Mortgage Loan Officer (Former Employee), Conyers, GA – August 14, 2014
Pros: excellent operations and back office.
Cons: their lending market has all but collapsed in last six years.
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 – more... 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. – less

Cashier (Former Employee), Pelham, NY – April 6, 2014
Pros: a lot of hours
Cons: no complaints
Work a hour straight before you take a 15 minute break then you work way into your shift and take a thirty minute lunch break.

Stock Clerk (Current Employee), Plainview, NY – January 19, 2014
first thing i walk in my manager doesnt even say hey good morning or afternoon, he says"ready?" feels like im a piece of meat there. nothing is hard about the job its gets frustrating how you are treated – more... there by co-workers and managers. the most enjoyable thing about fairway is leaving. just an overall bad company to work for.pay is not bad but im looking for a career working 37 hours and making 9.50 does not cut it. – less

Pros: a check every week to barely make ends meet, i still appreciate but looking to leave.
Cons: write ups for every little detail we may forget regardless of we're overwhelmed with responsibility
i currently am employed at Fairway. Seems like everyone i know that works there is terminated just before they make the union and benefits kick in. Not for me. In addition they have me on a part time schedule. – more... I need full time employment or the chance to secure a job that promises or at least gives that option in the near future. a promise for opportunity to grow would be nice.
typical day at work. retail execution, maintenance and customer service what i learned bake off products management never there in the evening supervising. they leave me alone every night. they only work days. Co workers Shun away from responsibility leaving me the majority of the closing duties which i feel is inappropriate Hardest part of the job closing the dept and working the dept short staffed every night. Most enjoyable part of the job the customer interaction and service i render to them. – less
