    I worked at Fastenal

    Pros

    Great way to gain experience out of college. Sometimes interesting products are introduced/requested by customers. Nice employee discount. Easy to take time off.

    Cons

    The pay scale is low and corporate consistently adjusts commission formula to take money out of OSP pocket and put in their own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No one is going to stay with the company for the little that you pay. Good luck keeping talented people as they will jump at the first opportunity to leave.

    I have been working at Fastenal

    Pros

    You learn a lot about many aspects of doing business. Fellow employees all feel like they get kicked in the teeth like you so you have something in common

    Cons

    I could write a book on how big of a failure this company is. Lets start with the CEO bragging about how much money is being made while they slowly make their compensation programs worse and worse for sales agents. Great Christmas bonus (Box of old crappy candy I would have rather had the ten dollars to buy something healthy). Morale is at an all time low. Constant feeling that you are getting fired. ........

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for making your employees feel like crap. No wonder Fastenal has the highest employee turnover compared to most all Fortune 500 companies. Invest in your employees and you will see greater returns
