    Corporate Trainer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at First American (Irvine, CA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    My first interview, for Help Desk, was short and to the point. My then supervisor shared he could train me everything I needed to know, he just want to know if I could type. I believe they just wanted to know if I could have an easy going conversation. To see if I were articulate.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at First American (Santa Rosa, CA).

    Interview

    You will most likely be interviewed by two people, whoever would be your supervisor, and the lead training manager. They ask you general interview questions but are really looking to see if you are motivated, a self started, and that you have thick skin.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at First American.

    Interview

    Interview seemed like a conversation. Then progressed into routine interview questions about previous job experience ie: problems you've had at work, risks youve taken, accomplishments, how you work with co-workers etc. Fairly straight forward interview. One on one interview.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at First American.

    Interview

    Initial interview was on the phone with the hiring manager. Then I was called in for an in-person interview with a panel that consisted of the hiring manager and two senior contract specialists. I was made to feel very comfortable during the interview and the interviewers were friendly.

    The questions focused on my experience (based on my resume). If offered an interview, be sure to be able to speak to the relevant experience you have in your resume. That is very important to them. Then, I was asked about contract theory related questions. Be sure to brush up before your interview.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Since I went in through a recruiting agency, I wasn't able to negotiate my salary. Be sure to negotiate after the probationary period.

    How to interview with 4 to 5 different people. Kind a tiresome.try to come up with some creative thoughts on their interview process. Try to show examples of how you've succeeded in how you failed. This will require are you interviewing with a senior auditor in the audit manager. Then the audit manager in and out of director. And then the VP of audit. Of course there's always a phone screen from HR.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Agoura Hills, CA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at First American (Agoura Hills, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview, on site interview. Never told the job was for interning until after I graduated until I was offered the position. I couldn't accept since I was already swamped with school. Wouldn't have bothered knowing that. They need to tell people up front if they don't want to hire and just want an intern. Also wanted me to somehow skip classes and go to their site to intern.
