    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    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

    Business Support Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Charles Schwab (Phoenix, AZ) in August 2016.

    Interview

    My interview experience with the recruiter at Charles Schwab was not pleasant. The second question she asked me was, "How much do you currently make?". I know it is not uncommon for them to ask, but I'm not sure she even got my full name before she was asking me questions about my current salary. The recruiter was cold and a horrible representation of what I would think Charles Schwab would want as a first impression. In fact, I was hesitant if I even wanted to continue interviewing with the company if I made it past the first round.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    It was a great process that included one phone interview with a very friendly recruiter that was about an hour long. After being moved to the next stage, I was interviewed by two managers at their offices in Phoenix, AZ. The managers were extremely friendly and did not make me feel nervous. Some of the questions were tough but I was given plenty of time to think of thoughtful answers so I did not feel rushed. I would recommend applying for any role within the company.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Charles Schwab.

    Interview

    After meeting recruiter at a job fair she emailed me when the job discussed was posted. Once I submit my application she conducted a phone interview to screen. She then told me I advanced to the next round and later called to fill me in on the upcoming in person interviews. A month or so later I arrived at 9am and the recruiter introduced me to HR, who interviewed me, future supervisors who interviewed me, and a senior VP who also interviewed me. Each interview was about 30 min, a lot of redundancy in questions, but everyone was very nice and supportive. Overall gave me a good sense of the company and management, which is amazing as an incoming intern.
