Former Employee - Sales Representative in Charlevoix, MI

I worked at Fastenal full-time (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 Management

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

    Pros

    Work every aspect of the business
    Promote from within

    Cons

    Not enough pay for hard work
    Not as decentralized as it use to be

    Advice to Management

    Trust your workers to make the right business decisions.
    Pay a bit better and we would not have the high turnover.
