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

    Pros

    lots of experience and training. a good 7 to 4 work schedule and weekends off. ideal if you have kids. also a pretty good earning potential if your store is in a good district.

    Cons

    the only way you can move up is through sales. You have to be a very sales oriented person although you do get a good base salary. The commision is very complex and could be confusing and the pay is not to competitive for the amount of work.

    Pros

    it could be a great job if the higher ups cared about the employees more

    Cons

    they keep you at part time so cant ever receive benefits and they work you to hard for not enough pay. at interviews after i quit there, other companies laughed when i told them wht i made while i was employed there.

    Advice to Management

    don't be so worried about your ops managers and be more concerned with the people who actually keep your business going.
