Fastenal Employee Review

Good

Good work Envirnoment. Wonderful staff. Would continue to work for them but am moving. Not much room to grow unless you're willing to relocate to where there is positions available.

Same role

blah blah

Very poorly run management gives very little direction and allows things to get out of control when the customers needs should be met consistently and with more professionalism

Pros

free hat & tshirt

Cons

poor pay

Same role

depend on the location But real nice place to work

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.

Same location

Not a good place to work.

The pay does not match the work you have to do. The commission matrix is such that you will work harder year after year to make less. Commission is paid primarily on growth (new accounts only) but all the existing customer sales pay out much less yet there is still a lot of selling and account managing to be done to maintain your client base. Overall, stock at the store level is very low and cannot accommodate emergency client orders. They also make you do a 5 week brainwashing training in Winona MN at their HQ with little to no allowance if you are going to be a GM. They don't offer the proper tools and equipment to safely do your job. Very cheap company. Not worth it at all.

Pros

None

Cons

Too many to list.
