I have been working at Fastenal part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great work/life balance, great managers, every day is different. Once you are a manager, many companies recruit from fastenal.

Cons

Low pay, their employment structure has too many lower level jobs, very very few upper level jobs. Once you get to a store managers job, it is hard to advance much further due to the lack of middle management jobs.

Advice to Management

Make smaller districts and have more district manager positions. By providing more room for advancement they would retain more employees.
