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

Pros

Management does its best to work with your school schedule and get you the hours you want. You can't typically beat a $10/ hr job as a college student.

Cons

If you want a raise, you'll have to fight for it, or spend quite some time with the company. If you want to move up in the company, you better graduate with a degree that interests them or be ready to quit school... That is all..

Advice to Management

Do less barking, commanding, and blowing smoke, and do more helping and listening to the people that are actually running your everyday operations.

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

    Pros

    Great coworkers for the most part. Great hands on training in the industrial and construction supplies field. A first hand look at different industries that require the products and services of an industrial and construction supply company.

    Cons

    The training all around is sub par. The online training is ineffective. The two branches that I've worked at have a sink or swim mentality from management as well as other coworkers.

    Advice to Management

    Training for new hires other than sales support should be quicker than the three months. The online videos need to have a positive nature to them, contrary to the last few videos that Will Oberton has published on the company website. There has to be excitement from senior management rather than a push to sell higher margin products.
