Ok Campany
Great company if you are located in USA, not a great company for competition based in Canada. Don't be fooled by the commision compensation. Unless you live in a remote area where you are the only company, you will never be able to sell products at a 50-60% margin and be competative. If you can't sell at the crazy high margins than you won't earn commision. If you don't make sales you will lose your job, so your base pay is really all you will earn, and you have to make sales at lower margins to make Fastenal money, but you wont earn any commision.

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.

Decent for experience, nothing more
Not a great company to work for if you are in Canada, especially in a big city like Calgary. Trucking routes are big in the states which lead to long lead times for us in Canada. It is also very difficult to be competitive with pricing. They preach all the potential earnings you could make in your commission check. However, it is near impossible to do this because you need a high margin and new business to do so. Instead you will most likely be faced with getting your commission check cut in half due to low margins to win business and make the company money. - I know, it doesn't make sense. Two weeks vacation, which is lower than average. Can't take it all together either or your customers will suffer. No coffee breaks, very low base salary, very high chance a low commission check, mediocre benefits.
Pros
Good people and management. You also get a pay check.
Cons
No coffee breaks, sometimes working through lunch, unpaid overtime since the company is too cheap to pay overtime hours, very low base salary with almost near impossible to have high commission checks, high turnover rates, very low vacation times, mediocre benefits
