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

Pros

If you are persistent, thorough and work hard it is hard to not be succesful
time off is not bad
endless tools at your disposal to make your job easier if you know where to look
potential for good commissions if you are in or near a big city

Cons

everyone has to start part time-if that isnt a slap in the face to a new hire I dont know what is
being passed over for a promised promotion is not uncommon
when things go bad, it seemed that the culture of the company focused on doom and gloom and scare tactics

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In my experience the majority of upper management are great at what they do and are more often than not interested in the development of their reports. Unfortunately it was obvious that sometimes upper management got where they were by only looking out for number 1 when the time came
