Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable phone help All of my phone question experiences have been good. If there needs to be more clarification, there is no hesitation in referring to the research team. All of my contacts have been cordial & helpful. I might not like what I hear all of the time, but I've learned something for future reference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable I have been a Schwab Client since the 1980's with complete satisfaction and trust. The daily reports Schwab emails me about my holdings enable me to know the unrealized profit or loss on my stocks and mutual funds. I have recommended the brokerage to my friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brokerage Works for me with purchase and sales at my discretion. I have found that information and suggestions provided in comparing potential stock and bond decisions in sell and buy is really all that one needs. I think I have done pretty well over the years on my own rather than continued fees for recommendations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My experience I have and will continue to be a Schwab customer for life because Schwab has proven to be honest, upfront and responsive to my needs. I have never had a bad experience with the website, staff or any Schwab office I have visited in the last 25 plus years. They offer all the products I look for and are priced competitively to other similar providers of this service. I have recommended (and they have followed through in many cases) relatives, friends and acquaintances to open an account at Schwab and try them out. Once you do this, you will never leave. Thanks to all the Schwab team members.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I have been dealing with Schwab since forever and they just keep on getting better and better. The customer service is fantastic. I have never in this time been unhappy with ANYONE that answered their phones when I needed information on my account. Schwab is the best.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from website...order status screen I like schwab customer service a lot. If I may make a suggestion..... When pulling up trade order status, it would be extremely helpful to me if the current price of the securties ordered and the total of open order prices was available on one screen and without having to click on individul orders
