    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at First American Financial Corporation (Santa Ana, CA (US)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    The whole interview was a very professional and wonderful experience. I applied for First American on Indeed and they contacted me for a phone interview not a week later. After the phone interview, the talents aquisition department arranged me for a second in person interview. After the second interview they let you know if you advanced to the next round. The final interview was a panel interview and the talent aquisition department kept in touch with me for two weeks until I got the written offer.

    This interview was for an intern position in emerging technologies. It was relatively easy and straightforward. Most of the interview was describing the internship program and the company.

    Devops Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at First American Financial Corporation (Santa Ana, CA (US)) in December 2018.

    Interview

    *Disclaimer: This review is based on my personal experience. First American is a good company overall.
    First call with HR. Really nice recruiter. She gave information about First American, the position (DevOps) which I applied for and how the hiring process works. She also went through my work experience and set up a time to talk with the hiring manager.
    Now next was the interview with hiring manager, who leads this team and is a senior manager. Worst interview experience of my life (which led me to write my first glassdoor review) Interview went really well at the start. Got into technical details and stuff. I have more than 6 years of experience in the field. The only thing I would say about him is, he was very rude. I would never expect someone who is at senior manager level position to be this rude (That too during your first conversation with them!). No professionalism at all.
    I promptly declined to work under this type of management.
