    Applications Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    No Offer
    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.

    Remote Customer Service Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Naperville, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ecolab (Naperville, IL).

    Interview

    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!

    Supply Chain Management Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    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.
