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

Pros

Great if you like the HUNT!

Cons

Margins are set too high if you want to increase actives!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You must allow sales reps to net new customers with low prices and then win them over with customer service while you increase pricing!

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

    Pros

    They were very flexible with my schedule while I was in school. They do a lot of hiring from within so there is room for growth.

    Cons

    Pay is a little lower than similar jobs in the area. I was there for over a year and a half and never had a performance review or raise.

    No opinion of CEO
