    General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Fastenal (Houston, TX) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Easy due to lack of qualified candidates. They needed a position filled at an under performing store due to bad prior management on both the gm and dm level. I was the best candidate by far.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Fastenal (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Received an email the following morning to call into HR, to confirm a few basic questions.

    Got a call from a branch manager a few days later for a face to face interview. This interview was a 'get to know' kind of deal. At the close of that interview I was informed the next step would be a face to face with the district manager.

    I followed up via email with the branch manager a few days later.

    The next day the branch manager set up my interview with the DM.

    The interview with DM was laid back. More of a 'getting to know you' getting to know you. What are your long term goals, getting a feel if your personality fits with the company ethos.

    Got a call the next day with a offer, which would be final after a motor vehicle record pull and standard drug screen.

    After those got back I was able to set a start date.
