Lead Engineer (Current Employee) – Eagan – 8 May 2014
Overall cleaning and sanitation industry is a commodity. Ecolab stands out as a service driven organization therefore it is a good organization for those who are seeking in the Sales department, maybe also Marketing. R&D investment is small, less than 1% of Ecolab revenue, showing innovation is not a focus. Management in R&D acts like marketing and sales roles without indepth understanding of technology.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 8 August 2017
The company has a pretty good job culture and has good potential for growth and advancement. Management is quiet supportive. A typical day at work required performing many SAP processes using computer, filing, creating databases and spreadsheets
Sales Development Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 29 May 2017
the company itself is very large which means there's plenty of opportunities to advance. in the sales role the hours are flexible but extremely long if you want to be successful. the pay is okay for the amount of hours you work and the benefits are decent.
Cost Analyst (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 19 April 2017
When I started, things were really disorganized and I was able to use my strong computer skills to ensure the monthly statements and analysis were prepared. The hardest part of the position was that there was no procedures documented.
Territory Manager (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 21 January 2017
Little support from management in Edmonton market. Coworkers were eager to help as they are in the same boat of being on call 24 hrs a day, Area manager was disconnected as some workers during my tenure there were lazy and their territories were in terrible shape and when i was on call on weekends for the entire Edmonton area (10 times a year 24 hrs a day) you worked your butt off. In the neglected territories no less. Lots of turnover as the company has difficulty retaining people. Money was poor as the start salary is 44K a year. I was Presidents Club twice and was refused a transfer because a lazy boss stood in my way.
Freedom and a boss that is out of touch. Dead end job
Pest Control Technician (Former Employee) – Ontario – 23 October 2016
This company has the worst management. You will get zero support and will be expected to work day and night. Only work here if you are very desperate for a job. Then get trained and move on as fast as you can!
Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 5 October 2016
Comfortable workplace, friendly staff, good salary, good location, easy access. While working at Ecolab I learned that a good relationship with your supervisor, and coworkers is the key to a successful and healthy work environment.
Route Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 April 2016
long days have a lot of different machines that you stock parts for some of the new field staff are inexperienced so some days were challenging helping them fix machines. The rest of the guys were great and and we would help each other out. I will not comment on the management. Thats a private conversation
Gérant de Territoire (Former Employee) – Quebec City, QC – 9 March 2016
Ecolab was a great job for the first 3 years of employement. After making budget for 3 consecutive years, I had multipule problems with alocation of sales to my accounts. Management did not help after numerous attempts to rectify the situation by myself. They then used this reason to cut my employement. My 4th year I had 97% sales. During my 5th year I was at 91%, and my missing sales would maybe not have put me at 100%, but very close.
Territory Manager (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 25 February 2016
One stayed busy from morning to night. Besides daily, weekly and monthly work plans and scheduling the on call 24/7 for service maintenance was a requirement. Monthly budgets and annual budgets were also a requirement. The hardest part of the job was to be interrupted during family time and have to go on an emergency service call. I learned with this company how to manage not only my time but the customers needs. I could only sell what I believe in and my job was to ensure use cost was the important ingredient to save money with this program and products for the customer. The traveling was fun and I managed to enjoy the trips and scenery as I enjoy driving.
Good pay, good benefits and not trapped in an office
24/7 emergency on call and no weekends or evenings ever free unless vacation.
The best company I ever worked for, fun, productive and well liked.
