I worked at Fastenal full-time (more than a year)

Pros

The training was great, as was the support from management. They really made sure that you knew what you were doing and were able get out and make your sales.

Cons

I was in the top 10% of sales people in the company and making less than 35K a year. While there is room for growth, the positions are few and far between and the low pay does not encourage you to stick around long enough to get a promotion.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase the salary or commission for sales reps, it is the only thing that will keep talent.

    If you like flexibility, but a boring job, this is a good place to work while in school.

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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