Upper management refuses to look at the truth...they have zero concept of what is going on. They have stripped the ability for street level to build their incomes anymore. All they care about is their own bonuses. We have to work 60 hours just to break even. Zero concern about those who deliver the goods and services. Their idea of cultural diversity is to bad mouth white males and promote the militant incompetent.

I retired from the company 2 years ago but still keep in contact with many sales, service and sales managers. Earlier this year Ecolab announced that they are merging ProGaurd and Ecolab in to one unit. This makes sense from a business perspective as there are 2 companies selling virtually the same thing at different price points. This however, is a complete turn around from what they agreed to with the Federal Trade Commission to avoid a monopoly, when they bought Swisher Hygiene (renamed ProGaurd). All customer facing employees (with the exception of corporate sales and Sales Development Managers (who work with distributors)) were told that the job that they currently have is being eliminated and they will need to reapply for a new position. The jobs were posted Dec 2020 and the end of Dec is when they told the applicants if they did or did not have a job. Merry Christmas!! The new positions ALL are hourly with bonus - This takes away ALL incentive for a commissioned sales professional in my opinion. I have not heard from my contacts yet if this also means that those who did not get rehired will get a severance, my guess is no since that is why all the positions were eliminated.

You know Ecolab - numbers first. They cut directors a few years back, VPs have been encouraged to go in the last 2 years and many have chose to retire or leave on their own. Contractors with expiring contracts are gone and now it is the managers' turn. They are also planning to close down the Columbus site. The difference at Ecolab is that these things are always secretive - only the departments know of the losses and general communications are not made. Certainly there is no warning like you might get in another company so that you understand what is happening and why. Our best person was let go.

They are laying off dead ahead. Every mill is losing 1 to 2 technicians. They got our local mill today with 1 fired and the next mill 40 minutes away lost 2. Greedy and selfish. They are going after part times and newest hires.

Lol, I just got laid off in a very unexpected way. Plant management kept it low-key and was scheming to fire me the whole time just because I'm the newest one to the plant. Screw them all. I wish to never see or communicate with them ever again.

Management and executives need to keep their sky high pay and bonuses. If they didn't want to keep me long term then why make me an offer in the first place? Go to hell. You can get away with sins on earth, but not in hell.

Any room for ex-Baker Petrolite employees? It is a bloodbath over here. Slow and steady layoffs.

Don't see how not. Restaurants and hotels closed or closing. Refining industry is very slow due to price of oil. Other bricks and mortar industries slowing down and laying off there own workers.

Need for on site service is drying up.
