      Pros

      I worked for Fastenal as a part time employee and really enjoyed it. The store allowed me to develop teamwork skills, and my co-workers were great.

      Cons

      Some of the companies that we worked for had some rude employees.

      It depends on your management and location

      Pros

      Decentralized work environment. Generally easy work... Basically communicating with people and knowing how to count to 100 and basic computer skills.... Overall good professional working experience that makes you a better communicator. Can lead to a stable, not great, (see cons) job if you want to move up in a sales environment. Part-timers are usually vetted with this opportunity to move to full time which can lead to more advancement if you are an intentional worker.

      Cons

      Managers and corporates are type A people that are hungry for their own commission. Good ol' boy/ frat boy culture... so gentlemen and ladies probably won't enjoy. Everyone that is a specialist and some managers think they are the "stuff" and are actually just the adults that didn't apply themselves in college or didn't go and this is the best they can do. you don't make commission if you are part-time and you do the hardest labor for the guy that makes all the money... and generally doesn't really do any work at all. You will get tired of part-time for that above reason, so unless you are working your way up in a sales environment, I wouldn't recommend this as side work.

      Good job to learn the business

      Pros

      I’ve worked for fastenal 3 years. (2 years part time, 1 full) I have started out as a sales associate and will most likely be moving into more of a full one sales role. Starting as a sales associate is the best way to learn the very large product line that fastenal has to offer. If you work hard you will be rewarded, that’s the nature of sales.

      Cons

      Low base pay. Sometimes you can get stuck with a bad General Manager which can stunt your growth with the company

      Pros

      It is a great company to get good experience in the business world and specifically the world of sales. If you are a hard-worker and show detection there is opportunities to move up in the company. They also work around your schedule if you are still in school.

      Cons

      The starting pay for a part time employee is low.
