Great place to start, horrible place to stay

Manager (Former Employee)
Indianapolis, IN

I worked at Fastenal full-time for more than 3 years


Pros: Easy to move up if you're a punctual hard worker.… Cons: Infested with "corporate culture". No top-down management, which they excuse by claiming that it is "decentralized". If you're salaried, expect to make mid-$30's while working… Advice to Senior Management: Just give up. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
