    Corporate Position Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Paul, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Ecolab (Saint Paul, MN) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for an Ecolab job online and then reached out to someone in HR to see what else I could do to help me find a role that suited my skills and interests. I was contacted and given ideas for various roles and departments. Once I applied, I continued to reach out to hiring managers and finally landed a phone interview. If they want to move forward after the phone interview, they will schedule an in person interview with the hiring manager and a few other team members. I came to St. Paul for my interview and met with a few different people. It was a comfortable, private environment and the interviewers were very friendly and easy to talk to.

    Interview

    Good, they were very professional and vocal about the want to help their employees grow within the company. A very good company with many great benefits to grow with. There were 3 rounds, although I'm not sure if every Territory Rep position will go through the same process.

    Associate Regulatory Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ecolab (Chicago, IL) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview
    Scheduling was chaotic on their end. Cancel/reschedule/called an hour before scheduled time to confirm I would be there at scheduled time? Very strange.
    Job was different than advertised on Ecolab website. Interviewer from Minnesota was limited in details about the job and limited in technical ability to properly describe the job. Couldn't answer slightly technical questions about the job. Her behavior was flippant and unprofessional. I also felt she was just going through the motions and I just represent a quota to interview. Definitely not what I would expect from a world renowned company like Ecolab. As a professional Ecolab phone interview is a red flag on the company itself.
