    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Fastenal.

    Interview

    Online application. No indication of how much they are willing to pay in exchange for your labor, but they demand that you provide your “expected salary range” or you cannot apply.
    The next day was a phone interview that literally asked you the same questions you already answered.
    A week later there was an in person interview.
    A week after that was a second in person interview.
    Then they said they’d make a decision by the end of the week and notify all the applicants on Monday.
    Then they don’t bother to call at all.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fastenal (Turlock, CA).

    Interview

    It took 4 interviews for 2 separate locations. The district manager even remembered me during the 2nd interview with him for a different location. He made me feel like he was just hiring me to get the dirty work done because the store was a disaster and it needed a lot of cleaning and re-organization. After I got the job he came in to inspect the store and he told me he knew he hired me for a reason. The reason was just to have me clean up the messes of 3 guys.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Fastenal (Atlanta, GA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Did a phone interview, got a call a couple of days later asking me to come in for a face to face interview, I agreed. The HR Rep sent me a confirmation e mail for the scheduled time she discussed on the phone. An hour later the same HR Rep sent me another email to please disregard the first e mail and had another date and time on the second email.
    Two days later...I got an email stating I was not a fit for the company. I had not even been to the interview.
    I replied to the HR Rep asking if she could confirm if I was suppose to come to the interview. No response. Very unprofessional. I had researched the company online and was very excited about working with the company.
    I would never want to work for a company that treats people like this during an interview process.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fastenal.

    Interview

    The interview is easy. They want to see if you're willing to stay with the company for x amount of years. Turn over is high so if you sound motivated and willing to stay AND you're not an idiot, you'll probably get the job.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Fastenal.

    Interview

    I had 3 interviews one on the phone, one with the gm, and one with the district manager. It was easy but I felt a lot of pressure. They ask good questions and you should respond with reasonably accurate answers.
