Since 1958 First Command’s mission has been coaching those who serve in their pursuit of financial security. Our focus is on building trusting Client-Advisor relationships by meeting face-to-face with servicemembers, federal employees and their families to learn what’s important to them, helping them establish meaningful and specific goals that reflect their values, and then constructing comprehensive financial plans for protecting their loved ones and pursuing their goals.
Just as our founder Air Force Lt. Col. Carroll Payne envisioned more than half a century ago, First Command is steadfastly committed to helping those who serve get their financial lives squared away.
At First Command, our commitment to our employees is reflected in the generous compensation and benefits packages our First Command family members enjoy.

OUR CASTLE VALUES
OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY
First Command Financial Services, Inc. is committed to the policy of providing equal employment opportunities for training, compensation, transfer, promotion and other aspects of employment for all qualified applicants and employees without regard to sex, race, color, religion, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation or veteran status.
Every effort is made to ensure that our policies regarding hiring, salary administration, promotion and transfer are based solely on job requirements, job performance, and job-related criteria. In addition, our personnel policies and practices — including those relating to compensation, benefits, transfer, retention, termination, training, self-development opportunities, as well as social and recreational programs — are administered without discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, veteran status, or other basis prohibited by law.
Since First Command was founded in 1958, our leadership and our employees have been deeply committed to supporting a variety of non-profit organizations in our Fort Worth community and the military community worldwide.
In April 2013, in recognition of the mounting responsibilities and pressures put on United States servicemembers, veterans and their families, our CEO Scott Spiker announced a new initiative to get military families "squared away” by raising awareness and taking action to address critical issues facing active duty military, post-911 veterans and military spouses.
To demonstrate our commitment to the promises of Squared Away®, we have partnered with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Hiring our Heroes program, which aims to find meaningful employment for 500,000 post-911 veterans and military spouses. As part of that partnership, we awarded the program a $100,000 grant in its first year, and announced our own intention to recruit more than 2,100 Financial Advisors over the next five years, participate in 100 career fairs, and deliver financial workshops for US servicemembers through the First Command Educational Foundation.
We are also teaming up with Project Sanctuary, a non-profit organization that provides therapeutic retreats to military families to reconnect and reintegrate in their communities. Our donation of $100,000 to Project Sanctuary has been used to help build a permanent retreat center in Colorado. And, we also serve as the organization’s exclusive financial planning partner, delivering financial education workshops and individual family financial coaching at all retreats.
In house, we have the First Command Charitable Services Committee, which is made up of employee volunteers throughout the company who give time, money and additional resources to employee-recommended charities. Each year the committee selects five special charities to support in and around Fort Worth, Texas, as well as selecting an employee Volunteer of the Year.
To accomplish our goals of providing emotional and financial support to those in need, we are also proud supporters of organizations like the First Command Educational Foundation, First Command Package Brigade, Tarrant County United Way, and many more.

Advice to Management
Continue to promote young and talented Financial Advisors. Work on our brand image and continue to support the advisor force.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at First Command (Fort Worth, TX).
Phone screen by Human Resources. One on one interview with hiring Director. Received and accepted job offer within one week after one on one. Interview was one hour and 99% of all talking was done by hiring Director. No other interviews before offer was made. Very few questions and when I tried to inject some of my background I was cut off by the Director. All selling by the hiring Director.
