I have been working at Fastenal full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good training and decent benefits. Great hours.

Cons

Very little support for branch level. Stores are expected to run with only two or three employees while still maintaining 100+ outside sales calls each week.

Advice to Management

More part-time support for the branch

    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.
