Branch Manager (Current Employee) – Nanaimo, BC – 12 January 2018
If you are looking for easy, for simple, for a mundane and stress-free working environment then Fairstone is not for you. If you are motivated, like to challenge yourself and feel the accomplishment of success as an individual and as a part of a team, if you like the idea of great earning potential and if you have empathy, compassion, integrity and intelligence then Fairstone may be the perfect place for you!!
It is a company with so much to offer the right people, and the right people find themselves employed there for 5, 10, 15 and 20+ years. Those for whom Fairstone is not the right fit realize it relatively quickly and move on to other things.
Fairstone mentors and trains its employees to be as successful as they can and want to be, promoting from within right to the top management positions. Aside from a very good salary, the right individuals find great earning potential, an excellent bonus/rewards structure and fantastic health and pension benefits.
To sum it up - its a company which offers so much but expects a fair lot from its employees in return - where much is given, much is expected.
If you are one of the "right" people, you will want to be a part of this!!

Fairstone has many great opportunities for those who like to be challenged and are satisfied with rewards and recognition based on performance. The right person has to be people-oriented and be able to apply problem-solving in order to help people in their various financial situations. It is very exciting to be in a position to help families make their dreams become a reality. We have goals and an excellent training program to prepare someone to become successful in this job. When you can look yourself in the mirror every night and be satisfied that you have made a difference, then that is what it is all about. Ethical and transparent dealings with clients ensures a good reputation and can lead to very long-term client relationships.
Rewards and recognition based on performance. Satisfaction in helping people.

District Manager (Current Employee) – Saskatchewan – 2 December 2017
I started with the company 15 years ago on a temporary mat leave position at the bottom of the list at a young age. They were very flexible with my schedule to the fact that they let me go to university during the days and still work there. Then they paid for my final two years of university where I graduated with a degree in business and marketing. Once I was finished school I was given the opportunity to open a brand new office of my own to manage. 13 years later, I'm now running an entire province. Best career move I ever made for myself and my family. I advanced extremely quickly where I will continue to grow. I was also able to change many other employees lives for the better over the time. I could never see myself doing anything else. I started from as low as you can go and over a short period of time I moved up the ladder with hard work and the support of the company. They gave me great training in which I could apply to anything now and it has helped with my success in life.
Work Life Balance/Compensation with lucrative bonus structure/Benefits Package
Branch Account Executive (Current Employee) – Nova Scotia – 7 October 2017
This is the worst place I have ever worked. The training is inadequate, and management is extremely poor. You will be expected to break policy and go to shady lengths to meet your target sales goals, as well as your delinquency targets. Management bullies staff and relies on fear tactics to get staff to comply. On the plus side the benefits package offered is fantastic. It’s just not enough of a reason to stay with such a bad company.
