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.


HR Coordinator

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.

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.
