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.

Chemical Delivery Specialist (Current Employee) – Karnes City, TX – June 14, 2013
i deliver chemical to oil and gas wells. I do see that there is a lot of room for advancement within this company if hired as a driver. Although I have been compensated well with this company, I am ready to leave to find somewhere where advancement is a possibility for me. I would have preferred to have more time off to pursue personal interests. It often felt as though my life revolved around work. Management is often disorganized and punitive toward the drivers when the drivers cannot make improvements due to time constraints.
Overall, it was a good place to work. We had company get-togethers, occasional free lunches, and safety awards for meeting guidelines.
Utility Operator (Former Employee) – Jackson, MI – July 12, 2012
In a typical day at work, I would fill containers for shipment according to customer orders. I would help to load drumlines with required drums for orders. (Plastic or steel drums) I learned what different hazard codes meant and the proper protection equipment for filling containers. Management, for the most part, was helpful, but in some cases, employee and safety problems were not addressed until something bad had happened. My co-workers were easy to get along with and were helpful. The hardest part of the job was putting on a chemical suit on hot days to fill containers. This had to be done, though, to protect me from harm. The most enjoyable part of my job was to get the orders out in a timely manner and satisfying our customers.
good healthcare benefits
intense heat in summertime. unwillingness, at times, of management to address working conditions until something bad happens.
District Account Manager (Former Employee) – Naperville, IL – June 26, 2013
Opportunities for advancement limited. Many benefits such as company vehicles, medical/dental, retirement, etc... were reduced or eliminated. I was transferred to another division which I didn't want to be a part of. Employees didn't have any choice but to accept transfers or reassignments or take early retirement option if qualified.
paperwork requirements were incredibly time consuming.
A close knit group of many relatives working on production side. It is difficult to advance due to management not being fair to all employees. The hardest part of working here is putting up with things that are obviously wrong. This place has the worst mangers ever on the manufacturing side.
My future is strong, days filled with dynamic supply chain challenges. Opportunities associated with a steady growth in energy services - product allocation, capacity analysis, long term production scheduling, supply chain analysis, cost analysis, etc. I love everything about supply chain - from inception to customer delivery, the project executions, process improvements, and the interdepartmental interactions. Management is supportive and offers plenty of praise, however, we have 3 of my 5 positions open in our department associated with employee attrition complicated with departmental growth, leaving me as the manager taking on 3 simultaneously different roles for over the 6 months so that our internal customers don't get impacted. This has left me stressed, and working nearly 60 hours a week. My Work/Life balance has been out of proportion for too long. The challenge we phase with hiring replacements is the market. Nalco is known for as secure company to work for with low salaries. So combine the time I put in, the outlook of no new hires, and a low salary, I am hoping to find a better fit for me. I've addressed my concerns with management who have expressed concern, but openly admit, they are not going to offer salary increases and they are unable to gaurantee head count to support the work load. I love supply chain, I love the hard work, but at somepoint, there needs to be a balance - and I don't have this now. As a star employee, representing all supply chain, I am the first person other departments go to for support, so in this intance, working harder and being the bestmore... employee I can be, has only overwhelmed me and made consider exploring other opportunities.less
great company with a solid reputation for people first

Well Treating Specialist, Truck Driver Group Lead (Former Employee) – Aztec, NM – November 26, 2012
Work is long days an average of 12 hours per day and hectic. You must be ready to get used to smelly checicals all day out in the oil field teating oil wells. the management is employee oriented yet very diciplened and tough. most co workers were not happy they are inexperinced and there only for the pay which is very good for a truck driver working five days a week. The best part of the work is you get to be in the great outdoors of New Mexico. The worst part of the job is bad weather days in the winter and some summer days. Chaining up a truck hard and heavy work in mud and snow. Very good bebefits.
great pay some room for advancemant beneifits are good
