    I have been working at First Financial Bankshares full-time (more than 3 years)


    Promotions are not necessarily easy to come by, but if you live where their headquarters are (in Abilene, TX), there is at least a lot of room to try many different types of jobs and see what position best fits you.


    Pay is low (at least in Abilene, TX) and once you're hired it kind of feels like every move is a lateral move unless you can manage to get the title of "Vice President" of something.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at First Financial Bankshares in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    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.
