I have been working at Fastenal part-time (more than an year)

Pros

It is an honest job.

Cons

Repetitive work; tiring, boring, lonely, sometimes stressful. They frown upon teamwork and you don't get a break. It's incredible tedious and physically intensive. Most likely permanently messed up my back but it got me through college.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire managers who know the correct way to micro-manage and avoid the turnovers. You get what you pay for, deal with it.

    Pros

    Part time pay, job security, co-workers. Great experience for anyone looking for part time work, they expect you to stay with the company and when you perform well you are rewarded for it.

    Cons

    Low starting salary with limited advancement in Full Time. Either way the company is straight forward and does well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Fastenal full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy to move up if you're a punctual hard worker. Promotions happen fast because nobody stays very long.

    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 as many hours as they want you to, sometimes weekends, sometimes getting called back in after your shift ended. Very few pleasant people to work with in the DC. They continue to waste money on expensive automated equipment that never works correctly. They will hire any thug off the streets, so if you're a lead or above, don't expect quality employees. Can't blame them though for the part-time, no benefits, and $10/hour with no raises EVER.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just give up.
