    Software Engineer(Internship) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Charles Schwab.

    Interview

    I applied online, and I got a phone interview a few weeks later. The recruiter emailed me beforehand, telling me to ask questions if I needed to about the phone interview. During it, he told me that if I progressed to the next round, I would be called in for a final, on-site interview. We had a fun conversation, but nothing really stood out, which I guess is why I got a rejection email a week after the phone interview.

    Phone screen with recruiter, then passed that to go to the first in-person interview with two managers, then a interview with the director of the department. If you pass that then you get the job offer and the whole background takes at least almost 2 months.

    Summer Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Charles Schwab (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    HR sent me an email saying I was accepted to do an interview. I schedule the phone interview to happen a week in advance. When the time came, nobody called. So I decide to call him to see what happen he said he forgot to check his calendar. So he said he was sorry and would call back the next day. That didn't happen. Was trying to email him and call him to reschedule no response. Was pretty upset I didn't make it far in the interview process.

    Associate Relationship Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Westlake, TX

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Charles Schwab (Westlake, TX).

    Interview

    Applied online. Got an email within two days for a phone interview. Immediately after finishing the phone interview, I was asked to do an in person interview, which will be about one week out. For entry level positions, they do hiring events. You do an individual interview for 45 minutes, a tour of the facility, and you watch a presentation followed by a Q&A session. If you get through the that, you’ll get a call and an email two or three days later. From there, you’ll apply to the background check and drug screen (your choice of Quest or LabCorp). Once you do the drug test and submit your final paperwork for the background check, it’ll take 10-12 business days to hear back.

    Interview Questions

    • Instead of an interview question, here’s some solid advice - BE AS ENGAGED AS POSSIBLE. They want people who are eager to get that job, and truly care about how the customer feels. Be sure to ask tons of questions. Listen to what they’re saying, but be sure to be thinking about what your next question may be. They want to see you digging.   Answer Question

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lone Tree, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Charles Schwab (Lone Tree, CO) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Heard back about an phone interview about 1 week after applying. The phone interview was straight forward, a get-to-know you, walked through my resume, asked a behavioral questions or two.
    Was told at the end of this phone interview that the recruiter felt good about the interview and my application, and I'd be moving onto the next stage. Was told that I would get an email in a few days to schedule an in person interview.
    Received the email a few days later describing an in person interview with 3 hiring managers who thought I'd fit in well in their departments. Was told the day that I would be interviewing, and given a selection of a morning or afternoon time.
    Interview was not very technical, spent one hour with each hiring manager, totaling three hours. Was asked to solve some logical puzzles on a white board in front of them - they wanted to see how I went about solving these problems; it was actually pretty fun.
    Was told I'd hear back about a position in about a week. Did not hear back and reached out, was told that some things came up, they'd get back to me in a few days.
    Got a call about another phone interview later that afternoon. Asked for some background as to what was going on, and told that the hiring managers did not think I was going to be good fit in their departments, but all thought I'd be a great fit elsewhere.
    The interview went great, some more behavioral questions. The position was a Project Management Position.

    During the entire process I could tell that Schwab was hiring for the company, not a specific position. I admire this. They saw that I wasn't a good fit in one place but saw that I would be valuable elsewhere. I was very impressed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Charles Schwab (Richfield, OH) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I knew the Schwab recruiter throughout my college career and when the time came to apply for a full-time position, I was invited to interview at their Richfield, OH location. The interview was very relaxed and felt more conversational than just reading off of a piece of paper. Some questions were a bit challenging, but I was able to make it through without too much of a problem.
