    Pros

    because of the high turnover there is room for advancement. If you get the right GM and DM its a good place to work. They offer lots of really good training.

    Cons

    the pay is low. They always expect more and more out you with out a raise in pay.

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

    Pros

    Once you have the job standards and procedures figured out, you can be pretty much on your own.

    As a part time job, the arrangement for work schedule can be very adaptable & open--as promised.

    Cons

    Can be (literally) very heavy at times, and, delivering that same heavy load on location, in an industrial environment can be a toasty event.

    In today's world, the constant -random- drug testing can be tedious.

    Not a job for those who like to stay clean.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add / use some climate control (where possible) in the warehouse. It's ironic that the staff that is sitting / stationary / lightly physically active has air conditioning, while the heavy workers toil in the still, humid air. A couple of fans would go a LONG way.
