Steady work hours and good perks
Assembly, Salavge (Former Employee) –  Rockton, ILAugust 21, 2017
Not too bad of a place to work organized company who gives their employees nice perks here and there unfortunately 60 into my 90- days i experienced a hardship that left me unable to work for 6 weeks. When I was able to work again they weren't taking anymore temps at the time otherwise I would go back there.
Pros
everyone works as a team, free lunches often, 3 day weekend
Cons
short breaks, pay could be a little higher

Out of Date
Logistics associate (Former Employee) –  Beloit, WIAugust 19, 2017
A typical day was hot and most of the time confusing and frustrating.
Equipment and computers were hard to work with and very outdated. Proper training in several different aspects needs improvement. Hardest part of this job was making rates and living up to the expectations of management. Unstable with job security. It was unknown from day to day how many hours were going to be worked the following day.
Pros
Free Lunches
Cons
Short lunches and breaks

Careless
Warehouse Associate Lead (Former Employee) –  West Palm Beach, FLAugust 17, 2017
the type of work they had employees do wasn't cutting up to the amount of pay employees should of received.
Worked in environments that were extremely dangers especially when it came to making the chemicals and etc...
old run down machines./ leaking tanks.
Managers that only cared for themselves, and One in perticular that ingaged in a flirtation behavior with all the working woman's.
overall a lot of changes were needed but they closed to terminate the facility.
Pros
The co workers
Cons
Not family oriented, doesn't take care of employees

NO Diversity
Lead Credit Specialist (Current Employee) –  Greensboro, NCAugust 14, 2017
The company speaks of diversity but does not practice it. Not one senior leader is a woman, LGQBT, or a minority.They use antiquated systems and are not open to new techniques or methods.
Cons
No diversity or growth opportunity

Pros
Company provided training, vehicle and supplies
Cons
Excessive work

Overall it was an ok experience
Service Specialist (Current Employee) –  Mobile, ALAugust 10, 2017
You get to somewhat make your own schedule. They are constantly monitorin you by your location.you have to hit a certain goal and if you don't your hourly rate goes down drastically there where weeks that I would make 30+ per hour and other weeks that I would barely get 12. Pretty much it's a get out what you put in kind of job so if you can deal with butt head managers and consistently exceeding goals that are almost impossible than this is the job for you. I recommend that I'd you get this job don't do it in the south there are way too many bugs and rodents to deal with. And never ever apply for the south alabama positions the manager is a complete duche.

Work life balance is preached but not enforced.
Service Specialist (Current Employee) –  IllinoisAugust 9, 2017
The company has one thing in mind: retain customers at all costs. Employees are forced to work crazy hours on call hours overnight hours some weeks early daytime hours other weeks. There is no consistent home life balance. The payment model RPH is actually designed to take money from the employees. Employees are required to work eight hours every single day even when some days they may work a 12 to 14 hours. This requirement is done in order to keep their pay low based on the RPH model. For example: company requires you to make company $100 per hour. They give you customers that only pay $60 per hour. This never allows you to make more than the minimum base pay. Plus all on call hours make no extra revenue bringing your pay down.
Pros
You design schedule, company vehicle
Cons
Hours, no manager within 60 miles. Poor training on the job.

Good company with decent pay
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Saint Paul, MNAugust 8, 2017
Ecolab is a good company that provides decent pay and benefits. Depending on your department, it can be tough for promotions sometimes. The work/life balance was really good.

Work Life Balance
Service Specialist (Current Employee) –  Memphis, TNAugust 8, 2017
This company is verry stressful. They promote work/life balance, but
in reality it doesn't exist. The benefits are good, but there is a lack of teamwork, and support from Management.
Pros

Cons
Stress, No work/life balance

Demanding workload
District Manager (Former Employee) –  Orange County, CAAugust 4, 2017
Good company overall but has been working on work/life balance for a long time with no success. New employees seem to quit after a short time of extra or long hours or work with no pats on the back.
Pros

Cons
long weeks of worik

Overworked and little pay
Territory Manager (Former Employee) –  Vail, COAugust 1, 2017
You work 13 weekends out of the year without compensation and only 2 weeks off for a $16/hr job. Fend for yourself as you do not get much if any useful help form the management.
Pros
you meet nice people
Cons
not enough money to live on

Okay
Route Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  Wabasha, MNJuly 31, 2017
Pay is Ok but it all depends on the territory you are assigned to, if you get a dead area, its very difficult to achieve budget or make desired money. Quality of life is not very good, plan on having a call center contact you if there is an issue at anyone of your 150 plus accounts at any point.

Great place to start your career but paid less than the market without a bonus structure for associates. There is not much room for career advancement.

Tons of work, and more is constantly added
Pest Service Specialist (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXJuly 30, 2017
If you don't have a family to go home to and have no life, this is the job for you. Good money to be made and great benefits, all at the expense of any free time.

Company can not keep a full staff so you are expected to do your work plus the work of open routes. Managers are running routes so they really are of no help to you. Lots of training provided but you don't really learn anything until you get out into the field and you're all alone... trying to figure out how to do the job with no help what-so-ever.

Best part of the job is you work by yourself all over your route, you don't sit in an office all day.

Worst part is the high amount of expectation from you without really teaching you how to do your job, or any help you can count on.

Good luck ;)
Pros
Pay, benefits, 401k, stock purchase program
Cons
No life outside of work

the Area Manager where I worked was not the nicest guy to work for. I was called a liar by him and that ruined my experience and limited my advancement with the company.
