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

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

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

Service Technician (Current Employee), Fort Myers, FLAugust 5, 2014
Pros: great pay and benefis
Cons: not enough business
Ecolab is a fine company to work for. The problem is that they expanded into Fort Myers about a year ago..and the competiton is fierce for business,not enough is being done so far to promote business, so it is very slow right now

Bad work and home life balance
Territory Manager (Former Employee), Canton, OHJuly 18, 2014
Pros: company car
Cons: no life balance
The recent crossroads and combination of jobs you have to provide make this job almost undoable. You have to wear to many hats and sales goals with service and installation goals leave you with little or no home life.

Service Specialist (Current Employee), Roanoke, VAJuly 13, 2014
Pros: good pay, benefits, company vehicle
Cons: long days, somewhat micro managed by upper managers
My job with Ecolab offers salary plus commission so there is opportunity for good income. Job demands a lot of time and driving so work life balance gets out of whack pretty often.
