Approves of CEO

I worked at Fastenal full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

great sales experience, good corporate structure, good benefits

Fastenal is a very smart company. Fastenal knows exactly what they need to accomplish to secure that their stock will be successful.

Cons

limited advancement opportunities, micro-managed, compensation dependent, extremely performance based, low end of salary range

Advice to Management

Consolidate branches and incorporate a single territory manager who would be responsible for growing new and existing customer. Web-only sale of products.
