    Good experience but not for me

    OUTSIDE SALES (Former Employee)

    A Disjointed, Double-Edged Experience

    Inside Sales Support (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Fastenal full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Fastenal has a decentralized business model which minimizes or eliminates ridgid operational prodcedures and gives every branch the ability to operate as they see fit.… Cons: The same decentralized model that affords the branches freedom to operate on their own also condemns a lot of branches to perpetual understaffing, poor time… Advice to Senior Management: Invest in your employees, even a tiny amount. Put together an actual structured, monitored training program. Understand that not everyone you hire is going to… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
