    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Charles Schwab (Denver, CO) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and heard back 2 weeks later. After two phone interviews, I was told I was one of the final applicants and the department manager would call me. 2 weeks went by and I had to remind them to call me. 4 weeks later they told me they offered it to someone else. 2 weeks after that, the position was back online. Terrible at being timely and getting information to you.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Charles Schwab in December 2016.

    Interview

    30 minute phone call with HR representative for screening. Then to someone in the field (1 hour) more behavioral questions. Then to the senior director for final interview. My only complaint is that I completed the interview within about 2 weeks, and didn't receive an offer for about 5 weeks.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Charles Schwab in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and heard back from a recruiter a few hours later to set up a phone screening interview with a recruiter. First interview was mainly behavioral questions, where I went to school, GPA and basic questions. The second interview was 2 weeks later with a manager. Mainly behavior questions about my personality, where I see myself in 5 years, favorite/least favorite class. The third interview was 10 days after that with 2 managing directors in the trading and operations division. Asked behavior questions about stress management, values I want in a company, asked about previous internship. 10 days after my 3rd interview I got a call and email from the recruiter I first spoke with that I would be moving onto the next stages of the selection process- they had to do a background check/ drug test. The day after I submitted the drug test I got a call to say I had passed everything and they extended an offer to me.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Charles Schwab (Chandler, AZ) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The person that interviewed me quit shortly after. Asked mostly cultural question about people's feelings towards security. One regular expression question on the white board. The other candidate was too "cocky". They basically wanted an abused dog to retrain. They are perfectly happy to offer their advice without ever taking any advice from others.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you deal with people who don't care about security.   1 Answer

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Charles Schwab (Austin, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Managerial round cleared. Second round was on programming test. The interviewer stressed on syntax than logic. I was not happy with him and remained dejected. Judging people entirely on programming test in 30 minutes is vey unfair
