    I have been working at Fastenal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Depending on where you are in the country and what your role is with the company, Fastenal provides a great, trial-by-fire introduction into the business world. You gain exposure to many different industries and business practices.

    Cons

    The pay is pretty low and there are no real raises. Also, promotions are only given (generally) to those who relocate across the country. Fastenal is built to turn over employees, and in many areas that is their objective.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink the pay structure, give some incentives to make the best and brightest want to stay with the company.
