Perfect job for a person with IQ of 80 or below. Must Love Bingo, Pokeno and Coloring.

Broker Trainee (Current Employee) Phoenix, AZ

ProsI no longer work there.

ConsWhen hired they never tell you that there is sales involved. They also never tell you that it is a call center. If you have never worked in call center, you will not know that in this job you do not have any autonomy on anything. Your breaks, lunchtime, and desks are selected for you. I often called it Schwab High School. They tell you silly phrases like "make new best friends on the phone call" or "this is a fun job" You are required to play silly games like Bingo, Pokeno, and do coloring activities ... yes I am serious coloring..like crayons and markers .... If you have a backbone and do not particpate in these ascinine activitie , expect a write up. I was written up for not playing Bingo and not using my personal time to go to happy hour on my own personal time for team activites. If you are person of an IQ of about 80 it is the perfect place to work. They will think for you so there is no need for reasoning or logic.

Advice to Senior ManagementEvaluate job performance not similarities of personalities. Not every good employee wants to be your friend.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    The Worst Place I Have Ever Worked! Potential New Hires Researching the Company: DO NOT ACCEPT!

    Registered Representative (Former Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    I worked at Charles Schwab full-time for more than a year


    Pros: - Several great coworkers - Good insurance (although apparently this has since been… Cons: - Literally everything else. Management does not care to assist you in your job or on the job learning, although most lack the skills… Advice to Senior Management: There is no point in providing advice. The company gets worse and worse in its treatment to employees. 70%… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
