Grueling

Account Specialist (Former Employee)
Columbia City, IN

I worked at Fastenal part-time for more than a year

ProsGreat employee discount on some items, but that is about it. Nothing too special. When I worked for them there were no benefits offered to part time workers other than 401k

ConsLots of push from regional management to hit sales, profit and other numbers leading to short term focus and other pitfalls.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
