Poor Organisation
Service Specialist (Former Employee), UKOctober 8, 2014
Pros: the team, own initiative, company vehicle, different each day
Cons: unpredictable hours, lack of support, .
Great start to life with Ecolab and then the cracks in the way the company operates start to appear at an alarming rate.
Great teams but morale poor due to the lack of support and understanding of your role from higher management.

Sales and routine work put before customer needs,

ZERO PAY until you reach first job which could be an hour away and then – more... the same for travel back from last job... – less

Ecolab a company who is all about the dollar not family
someone (Former Employee), martisburg wv.September 30, 2014
Pros: benefits pay are not bad
Cons: all comes down to the dollar
I learned Production is first Safety and Quality is tied. My co-workers are scared. The answer to my coworkers problems would be Union. The white tower in Saint Paul has control and does not care about the little guy.

Excellent company and benefits
Route Manager (Former Employee), Saint Paul, MNSeptember 28, 2014
Pros: excellent company to work for; excellent benefits
Cons: sometimes hours were extremely long, though rewarding.
Visit your route accounts monthly to ensure machines up to code and working properly. Manegement was very friendly and always ready to help. Hardest part was being on call 24/7, heading home and getting that "machine down " call and returning for hours; which gave me the most rewarding times as you took care of any issue and location was back to regular – more... work. – less

Manager asked me to make deliveries with an expired registration sticker on truck. Told him easy fix, just get renewal problem solved! He came back at me and said go ahead and drive if you get a ticket we'll pay for it. No thank you! Sent home then txt back that he renewed come back tomorrow. Fired after that.

Stable, challenging, fast paced, rewarding job
Territory Manager (Current Employee), Westchester, NYSeptember 18, 2014
With a multitude of customers and responsibilities, every day is different. There is always an opportunity to learn and grow as a manager, person, and professional. I have learned a lot from both my management team and my coworkers and have fostered an environment of teamwork that I had not experienced in the past.

The most challenging aspect of the – more... job is balancing the Sales, Service, and logistical responsibilities of the position. It is extremely rewarding helping and having an intregal part in the success of so many restaurants and food service establishments. – less

Route Sales Manager (Former Employee), MassachusettsSeptember 17, 2014
There is no work life balance, management heaps tasks on the field team, with absolutely no assistance or support. Run, Run away.

fast paced and challenging job
Territory Sales Manager (Current Employee), Boston, MASeptember 3, 2014
Pros: company car, flexible schedule
Cons: nights and weekends are a busy time with the job and you will receive phone calls and have to work
Typical day is never typical. Working with kitchens in restaurants hotels and schools each present their own challenge and hours of operation. In addition the loss of coworkers has lead to sales reps having to take on the additional territories which results in them having to fix the leased dish machines that a tech would usually service

This was an excellent work experience with great opportunity
Packer (Former Employee), Industry, CAAugust 21, 2014
Pros: it was a huge corporation which meant endless opportunities
Cons: cannot think of any at this time.
I worked hard at this company but I was honored to do so because I was trusted to run one of the most difficult lines within the company because no one could run it at the speed I could. My co workers were all very friendly and helpful when I first came on board. Overall I loved the job.

Declining company with terrible management--- RUN!
Sales (Former Employee), Naperville, ILAugust 12, 2014
Declining company with terrible management--- RUN! Military culture and many overblown egos running the show. Doors slamming, swearing, breaking things, all normal and part of typical daily management tug-of-wars. Politics is a bloodsport. Promotions based on being yes-men, not based on quality of work. No one seems to understand that the market will – more... not bear prices 3-4x above industry norms just because, "We're Ecolab!" Don't be the bearer of bad news because the messenger always gets shot. – less
