Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Fastenal (Winona, MN) in October 2008.

Interview

I had an interview with 2 people the first time and then a 2nd one with the CFO and those 2 previous people were supposed to come but never showed up.

Interview Questions

Negotiation

I wasn't able to negotiate anything. They'll low ball you on the initial offer and for the most part you have to have only talked about money throughout the entire interview to get anything higher. You can maybe play hard ball and take a lot of time to negotiate a lot more but in this economy it's hard to do that.
They'll ask your minimal pay requirements and make some people go through 2-5 interviews and still low ball the initial pay at ridiculously low salary or hourly wage.
The company doesn't pay for experience because that costs more so only expect entry level pay even if you have lots of experience. It's cheaper to have high turnover and low pay then to have experienced people.
