The best hands on learning experience that I could have gotten through an internship.

4.9 of 5 stars

Denver, CO | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

I was treated like an employee and was given actual assignments and projects to work on. I had multiple mentors that I could go to for guidance. No one ever turned away when I needed help on anything. I met and made great friendships out of this internship.

Downers

It was hard to accomplish what we wanted to accomplish in 10 weeks.

Advice to Potential Interns

The internship flies by, go in with an open mind and ready to work. Make the best out of it, learn as much as you can, and network as much as you can. You are working on actual projects, so get involved and do not be afraid to ask for help.

Advice to Management

My department was great, there is nothing that they could have done to make this internship any better!

Really get a chance to meet people in the company, who want to get to know you and help you in any way. A caring employer. A great way to see what working in the corporate world is like, and to get the opportunity learn a lot about the company.

Downers

This was the first year of the internship program, so some parts felt a little unorganized. However, I would expect this to be better next year.

Advice to Potential Interns

Take this opportunity, you won't regret it! You get to learn so much about the financial industry, personal wealth management, and get to see a lot of different aspects of the company. Plus, you get to meet a lot of really interesting people.

Sample Interview Questions

What are your strengths? When have you had to deal with a difficult group of people?

Advice to Management

The intern compensation should be more similar of a level in my opinion. I know some interns made $16/hour while others made $30+/hour. I don't this there should be this much disparity.

The cohesiveness between all interns throughout each Schwab branch. Given employee benefits for life. The Intern Academy structured it's foundation around giving the interns an all-around great experience. 15% professional career building activities and 85% individual work. The structure of this internship was phenomenal.

Communication with my off-site manager.

My advice to potential interns would be to ask as many questions as possible. Take advantage of working with a prestigous organization and utilize all your opportunities of being surrounded in that environment.
