Current Employee - Sales Support in Allentown, PA

I have been working at Fastenal full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Learn lots of different business related tasks such as supply chain, accounts payable/receivable, and purchasing. Sales will be the focus; however, real life experience will be gained with regards to communication and the numbers game. Use as stepping stone, or career; its up to the individual.

Cons

Not enough support staff. The store never has enough staff members; instead we have to constantly train a new part-timer.

Pay structure needs to be adjusted for inflation and COLA.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Slow down on the layer building. We have way too many mid-level managers.

    Pros

    Decentralized company, if you do your job you will be left alone to do it for the most part

    Cons

    Very low pay, benefits not all that great. Micromanagment while used to be nonexistant, getting worse and worse by the day.
