"Great place to start and build a background"

Star Star Star Star Star
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

Entry level opportunities, learning sales. Good stores can be a great place to learn the ropes. If you can get in with the right people you can get a job that can be a career.

Cons

No recognition for the abilities of employees. Everyone is looked at based on how long they have been with fastenal or who they know. If you don't get hired for the exact position you want or have experience in you better start making friends with the right people.

Advice to Management

Make district managers accountable for bad decisions. Ex: bad hires, stores without help, poor accountability for all areas within the company.
