Student & Recent Graduates


Are you looking to get hands-on work experience while still going to school? We understand that classes are your number one priority, which is why we offer flexible work schedules. It’s an opportunity to help pay for your education, get a great feel for our company and culture, and potentially transition to a full-time career upon graduation.


Would you like to apply what you’ve learned in school to the real business world? By starting your career as a full-time sales trainee, you’ll have the opportunity to learn and grow with us. This program is designed to provide new employees with the training and preparation needed to develop into a successful Outside Sales Person. You’ll learn the operational functions of a store while developing the knowledge and skills necessary to build strong relationships with customers. Offered through our corporate university, this program includes hands-on and instructor-led classroom training.

A Core Belief in People

“Fastenal is an organization that really believes in people – that people can do great things, if they are given a chance.”

“We don’t go out searching for people with five years experience, but rather people that really believe in themselves and are willing to work hard and develop themselves, with our help, into very successful employees.”

Bob Kierlin, Fastenal Founder
