    I have been working at First American full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've found First American to be a great place to work. I work for the National Commercial Services Division and my hours are generally reasonable (end of quarters or for a large closing, there can be some long days). The company has quite a lot of internal training and in my three years I've seen a commitment to promoting within.

    Cons

    While generally FATIC is a great place to work, there are two areas that I think it could improve on. 1st, it's technology (from internal HR pages to necessary programs) are very clunky and seem outdated and difficult to use. 2nd, the benefits and HR support are a bit lacking when it comes to parental and sick leave.

    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.
