Northwest FCS is a great place to work. They offer outstanding benefits, encourage outside training and knowledge gathering. A good life and work balance is encouraged (definitely a plus).
Not many downsides of working for Northwest FCS. The technology is a bit outdated, but they seem to be working to improve that.

- Accepted OfferAverage Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Northwest Farm Credit Services.
I spoke with a women at a Campus Job Fair, submitted my application online and received a call about 2 weeks later. I first had a phone interview with very basic job and class questions. Basically we went down my resume and I elaborated on each item. Then a week later I was invited to interview at the corporate office in Spokane. I met with the recruiter, the training specialist, the VP's of the 2 possible departments I would work in. That same day I had another interview with 2 people from the HR department. They each asked typical interview questions and I got to ask a lot of my own questions. About 2 weeks later I was offered a job to start as soon as a graduated school.
