    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Ecolab.

    Interview

    First contact/interview was through a job fair. Second interview over the phone with district manager. Third interview in person with district manager. Then rode along for a day with a current employee. HR phone interview, then hot/cold contact with district manager for 2 months. Lots of delayed or altogether broken promises. Overall, interview/process seemed neverending, but the kicker was the lack of common courtesy in telling me straight-up when they were going to make up their minds and sticking to their promises. I'd have to say I'm disappointed with the people, and I'm glad I saw their true colors before ever having the chance to with for them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ecolab (Asheville, NC) in September 2011.

    Interview

    I applied via Indeed.com for a Territory Sales position. I had a phone interview, which led to an interview with a District Manager and a Regional Director. The phone interview was pretty typical--why are you interested in Eco Lab, what experience do you have, etc. The panel interview was rather informal and went well. I was one of 3-4 candidates. I specifically asked at the close of the interview if I would be notified of the decision regardless of outcome. I was told by the DM that he would be back in touch personally in the next 3 days (a Friday). Friday came and went and there was no word, I let it go until Monday afternoon and contacted the DM ( I made sure I got his card and number). He was out so I left a message. A couple more days passed with no word. I sent an e-mail to him--no response. I sent a follow up e-mail and copied the Regional Director. I finally got an e-mail from the DM after that, at which point he informed me they chose someone else and he stated that he never said he'd get back to me. He also stated that apparently I was not interested in being part of his "development bench" since I was so impatient with him. Not a good finish to an otherwise promsing interview.
