    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.

    I applied online and then received an email to have a phone interview about two weeks later. After the phone interview I did an internet test to make sure that my internet was fast enough for the job. When I was approved for that I received an email stating that they were interested in a face to face interview the following week. On the personal interview day, I interviewed with two individuals who went over the details of the job for about 5-10 minutes followed by a web interview with two individuals out of MN. I was hired on the spot!

    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Ecolab (Naperville, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was recruited by a staffing agency. I had a phone interview with the hiring manager and then was brought into the office for two hours of in-person interviews. There were three people who interviewed me in-person. Two of them were business partners, and the third was the hiring manager's manager. Overall, the process was smooth and they kept me in the loop. Declined the offer because they changed the title and pay initially stated.

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ecolab.

    Interview

    I applied online. I was sent an email couple days later for a phone interview to set up. The phone interview was roughly 15 to 25 minutes long. She asked basic questions of why you want to work for Ecolab what it is that you were looking for. They describe the position in detail. If you passed the phone interview then you move on to an on-site interview for roughly 30 minutes. The first 15 minutes will be with the recruitment/hr reps and the other half Will be with actual supervisors in the department. They hopefully inform you of when they're going to let you know when you got the position. I received a call couple days later. It all went smoothly.
