    In Store Sales Support (Former Employee)
    Westerly, RI

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


    Pros: The store is run however your manager decides. You may get a truck and gas card. Lots of training which you will probably never have… Cons: It's hot , its cold, things don't work, our A/C was turned off due to poor performance, and we worked off of space heaters in… Advice to Senior Management: Don't hire people with one description then have them do something totally different. Don't go tell people they are going to be terminated every week… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
