    Pros

    Company uses to its advantage self motivated sales people by offering commission dollars and freedom of work schedule.

    Cons

    commission rate (compared to the price level structure) has been raided by senior mgt

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review commission rates and purge sales force of people who are not suited for this job. Stop milking commissions from the 5 decimal place pricing structure. Stop copy catting the Fastenal way of treating employees.

    Stay focused on management development and promotions from within. Grow the company faster with acquisitions.
