Commissioned based pay

Former Employee - General Manager
Former Employee - General Manager

I worked at Fastenal full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good money if you're put in good branch and you work hard.

Cons

Management at the branch level, DMs, are lazy and steal the credit for the OSPs and GMs hard work growing the stores. Salaries are terrible so your income depends heavily on your commissions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have more oversight and accountability for the DMs.

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours, thats about all.

    Cons

    Horrible pay, no real job opportunites unless you are good friends with upper managment, turnover is outrageous, highly unhappy employees, NO raise opportunites- 95% of people that work there never get a raise... im not joking at all. Hours cut to 25 so company can avoid paying healthcare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay and respect your people and stop worrying only about your own pay check.

    I worked at Fastenal

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please start paying your people a salary that they can live off of. You're losing talented people!
