Industrial Supplies Salesperson in Acheson, AB

Enjoyed working there
I loved my time at Fastenal. The branch manager was willing to let me work a "floating" part time shift around my husband's schedule as long as I got my hours in and my work done. Truly loved the position and the people.

A fast paced workplace where heavy lifting is required. Stand still and you're yelled at, work slow and you're yelled at. Showing kindness in a work environment such as this one won't get you anywhere either.

Internal Promotion and a strong inclusion environment
In almost every department it's about working together as opposed to working "for"...The founder has 10 rules of leadership and they involve things like "Suppress your ego""Challenge Rather than Control"Most managers work according to those rules and let good people do good things.

Not a good place to work
If you ask for a raise they either tell you come back at the end of the quarter or that there is a hiring freeze. If you want to make mediocre money this is the job for you. If you want to be able to say you're proud of your employer, don't apply here.
