Great work place good stuff to work with . Gave me the opportunity to become a manager to hire new empolyees organize work schedules and plan delivery routes. Hardest part of the job is managing students who are not 100% dedicated to workplace being so young and uncertain with there career. Fastenal very Understanding and flexible with my kids school schedule . Great job security but unfortunately no room to advance to better your future .

Pros

Understanding with having a family

Cons

No room for advancement

Great people

Loved the people but like all corporations you are a body and that is it. Both good and bad management and when you get the good it's great when you get the bad you look to leave.

False Hopes/Entry Position is Terrible

Being with Fastenal in Cambridge for a year... Stuck as part time as it's their entry position... Been promised multiple times a full-time position... Never does it appear. Without that you can't make commission, you don't get bonuses, there's no salary, only 30 hours a week, and no benefits... It's "OK" if you have another job I suppose, but if you're looking for any possible type of career it's no good. The job itself isn't too bad I guess. I make the same amount of money as the new/old warehouse workers... Which is infuriating and degrading to me as I have SO much responsibility/stress to deal with. Whereas the several warehouse workers that stock shelves, pick orders, and clean have no stress and minimal responsibility... Yet they get the same pay as me and sometimes even more hours than me if they have lots of receive/pick, etc. All in all, the people who do the interviews mislead the job itself and don't believe in promotions as "the company already pays you enough" to begin with... In their words, not mine. So in order to get a promotion, you need to obtain fulltime which is next to impossible. I've seen many people come and go in my time there as well as heard stories from the past. Quite the turnover rate.

Pros

What pros? I suppose a Dodge truck you can drive around in from time to time.

Cons

No breaks or lunches, have a granola bar in your pocket to eat whilst working if you get hungry...

Management is self centered

Great staff and coworkers. Manager doesn't care about your growth or development. Always to busy to train you or answer questions but spends all day talking to staff.

Pros

Coworkers

Cons
