    Current Employee - Part-Time Fastenal Sales Trainee in Birmingham, AL

    I have been working at Fastenal part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You learn a lot about industrial sales. My fellow employees are wonderful. The pay is good for a part time job.

    Cons

    Wish they would move up faster, it's hard having a family on part time pay. Reward the employees who work hard better. Fix the pay/commission scale for osp's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use a system that offers more consistent pay to Gm's, Osp's. When you say your going to do something honor your word.
