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

Pros

There is no pros to this company. Everyone they hire is from the same mold. If you stand up to their illegal activites you get fired and denied unemployment. Shameful

Cons

Everything about this ckmpany is a con. Salery, comission, branch mangers that steal to support their drug habits. Higher ups sleeping with employees to get better positions. All around terrible company. b

Advice to Management

Leave.

    I worked at Fastenal full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good starting point for a young college grad, total freedom, great building blocks in getting your hands dirty, role playing included being a janitor, clerk, inventory analysis, warehouse/dock worker, forklift operator, delivery driver, maintenance mechanic, manager, inside/outside sales, customer service, accounting (recruiting & hiring was taken away)

    Cons

    36k base, I can only imagine the base outside a major city, no raises (was told sell more to gain commission), paid on sales, growth, margin, & AR. Commission cap at 55% margin (if margin exceeded 55% you do not get paid on it even though you did the work to gain it), when customers don't pay their bills within net terms Fastenal takes it from your commission, if you do not grow vertically (year over year) it hits your pay check, you are given employees but they are paid nothing and turnover occurs which in the long run affects the manager, performance based compensation, "here do this with this" and when you reach or exceed their goals it's not enough "sell more", sales numbers and margin is tweeked at the end of the month to prevent additional commission being paid out (watch out they steal from you)

    Advice to Management

    let's take money from you and give you an under average base and see how hard you can work instead of pointing and crisscrossing at numbers
