I worked at Ecolab

Pros

good benefits, company car, 401k, base salary, good group of guys to work with locally and that can be important

Cons

going away from service in a service based industry. Bonus dollars and income growth is becoming limited. Over priced on "street business" and the distributor pricing structure is hard to justify to the customers at times. Company likes to rotate customers to other reps in the metro areas and that causes problems. Overloading customers with product and spare parts and letting the next rep deal with the upset customers, its really too bad.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

retain more business and that much more will be there at the end of year.

    If you like putting in 70+hours a week and not being appreciated by your immediate supervisors look into Ecolab.

    Pros

    If the company ever returns to the customer oriented company it once was, while starting to respect and value its workforce again, it will have many reasons to be a great place to work.

    Cons

    No matter how much you excell, no matter how much you sell, no matter how much you are loyal to the company, management is never satisfied. Always wanting more to the point of disrespecting the workforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Area Managers, some District managers need to realize how many true hours are put into the sales part of Ecolab. Stop taking snapshots of reports and making unfounded judgements of the time that is spent conducting our jobs. As of late morale is through the floor boards and many will leave when the economy picks up.

    Pros

    Some job freedom in that you get to do what you want.

    Cons

    The company throws you in and expects you to know every answer to possibe situation that arises when it comes to you and your customers operations. Be aware that you will be expected to babysit all of your customers needs by doing everything from fixing invoice problems, wiring dish machines, setting up returns, delivering product to them when they forgot to order products to get them through the weekend all while being expected to SELL, SELL, SELL! This job is posted as a sales job but you quickly find out that you are just a service man with a tie. Oh yeah you are expected to wear slacks and a tie all while crawling under dish machines, sitting in puddles of water and cutting copper tubing. You are also expected to meet ridiculous sales numbers and are threatened with your job and intimidated when you are not meeting those numbers. You will never feel more worthless and helpless than you do with this job. Most of us are smart guys/girls but are never given the opportunity to shine because most likely you will get little to zero training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work as a TM again to see what it is like.
