    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.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you keep yourself going or busy in a stagnant position?
      Describe a time you went above and beyond to provide customer service and how did you get rewarded after that?

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Ecolab (Saint Paul, MN) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for an Ecolab job online and then reached out to someone in HR to see what else I could do to help me find a role that suited my skills and interests. I was contacted and given ideas for various roles and departments. Once I applied, I continued to reach out to hiring managers and finally landed a phone interview. If they want to move forward after the phone interview, they will schedule an in person interview with the hiring manager and a few other team members. I came to St. Paul for my interview and met with a few different people. It was a comfortable, private environment and the interviewers were very friendly and easy to talk to.
