I worked at Fastenal

Pros

Met a lot of networking contacts. It was Monday thru Friday. No nights no weekends always a plus. Some trainings to build upon and resume builder.

Cons

The district manager was a pompous ass. Don't kiss ass don't expect to have a job very long.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Tell the DM"s to stop MICRO MANAGING. ITS HORRIBLE.

    The managers are good at helping you out from the start and working with you. People are willing to show you the ropes.

    I worked at Fastenal part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Half of the day you are in the store working on inventory and making calls, the other half is making deliveries outside the branch.

    Cons

    Sometimes it seems you are thrown into a situation with no training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Fastenal

    Pros

    Entry level opportunities, learning sales. Good stores can be a great place to learn the ropes. If you can get in with the right people you can get a job that can be a career.

    Cons

    No recognition for the abilities of employees. Everyone is looked at based on how long they have been with fastenal or who they know. If you don't get hired for the exact position you want or have experience in you better start making friends with the right people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make district managers accountable for bad decisions. Ex: bad hires, stores without help, poor accountability for all areas within the company.
