    Their recruiter in Minneapolis reached out to me and in the matter of about two weeks we scheduled an in person interview at the facility. The interview was held with 4 people on the team including the TPM Manager, an Engineer, and HR, and Production Supervisor. It took about 3 hours from start of finish. About a week later you scheduled a skype type interview with the plant manager.

    Applications Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ecolab (Salt Lake City, UT) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Phone Interview. Classic HR screening looking for silly ways to eliminate you as a candidate. I've never understood why HR thinks that the best candidates are the ones who are layed off (the bottom 10%?). Or those still employed - similar to the strategy of only dating people who are already married. I gave reasons for why I was let go, and there was no attempt at understanding. The HR lady was looking for 'worker bee' type of employees, with the unreasonable expectation of absolute altruism to the company - when companies don't provide the same in return (not even close). In addition to this, she violated executive order 13665 by telling me that she was taking it into to her own hands to exclude me from consideration because my salary was higher my previous job. Again, short-sighted HR, ignoring all other considerations to focus on reasons to exclude candidates.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Ecolab in January 2017.

    Interview

    Met recruiters at an engineering convention. Had on interview the next day at the convention. Had to take a test online. 3 phone/skype interviews with different engineering managers at different locations a couple weeks after. After the 3 interviews I was never contacted back to hear whether or not I got the job. It has been four months so I assume there is no offer but it would have still been nice to hear back from them.
