    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied through Indeed and got an email the next day to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview was two days later and was quickly and efficiently passed on to the area manager who called me the next day for an in person interview. Drug test, physical and background check through GSI was the longest part, but took about two weeks from start to hire date. I was happy with the company and their ability to move the process along.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ecolab (Saint Paul, MN) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Two telephonic interviews. Followed by on site interview schedule on Thursday afternoon for next day on Friday evening. They do not provide travel and parking expense for interview. No wonder they are profitable.

    Associate District Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Ecolab (Pleasanton, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview with recruiter, and was contacted on the same day with the hiring manager. A face to face interview was scheduled the following week. The interview was more unconventional and was more scenario based. The District Manager was more interested in trying to find out my personality type and my reason to make specific decisions. The following day I was scheduled to meet the Area Manager for a sit down dinner interview. The conversation was again more scenario based and to get to know if I was a good overall fit for the position. Overall the interview process was much different then traditional interview settings. Between the initial phone screen to the day of the verbal offer was 2 weeks. Start date would be around 2 weeks from formal written offer.

    Interview Questions

    • If you are new to the position and a service tech was constantly late to his/her service appointment how would you proceed to attempt to correct the issue?

      How long would you give the service tech until he/she improves or determine termination? What are the steps you would take as you evaluate the person?

    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.
