Work & Life Balance


Store Manager in Fairfax, VA
on July 13, 2019
Lots of learning, then turnover
Fastenal is a great place to start out working. They will invest a lot of time and money into teaching you how to be a smart business or sales person. However, the pay could be more competitive, and consequently they have a lot of turnover. I've stuck around because I like the people and it is a pretty casual atmosphere.
Sales Suppoert in Green Bay, WI
on November 21, 2020
My experience here included answering phone calls and helping the few people that would walk in. Just a typical customer service type job. Lots to learn if you don't know the product and training was not helpful for me. I did not stay long.

Don’t work here
Great for experience but that’s it. They literally have their own website undercut you then try to have you sell it as customer service. Amazon is cheaper in everything
Sales Support in Ottawa

Low stress. Worked well as a temporary job
I was at the bottom of the totem pole, so my responsibilities weren't overly difficult.Warehouse and delivery work was well laid out by my manager, and was easy and stress-free.Filling in for sales wasn't great, as I didn't have the authority to make decisions that were important for that aspect of the job.

Flexible place to work. Beginning is the hardest part after understanding the supplies job becomes easy
I worked here part time as a student and my manger and coworkers were good. The company culture and how they interact with the store in general is a huge fault in the company

About construction things

Shared on June 18, 2020

Experience, the schedule being fine, can you handle up to 75lbs, can you work weekends and overtime (careful here because it's not true overtime) when needed. Small talk
