A typical day includes receiving products, managing inventory and delivering products to customers. The management is good and always ensures workers are properly coordinating. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to connect and grow with customers in your area. Co-workers help create a positive work environment to help time pass.

very normal, low progress, mostly like a retail job, depends on the branch manager that how is your experience, NO SPECIAL SKILLS OR EDUCATION NEEDED for this job. The managers usually just have the experience and no management skills
Pros
proper salary compare to the job and skills needed
Cons
Weak management skills, slow environment

Very negative experience. Cut throat and full of lies. If you need a job for the sake of having a job they arw flexible but the pay is bad and no benefits. Management only cares about themselves and will tell you what you want to hear while takong advantage of you and your health. Dont stay for long and if you wish to move up in the company, then swallow your morals
Pros
Flexible
Cons

Management is very knowledgeable at the location I was at but as for co-workers, its drama central. I was ridiculed and was told I wasn't good enough. The manager was super. He was nice and accommodating. I wouldn't bother working at either location in Saskatoon. The guys at the 60th location are idiots and always lose stuff. The company is cheap.
Pros
Pay is decent
Cons
Too much drama and gossip

Corporate greed at its worst sums up fastenal. They don't care about their employees, only executive bonuses and shareholders. Do not expect a raise, ever. You have to fight for every dime at this place. The hours are long and they expect you to work unpaid overtime. The salary is mediocre and the days are long. Just hope for good coworkers to get you through the day.
Pros
No weekends
Cons
Everything else

All the branches are not the same, it depend on the GM. If you have a General Manager close to the team you will have a great time with Fastenal. Higher management is great too.

I really enjoyed the flexibility they offered with scheduling. Proper training and they always have courses you can take to become better at your job and more knowledgeable. Management was great. I had to leave because they cut hours before and after Christmas. So if you work for them make sure you have money set aside for December and January. This is the only company I know makes itnharder on staff to get by during chrostmas

Culture which doesn't reward hard work over how well you suck up to your boss. Biggest waste of time was working for thos company. I watched a guy get handed not only a mamagers job, but 2 years later become a district manager when he wasnt actually qualified,but he had a good relationship with his higher up my manager was part time until everyone in the branch quit, then she was5handed the manager job which she never had the ability.

Constantly under staffed as they will only hire part time and usually students. Management is abrasive with very little empathy. Did not take more then 3-4 lunches/ breaks in a 3 year period. Very hard to balance work/home life. Pay is well below the industry average. They do tend to promote from within but have a very fast employee turn over.

A typical day at Fastenal is energetic and always surprising. The people in this company strive to work in a team-spirited environment. I enjoy sorting the products to their designated places. The hardest part of this job is when there are lesser colleagues available and production needs to be steady.

the company is good but they tend to just put a warm body in a position just to fill it rather than taking the time to find the right one for the job!
Pros
monday to friday
Cons
people in positions that are not qualified

I would not recommend working here. They don't care about you and will overwork you. If you try to leave they will try to guilt trip you. Also they don't care about their customers, only their money

They are mean to their employees. They also wont follow the Ontario disability act. They will purposely make you work over 45 hours a week but not bumb you up to fulltime so they wont have to pay out benefits
Pros
Weekends off
Cons

Great for people with family obligations. They offer part time, during the week, no nights, no weekends. They are really open to offer job upgrades within the company itself

Fastenal provides equal opportunity to those who wish to advance in a variety of areas, and the chance to move for work if the positions are open. The managers are also willing to assist you in learning and advancing within your branches.

It is overall a good place to work, however it is not for everyone. It is a challenging environment. In order to get good salary you need to work very hard and do overtime. A standard week is 45 hours.

Everyone works as a team and are very easy to get along with, It was like a second family. Busy from the time you clock in to the time you clock out! Always something to keep yourself busy! The only down fall is it takes a while to get a full time position.
