An Insider's view of Fair

What are some social events your company does?

Fair thrives on creating an engaging culture and we do this by hosting monthly "Happy Hours" and this past year, we hosted a "Wellness Week" during Mental Health Awareness Month.

What makes someone successful on your team?

Successful team members listen intently to our customers, use their creativity and “native geniuses” to solve problems, and work together to improve the customer experience. Success comes in the form of growth and development opportunities, merit raises, and a sense of purpose and accomplishment in serving our customers.

Amanda

VP, Customer Experience

What is your vision for the company?

My vision is to make Fair the leading marketplace for transacting on and financing a used car – and one of the primary ways that people access personal mobility globally. We’ll do this by delivering our customers real savings and a trusted transaction experience – and by acting as a true partner throughout the time they drive with us.

What are Fair Perks + Benefits

Fair Benefits Overview

Our name pretty much says it all. It’s our culture. It’s the way we treat our customers, our network of dealers and our fast-growing family of employees.

That’s why we offer equity incentives, 100% coverage of medical, vision and dental premiums for employees and their families, 100% paid parental leave for up to 4 months, 401(k) retirement plan and a remote work stipend for every employee.
