    I worked at Ecolab for more than a year

    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 your perfect match. Competitive 401k, always a great time working with fellow field reps. Ecolab managers work hard and party hard. Ability to grow income annually. HTMs generally have less service requirements, more commission potential and realized earnings.

    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 contracts could earn you 5-figure commission months if it is a direct account or equipment is included. Or... you cold call and win new business like your life depended on it. Unfortunately the amount of Extra Service Requests you receive will not allow for much of this. Other cons: Must manage all work equipment at home. Company does NOT pay for your storage. Expect to spend $2-3K additional gas expenses on top of what they contribute. 70% equipment servicing + windshield time /// 25% Sales/business processes is a reasonable time estimate. TMs with mostly indirect accounts have difficulty projecting monthly sales budgets, as 75-80% of budgeted sales come from Sysco, US Foods or other distributor. Expect some 12 hour days and 60 hour weeks. On call 24/7 M-Th, 6-8 weekends per year ( with NO additional compensation). Don't expect to learn any equipment servicing specifics while at training in Eagan MN. They'll teach you how to sell new accounts and take care of your customers, not how to fix, replace or install equipment and machine components. Expect to get down and dirty regularly. Restaurant kitchens are disgusting. Hazardous working environment at times. Must be comfortable working with High voltage machinery and motors. Late nights/overnight often required for ESRs or machine installation. Expect 2-4 days/mo. Your fleet vehicle is your mobile office. Must keep it stocked with parts and organized.
