Ecolab Employee
in Saint Paul, MN

"Stay away! No training! No support! Lack of empathy! Work/life balance doesn't exist! Managers are horrible! Culture is stuck back where no one talks to anyone, double standard expectations! Cut throat and high school drama! People use other people to get ahead. Quick to tell you did something wrong but nothing when something is done right! Forget about a learning curve! You accept the job, know it all on your first or expect it to be documented! Grudges and everyone talks about everyone!"

"I've worked for Eco Lab for four years. I've been in the work force for 25+ years and the treatment here is the worst I have ever seen. They use the carrot n the stick method but lost the carrot long ago. The heavy handed treatment is unbelievable. Total disregard for employee rights and dignity. Even unwilling to follow labor laws of the states they operate in. Truly a bad experience."

Ecolab Employee
in Omaha, NE

"This job is for self-motivated people. Pay is based on commission. My route was a rural route with very little growth. The customers are awesome and friendly, just small. It required a lot of travel (~2,500 - 3,000 miles/month). What type of manager you have is a roulette wheel. Some are awesome and some are horrible."

"This is a highly stressful position and it's not worth it for what they pay you as you can make more elsewhere doing the same thing at other comparable sized competitors."

"I've worked for Ecolab for 3 years now and while the company itself is quite good the culture discourages open conversation, particularly with executive leadership. This leads, in my very subjective opinion, to a non-collaborative environment difficult for developers to thrive."

Machine Operator
in Greensboro, NC

"I worked for 5 years 2 months at Ecolab in Greensboro, NC. I got along with most of the employees well but there were those who caused me problems. I got no issues resolved when I spoke to my supervisors. I hate to state that but it is the truth. The company had it's good moments although few and far between. I came in and did my job very well but seldom got any praise. I had hoped that Ecolab would be my last employer and I could retire from there but that was not to be."

Territory Account Representative
in Greensboro, NC

"Management is very disconnected with field employees. Training is minimal. Compensation is very low. I drive almost 5,000 miles a month, but that time spent is not factored into my pay. Hostile work environment - exceed expectations, or else. Far too large of a corporation, you get lost in the shuffle and become a number. Micro-managing middle managers. Overall, poorly run company. It baffles me how they are so profitable."
