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

Pros

Good compensation, freedom to drive business yourself. The company has a good reputation and looks great on a resume. You can learn about many different facets of business and construction.

Cons

Little training, lots of tiny screws and other inventory to count, management only cares about increased sales. My manager was fired the first week I arrived.

Advice to Management

I had a summer job there, maybe not enough experience to say about upper management. Store managers seemed to not feel like they had the tools to succeed and meet goals.

    Advice to Management

    Remember how you made your money on stock options and that's why you were willing to work a lot of hours at a lower salary? You can't take the stock options away from everyone and expect them to work like you did at the wages you did.
