    Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Received a call from the recruiter and immediately they start asking salary questions be careful with that! They ask a lot of questions about possible scenarios of angry client's and how you handled. Be wary they offer amazing bonuses and over time. Neither is easily attained; bonus is paid in tiers depending on seniority, pay grade level, and extra roles you took. Overtime is offered twice a year and limited.

    Interview Questions

    • Summarize the worse comment received by a manager   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Terrible, they tell you they cannot negotiate. They lie, negotiate at least 10-13% more, that is their latitude

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Charles Schwab in July 2017.

    Interview

    The recruiter called me over 30 minutes late with no excuse or apology. He acknowledged he was late, but didn't tell me why. Because of this, the entire interview was VERY rushed. He talked extremely fast and when I asked questions, he answered them wrong since he was so flustered and didn't take time to understand them. It was pretty disrespectful. When I asked him for his email to follow up with him, he refused to give it to me and said I would get an email from him. I never did. The recruiter was located out of Colorado although the position I applied for was in Austin, TX.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Charles Schwab (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    Process took about a month. Initial 30 minute interview with a talent acquisition specialist. Then went to office and three separate 45 minute interviews 2 with team members and one with the manger. Finished off with a 45 minute phone interview with another team member in Orlando.

    All the interviews were essentially the clones of each other. Going over resume and asking questions about myself.
