    Route Sales Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 10 months - interviewed at Ecolab.

    Interview Details

    Quite Long ... Phone Interview, DM Interview if you pass phone interview. Ride along with rep (generally won't let you ride with experienced honest associates) where you are encouraged to ask questions and see if you think the job is for you. The RSM position is very mechanical versus sales. There is overtime (you don't get paid for that as Ecolab feels that because you get paid commision, you get paid 24/7/365.

    Interview Questions
    • There are no difficult or unexpected questions. You must have sales and mechanical experience. This is especially important for RSM as it is much more mechanical than sales. Most sales are already made for you.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Very little negotiation. Ecolab has an attitude that if you don't like it, we can find someone else.
