I have been working at First Financial Bankshares full-time (More than a year)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Great environment and people are what make the company. Company always tries to do things to make work fun. Best work environment I've ever experienced management has great vision for the company and how to get there. Flexible when it comes to work schedule. Good benefits.
Pay is decent but needs to be more competitive. Annual raises barely cover cost of living increases. Limited options for advancement.. You wont know what you will make unless you actually are offered the job and once you move into a position there is a waiting period before you can move to another position.
Advice to Management
Continue vision for the company but remember those at the bottom that help build it.

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 5 days – interviewed at First Financial Bankshares (Abilene, TX) in October 2011.
Applied online and received a call to schedule a phone interview within two weeks (which was very clever since the position was in a call center--it gave the perfect opportunity to show off the exact skills you would need for the job). The manager who interviewed me was extremely nice and professional.
Within about four days, I received another call to schedule an in-person interview. This interview focused less on skill and more on professionalism and demeanor. This interview was done by a different manager (probably so they could compare notes on consistency). After this second interview, I was walked around the call center and introduced to several employees.
On the drive home from this interview, HR called and offered me the job, asking me to come in as soon as the next day to accept the job and sign paperwork.
A background check, a drug test, a credit check, and being run through Chexsystems were all requirements for hire.
