    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fastenal (Indianapolis, IN) in May 2017.

    Interview

    2 phone interviews and 2 personal interviews, in which I've got well over twenty years experience and twelve yrs on my current job, after wasting two of my vacation days to go to Fastenal and only living 4 blocks away from them they didn't want to hire me ! Although they made it seem like I was gonna be a good fit for them! They are the same as other big business! That's all I can say.
