Lots of turn over

Account Specialist (Current Employee)
Portland, OR

I have been working at Fastenal full-time for more than 5 years

Prosbecause 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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
