    I worked at FirstGroup America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A growing and financially stable company, with great potential. It provides a chance for advancement to all employees. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Leadership was lacking at times. Issues with personnel were not addressed promptly enough. Foreign company leaders did not truly understand US ways for doing business in every instance.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of employees.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at FirstGroup America in October 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, received a call to schedule in person interview. Interview lasted 35 minutes and discussed the company. Was disappointed that he didn't ask questions. It was difficult to sell myself when I'm not given questions. Very casual interview but could've been more structured.
