Sink or Swim

Former Employee - Client Service Specialist in Phoenix, AZ
Former Employee - Client Service Specialist in Phoenix, AZ

I worked at Charles Schwab full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

People are friendly and professional.

Cons

For an entry-level position into investments, dealing with client accounts and money, I would expect the training at Schwab to be more complete. My training was about two-weeks, with a different trainer almost every day, and the trainers didn't follow or utilize the training book as often as I would expect. By the time training was over, I didn't receive a lot of support, and felt like it was sink or swim for me.

Advice to Management

Regardless of what role someone is being hired for, ensure to provide complete and detailed training.

    Pros

    Well respected brand, with strong marketing and walk in traffic

    Cons

    a nearly impossilble to understand, ever changing compensation quota system.
    A near cult like culture, don't even think about straying from company line no matter how innocent you think a suggestion might be.
