Good company, great people, poor pay

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Fastenal

ProsThe people are generally awesome. The few idiots we had were fired quickly. There is room for promotion if you are a hard worker.

ConsLong hours (7am-5pm). The pay was so low, I had to move on. I couldn't afford to buy a house.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease start paying your people a salary that they can live off of. You're losing talented people!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
