Great place to work and quality staff
Sales Support (Former Employee) – Abbotsford BC – 14 March 2014
Amazing structure, excellent training protocol, established USA brand but great potential for growth in Canada. Helped establish new monthly sales record for local Fastenal branch. Always able to work on the store, displays and quotations. I learned how the planogram, re shelf, re procurement system worked, and was amazed at how much information was available for customer sourcing and service. Procurement for on time delivery a bit difficult without a Canadian distribution center to pull from. Liked the manager and outside sales department. Hardest part of the job was trying to do things the Fastenal Way, as opposed to previous procedures from other industrial companies I'd worked for. Recognition from corporate was excellent and District Management involvement helped us know what was coming up and what was going on.
Good pay structure and bonus platform
Local management more interested in advancement than growth as a team
