    Perfect job for a person with IQ of 80 or below. Must Love Bingo, Pokeno and Coloring.

    Pros

    I no longer work there.

    Cons

    When hired they never tell you that there is sales involved. They also never tell you that it is a call center. If you have never worked in call center, you will not know that in this job you do not have any autonomy on anything. Your breaks, lunchtime, and desks are selected for you. I often called it Schwab High School. They tell you silly phrases like "make new best friends on the phone call" or "this is a fun job" You are required to play silly games like Bingo, Pokeno, and do coloring activities ... yes I am serious coloring..like crayons and markers .... If you have a backbone and do not particpate in these ascinine activitie , expect a write up. I was written up for not playing Bingo and not using my personal time to go to happy hour on my own personal time for team activites. If you are person of an IQ of about 80 it is the perfect place to work. They will think for you so there is no need for reasoning or logic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate job performance not similarities of personalities. Not every good employee wants to be your friend.

    I worked at Charles Schwab full-time

    Pros

    This was one of my first jobs out of grad school and the culture is greta. The human resources element is taken very seriously and the culture is supportive.

    Cons

    retail is hard and depending on the location, if you work at a branch the public can be very difficult. The money is not top tier but then again, its a bank not an iBank.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow the junior stars to move up faster.
