    I have been working at First American Equipment Finance full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing opportunity for anyone looking to advance their career with a company that invests in their employees! The interview process was lengthy but is very organized so that you know you are a good fit for them, and that they are a good fit for you. New employees are welcomed with open arms with a well thought out training schedule and even a welcome reception. It is apparent that the company spends significant time investing in new employees to make sure they are trained properly and starting off on the right foot.

    Technology is the best of the best, everyone has a mac computer and access to great IT staff. It is reassuring to be backed by so many people that are always there to help.

    Great pay, great benefits. One of FAEF's main objectives is to be the best company to work for and they are doing a great job succeeding at it!

    Cons

    Be prepared for a lengthy interview process.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work First American!

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at First American Equipment Finance (Rochester, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Phone, Skype, In person x2. The building is nice, and they just recently remodeled. All in all a pretty impressive space. They have you do ridealong 'interviews' but its really more like just watching people work, and they dont really want to interview you, just show you the job.

    Success doesn't go unnoticed at First American Equipment Finance, a technology leasing company. Newly won business is announced via digital signs around the office, alerting co-workers with music and the transaction details so everyone can celebrate together. That's because an individual win is a group win at the company, which offers all employees profit sharing and bonuses based on the year's results.

  • Thank you to the First American colleagues, families and friends who supported the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Rochester Bowl For Kids Sake. The event raised approximately $11,000! Your support will directly help the children and families see
