Current Fastenal employee here. I'm looking to get a full time job and have applied to multiple positions through my district. Turned down for all and I've been a part timer working 35+ hours a week and have trained other part timers as well as our new osp in dealing with certain customers and showing them the ropes. I have a feeling my gm just wants to keep me here because I'm good at what I do. Unfortunately I am starting to look else where because I'm tired of this bs. They even gave a part timer I trained a full time job "because they were scared he'd leave" What do you suggest i do to get a full time job or scare my boss into knowing I'm leaving asap?Id just straight up tell him what you want. My DM did the same for an NA position. They were scared a good osp was going to quit so they handed him a NA job over more qualified people. This company is all about growth, and that includes growing the potential of employees. When I took GM I actually called my RVP before I spoke with my DM. My RVP made sure I got it. I am also leaving the company in 2 weeks as the stress that is ensured day to day is too much for too little pay. After 3 years I have realized Fastenal is really not the ideal place to work, long hours and low pay. If you're ruthless as *** you can make it but im really not. Best of luck to you man.
Hi. 2 questions: As you've expanded in product range over the years, would the majority of your revenue still come from the "I need this bolt/nut/small widget right now or my production line gets held up" category? How often do people know exactly what they are looking for, vs needing help in finding it?At least 40% of our revenue comes from fasteners sales in general. That covers walk in sales, small bulk sales right up to full on OEM production facility sales. I know fastenal holds a great number of national contracts with some big names throughout the USA, in the millions range. Walk in customers might amass 1% of that 40% This generally is 50/50. Regulars know their stuff but we do get a lot of people that just call or come in and just say "I need this". We often times, based on experience can figure it out. Sometimes you get the ones where we just have zero clue. At least if they can tell us what it goes to/ application we can narrow it down and source it. Problem is with the weird stuff we usually are forced to buy in bulk and people don't need 5000 of one item.
If I were to get a job working at a Fastenal in a nearby town, is there a future if I have no experience whatsoever?When I started working here, I was a dumb idiot, I didn't know a nut from a bolt..you don't need experience, just good character and the ability to win people over. It's sales, so as long as you can sell.
