    I have been working at Fastenal full-time (more than an year)


    Training is amazing. I knew nothing about this industry and am now the 2nd most knowledgeable in my store. Good health insurance, pay is OK. Lowest pay in the industry, from what I've been told. Overall, completely satisfied with the company.


    Little to no room to grow. My Outside Sales Person (OSP) has been with the company 3 years and has not seen a raise or promotion. Top performer in the district. Pay needs to be higher. No degree needed (can be good or bad).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Require a college degree, even an associates. Stop lowering commission ratings.
