Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – March 13, 2019
When I started at First American there were many opportunities for growth. I was able to move quickly and expand my position. The people were also great to work with. After 9/11 their priorities changed to make money for their stock holders. Many entry level positions were sent to Mexico and India. It's a different environment there now. Not as many entry level positions as there use to be or opportunities to advance.
I learned many skills and perfected skills I already had when I started there. I'm very comfortable working with many different types of management styles but my favorite is open communication. I was able to share ideas and be heard. My ideas weren't always implemented but sometimes they were and I felt my contributions were valuable.
Agency Accounting Manager (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – March 12, 2019
I sent some time with First American Title and it wasn't all bad. It was only when I transferred to the Phoenix operation that I experienced the effects of bad management. Advancement opportunities were very discriminatory. Management was very discriminatory in the way employees were treated. The work place culture was lowered to the level of high school clicks. The hardest part of this job was to show up every day and do your job in spite of the barriers place by management. The best part of the Job is when I found another job and got out of the Phoenix operation.

Escrow Officer (Former Employee) – Brookfield, WI – March 2, 2019
Great People, Great Benefit. In this type of work there are ups and downs, the market is not always busy so there are really busy times and really slow times, apparently our corporate office decided we were too slow and they closed our office and let us all go without any advanced notice.

Senior QC Mortgage Underwriter (Former Employee) – Santa Ana, CA – February 27, 2019
At the beginning it was an enjoyable and productive place to work. As some management left and new management was hired from outside the work culture changed and there was a large disconnect between management and employees which ultimately led to the closing of our department.

Vice President/ Sr. Loan Originator (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – February 18, 2019
I learned so much working with 1st American Mortgage, Inc. I gained so much knowledge with the lending world, in addition to perfecting my management skills. I had the opportunity to make so many new friends and long lasting client database. I wish they hadn't closed the company. the owner moved out of state with his family.
