I worked at Fastenal full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Company is growing, if your in sales you have a good opportunity to make good money as you are in a bonus program.

Cons

Not a lot of room for advancement, company seems to have a lot of family and friends so if you haven't been there since the beginning or have family who's been in the company then advancement won't be an option. CEO doesn't feel computer department contributes to helping on sales and considers it to be an expense - IT department only got a very small bonus and since has been excluded from the bonus program and base pay compensated, but is still $5000 - $7000 lower than the national average for the area on annual pay.

    Pros

    Once you have the job standards and procedures figured out, you can be pretty much on your own.

    As a part time job, the arrangement for work schedule can be very adaptable & open--as promised.

    Cons

    Can be (literally) very heavy at times, and, delivering that same heavy load on location, in an industrial environment can be a toasty event.

    In today's world, the constant -random- drug testing can be tedious.

    Not a job for those who like to stay clean.

    Advice to Management

    Add / use some climate control (where possible) in the warehouse. It's ironic that the staff that is sitting / stationary / lightly physically active has air conditioning, while the heavy workers toil in the still, humid air. A couple of fans would go a LONG way.
