    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed 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.

    Senior IT Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Paul, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Ecolab (Saint Paul, MN) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Horrible process and even after outstanding feedback from hiring manager no response later. Even after multiple follow-ups there was no response. They should have the courtesy to let the candidate know what they are no longer interested. Horrible experience. Others should be wary of specific timeline of when the next steps would be taken and when they expect to hear back, if at all.

    Interview

    Phone interview or two, and then meeting with supervisor and/or team you would be working for. It will sometimes take a while for the phone interview and initial contact to take place.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Don't sell yourself short. Ask what you are worth in the Marketplace. Start high and then negotiate. If you start low, you will just be hurting yourself.
