Outside Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Employee
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Fastenal.

Interview

It is a two part interview with the current store GM and DM of the area. If you are lucky they both will be present to make it smoother, but you may be required to drive up to 1 hour to meet the DM depending on his schedule with his portion coming as late as 3 weeks after the initial GM interview. If you need a job quick this is not a place to try and go as the interview process can easily take a month and additional drug test takes about 2 weeks to finalize.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fastenal in February 2015.

    Interview

    There were 3 interviews. First was a phone call with the general manager of the store. Then an in-person interview with them. After that, you are interviewed by the district manager. It was laid-back and all questions with both the GM and DM were encouraged and answered honestly. I learned a lot about the company and the day-to-day operations.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There wasn't much negotiation. You either accept the offer or you walk out the door. Everyone starts off exactly the same.

    Interview

    Interview process is easy. DM calls you over the phone to do a phone interview. Then you meet the DM and GM you will potentially be working for and interview with the both of them. If they like you, you get hired.
