I applied online. I interviewed at Charles Schwab

Interview

Applied online and interviewed the next day with the talent advisor, who seemed to be pretty nice/laid back. Got invited for a second interview with 2 managers which was a bit tenser than the first interview. They explained more about the job and the department to me, then asked me a mix of behavioral and technical questions. I was then invited back for a third interview with another manager and a coworker. Both were professional and responsive to my answers, the difficulty was above average but easier than the second interview. Received an offer a week later starting at 8k higher than originally discussed.

Interview Questions
  • (As I can recall): A time you worked on a group project with people with different ideas? Talked about a time i did something innovative. Spotted an error while working? A time something went wrong while working on a project? My only advice is to be prepared to explain why you want to work for Charles Schwab and what you know about the company. I would suggest researching the company.

Interview

Applied through LinkedIn, and a recruiter reached out to set up a phone screen. I assumed it would be your usual 15-20 minute "Let me tell you about the role, you tell me why you're interested" first call, but this one went a whole hour, with the recruiter asking me some STAR questions on top of the usual phone screen stuff. They were nice, and liked me, so I was moved onto the next round. Round 2 was an hour WebEx interview with two managers. It was more behavioral based questions, with some more technical questions thrown in there so they can get an idea of your financial acumen

I interviewed at Charles Schwab

Interview

Process : 1st - face to face. More about Resume and then a coding question. It's similar to "Number of islands" with some variations. Next, was scheduled for final round with 3 back to back interviews for 3 hrs. 1st - introduction & coding question based on String manipulation. 2nd - coding questions on image rotation and arrays. 3rd: complete behavioral. Later on I was told that all the interviewers were okay with my performance. Recruiter told me that she was trying to find a right team who can provide sponsorship. This process went on during pandemic for 6months but they never found a team. Finally I realized it was not some thing to wait and yield results. Overall interviewers were friendly. It was good interview experience.

I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at Charles Schwab (Austin, TX) in Apr 2021

Interview

1:1 interview with a recruiter, followed by the hiring manager, then that person's manager, then a group interview with the team, and another group interview with people I'd be working closely with, but who sit on a different team.

Interview Questions
  • Lots of behavioral based questions, so come prepared to talk about specific things you've done. For example, a time where you had a conflict or a challenging co-worker, a time where you had competing priorities and how you handled it. They also asked how I behave when stressed.
