    I have been working at Fastenal full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Learn many of the aspects of running your own business while using the resources of a huge company. You control your destiny for the most part. Sell, grow- you do very well.

    Cons

    High expectations regardless of market conditions. You can always do better.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the negativity when addressing your whole company. Focus on the fact that your employees are working hard. The performance of the stock is not a reflection on the quality of employees in your organization.

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

    Pros

    -It is a great resume builder
    -Learn a lot about the industry
    -Only hire within the company
    -Could make a good living
    -Great people
    -No weekends
    -Part time work is great for a high school student of a full time college student.

    Cons

    -Have to start off at part time, unless you are lucky and get a full time inside sales position
    -Money is awful starting off, it is okay as you move up in the company if you dont mind making $60,000 or so as a GM (which to me is not very worth it)
    -Can be a lot of pressure to make quota (but it is sales, so what is new)
    -Part time hours and money is pretty much a slap in the face.
    -Base salary for outside sales is pretty pathetic also.

    Advice to Management

    If you want people to stay then you need to raise your pay.
