"Physically and mentally the most demanding job I have ever held."

What do you like about working at Fastenal?

"Great educational opportunity for someone wanting to get into sales. Meeting new people and the challenge of product knowledge."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Try as hard as you can to find another job. Especially if your use to getting paid for your time. If you have no job experience, it's perfect. For Fastenal."

What don't you like about working at Fastenal?

"Terrible pay, both salary and commission. As well as terrible hours. You are expected to work a minimum of 10 hours but get paid less than the nations lowest average salary. By 10 hours I mean closer to 12 a day. My average hourly pay over the last 6 months has been $6.50 an hour, and I am in the top 3 salesman in district. You throw in the cheapest medical and dental care a company can buy and you have yourself a job at Fastenal."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Pay your employee's better, have better incentive programs for top performers, get better medical coverage and scrap your entire support system. Delegating some responsibilities you expect your front level guy's to carry would be beneficial as well to less turnover. Collections and accounting support to name a couple."
