  1. Sales Associate - Commercial Lending Development Program Interview

    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at First American Equipment Finance (Rochester, NY) in Jan 2020

    Interview

    A phone call with general questions about my understanding of the company, the role and my background. The interviewer was friendly on the phone and positive about my responses during the interview. They talked about specific industry teams I fit, etc. and said they'd call back in a few days.

    At one point the interviewer referred to the job as similar to telemarketing but retracted that description.

    First American did not follow up at all, and the interviewer did not bother to respond to follow up emails. The lack of response was unprofessional, but at least the process didn't involve much time.
    Interview

    Are you comfortable making 60-80 phone calls per day?

For the past two years, colleagues at First American Equipment Finance have hosted a diaper drive event each February at company headquarters. The annual diaper drive supports the Junior League of Rochester (JLR) Diaper Bank. This year, colleagues got creative and took the event virtual with a new spin: Cooking for a Cause. This virtual event provided an opportunity for First American colleagues and their families to connect with one another from their own kitchens, learning how to prepare homemade pasta with the help of local Chef Christin Ortiz over Zoom. Colleagues were asked to make contributions at the “door” in support of the JLR Diaper Bank. Donations from First American colleagues will provide enough diapers for 15 children for 6 months, according to the JLR Diaper Bank.
