Receiver – Fastenal

Part Time


Fastenal takes pride in the fact that we primarily promote from within. What does this mean? Almost every leader within Fastenal began their journey on the Blue Team somewhere part-time in one of our over 3,200 branches/on-site locations or at one of our fifteen distribution centers.



As a part-time receiver you will be responsible for taking items off our trucks and storing them in our facility. This employee will be trained in inventory and order accuracy, handling packing slips, and lean distribution in a warehouse environment, which are skills highly valued in the industry. We provide forklift training to our employees no matter the experience level; however, any previous experience working in this type of environment or using a forklift will be beneficial in this role.



Working as Part-Time Receiving, you will help facilitate the movement of product throughout our distribution center. When inventory arrives at the
HUB location, you will verify the product and quantity delivered. Then you will prepare the product to move to the next department, product handling.
This is an entry level position based out of our distribution center located at 940 W. Wilbeth Rd., Akron, OH 44314.
