The company shows its support to its employees and teams like ours in a myriad of ways. For example, when people began working remotely at the start of the pandemic in 2020, Fairway spent $16.3 million to ensure employees had workout equipment to exercise at home as part of its robust wellness initiative. “It’s really cool to watch the company give back so generously to their employees,” said Ethan Wilson.

Things like humility, integrity and the love of competition are important here,” said Scott Jacobs, a loan officer in Washington State. “Our team and our business has always put the customer first. There is not one employee here that isn’t dedicated to make sure a client is taken care of from A to Z. No one works harder than us!”
