It's just a job
PT Sales Support (Former Employee) –  Chatham-Kent, ON3 October 2013
I worked there for about 6 weeks. Quite a joke. The other people in the store I was at were sending customers to the competitor. They really didn't know what they were doing to try to grow a business. Shotty training. No real support. Poor management. They are just looking for people who can talk to a brick wall in the hopes that your kindness will make them a repeat customer. Oh and customer wasn't always right.

Although if you are extremely outgoing and want a PT job at $15 an hour, then it would be alright.
Pros
Very laid back, although that made the day go by slowly
Cons

General Manager (Former Employee) –  Airdrie, AB7 November 2017
Fastenal provides opportunities to those who are willing to work hard. They provide good technical training to assist new employees in adapting to the MRO market. Sales training is on going and there are many resources at your finger tips to help people succeed. The operating system is pretty straight forward.
Inventory and delivery times can be an issue as many items need to be ordered from warehouses in the US.
