I have been working at Fastenal full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Pay is average (if you work overtime) and full benefits are nice. Flexible schedule in some cases. Advancement is based on sales numbers which makes sense, you do get what you work for.

Cons

Being a women in this company makes advancement seem unlikely if you are not living near or able to drive to corp. head quarters. Can't help but feel the 'good old boys' atmosphere EVERYDAY. When someone doesn't hit sales numbers for some reason they don't get fired they just get moved around to a different store or a different position. I understand that thought process if it's happening just once but for it happen to someone multiple times and they are never let-go or removed from sales... at some point management should man up and fire/demote the person.

    Pros

    Good workout, sometimes we get to get the managements leftover catered food
