    I have been working at First Niagara Financial (Less than a year)


    Great conscientious place to work


    Management has flexibility. This is good / bad depending on your level of management. If you can work unstructured, this is an asset for you.

    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at First Niagara Financial.


    Great interview process. Spoke with HR person, scheduled interview with BM and RSM. Discussed position as well a career paths. Found this program is much more mature than its' peers. PFA, to Sr. PFA, to Junior FC, to FC is the potential career path. The first 3 positions listed are one's that you can reach by hitting higher production levels and you don't need to wait for any openings. The future is yours at FNFG.
