    I have been working at Fastenal part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I has good starting pay and you get to work up to higher pay if you can excel. You have to be good at selling and the harder you work, you will get rewarded.

    Cons

    You gotta push and show that you're wanted and needed in the company to get more hours, but that's just like any job that has positive coworker competition.

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

    Pros

    Consistent schedule...fair benefits...no expectation of additional work outside of work day.

    Cons

    No raises in my department; workload distributed unevenly; pay scale within department varies significantly.

    Advice to Management

    Weigh the options of granting a raise to dependable, talented employees versus losing the employees to a more competitive role.

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

    Pros

    401k and health insurance were great.

    Cons

    Sales teams were at the mercy of corporate pay calculator changes. Commission checks could change over night. Pay would be docked for customers not paying bills, even if you cut the customer off until the bill was cleared.

    Advice to Management

    Quit changing the commission calculator.
