Fairway Family is the culture lived EVERY day. Passion witnessed in the workplace with expedited attention to detail. A fantastic work ethic displayed from th ground up. An amazing company that one does not see often.
Cheese Specialist (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 13, 2017
Abusive and harassing management. Employees badgered and verbally abuse by management. Employees are kept at part time status with the goal of management to eliminate before enrollment in the Union. Subjected to reverse discrimination by management. The union is a joke, they do not support their members. They just collect union dues and initiation fees and put on a show of support.
Frontend Manager/Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Douglaston, NY – September 21, 2016
My typical day at work was to be sure all my cashiers were doing what they were supposed to, occasional safe count while handling paperwork. I learned how to manage everything at once. The hardest part of my job would have to be having to manage when another manager or customer service rep. calls out. The most enjoyable part would have to be watching my coworkers interact with the children and helping the seniors with their bags, it gives off a warm feeling. Fairway is a big family with rules and restrictions.
Cashier (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 17, 2016
Working at Fairway has given me the opportunity to work and achieve better customer service. I am able to interact and assist customers as well as being a cashier. I help customers understand how some prices we have to certain items we sell are or different from other Fairway Markets they have shopped at. I learned in this job we value a lot of customer service and we want them to keep continuing to come shop. The management their is intact but can be more organized. The hardest part of my job is dealing with customers who we are trying to help them understand and proceed to give them customer satisfaction. The most enjoyable part of my job is that we meet people from all over the world which makes our company so diverse and expands horizons. We help the customers and they keep coming back.
Friendly, Understanding, Customer Satisifaction
Short breaks, Breaks never given on time, favoritism

Cashier (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – August 23, 2015
I love dealing with customers and people in general. I had my everyday customers and especially the children. I loved helping them out and putting a smile on there faces. They didn't understand after FAIRWAY I have a life, responsibilities, family, school. If you was Spanish they treated us different.
Cashier (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 22, 2015
I liked the job and was good at it. I was very helpful to the customers I served. I did not like management because of how they showed favortism to certain people. Most of the workers were very nice and pleasant t be around. If management wasn't being so unprofessional, I would have never left.

Mortgage Loan Officer (Former Employee) – Conyers, GA – August 14, 2014
Several of my previous employers in the mortgage lending area have closed their operations and offices. Fairway is one of the few to stay open and would be the ideal place for a Loan Officer to work if the housing market were healthy. As it is, lending is at a low point and over-regulation by the federal government has caused a dramatic decrease in incomes and job security.
Management is capable and motivating, the staff is terrific but the market has collapsed and is still in the doldrums. Loan officers have had to find other employment.
Excellent operations and back office.
Their lending market has all but collapsed in last six years.
