I have been working at Fastenal full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

because of the high turnover there is room for advancement. If you get the right GM and DM its a good place to work. They offer lots of really good training.

Cons

the pay is low. They always expect more and more out you with out a raise in pay.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your gm's...be readily available for them bc you may want things to be done one way and they were taught another way...even though we went to fastenal school of business... I was hired with you all and promoted within 2 wks of employment...then 10 mths later with only a part timer bc my osp was on work comp disabiility...promoted to GM..grew a store 154% in a 12 mth timeframe...did not have a DM for over a yr...then new DM comes in an within a year and producing #1 within my region...IM FIRED... Without a warning...NOTHING ...DM walks in one morning and fires the best producing store in southeast SC...what happened to our 4 values...called my RVP and emailed the CEO ...never got justified for anything....if they only knew there previous DM that ran our region gave me permission bc we were a satellite store...so very sad
