the hours are good for family life
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

Poor compensation
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.

No breaks or lunches. You are an employee number easily replaced.
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.

Love working here
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.

Bad culture
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

Mean and aggressive to their employees
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

Sales associate - part time
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

Don't listen to their lies about how great pay it is
It's not a great place to work it does have its benefits. Driving a company truck. Salary isn't great but you always feel like you are in danger of losing your job.
Pros
Company truck

Good opportunity for change and advancement
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.

Good place
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.

Face paced, positive work environment
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.

Poor management
Management is not very good, DM’s don’t listen to employees only to managers which is wrong as how can you talk about your manager habits to your manager.

good workplace with good people
I sorted Boxes into pallets. I learned teamwork, initiative, and hard work while employed here. The management is good. The most enjoyable part of working here was the coworkers.

Work ,work work good for high school graduate and drop out and those not intending to go to university.
Poor structure and greedy gm and bm . No commission have what you to work and drop dead. Run away if you can . No overtime once you are about exceeding 20 or 30 hours per week of part-time they will find a way out themselves.

Very unprofessional
Absolutely the worse company I ever worked for. No management was ever in the store. Unexsperienced employees left to run the entire store including opening and closing of the store. Product was always late and never on time for customers. Completely unprofessional for a large company. Worked long days but was only compensated for 8 hours. It's know surprise there closing stores everywhere.

If I could give them zero stars I would
DM is horrible, GM isn’t any better. I wouldn’t recommend this company to ANYONE!!! Stay far away. Had loads of problems, they lied about things I wasn’t even doing to terminate my employment after they got caught trying to falsify my time sheets because they didn’t want to pay me for overtime.
