GM Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Fastenal in December 2008.

Interview Details – Basically had to make a commitment to the DM that I want to make the job a career. It was rather informal and candid. I was given the option to promote or remain in my current position with the company. There was no negotiating the salary as it was take it or leave it.

Interview Question – What is the most important quality to you? (given options of: Integrity, ambition, innovation, etc.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Dont bother trying to negotiate. The DM offers what they give other employees in the same position and geographic area.
