"The overall company is very good. The employees are top notch and the core values are in line with the client's best interests. The AFC role is not ideal for an external hire candidate as there will be very little training provided. After 3-6 months new hires are flown to a weeklong training session. The experience and actual daily duties of the AFC job will vary greatly depending on the location and staffing of the branch. The best way to get promoted is to be willing to move."
