    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Ecolab full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    * Company provided vehicle that goes home with you and a gas card
    * Decent benefits package

    Cons

    * Work/Life balance?? Almost non existent
    * Long days (12+ hours) not even including drive time (which can be up to 2 hours)
    * Vacations are not really vacations as you must complete ALL the same work (plus new customers) and you have less time to do it
    * Bonuses are achieved only by meeting sales numbers & schedule numbers BUT managers dictate your schedule based on "customer needs" ; which is an excuse not to pay bonuses
    * Weekends are a pain specifically because as customers can call at anytime of the day as opposed to M-F when its only a set time frame
    * Safety is preached but never practiced when it comes to employees personal safety; if they really wanted safe, they would allow employees some rest & proper time off

    Advice to Management

    Ease the workload. Working 60+ hours and travel time make for unsafe work conditions and unhappy employees. Unhappy employees means we are gonna end up quitting

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Ecolab full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Paid pretty well for the market
    Grand Forks employees were great to work with

    Cons

    Hours and scheduling were terrible
    Management from St Paul appeared to care, but only after they decided to shut down the building. If that level of commitment was there before deciding to let go hundreds of employees, trust would have never been an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Tell your other departments that you plan on closing now! Don't wait until you hire people and then in two months tell them they will be losing their job. You are messing with people's lives here. It is a good idea to consolidate, but it is shady and borderline illegal to hire people with the knowledge you will be letting them go shortly.
