    Pros

    NWFCS really does put it's customers and employees first. They are doing the right things to help customers and take care of their employees as well. Supporting rural communities and agriculture is at the heart of our business and we remind ourselves of that everyday! What a great concept! It is very refreshing to work for a company with this as their culture. I have yet to meet an employee that is not happy here. If you are lucky enough to get the opportunity to work here you should do it!

    Cons

    I have yet to find anything here to complain about. They are doing the best for customers and employees. I wish I would have been fortunate enough to find this company years ago. They are a very quite giant!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! You are doing the right things for the communities we live in!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northwest Farm Credit Services (Spokane, WA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    1 hour, 4 person panel-they seemed prideful and uninterested. I question if they truly care about agriculture given their own work histories. Feels very corporate. When I later asked other employees about their experience with the company they seemed to be holding back from what they really wanted to say.
