    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fastenal (McHenry, IL) in September 2018.

    Interview

    Initial call from corporate HR asking why I believe I am a good fit for the job. Then I received a call to schedule a F2F interview. The interviewer went through a list of questions required by corporate.
