    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.

    Packing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    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.
