Fastenal Company Culture
Frontier Settlers – Challenging
Like the Founding Fathers or a game of Oregon Trail on an old-school Macintosh computer, the Frontier Settlers offer a traditional work environment in which only the strong survive. Believing that it is not only in numbers, but also in unity, that a reat strength lies, this bunch offers hierarchical employment structure in which all employees are united by a consistent, overarching mission. Rules are meant to be kept here, and the one that the Frontier Settlers place as their topmost priority is that of collaboration and team spirit. Blazing a trail isn’t a walk in the park, though, and this nurturing and cooperation-oriented bunch necessarily promotes utmost pragmatism, thoroughness, and organization in their working style. Those who can’t efficiently change a wheel axel or are prone to dysentery need not apply. Putting leadership and individual excellence on a pedestal, this branch of the Frontier Settlers is likely to get a one way ticket to the moon. Celestial expansion isn’t for the weak: those daring enough to get on board need to be independent and self-driven ‘jacks of all trades’. In return, they will be offered a stimulating work environment in which learning opportunities are limitless.
About the Company
Since 1967, Fastenal has grown from a single store to more than 2,700 locations, each providing tailored local inventory and personal service for our customers. As we’ve expanded across the world, we’ve retained a core belief in people and their abil ty to accomplish remarkable things – if given the opportunity. From this philosophy stems an entrepreneurial culture that challenges every employee to run their own business, create their own success, and rise up to become company leaders. Backed by our global sourcing, quality, and logistics operations, each store is a local, one-stop source for a spectrum of OEM, MRO and Construction supplies. Working within our decentralized environment, store personnel take a flexible approach to support local customers – sourcing products, making emergency deliveries, managing a lean flow of inventory to points of use, and leveraging our services, solutions and specialists to drive continual business improvements. Local product and local people: these are the cornerstones of our value proposition. So when you hear us talk about our thousands of stores, remember that we’re not talking about how big we are; we’re talking about how local we are. And that’s what Fastenal is all about – using our corporate resources to be the best local supplier in every market we serve.
