Success Stories

Here are a few quotes from some of our Leadership Training Program graduates...



"My time in the Leadership Trainee program helped prepare me to be a leader at First American Bank.  The balance between high expectations and the personal attention provided by the coaches create a supportive environment that grooms you for success.  I think that it was such a privilege to be apart of the program because First American Bank was investing in my future and catering the program towards my needs to create the best situation for me to succeed.  I have been given the opportunity during the program to work as a teller, personal banker, customer service representative, loan officer, and was given the opportunity to intern in the operations department where I excelled and accepted a position as an operations manager."

"Having no banking experience the Leadership Trainee program was perfect for me.  I received extensive training as a teller, personal banker, and customer service representative.  The employees and the coaches that guided me through the process were extremely helpful.  I was given the opportunity to work at six different locations and meet many different people.  The family atmosphere and helpfulness of all employees helped me to succeed.  I graduated from the program and have now taken a position as a Personal Banker."

"As part of the Leadership Trainee Program, I was able to obtain a solid understanding of the banking industry, as well as all the different facets of the company. With help from the career development staff, I was able to discover that my true interest lies in Human Resources. I am now part of the Human Resource team and enjoy every minute of it."

"One of the elements that attracted me to First American Bank was the Leadership Training Program. I had previous banking experience and was looking to expand my knowledge on different aspects of the bank. It was advertised I would do as such and I was not disappointed. This program was a unique training experience designed to fit my needs. I was able to learn different functions of the bank during each rotation, but most importantly, I met extraordinary staff that helped mold me to the employee that I am today. I am very proud to be a part of the FAB family and thank each of them for coaching me through my professional development. I look forward to continued growth with this great and exciting organization."

"The Leadership Training Program gave me the opportunity to grow and develop my skills in various areas of banking. Throughout the program, I was given the opportunity to work closely with different managers, a regional and sales coach. That type of one on one assisted me to achieve a higher level of expectations implementing the FAB standards.  The program enabled me to advance in my career and strengthen my operational and sales aspect of the branch life. This program prepares you to be a leader, but most importantly gives you the extensive training as an employee to make sure you are in the right fit. It has been four years since the program and I am still learning something new on a daily basis, but most importantly I am happy to be apart of the First American Bank Family. I thank everyone who has helped me get where I am today and for the opportunities that have been presented along the years."
