I worked at Fastenal (Less than a year)

Pros

The materials in their training program are really informative and I think the interactive training modules are really helpful. Opportunity to advance in the company. Work in Sales and drive the company truck to meet with clients. Working part-time gives a flexible schedule. Decentralized company so it is like you own your own branch, but all branches have access to a wide network of corporate assistance.

Cons

Advancement opportunity can mean moving to another store or city. Sometimes boring and unfulfilling..

    Pros

    The 5 day work week is nice. The work is not difficult. They are financially solid, so there are no worries about vendors not accepting orders or payroll issues. Great way to build contacts in many different fields.

    Cons

    Just like any company, it comes down management. If you have the right manager(s), its much better. Pricing can be high on some items making it more difficult to sell those products. 50 hour weeks and low pay rates make it difficult to retain good employees.

    Advice to Management

    Improve distribution. Waiting for 1 to 2 weeks for product is unacceptable. Competitors are delivering within a couple of days.
