I worked at Fastenal part-time (more than an 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.

    Fastenal doesn't care if you stay or go and don't bother calling HR

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

    Pros

    They paid a dollar more than minimum wage.

    Cons

    HIGH turnover rate because the company sucks for employee structure... meaning... My district manager said "we don't do reviews or give raises at all, to anyone". I was there 9 months. I worked with uneducated idiots who had no idea how to speak to employees or coach or train. In two weeks my district manager was replaced and my store manager quit. I had to work with a coworker who I had called HR on on because he liked to yell at me when know one was around. HR didn't care. Fastenal HONESTLY was the worst company I have EVER worked for. I have never had a company care less about me.... New hires... Good luck!
