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

    Pros

    I worked at Fastenal while I was finishing my last semester of college, with plans to go to full time once I had graduated.

    I had the advantage of working under a great manager at a growing branch. Lots to learn and do. There's some initial computer training but most of it was hands on. My manager and fellow members of the sales team were all friendly and always willing to help me with any question I had while learning product, systems, etc. My manager was easily approachable for anything and made working here a very enjoyable experience for me.

    Cons

    I had no complaints at my branch but I heard from employees at other locations that things weren't always great. It seems that that a good branch manager can make or break the experience for everyone working under them.

    Pros

    Corporate structure, good training, fair benefits, clear paths to advancement within organization

    Cons

    Some micromanagement issues. Bonus program spread too thin not based on sales but on forecasting and relative to previous yrs sales ect. Makes sense but would like to see bonus that reflects directly the hard work out into making sales
