I worked for Ecolab for 3 years. The perks are attractive, but the pay is minimal for the amount of travel and after hours time that will be required. You will be on salary and will not be compensated for a great deal of your efforts. You are expected to get out there and sell sell sell, but you are not compensated with commission for your sales efforts. You are told that you will only be on call once every 8=10 weekends, however customer service will contact you regardless of whether or not you are on call. Customer service is in the states, you will be expected to take calls on Canadian stat holidays. The travel estimation provided is well undershot, expect to spend a significant amount of time in hotels. During my tenure, there was 1 rep in each province in the west. Hopefully that has increased, but it gives you an idea of what the travel expectations are really like. Essentially, you must be available 7 days a week, around the clock to respond to customers. If you are a single individual who is looking to learn the ropes of sales, this may be a good fit for you. Getting to drive a company vehicle for personal use, not having to worry about gas and insurance are some nice extras that raise the value of the total compensation package, but $40,000 to start won't pay the bills for many. If you have a family or significant other, I would recommend looking elsewhere. There are sales positions out there with better salaries and far less in the way of travel requirements.
