Part-Time Sales Support Interview

Anonymous Employee in Whittier, CA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Fastenal (Whittier, CA) in September 2016.

Interview

Initial phone screening.
The first interview was held at the branch location in the office. I was interviewed by the general manager and the account specialist.
They were professional yet relatable and wanted to know details behind each answer I provided.
Candid about the job environment and culture.
The second interview was held with the district manager at a separate location. He was more concerned with vetting my values in comparison to the company's values. He was upfront about wanting people for the long-term, not someone who is going to leave after a few months. The process was followed up by a drug test and a submission of my driving record for possible company vehicle use.

    The interview was very basic simple and straight forward, read all of the questions off a list. Not to challenging, manager simply wanted to get it over with. but like i said pretty simple, wont last any longer than an hour or so, expect a call back within a few days and then you will meet with the DM

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Fastenal in November 2015.

    Interview

    Had phone interview then was called for interview in person with district manager. I was called by the store manager the same day for an interview with him. They were friendly. It seemed like the interview process took a long time from phone to first interview at store but it was during the holidays so that could have slowed down the process.
