    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at First American (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    It seemed more like a conversation about the company and getting to know what it is that they actually did here. I was not well versed in title insurance and there was a real effort to make sure I understood what I was getting into and that I would enjoy it.

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at First American.

    Interview

    I applied online through the First American website. It took three weeks for me to receive a phone call. The first call was from a recruiter in California. She briefly explained the role, asked me why I was interested in the position, asked why I was looking for a new job (as I was currently employed), and what my desired salary would be. Afterwards, she said they were in the beginning stages of interviewing but everything sounded good so she would pass my information along. The next day, I received a call from a second recruiter out of California. This call was to schedule an in person interview. The interview was scheduled a week out. During the in person interview, I spoke with two separate managers individually. They asked standard interview questions (i.e. What made you apply to this position; Tell me how you would handle a difficult client; What do you like most about your current job; etc.). Each manager asked similar questions... I'm assuming to see if you're consistent in your responses. After the in person interview, I waited about a week and a half to hear back. The original recruiter checked up on me twice by calling and to see if I was still interested (they knew I had one other offer on the table). I finally got the call that I got the job. I was ecstatic! First American is a great company to work for. Good pay and excellent benefits. Then came the background check. It was very intense. You better be honest on your resume and application because they WILL know if you've exaggerated your job title, responsibilities, salary, or length at a position. The do a thorough criminal check and they verify your education. You have to provide supporting docs as well such as pay-stubs, W2's, and 1099's if you were self employed - so don't try to be sneaky. All in all - it was a good experience. The First American representatives I was in contact with were exceptionally professional and kind. The hiring process was long. It took exactly two months from the date I applied to the date I received my offer letter post background check.

    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.
