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

    Pros

    None that I can think of...

    Cons

    working in a building that is over 100 degress, during texas summer...supervisor would close off any path for ventilation... they went out of there way to make the job as miserable as possible, they would also time you while you use the restroom and deduct that time from your ONE and ONLY 10 minute break on a 8 hour shift. Pay was horrible for the amount of labor they want from you... The entire 2nd shift quit when I was there because it was that bad, nobody left a notice...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    do an audit on the Pinemont location in Houston.

    I have been working at Fastenal full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Relatively stable job environment. Some advancement opportunity.

    Cons

    No raises. Low pay compared to other companies in the same field. Constantly changing management strategy. Unrealistic goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit changing stuff all the time and focus on what works. You can't have your cake and eat it, too...either you are a growth company or a gross profit company, you can't be both. You wonder why you are not growing? It's because you are not willing to go to the profit margins required for big business.
