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

    Pros

    I cannot say enough great things about this company. The leadership is incredible, honest, and very forward thinking. Throughout the year multiple surveys go out to ask for any changes or improvements we would like to see in action and then those topics are immediately addressed and shared with the company (I know this because I am on a team that reviews and discusses survey results directly with the CEO). The company is very thorough with the hiring process and because of this I can honestly say there is not a single person I work with that I do not enjoy working alongside. Lastly, I've never heard or come across such a rewarding compensation and benefits package in every way you can think - in fact, in just my first year I found myself on an all expenses paid vacation to Grand Cayman where I got to bond with my coworkers for a week which makes the work environment feel more like being with family.

    Cons

    Honestly, I cannot think of anything

    Advice to Management

    Keep on listening to all employees as we grow

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at First American Equipment Finance (Rochester, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Initial phone screening followed by two on site interviews. Interview's were very relaxed and essentially nothing technical was asked. The managers were very interested in understanding you skills and interests and if you are a good fit at the company. Most questions were either behavioral or questions about my resume.
