Co-op (Former Employee) – Batavia, NY – June 8, 2017
Worked as a Co-op in a waste water plant. It was very interesting to see how a waste water plant operated, this specific one was dealing in dairy waste from a milk product producer. It was smelly inside the plant, but that should be expected.
District Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – April 10, 2017
Cool innovation and leading company in the industry. I've enjoyed working here. The extensive training I have received is top notch. Some of upper management seem to genuinely care about their employees which is nice.
SharePoint Intern (Former Employee) – Naperville, IL – March 28, 2017
Nalco was a great place to work as an intern with a good hourly rate as well. The work that the company required as an intern was just enough to keep me busy and help me learn more about SharePoint and it's functions. The employees and management were great and very helpful as well.
Great company to work for that will help you understand running your own business
District Representative (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – March 27, 2017
Company has allowed me to have a hands on experience in running company but from a person who wants to grow in sales, sales rep position is too service oriented. Company would be excellent if company model allowed reps to spend most of time selling and calling on new customers over running monthly analytical test and writing reports.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Naperville, IL – March 3, 2017
Great Company to work for.Great people, the pay is good and the benefits are good. No opportunity for myself at the location I am at. I would have to relocate or go to another location for advancement according to HR.
People, pay scale & benefits are all really good
Not allot of opportunity for everyone only certain scales.
They gave me the opportunity to reach management level

Senior Technical Service Rep (Former Employee) – Ticonderoga, NY – December 2, 2016
I had an excellent experience with Nalco Water, until due to corporate cost cutting measures my position was eliminated. Overall it was an excellent experience and I gained a great deal of knowledge throughout my career with them.
Technical Service Engineer (Former Employee) – Vancouver, WA – September 13, 2016
Able to interact with a wide variety of different people on a daily basis while learning about various and different industries. There is always something new to learn at Nalco. Lots of variety and autonomy. Management was excellent. Manager knew we all worked hard and when it was time for team building or other group outings he ensured we had a lot of fun as well. If you need to be around co-workers daily or need to punch a time clock, this is not a job for you.
Company truck with gas card, autonomy, lots to learn, growth potential is huge
Lots of hours (60 - 70/week), local travel, mostly, some out of town travel requiring over night stays, can go several weeks without seeing co-workers
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Slidell, LA – August 30, 2016
First company I ever worked for with no real employee training on their Nalco equipment that I was installing,troubleshooting and repairing. Most of the lower level employees were awesome to work with. Management was unorganized and did not take services seriously enough for me. The company promises customers professional service on equipment but has no official training on the very equipment service techs are working on. They just passed me around to employees in the field. I was taught multiple ways on how to service equipment from different people and no one seemed to know how to do paperwork, reports nor was there consistency in the proper way to install and work on the Nalco owned equipment.
Technical Services Engineer (Former Employee) – Vancouver, WA – August 23, 2016
Nalco was a great place to work because I was in different accounts every day. I learned a lot about water treatment and working directly with customers. Travel was minimal most of the time and I made great contacts.
Lots of opportunities for advancement, well rewarded with team building events
Lots of hours. I was working 60 - 70 hrs/week, salaried, not OT.
Production Planner (Current Employee) – Louisiana – July 7, 2016
Working for Nalco is convenient because it is a place where you can make decent pay but work close to home. As the oil industry changes, the company seems to be pushing away from the Nalco Champion and emerging as Nalco Water or solely Ecolab. Thats frustrating.
