    I worked at Fastenal part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good compensation, freedom to drive business yourself. The company has a good reputation and looks great on a resume. You can learn about many different facets of business and construction.

    Cons

    Little training, lots of tiny screws and other inventory to count, management only cares about increased sales. My manager was fired the first week I arrived.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had a summer job there, maybe not enough experience to say about upper management. Store managers seemed to not feel like they had the tools to succeed and meet goals.
