were the same situational questions most companies are applying in the interview process, which are for example: tell me a time when a supervisor criticized you unfairly, and how it made you feel.

Interview Question – Why should we hire you?   Answer Question

Senior Marketing Manager Interview

Senior Marketing Manager
San Francisco, CA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Charles Schwab in December 2009.

Interview Details – Schwab is a good company, and at the SF HQ, they generally takes pretty good care of interviewees. The challenge is that they often have so many candidates for a role, you may never hear back how you did, although they do sometimes send an automated email follow-up. I'm optimistic that should I be a good match with them (and have the opportunity to make a good connection with the actual hiring manager), I'd be a good fit in their Marketing team.

Interview Question – How important would it be for you to have your license?   View Answer
