Territory Representative Interview

Average Interview

Application

The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ecolab.

Interview

Phone screening. Face to face interview. Ride-a-long with current employee. First two steps were basic, simple behavioral questions and experience questions. Had to reach out after two weeks of no communication after the face to face interview. Manager set up the ride-a-along. Employee was very nice and easy to talk to, overall went very well. Let the manager know how it all went and was told I'd be let know when a decision was made. A month and a half later I was notified by a talent agent that I wasn't selected. Overall I felt very lost during the whole process. Extreme lack of communication by manager and hiring team. Seems like a good company, just a bad experience for myself.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Ecolab in March 2012.

    Interview

    Thorough interview process including a ride along. This is a great opportunity to see how the job works and the added opportunity to ask questions with individuals in the field, and not a managers view of the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Ecolab in September 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online through a job search engine and was called within a few days by HR to set up a phone interview. I completed the phone interview with the HR representative within a week of applying. It took three to four weeks before I was called back to schedule an in-person 1:1 interview. The 1:1 interview was more about learning about the position rather than doing much talking. The final round was a ride-along experience with one of the representatives in the field to see how the work is actually done. I was advised that asking questions during the ride-along was good and showed that you are interested in the position.
