Review from Operations Dept · Posted 17 days ago

Was a great company to work for. Now, senior management only cares themselves. They don't want to hear from the field team, but yet none has ever worked in the field. Without the field, nothing happens.

  • Territory Managers work out of their homes. No central office unless you are in a large metro area

  • I don’t know I am in the field and I have only been to the office once.

  • It totally depends on which division or department you work in. My office experience is very supportive and flexible, but I know that isn't the case across all divisional teams.

    You are required to have at least 8 calls a day service calls and prospect calls. Some calls are fast some are 2 hours and there's about an hour or 2 of paperwork per day. 24 hours on call for emergencies. Weekend rotation where you cover most of the state your weekend is about every 10 weeks so it's not too bad. I am usually home at a reasonable time. Work life balance is reasonable.

  • It’s pretty good. I am usually home at a decent hour. Although the 24/7 on call during the week can wreck an evening if you have plans.

  • For the most part I am usually home at a reasonable time. During the week you are on call 24/7, be prepared to maybe having to run out at night. On the weekends we rotate, so you might be covering the whole state when it’s your turn. You might not get any calls or you might be gone all weekend, depending on your coverage.

Asked to all employees at Ecolab

  • Over the past 2 years the micromanaging has gotten crazy. You only want college degreed salespeople but micromanage their every move. Let us do what you hired us to do. When I first started I was told to look at your Sales Territory as your own business and you can make a career in this position. Now it’s just a stepping stone position, where there’s not a lot of ownership. Just trying to get through it to move on to something else.

  • The last few years the micromanaging has gotten out of control.

Asked to all employees at Ecolab

  • There is no paid vacation. Have to find coverage every time no coverage for your route or territory no vacation

  • You start with 2 weeks then every 5 years you get an additional week. It is up to you to get your vacation covered by other employees, and you still have to see all your accounts that month. No one is seeing your accounts while you are gone unless they call in for Emergency Service. They saw it’s paid vacation but since we are mostly commission based pay it’s really not. You can only rollover 1 week of vacation to the next year. I currently get 4 weeks vacation, but I have never used more than 2 weeks a year.
