    Territory Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Ecolab in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    I personally did an internship before being hired full time by the company. Usually a typical interview process will go through the district manager and if they think you are a good fit you will go on a ride along for a day to see what a "typical" day will look like.
