    I worked at Fastenal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is okay, great job for a college grad or someone looking for a good structure. A lot of branch and district managers are supportive and helpful, you can really advance if you put effort in.

    Cons

    Depending where you are, advancement opportunity may not be as easy as in other locations with a lot of stores and growth. Also, not all branch or district managers are good at their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Reinstate bonuses for sales growth, stop following the statistics so much, the company was built on hard working individuals who weren't watched by hawks. Back up and give the osp's some more space to do their jobs using methods they find successful.


  2. "Excellent Company, Great structure"

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Fastenal full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Training, support, and guidance from corporate employees is second to NONE for my work experience. Especially rare to find in a "large company" fellow peers really seem to care for the company and for each other.

    Cons

    The only slightly questionable part of my experience I suppose is that I would have appreciated higher pay

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do, and MAYBE, just MAYBE hire me back soon!!!! I miss the people and the company
