    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Ecolab (Brisbane (Australia)) in February 2013.

    Started with informal question about my experiences and how I detail my roles for each job. Very relaxing and calming but asking some behavioral questions tailored to my job experiences was a bit difficult.

    Route Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Ecolab.

    Interview

    Refered, applied online, took test, one on one, HR interview.
    The process was lengthy and slow. For one to be hired here one must need 2 to 3 months set aside. No one looking for an immiate job will have the time to go through the process. Many times interviews are done ahead of need and mo this can go by before being called to be part of the team

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ecolab in August 2014.

    Interview

    It was a complete joke. There was zero communication between the various departments. It is very obvious it's a god ole boys network. Human Resources was completely clueless. The only reason in which HR was involved was because they wanted to feel important. This was the exact words out of the Regional Managers mouth.

    Financial Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Paul, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Ecolab (Saint Paul, MN) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed through a college career fair and was selected to go to Ecolab's career day in Saint Paul. This consisted of a tour of the R&D center as well as three half hour long interviews with finance managers. The managers were very rude and not helpful in providing information and details about the position. Very negative experience and not a company I would recommend working for at all. I was very excited about the opportunity until I attended the career day. Ecolab tries to convey a very positive image of their company.

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Paul, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ecolab (Saint Paul, MN) in April 2014.

    Interview

    It's a lengthy process from the time you interview to the time you get hire on. Ecolab likes to have the candidate interview with 5 different people on the same day. Each person that you interview with asked different questions and serve a different purpose. Be prepare and sound sincerely in your answers.
