    Senior Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Charles Schwab.

    Interview

    The HR reached out to me regarding the Sr. Manager role. She set up a time to speak; which we did. All the basic introductory questions were asked and answered. The last question was regarding visa transfer and pay. To which the HR assured me that Schwab these days are doing a great job of, and the pay she quoted was perfectly in the acceptable range. All in all, everything went well; the outlook was positive.

    However, after that first phone screening, there was no communication what so ever from the HR rep, or the company. Despite of my follow-up emails, requesting a response and/or a feedback, there has been absolute radio silence for over 3 months now.

    Expected a lot more professionalism from an organization of the stature of Charles Schwab. Never going to consider them as an employer again!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Charles Schwab (El Paso, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    It was very straight forward, but very long. First I attended to my university's career fair, and a recruiter guided me through the application process and provided me with a study guide. Then I was scheduled for a phone interview that took about 30-40 minutes. After the interview, I was scheduled for an on site interview with two hiring managers. The on-site interview took about one hours. It took them about 10 days to tell me their decision... but at the end I was not hired because of my immigration status.

    Email Producer Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Charles Schwab.

    Interview

    Went though HR was told this was for a full time position. Then came in & had a interview with hiring manger and 2 of her employees. Again I was told this was for a full time position -- then a member of her staff comes in. And tells me they have 1 full time and two contract positions - " would I be interested in contract". I felt like this was a bait and switch interview. That was not ok. If you have a full time job position then that's what you need to be hiring for - not gauge their interest by seeing if they would be willing to take a contract position instead. Very unethical !!!
