      I worked at Ecolab full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Company has great benefits and loved my co-workers. Employee moral was very important to everyone.

      Cons

      Management doesn't always appreciate all the work being accomplished. Interns where more important than management staff. Management sometimes overlooked and made interns in a authoritative role.

      Advice to Management

      Interns should not be in charge when a whole team of management staff is available. Degrading the management team.

      I worked at Ecolab for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Great company success, job security and leadership. Industry competitors simply cannot match Ecolab's innovation and market penetration. Ecolab truly is everywhere it matters. District Managers are the lifeblood of institutional division, and will do their very best to help you succeed. If you like working independently, driving 400-1000 miles per week and are a results driven, self motivated individual, this may be...

      Cons

      Little work/life balance. Your success, compensation, and overall experience is largely determined by the territory you work in and how much time you're able to spend away from home. Territory size and $ volume varies dramatically, and could be the difference between driving 5-15 hours a week, or 30-40. Territories with primarily Warewashing accounts do not consistently produce large commission, unless... new corporate...

      Advice to Management

      Give clearer expectations of service and drive time during interview process. Must provide additional compensation for weekend coverage, ESPECIALLY when a TM or RSM is covering for a vacant territory or route. Provide managers with better accessibility of web-based applications and equipment ordering systems. Start new reps with all the equipment they will need for ALL of the machinery and company equipment...

      I worked at Ecolab part-time

      Pros

      Pay was ok Benefits were great and offered to PT Management worked with another job that I had Advancement or opportunities to learn were available to me Remote position was awesome

      Cons

      Unfortunately I had to leave because of technology issues being remote when I moved. Wish they offered on site opportunities because I loved the company. Department used an unrealistic rating system for calls that were Used against you for your yearly review. Customers call to complain so you have to deal with that.
