I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Fastenal.

I was interviewed by my District Manager. I had seven years of experience so was basically given the job. They promote from within, and just want to see good numbers. If you can do well in an Outside Sales Position and you should be fine. There was no second interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Fastenal in December 2008.

    Interview

    Basically had to make a commitment to the DM that I want to make the job a career. It was rather informal and candid. I was given the option to promote or remain in my current position with the company. There was no negotiating the salary as it was take it or leave it.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the most important quality to you? (given options of: Integrity, ambition, innovation, etc.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Dont bother trying to negotiate. The DM offers what they give other employees in the same position and geographic area.
