Just an FYI- the form suggesting trying other agents is sincere (though a form, obviously). I received it and queried another agent at bookends, who requested the full. (Still waiting for a response on that).

My experience matches those below. Very quick response. Strongly encouraged I query another agent, which I did. I got another quick response from the second agent at the agency, this time just rejecting.

My experience with Jessica Faust is that she is very efficient and responsive. She seems hardworking, organized, and professional.
Even if she rejects your work, be grateful that she does so in a prompt and respectful manner.
You will not get such courteous treatment from many agents.
She should be a role model for other agents. Maybe she should run a time-management workshop and teach her colleagues a thing or two.
She has even posted videos stating that agents DO owe authors a response.
Thumbs-up to Jessica!

EQ - 10/4/18
FR - 10/4/18 (sent same day)
ER - 10/8/2018, form rejection, "intrigued but didn't connect enough, particular about new projects" (same as others below have listed)

Women's fiction, 95,000 words

Despite the form rejection after a full, I have nothing but great things to say about Jessica. She's a godsend for writers, new and established. I strongly recommend you follow her on Twitter, and read her blogs/videos on querying, agents, etc. Anyone who lands her is SO LUCKY, so good luck to everyone xoxo.
