Ecolab Sucks | 11/23/04

Rather than spending another entry complaining about my job, I figured I'd burn this entry by sharing at least one story about a former job. Bear in mind, I had just turned 17 so some of the details might be kind of hazy (read: made-up).

The summer of 1997 I worked for an EcoLab in Illinois. It was through Manpower and it was my second temp job, my first one doing data entry for a day or two for the Plainfield Sun. They told me I'd be doing administrative things since I had such stellar computer skills. When I got there I found my new boss was a minor league pitcher for the Oakland Athletics. He had pictures of himself playing ball all over his office and I was determined to impress him. He told him that I was going to be an "efficiency expert". I had no idea what that meant but I figured since "expert" was part of the title it couldn't be all bad. Oh, but it was. He brought me down to the main plant before explaining what I was to do. My eyes watered in the chemical-laden air as he informed me I was to follow around various employees with a clipboard and digital stopwatch, timing them every time they did anything other than crank out Lime-Away. He then introduced me to the first woman I was to monitor, this puffy Hispanic woman named Carmella. Carmella was about 40 and clad in a Mickey Mouse T-shirt and white jeans. Even now I get a good laugh when I see a shirt with Disney characters popping out of the breast pockets but this was different. It wasn't a "aren't I cute white trash" look but a "my God, my life can't get any worse" look. After our introduction the pitcher left and I stood there with Carmella looking at me. She stared me down for a while until I innocently asked if I should be writing down this time as "non-work".

After a few days of doing this and her receiving what seemed to be a motivational speech by our Cy Young daily she decided she was going to make my life a living hell. She took to making it a point to walk over to me every time she had to do anything--cough, sneeze, scratch herself, whatever and say, "Hey skinny, you get that one?" or after stretching her arms as she yawned, "Hey tiny, I only stretch for 20 seconds and you write 30 seconds". Her English was not great but my broken Spanish was able to translate enough to know I should just stop coming to work. Within a week of working there she had ensured no one would talk to me and I gave in and just stopped writing down anything at all.

Since obviously I was the most hated member of the 300 person staff I sat by myself every day at lunch. While no one spat on me, the only time anyone talked to me in three months was when I was sipping my Barq's Root Beer and some mix operator walked over to me, slapped his hands down on the table across from me, put his face about an inch from mine and said quietly, "straws are for p*ssies" before walking away.

By the end of month two, I had taken to not writing anything down at all except bathroom trips. This seemed to cease people handing plastic bottles of mysterious colored liquids with small holes in the bottom to me. One of the last people I was to watch was a batch mixer named (no really) Charles. Charles had a disfigured left hand and loved the band Styx. Never having listened to popular music growing up, I agreed that Styx was indeed the greatest band ever. Being as squeamish as I am now, I could never really look directly at The Hand but from the quick glimpses I took, it kind of looked like a gnarled branch. Charles was nice enough until he asked me what my favorite Styx song was. Apparently my answer of..."gee, they're all so good" was only good enough until he decided we were going to sing a song together while the mixture settled. He asked me what song I wanted to sing. I informed him that as a drummer I'd be better of backing him on drum set while he sang. He agreed on the condition that I'd sing back-up. He elected for us to perform "Lady" for all the other batch mixers. Foolishly, I started right in with a drum beat. I don't think he even got a word out before he stopped me and asked what the hell I was doing. I'm sure I blushed knowing the inevitable question was coming: Name ANY Styx song. With his mangled nub in my face like a zombie-microphone I figured I'd try a guess. I can't remember what exactly I guessed but apparently was it not only NOT a Styx song it was similar enough to the title of some .38 Special that he stopped talking to me all together.

What's sad, is that I'd rather be doing that again than working where am I now. I didn't appreciate how nice it was to have no one talk to you at work.

I have worked at ecolab for 11 years, sure like all big companies that are listed, profits are what drives them, so if does not suit you , leave, no one is forcing you to stay, i have found ecolab to be a decent emloyer, this is 2011 and they have changed their ways to look after employees, in Australia they are a great company to work for.

Auntie Em (11/01/11)

I can't believe all the pissing and moaning going on here. You guys think it's all butterflies and rainbows out there??? I'm not saying ECOLAB is the best place in the world to work but have you looked around lately??? Very few jobs and even less pay than you make now!! At least your job at ECOLAB puts food on the table, puts a roof over your head and gives you health benefits. You think ECOLAB is the only place who has shit for brains management?? Most large companies are like that. Upper management trains them to be like that....it gets them their big bonuses. This ain't Disneyland where you're going to get free passes to the teacup ride....suck it up and do your job and quit your bitching. There are shitloads of people out there that would love to have your job.

REAL TALK (11/05/11)

People kill me they complain all the time about there situation and if you ask them to come together in a situation they fall back like a drunk in the street. Complain on and on you always got someone else doing your dirty work (JOLIET) its called a union they got your back ask yourself do you have there back. Stand up and have a voice!!!!!!

Ozzie Victim (11/10/11)

2 Australia companies taken over by Ecolab sicnce 1997 - both destroyed, Workers lided to, lifes and families impacted on with no regard at all. Promises given with no intention but to be broken - sad company with Bill Gates at the top. No intention on delivering what customers are promised. I feel sorry for all the Nalco employees about to get the shaft. You can only hope they will get theirs back as the chances of them living up to the companty culture statement is non exsistant - "At Ecolab, we believe that the success of our associates and the success of our company go hand-in-hand. We are committed to a culture that fully leverages our associates' talents by promoting an environment where all people can make a difference, be heard, be supported, be developed, and be rewarded for their contributions." What a load of hyped up Crap! Ecolab really does suck!

Beware Australia! (11/12/11)

Try and avoid this company at all cost! I have never experienced anything like this in our wonderful country. The Americam way does not fit in here. You need to be a total butt licker like "Lap Dance Lance" to have any chance of fitting in with the EGOlab culture. Beware Australia they are buying up any Ozzie company they can and destroying the Australian way! We do not need companies like this in our country! They are taking over to create a monopoly and drive prices up thru lack of competition. Support local products, companies and culture!

What's up Bros? Haven't seen many posts lately. I thought perhaps everyone was buckled down helping Putch and JFG and Jeff D. and Gary B. and others earn their fat bonuses. Is it time to call OSHA or EPA yet?

Northern Alberta oil and gas camp (03/08/12)

I couldn't agree more about the comments regarding Ecolab which recently lost a big contract in our camp presumably due to poor customer service. Sales reps don't have offices and as a result customer service sucks. You have to call a toll free number that rings in Ontario, Canada, thousands of kilometres away to talk to anyone. I am going to call the competition and ask that they show up at our camp with some free sample products for our kitchen staff. I have used Ecolab laundry products as well and many co-workers complain that the product causes them to itch. It is truly unfortunate that the company has no customer service and that sales reps have to operate out of the truck of their cars.

Maxine 124 (03/08/12)

I experimented with everything. I was eating less and jogging, but nothing was working. I had this big belly that I could not seem to lose... That's until finally a friend phoned me about 3 months ago and told me about hcg. I was skeptical as I usually am with any trending diet product but I requested a trial order because I was curious. 6 weeks down the line here I am, 5% body fat and best of all no belly fat! You can read the article my friend Sara sent me at dietnews12.com. I'm starting to share this valuable information with anybody who is battling with shedding weight. Please tell friends & family, this really works! Just thought I'd post my success story for www.redzeppelin.org. Hope it helps somebody!

I HATE ECOLAB PEST ELIMINATION!!

JolietBulkFillers (03/09/12)

To all of you management types, get out of here while you can. You know Ecolab will never allow you to retire and earn your pension. If you look at all of the management people who worked here, how many do you see ever retiring? They always find a way to get rid of you before you get the retirement benefits. For every salaried person who retires, probably 50 hourly people retire.

Ecolab 600 bribes (03/15/12)

Once again Carla Smith allows Plant Mgr Jerry Quigley and Human Resource Rep Penny Jones to get away with whorific schemes that undermind Ecolabs hourlys. Ecolab has suffer a curse among curses from its wrongful termination back on Oct 24,2011 of an associate because of his practice in union organizing. Now some hourlys are letting Quigley and Jones bribe them into turning amongst one another by selling their souls to conning positions that Smith/Quigley and Jones have all created. Sadly these kinds of things are hard to tell most hourlys how harmful jobs that are under minding cruel and despicable can be. And that you never forget about what all you had to fight for to have justice with yourself and management. Now you let Quigley create these sell out positions and have meetings where you stand up there and humiliate your fellow co-worker by snitching right in their faces. Yeah you say how much of a leader you want to be, but throw a cookie your way and run like a perfumed skunk, a rat with a mouth full of white dentures, a sheep that'll dismemebers flesh. You fall short of everything we fought for in 2011. You will lose this charade you form with Quigley, and right after he fires your body, your flesh,your self esteem, you will always be hourlys to him and Jones, you will falter in disgust. And now all your snitching, all your selling out, will laugh in your face. Watch!!!

When i was hired by Ecolab back in 1994 i thought that this was the company i would retire from , but as time went by and changes occur in the business and world , my passion slowly dimmed , they talked about core values and the culture of the company , well lets just say that those lines r just lines now with no meaning or value . As time went by i could see the change in the work force middle aged were becoming an endangered species , the field was changing younger less trained , less experienced men and women where being put into the field , i could also see how i was being treated as an employee , yearly reviews where less then steller and a pattern was developing ,i was one of those employees that would do anything for the company and work as long as it needed to complete the task. Then came the day od reconing by my District manager , I way texted massage by him to meet him @ a local hotel lobby on a wednesday morning for a 8 am meeting , being a mature employee i sensed somthing was up , i got to the meeting place a half hour before , having a good idea what was going down, I thought if my DM came in one bt himself i still would be employeed , if he arrived in a car with another person i was being let go, one car two people i knew this was it and it was ! I watch as him and the Area manager walked in to the hotel to set and have breakfast before letting me go , I gave them 15 minutes to get settled in and order , then i went in for what was to be, i approached their table, i starteled them, they said to me we need to go to a more privite setting , in less then 30 seconds my career was over ,was given a ride home dropped off @ my home , no severance pay . 15 yrs of loyality , GONE ! It has taken me 2 years to sit down and post my thoughts like this , PS. , as big blue cut up my territory they went and hire 2 people to replace what i was doing as one ? mk 570-899-8384

Ecolab Mcdonough Human Resource Rep Penny Jones has violated company policies. (Code of conduct) several times for the last couple of years. Jones has been known and has been seen hugging and kissing an associate during the B-shift hours. This has been seen by other associates and has happen numerous times. So what makes Jones appropriate to be in authority over anyone at Ecolab. Charging them with false accusations and showing favoritism to the ones she wants too. Just ask any associate who works on the floor, any associate who works on the mezzinine, anyone who works in the lab, and even right upstairs where Jones works near her office. Everyone including other managers have seen Penny Jones engaged with this behavior

JolietBulkFiller (01/27/12)

No one should be surprised that JFQ (Production Git 'Er Done - Safety and Environment Be Damned) is up to his old Joliet tricks at McDonough now. He made his bones chewing up Shift Supervisors and good hourly employees at Joliet, and earned some really fat bonuses while doing all that grimacing, teeth gritting, headshaking, and throwing objects whenever anyone would question his ways. McDonough, we had to deal with his stuff for 30+ years.

[quote] A threatened Joliet african american (Unknown) A sad few weeks ago in a Joliet liquids meeting with workers and ecolab supervisors there was a hard to paint comment made on the black race. While an shy african american was in the meeting and did not stand up for himself, a white person did turn the racist in. Although the white liquids superviser didn't do anything to the offender due to they are buddy's. He was told not to speak like that. Then after he heard the up roar the blacks were making about the commet he worked a deal to have one day off with no pay. Does a day off justify this mans nasty voice calling racist tones that he spat at his coworkers and at another african american while looking at him in his eye?? One day for many more days of insults of having to look at this guy and hear in our mind what he said over and over again. I don't need to be reminded of my color. All I have to do is look at my skin and I see my color, I don't need a white devil tossing slurs out in a safe work place that of ecolab 3001 chanahonn rd Joliet il. 60436 815-729-7380 ask for Paul Putch( he's the go to man) When a few of us went to seek a answer from the plant manger Jeff (over weight) demeny. He said he was not aware of the comment. So here is the break down in ecolab management. Noone knows what's going on in the back nor do they care. We need Jesse Jackson and the NAACP. This white boy ain't going call us like that. And that boss is guilty too. So he are the facts. The african american that was in the meeting and heard the negative slur and said nothing was a liq mixer , Ramsy perry. The white supervisor in there was Dawn Cooper. A few others in the meeting that did not believe what they heard come from the mouth of non other than Kevin Kubzak or pet name "kubie" The garbage he spewed from his mouth as he stood up in the meeting was "I'm tierd of you working me like a NIGGER". It hurt me to write that. And even to go back and see that word makes my eyes hurt. As I think back on all our black slaves in the field just a picking away or as kubie would have said it working me!! we need to rework these young minds of today and not let the words of our race interfere with a cloudy misjudgement of bad taste. Now is one day off good for him?? And letting him lick that day so he could have a long weekend yes there is more to this there always is at the soap story of ecolab. Ty. Stay tuned.[Quote]contact your nearest eeoc office.One day off with no pay is a joke and whoever fell for that crap is a bigger joke.hit em where it hurts...in their pockets

McDonough 600, if your site doesn't have operating safety eyewashes or showers or running water, please call OSHA. I think the inspectors would like to hear all about that.

Wrongful Termination Oct 2011 (04/05/12)

Ecolab Mcdonough 600 times a ticking. Justice will be in my favor. Don't think for one minute this situation has faded away. And that all the soft spoken hourlys there continue not to be heard. Its April now six months have pass since the wrong doing by Alias Smith & Jones. And (SQuidward) Quigley, well lets just say you and I had our chat that day.

Jerry Quigley (04/17/12)

I've been plant manager at Ecolab Mcdonough for a little over a year now, and one thing I don't tolerate is any associate thinking they can come in and run my plant the way they think they want to. When I was hire on as plant manager I promised Ecolab that I would put all my cards on the table and make the right choices on all the right moves to win. That means whatever it takes to win. Thats what I was hired for. My staff of supervisors report every detail situation daily througout each shift to me. Unlike like the last plant manager I will not put up with any non-sense. As a minor league ball player I'm use to being a team player, so stand in my way and I'll crush you. Blacks know where I stand and what I expect out of them. Thats why I've created lead jobs so other blacks can keep them in line. This means during company meetings and so forth. Ecolab gives me the bull whip and I plan on using it as I see forth. So thats just what I'm about. Getting the getting the job done with pride, passion and a We Can Do It Attitude. Know matter who I destroy.

it sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(05/10/12)

Ecolab is only doing the over protective PPE thing because of Osha coming and investigating their Mcdonough 600 Plant couple months ago. Right Ecolab?? They could really care less about those workers around the plant. And Mcdonough Plant uses an supposely ex-firefighter has been to walk the floors there claiming to be the safey guru. Maybe he should better represent floor workers and lose a few pounds around his waistline, I mean have you seen this guy!! Ecolab allows this guy to milk money from hourly workers as his salary, have meetings that the Plant Manager allows him to force workers to read these senseless memo's that he the guru should only be doing. Humiliating some who may not be as literate as others. This is not grammar school or anything in these terms. Its work! For those workers who know how to run those pail lines, know how to operate forktrucks, know how to mix patches, know how to perform truck services and cast mixing. Maybe if this guy first learns to do all the trades of as people like him and other Managers call them (hourlys), then maybe just maybe forces workers to read during meetings might mean alittle something. Other than that why does Ecolab need him around. Not to mention those non humor slides this clown shows at the begining of these meetings

PPE/Osha/ Ecolab cover-ups (05/10/12)

Because of the lastest Osha visit to Ecolab 600 Plant. Saint Paul has issue a PPE mandatory for all its hourly associates who spend all of the day working in its manufacturing areas. This includes forklift operators as well as its supervisors. And anyone who enters the floor where work is being process. Some hourlys complain that most will suffer from all the over dressing that sleeves/ large goggles / and hardhats will bring to them health wise. Mcdonough is in the south and if anyone has ever work in a plant like 600 during the warm and extreme months know that you will fry. Ecolab spends thousands and millions of dollars keeping their offices cool during the summer and warm during the winter. Mcdonough 600 has very very humid work areas for women and men inside of its facility. Gosh what would it take to plessy glass most of those humid areas where hourlys are treated like mere animals Ecolabs? To add air condition units to keep them the hourly workers nice and comfortable. I mean now that Ecolab as brought on big names now to their board of directors, I'm sure something like making workings comfortable to make quarter earnings more profitable in your pockets would surely do you great favor Ecolab. This is something I'm certain 600's safey guru Manager would think in all his experience as an ex-firefighter would benefit the Foxconn hourly associate, Right? Oh yeah you might want to make sure that get a {supervisor or manager notified if someone passing out or seems overheated thing} even more on alert now Ecolab, because after all that stretching during the shift meetings while wearing that PPE even your supervisors may how can I put it, PASSOUT from heat exhaustion.

unknown (06/05/12)

I worked at the joliet plant and the mcdonough plant and drew my retirment at a young age. At the time joliet was a good place to work. The mcdonough plant was unsafe. I worked in other industries and found over all echolab to be the best. It sounds to me like most people voicing there opinion on this sight have a lot of growing up to do. Jerry quigly has been a good leader ever since I've known him. If you don't like your job go find you another one, but you will take your problem with you. It don't sound like echolab is the problem. It sounds to me like your a bunch of crie babys

DrPeterVenkman (05/15/12)

My wife worked for Ecolab since 04, & just now recently found a much better position. She was a Territory Manager, Yes, Imagine I female Territory Manager. In short, it was a NIGHTMARE. Ethics?... Ecolab does not possess these. They will expect you to be OnCall 24/7, The bonus structure is bogus, even the pay doesnt work out. My brother Is currently still employed with them & it is the same old song & dance. BTW he had the largest TM ditrict in all of Ecolab, would be driving 8+ hours a day. The mgmnt is lucky I didnt burn some of their houses down. Also, make a habit of recording conversations with mgmt as they will say many things to strong arm you, some of the stuff my brother tells me is, frankly unREAL! If you can afford to work elsewhere plz do. Cause in the years my wife worked for them, I never got to see her, & she was so unhappy. Do yourself a favor & find a job that pays the bills that will allows you to be with the ppl you love cause Ecolab is like taking on an adopted problematic child, you will have no extra time & very little extra money. My wife was spending near 1000$ a month just in Gas bout 550$ of that was coming straight out of our pocket. However in 04 the company was pretty kwl, her first boss was awesome. But after that it was just downhill fast. It soon became apparent that her being a woman was a problem with some ppl (boys club) especially when she was outselling most of them every year. Human Resources @ ecolab is a joke as well. Most the upper mgmt from Colorado=Huge Douche bags that will not hesitate to express their Mormon beliefs on you in a heartbeat. I hear ppl say how the USA is all PC now, not in Ecolab. You will excell fast if you are a White/Male/Close Minded.

Scooter (05/15/12)

Ecolab managers; especially district managers behave as if they are GOD! They lie to us daily regarding everything from redistricting to how come your budget number went up mid year. They try to get you to screw every customer possible during the feared, "quarter end push." They will even go as far as telling you to ask the customer if you can "park" some product on their dock (only to return the order in the next month) and allow them to keep half of the fake order for their troubles at the expense of the territory manager!!!!!!! These fuckers are the most discusting, scummy bastards that I have ever been associated with in my work history!!! I am soooooooo disgusted that I have spent almost a decade with this company! I always have visions of being a whistle blower, and that time is coming very soon!!

This place is a joke, management is allowed to treat Supervisors/employees anyway they want. They have people with no DC experience in management making decisions and HR backs them on it when they dont know their $$$ from a hole in the ground. Dont even think about going to Corporate to complain because they dont care either. Myself and another employee have a lawsuit against the big ECO right now. Harassment and discrimination are very serious with our labor law standards. I cant wait to see them pay!! I hope our actions will make it better for anyone who is brain dead enough to accept a position in the future. The people who are happy with the Company are the little pets who run to HR and tattle on everyone when they sneeze. If you are not in the click with K.D. you are doomed. Glad to here theirs someone else out here besides me and what I'm standing for to put a stop to Corporate greed against Union support. I lost my job at 600 not so much because of a snitching associate running telling Penny Jones about the Oct 13, 2011 incident that I was later accused of threatening & intimidating someone, but because of my union involvement with Lionel Ramirez now a supervisor and the fact the associate I was accused of with this crime was and is Penny Jones's next of kin. I'm not gonna stop my ads here, and Larson can continue sending his threats against me wiith his Legal team. I've done nothing wrong Larson. Oh another thing Quigley stop sending current associates/ managers by my home during the day and night. Don't push it Quigley! You've done enough to my family with this termination In response to:

Corruptive 600 (07/11/12)

Ecolab headquarters allows such poorly behavior from its surrounding plants because for years this company has always had such unruly favortism from such high powered Executives who allow these unfair things to happen , such as threatening & intimidation from Human Resources and Managers of all kind. The Mcdonough Plant in Mcdonough Georgia has been accused now for the last couple of years for poor mismanagement. Current Human Resource Rep at the Mcdonough 600 Plant who has now been on the job training for at least 5 years or more now, still can't seem to successfully make correct decisions when dealing with simple electronic time punch in's, hourly associates personal and leave of absences forms of sort. 600 Human Resource Rep also lacks professional courtesy amongst hourly's as well as some office associates. 600 Rep also lets personal off the job problems escalate into brutal harm to the hourly associate who seeks help from him or her when face with on the job profanity or other harrassment issues with team members, sudden temper tantrums from this Rep has cause a many hourlys writes up as well as unfair points and made up coachings. Mcdonough 600 Plant Manager who leads this parade of unprofound small army of villians, according to most if not all hourlys there. Some who are to afraid to speak out. Such behaviour is unacceptable where it is unwanted, unreasonable and offensive to the recipient. Sexual, racial and sectarian harassment, or harassment on grounds of age and disability constitute discrimination, and are unlawful. Harassment may also be a criminal offence and may contravene Health and Safety legalisation: complaints of this type of harassment can also be brought under the Protection From Harassment Order. Recently during The Equal Employment Opportunity Commision visit at 600 in the investigation of a terminated hourly, The EEOC willingly allow Ecolab to lie about what the associate had brought charges on this this company for. The EEOC allow Human Resource Rep and a host of others to use write ups that did'nt pertain to the charges that the associates was terminated for. Plant Manager at 600 and Corp Queen (HR) in Saint Paul MN all along with The EEOC who allow to be sidetrack and made a fool out of were all in on the heist. I guess you get what you pay for these days when dealing with low-lifes as what we have here. Humiliation, intimidation, action which demeans or undermines the individual. Physical conduct ranging from touching to serious assault racial abuse of a physical or verbal nature verbal and written harassment through jokes, offensive language, gossip and slander, sectarian or racist songs, threats, letters. Visual displays of posters, graffiti, obscene gestures, flags, bunting or emblems or any other offensive material. Isolation or non-co-operation at work, exclusion from social activities. Isolation or non-co-operation at work, exclusion from social activities undignified treatment, ridicule, marginalisation of an individual because of their disability coercion, including pressure for sexual favours, pressure to participate in political/religious groups. These acts do accure at Ecolab 600 and will go public in future blogs and post entry. This is not over.

600 souls (07/11/12)

Once again Carla Smith allows Plant Mgr Jerry Quigley and Human Resource Rep Penny Jones to get away with whorific schemes that undermind Ecolabs hourlys. Ecolab has suffer a curse among curses from its wrongful termination back on Oct 24,2011 of an associate because of his practice in union organizing. Now some hourlys are letting Quigley and Jones bribe them into turning amongst one another by selling their souls to conning positions that Smith/Quigley and Jones have all created. Sadly these kinds of things are hard to tell most hourlys how harmful jobs that are under minding cruel and despicable can be. And that you never forget about what all you had to fight for to have justice with yourself and management. Now you let Quigley create these sell out positions and have meetings where you stand up there and humiliate your fellow co-worker by snitching right in their faces. Yeah you say how much of a leader you want to be, but throw a cookie your way and run like a perfumed skunk, a rat with a mouth full of white dentures, a sheep that'll dismembers flesh. You fall short of everything we fought for in 2011. You will lose this charade you form with Quigley, and right after he fires your body, your flesh,your self esteem, you will always be hourlys to him and Jones, you will falter in disgust. And now all your snitching, all your selling out, will laugh in your face. Watch!!! Hey Quigley/Smith/and that other thing who I'm guessing is the 600 HR

Saint Paul visit at 600 (07/11/12)

So here we are again with Ecolab 600 and its Corp guru's in charge coming down to say great job YALL !!! From Anderson to Smith and even bigger wigs who play roles in belittling the hourly associate. They come down with their fat pockets looking down on some of the dummies who are just dumb enough to buy what the Corporate devils are selling. And what their selling to some of these Sellout hourlys are lies on a popsickle stick. Lies that started with Quigleys flyers saying say "No to the Union". And after all the bull that lead to the termination of the Union supporter associate and the early March 2011 junk that ended in a wrongful termination, one of 600's own supervisors (black) who cause the beginning termination of the hourly associate, walk out on Quigley & Jones. I mean wasn't this one of Penny Jones's favorite little goons. At least the little goon thought Quigley love her only to be wrong for standing up against Quigley. Guess she forgot Quigley does not like blacks, just as long as they stay in their place. And all of the others managers or whatever they were, from the lab to truck services, heck even the Planner where Jones had that cruel suspenion meeting against the Union supporter is gone now. Hmmmmmmmmm, that would not ever had happen under Parkerson. Can't keep your soldiers in line huh Quigley? But even I have to give you Quigley your prompts and thats the fine job you seem to have convinced the Sellout hourlys even the ones like (Noz) who attended all those Union meetings last year in 2011 at the Mcdonough Applesbees the Barnes & Nobles and the Mcdonough Park near the Square, but he wasn't alone. Now leading the 3rd shift screw who which he just months ago stood up for as a Union Steward. Supervisor now, you go boy! Hmmmmmm I thought ALLAH (Muhammad) stood for something. And indeed you are upon a high standard of moral character.‚ÄĚ (Quran 68:4) right you Sellout! Hey Quigley great job with that one. So now theres a loose bone positon out there for 2 other Sellouts to fill in his position now. Maybe the large headed guy will get it? I'm asking I don't know. And for all you other hourlys who fake over heating in the Plant remember you're an hourly a minority a clock puncher thats all. You might wanna start to wear bigger pants so air can flow throught your thighs. Stop faking! No one cares. Sick puppies is all you all are. I'll be back man ....... Dang yall should be ashame! And you testimony lyers who I thought were their for me too. You know who you are.

Ecolab Relatives relations mystery (07/12/12)

Relatives are eligible for employment as long as they do not directly report to a supervisor or manager to whom they are related. There must be at least two direct reporting levels between any relative. TO PREVENT SITUATIONS WHERE BUSINESS DECISIONS MAY BE COMPROMISED,RELATIVES OF AN ECOLAB ASSOCIATE REPRESENTING HUMAN RESOURCES ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR HIRE. In Addition, individuals may not be hired in to the preceding areas if they have a relative who is a current ecolab associate. On July 7,2012 during a weekend overtime workday Human Resource Rep next of kin ADMITTED being the nephew of the Human Resource Rep Penny Jones, this was all taken down noted and possibly proof of other types of electronic recording took place in the admittance of this statement from the alleged assailant actually saying and I quoted: " My Auntie let you guys come in on saturday and work huh? "

Oz (07/23/12)

Ecolab is that cheap on maintance in Australia. Cheap? Nothing at all. There is going to be one hell of a chemical spill from this soon, yes I have told them. In one ear, out the other. Just blame the operator, tell that to the EPA. They'll shut Ecolab down. Pipes leak at customer sites, goes down the drain. Ecolab does not give a shit.

(08/29/12)

If you do not like your job at Ecolab...leave and go find another...good luck on that!! You all need to grow up and be grateful in this economy that you have a job....good or bad....there are a lot of people out there that will gladly fill your shoes!!

ive been working for ecolab in joliet for 20 years never heard of clem and as u and i know some of that story is true most isnt... made for funny stuff though..

EP (Unknown)

Yeah I worked for those bastards for nearly 3 years. I would have to go to other areas of the region here in the Norhteast.
I was a route manager with a newborn, and looking back now, I cannot beleive the scare tactics that they used to use on us to get us to perform.
The laugh is on them now as there are a few of us involved against a lawsuit against these monsters.
I would like to make the world know about shit companies like Ecolab. Please spread the word!

Ecolab SUCKS THE LIFE OUT OF YOU! (Unknown)

I worked for these guys in Canada and I couldn't believe how lazy my District Manager was. I have NEVER in my life seen such a lazy fat bastard who lied so much to his team. How this DM in the west District every got promoted makes me wonder who he blew to get a leg up in the company. I even heard that in some isolated regions they have the Territory Managers do the Route Managers positions at well for the same pay. I'm glad I quit my RM position. I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND ANYONE TO WORK FOR THIS CORPORATION! THEY don't give a shit about nothing except $$$$$$.

EP in KS EX RM (Unknown)

I worked for Ecolab for 50 months, wich is just over 4 years. I've never worked for a company that has the ethics that they had/have. I am very thankful to be gone from it and very thankful that I never again have to hear a pager again. I'm also very glad that I dont have to deal with a liar of a boss.

HappyEcolabGirl (Unknown)

I don't know what y'all are talking about! Ecolab is one of the most ethical companies I've ever been a part of. The whole process of recruitment, training, management is top notch. I've assistance and support the whole way through and it continues! They are a dynamic company but care about their associates and strive to provide total customer satisfaction. No one in this business even COMES CLOSE to providing the level of service that Ecolab offers. We manage our customers and are there for them 24/7. We do the thinking for them so they can manage their business and not have to worry about their cleaning/sanitizing needs...we take care of that. So....you guys need to take your bitterness and put that to work to find something that makes you happy. This wasn't the place for you. You get out what you put in.

Sad Sad Company To Work For (Unknown)

I strongly agree with Ecolab being a poor company to work for. Unfortunately, if you don't kiss (_0_) <----- ass NOBODY gets ahead.
I too like many others, worked for a DM who did nothing but lie to his Managers. Though much time and effort is brought forth training employees, not enough is done for those who continuously strive at being the best in their work. As mentioned from a previous blogger, they are a corporation who's sole purpose is to strive to make their next billion dollar.

We wouldn't want a company to grow a conscience now would we??????
Why should anyone really care?

Without the existing bottom feeders or slaves, this company wouldn't be NOTHING!

The high paid execs should re-distribute their overpaid wages to the Managers who actually make this company work!

How can a corporation really claim to be "ETHICAL" when money is involved?

Business and ethics...
Now there's a F'n concept!

I have been working for the company for two years and have nothing to complain about at all. I drive a 2008 Dodge Magnum that the company pays for and lets me keep 24 hours a day. I have a good salary and GREAT BENEFITS!!! This job provides for me and my daughter and most IMPORTANTLY they help me excell in my role as a sales person. I get lots of leads, and mind you this in the NEW YORK CITY territory which is very competetive. I love working with them they have a GOOD reputation in the commercial business.

I'm very happy to be employed by them

N/A (Unknown)

They treat me very well, pay is great, benefits are great, my DM is great, ya there is some stress to the job but every good job comes with stress, if you dont have stress at your job then your lazy and in the wrong career, you gotta work to achieve and work isnt suppose to be easy. I love this job but I understand some have had the bad with this as well, it isnt for everybody.

1. Matt Jackson approached me in lane 5 as I dropped a pallet. Matt told me to mind my own business. If I had a problem with him I should get over it etc.
I asked Matt if he was working here or just talking. He went on for about 30 seconds telling me to mind my own business and etc. I then told him it is over with now, the horseplay incident, and drove away.

2. I was picking in aisle 94 as I backed out of level 2 bin, Matt said what are you doing? He had walked up behind me on my blind side to harass me. He knows that from the past it upsets me to be startled. I then asked him if he was supposed to be working or just giving me a hard time. I left and I wrapped that pallet.

3. I picked the next pallet and was wrapping it on No. 1 wrapper and Matt was by the time clock harassing me about minding my own business if I knew what was good for me etc. He also said in affect would I like to step outside. I ignored him wrapped my pallet and put it in lane 5.

4. My next pallet I was in line to wrap at wrapper No. 1 April was wrapping her pallet and talking to Matt. When I went up to wrap, Matt started harassing me again. I told him I would let Mary handle it, he kept talking he knew I was pissed off. He said come over here he was 15 to 20 feet away. I just turned the truck and hit the gas and in 2 seconds I stopped 2 feet from him. I shocked him, he yelled to April you saw that he tried to hit me. He repeated He tried to hit me over and over about 5 times and then ran into the office. I never saw him the rest of the day.

This whole episode happened within 30 to 40 minutes.
I was fired

They say they care but they do not. I'm trying to hang in there but I may quit as soon as I find something else. Maybe Walmart would be better or selling cars. But I am 57 now so I do not know, all I know ias that it Ecolab sucks. Can't wait to retire.

Matt L (Unknown)

I was sucked in to Ecolabís law suit, later to find out they only paid us half of what it was and it was taxable so we got screwed again by how much Ecolab Sucks. Take that to the Bank Ecolab Violates many laws and I encourage whistleblowers to come forward. Ecolab covers up Termite mistakes and violates the law all the time and the consumer affairs are catching on now. They are under investigation and donít even know it, in due time the fines will be handed down, be aware of working there.

Ecolab in Joliet Il is the worst place to work at. The place is a fuckin dump and the new bitch Mary Kelly (HR) thinks she can turn the company NON UNION. Hahahaha. No Fuckin way. The equipment we use to package our products is like 50 years old. All they do is preach about safety but the whole place is a ticking time bomb. The money is the only reason why all of us stay. We work too much over time and have no time for our families. They draft you in early and draft you to stay over when theres nothing to even fucking do? I can't wait until a REAL plant manager comes along and someone that actually cares in (HR) to help run the plant better. Benefits suck as well. They use temp workers and tell them that they will hire them soon and string them along until the temps have had enough. All i can say is that theres more to life than WORK. FUCK ECOLAB. FUCK ALL...well not ALL. But the vast majority of the managers and supervisors at Ecolab in Joliet Il.

Dawn (Unknown)

My husband worked as a TM for 3 years for Ecolab in Colorado, and at first he was really exited to work for this company, as they put on a pretty good show in the beginning. However, once he really got into the job, things were a different story. For one, his territory was massive, he would be working in one end of the state and get a call 200 miles away and he had to go there that day. Because each territoy was worth a certain amount of money, the big wigs that create these areas had no concept that you cannot be visiting all your accounts in a month if they are spread out over 500 miles apart. Very different than the Denver area accounts where they are all located within 10 miles of one another. He was never recognized for his hard work, they just had dumb contests to win a jacket to see who could replace the most squeeze tubes in a month. Also, he was classified as an outdoor salesman, which means he was exempt, so no overtime, no extra pay for call. Finally he got fed up working so much and quit. Since he left, they have gone through countless people in that same job, as after a few months, people just can't take it anymore (you think someone would get a clue and try to hire extra help or break up the area).He ended up being involved in a class action lawsuit that settled this past summer for back wages. I would not recommend this company unless they can get their act together and realize they need to treat their employees better.

Ecolab is one of the BEST companies out there & if you didn't ask the right questions before you ACCEPTED to job, then shame on you. Employers like hard workers, not cry babies. REMEMBER THAT!

I was a form er Supervisor at Martinsburg DC. Thjis place is a joke, management is allowed to treat Supervisors/employees any way they want. They have people with no DC experience in management making decissions and HR backs them on it when they dont know their $$$ from a hole in the ground. Dont even think about going to Corporate to complain because they dont care either. Myself and another employee have a lawsuit against the big ECO right now. Harassment and discrimination are very serious with our labor law standards. I cant wait to see them pay!! I hope our actions will make it better for anyone who is brain dead ebough to accept a position in the future. The people who are happy with the Company are the little pets who run to HR and tattle on everyone when they sneeze. If you are not in the click with K.D. you are doomed. I have never kissed $$$ to keep a job and hers in sone I definately will not stoop to!!

Martinsburg is a joke. It is a dictatorship. You have no say in anything that directly affects you. H.R. constantly lies about everything that it is asked. People who should be fired get to keep their jobs even when they violate policy repeatedly. The CLICK is where it is at. If you kiss ass and suck really well, you are alright.

Response to Ex Supervisor. Thanks for letting me know about this website! And thank you for calling and asking me to back you in your lawsuit.....you know I have your back. Seriously it was good to hear from you. I have also spoken to my attorney and things are rolling. These posts are hilarious....I said when I heard about JT that they wouldn't fire Sean because they would have to fire JT and he is their snitch. Amazing they both kept their job! TEEHEEHEE! I thought I was the only one who noticed the plant Manager wearing the same suit for 3 years. The one thing that sets me at ease is to know that judgement day is around the corner for people there in upper management. Some peoples butts are grass and we have the lawn mowers!! Maybe after all of this is said and done Corp will clean house and get real Managers and not a plant manager who keeps his balls in Kathy's purse! I am still trying to get in touch with S to see if she is willing to go in with us on this but havent had any luck yet. Back to the posts, thank who ever clarified that Carman is not a man. Answer to a long time question. As far as Pat Jordan, bet you wouldnt say that to his face. I do work at Ecolab in Martinsburg and am not any happier than any of you but as I always say...you cant fight congress but you can obtain an attorney to fix what you cant, that is what I have done and I have been assured that if I am retaliated against we will be back in court! Stand up for yourself and make an attempt to make things better. I am a Supervisor right now but I am standing up for what I feel is right.

To Unknown Comic.... For those who dant know the results odf the continuing saga, here goes.... Jt did in fact return to his shift but his catr still isnt running correctly. I hear they are waiting for a slow day to finish the repair. Victor is still working on remedial speach and is making progress. Eric is predicted to shit his pants again but is taking all precautions to prevent it on the floor, hear he is taking Kaopectate before work now! Good luck Eric!! The plant manageer is going to get his 1 suit cleaned to eliminate the smell. Ray's medication should kick in soon. It is still undetermined if pockets has hands.

Who is the Joliet Fac Mech that is off the deep end, so that I know to stay clear of him?

(Unknown)

If you are so unhappy at the Martinsburg plant, why not U-N-I-O-N-I-Z-E????!!!!

ArchStanton (Unknown)

A sure way to dump Martinsburg management is to unionize. Ecolab Corporate will treat the management team harshly if a union forms under their watch.

(Unknown)

Maybe those of us at Martinsburg should consider the union. Since we have no one to protect us in management,
that would be something that would help us!!!

Reliabitity Manager job in Atlanta is on the board...Glad to hear Parkinson is gone and Nicholson is retiring. Get rid of Anderson and this would be a good company.

Janis (Unknown)

Ecolab is only out for themselves they do not care about the employees as they say they are a dime a dozen

JFQ (Unknown)

Good riddance to SpongeBob Nicholson, who I think did a lot of damage at Joliet. Now, if Anderson would just move aside so that I can keep moving up before I retire.

Well make it another month at Joliet. Same shit soap opera. Marry k is a cunt who needs a upper lip waxing while sitting there lying out here mouth to you when you need help or a question answered. Wait does she lie to herself maybe there's a medical issue there? She's a ugly person and for that many people hope her a painful fall or car wreck. Next this month Paul P is going to be wearing Jerry f q pants. Hahaha wow all them 14 hours days and coming in to spy on his mech on all them weekends paid off. Good job Paul. Life can't be that bad at home to be At this soap factory all them hours ? Or is it? Then we have that tight shirt button about to pop off and take out a eye Jeff d. The plant hoss. Always talking safety does he know the lawsuit I hand him if I got blasted with one of them shirt buttons? And that man could lose a few inches around that belly hell he might trip on less shit if he could see his feet hahahah. Ever since Jerry f q left Joliet ecolab has been going down hill. Bless that man. And what's up with everyone calling OSHA on the management here. Can't we all get along. Jeff the belly said OSHA this place was a nice place. But from the workers OSHA was handing out money ticket that could shut this place down come on this place makes the cheddar we can pay them fines from how marry k saves money on lying to people about medical. Then the in house fire brigade wants to protest cuz they ain't getting free lunch so a 1/3 of them quit haha pussys. Then the planners here are a soap opera buy them selfs. Jeremy N has have to have some nude pics of someones wife to be able to fuck up as much as he does just ask Sherri C she tell u all about him. Shot she even packs up folders of his mistakes and head up to Jeff d office so Paul save some one on one to listen to her emotions. It never get old at this place!!!peace

PP can handlde whatever is thrown his way... no doubt. Don't know too much about Joliet but Hotlanta is in deep popo. I am happily removed stealing Ecolab employees that are WAS.

Disgruntled (Unknown)

I worked in Huntington Ecolab and was fired for taking FMLA.3 days.I worked there almost 2 years. Now I can't get unemployment but people who just straight out point out or who yell at the supervisor can get theirs.

JolietBulkFiller (Unknown)

Please, just let me retire and sell my stock before something bad happens here. They have cut back safety and maintenance so much that someone will get hurt very badly at some point. We are living on borrowed time, and Ecolab will have to pay the piper at some point. Making money now and pushing off issues into the future can only go on for so long before someone gets killed, like at Atlanta in the 1990s.

ecotards (Unknown)

You people are useless how hard its it to put soap in a bottle? Boy its so tough. Where else can you idiots go and make the money your making with a ged? You don't like your job quit! Proudly huntington ecolab.

I was introduced to the "chemical" industry in Australia by Economic Laborities (Now ECOLAB)My training was going to the office, filling out paperwork then going out with a T.M. who went and had his car washed, had lunch and then went o a 5 star hotel in Sydney to service a flight dishwasher. I had never seen a commercial dishwasher let alone service one. We then went back to the office where I was given a car and customer cards. 2 days later I was expected to install a "Guardian" system (solid capsule dishwasher system) on a brand new dishwasher. trying to tell then I was not a electrician and it was illegal for me to connect anything hard wired to electricity did not seem to worry them. There comment was "we are covered for this by insurance" Me worring about killing somebody or myself was not even on the adgenda. I was sacked the day they opened the new office in Sydney reason given >>> NONE I had lasted 2 years which was pretty good for them in those days. I got revenge by joining another chemical company and got quite a few of my old customers back. It was like I had been brain washed. It was the Ecolab way or you were a dick head. I even reported a senior rep to Ecolab management for delibertly damaging a oppisition chemical dispenser. There reply... Thats business for you. He is doing his job. Not my way of doing business though.
After 8 years I changed to another chemical company which was at that stage the most sucessful AUSTRALIAN OWNED chemical company in the country. ECOLAB "merged" with them about 5 years later and with in 6 months had lost 40 to 60% at a guess of the customers as well as the staff "moving on" including me.
A good neighbour of mine worked for a small privatly owned chemical company. Great guy BBQ,s beer, fishing and just a great guy. He joined Ecolab and with in 6 months he was brain washed. No more fishing just incase he got called out after hours. No drinking just in case he got called out. NO LIFE.
They have just finished "merging" with the last of a proud Australian company which with hand on heart decloration stated that all jobs would be safe and nobody need worry. About 70% of the staff have now gone from the company.
The Ecolab managers are so full of them selves and think of nothing but when to have the next meeting to discuss what to have a meeting about.
You are a number not a human. They will destroy anybody and careers to make them feel good. They will send managers over seas for "meetings" and "conferances" but will not pay the factory staff 1/2 hour overtime to get orders out that are urgent or pay for couriers to send orders out that they have messed up. I have never been so happy to be out of the industry.

Atlanta's new Mgr has canned his Ops Mgr and the word is the Maintenance group is ready to revolt. Gifford's replacement has canned any advancement in the CMMS area and Nicholson is still dysfunctional. Parkinson is gone, Nicholson is retiring...only one more son to go...

JolietBulkFiller (Unknown)

What do you expect? Atlanta's Mgr makes enemies and leaves casualties and disgruntled employees wherever he goes. He has no principles, but is just a yes man and a weather vane for whoever his boss is. Like Joliet, like Atlanta; just hope no one gets badly hurt or killed there.

mrreliability (Unknown)

Agreed JolietBulkFiller, The damage is not just specific to ATL and JOL (Only CAST Plants), but the Engr Mgr from Garland is gone as is the Engr Mgr from Huntington. Old Bill keeps his youngsters and chases off his seasoned help. Losing Ecolab was the best move of my life. I now work for a company that is not anal about the budget and understands how to build a successful business model. Best of luck to you. And you are right, safety is a buzz word, not a philosophy with Ecolab.

Martinsburg is a joke when it comes to job postings, they know who management wants and makes it a point to give it to them. They post the job then take it down with a lame excuse then repost it after they make sure that there pick puts in for it rather you are quilified for the pisitionor not. The wharehouse in martinsburg is a perfect example of that. just check with the lovebirds JS & SM . you can find them in the parking lot .Hey management checkm the cameras, you be surprise the porno show the two put on

Pissed off in maintenance (Unknown)

We now have to wear new uniforms that are long sleeved and thick a hell thanks to the douche bags in joliet. Every time you fuckers dont get your way and cry over dumb shit the rest of us have to suffer. Can't you assholes just clock in and do your jobs and collect your unearned paychecks? Fuck no you bitches have to piss and moan I hope your union folds and they fire all the dead weight. Stop making waves do your jobs and shut the fuck up. Useless peices of shit.

As for u getting skipped out on for that previous mixer position you're right they didnt want you. Just the same way the warehouse didnt want you either. You got lucky the 2nd time it was posted and thats all there is to it. Has nothing to do with ur ability to work. I've told you to your face before and i'll tell u again. I dont like you and that you are by far the dumbest person i've ever met. You look like an inbreed version of ed powell and the intelligence of a piece of shit that refuses to be flushed down a toilet. Nobody fuckin cares that your dad is some sorta union rep. As for your last comment bout SM...you might wanna get your facts straight before runnin your mouth. Not exactly someone you wanna fuck with cuz you will regret it at some point. Thats not a threat either, its a promise! Watch ur back asshole!!!! As for the cameras u can have ur wife check em while shes sittin on her ass doin nothin in the lab.

Ben (Unknown)

Hey Mox, this is Ben. My wife called me today and said that Carmen (2nd shift mixer) told her that someone from first shift read something on the internet saying that you wanted to fight me over something I supposedly said on some Ecolab Hate Blog. She said that someone claiming to be me said something negative about you and said something about you and some blonde having sex in the parking lot. I've never even heard about this site until today August 9, 2011 so I thought it kind of odd that someone claiming to be me said something about you. It took me a while but I finally found the site and looked down through it till I saw my name. I don't know who wrote the stuff about Ecolab unionizing in Martinsburg but IT WAS NOT ME. You can chose not to believe me if you wish. That is your business. Do I think that a union might protect people like yourself from getting screwed out of a mixing job that you deserved: yes. Do I want to end up jobless like the folks up in Hebron who kept pushing union: no. And I would definitely agree that I got lucky to get the mixing job... no doubt about it. I thought there was no way they were going to give it to me, but I wasnít going to turn it down either. Obviously after reading what you had to say on the blog, I know how you feel about me and that's fine. As for you, I still have nothing against you. You work hard, you obviously care about your family greatly so I respect you. As far as I know or at least by what you told me weeks ago, you hate Jen who I assume is the JS talked about on the blog. Whoever wrote that on the blog obviously has something against one or the two of you so you might want to check into that but it was not me. Moving on, if you still don't believe me and want to fight, that is your choice. For future reference, if you think that I said something about you behind your back, come confront me before you go off on some blog about me. I do know one thing though, whoever wrote that on that site is probably scared out of their mind that you're going find out who they really are. For anything that I have said or done to offend you in the past, I apologize but I will not apologize for this because I did not do it. I will say that I'm not comfortable with you bringing my wife into this and insulting her because I know for a fact that she has never said or done anything to you to deserve that. On the other hand I know how I would feel and act if someone were saying things like that about my character. So in this situation I will let it go. If you want to talk about this face to face you know where I will be all night so don't hesitate. Once again, I have nothing against you and I can understand the fact that you would want to defend yourself so on my end there is no hatred or grudge to be held.

Now, to whoever is on here talking about Mox, Jen, JT, Sean, or anyone who is not here to defend themselves or has never heard of this site to even respond in their own defense, your time will come. Grow up. If you really dislike someone, talk to them about it. Donít be a spineless coward who resorts to saying everything behind someoneís back that you wish you had the guts to say face to face.

Joliet Bulk Filler (Unknown)

Well, I guess that kind of quieted down things some. Instead of picking on each other, I suggest we pick on the corporate and plant management, which is the true source of the Ecolab greed, and where all the safety and productivity issues arise. Workers of the world unite!

JolietBulkFiller (Unknown)

I think all of us workers need to get along, now that the drama has ended. Can we all agree that our management is the real issue and the real obstacle to our progress and job satisfaction?

(Unknown)

A threatened Joliet african american (Unknown)

A sad few weeks ago in a Joliet liquids meeting with workers and ecolab supervisors there was a hard to paint comment made on the black race. While an shy african american was in the meeting and did not stand up for himself, a white person did turn the racist in. Although the white liquids superviser didn't do anything to the offender due to they are buddy's. He was told not to speak like that. Then after he heard the up roar the blacks were making about the commet he worked a deal to have one day off with no pay. Does a day off justify this mans nasty voice calling racist tones that he spat at his coworkers and at another african american while looking at him in his eye?? One day for many more days of insults of having to look at this guy and hear in our mind what he said over and over again. I don't need to be reminded of my color. All I have to do is look at my skin and I see my color, I don't need a white devil tossing slurs out in a safe work place that of ecolab 3001 chanahonn rd Joliet il. 60436 815-729-7380 ask for Paul Putch( he's the go to man)
When a few of us went to seek a answer from the plant manger Jeff (over weight) demeny. He said he was not aware of the comment. So here is the break down in ecolab management. Noone knows what's going on in the back nor do they care. We need Jesse Jackson and the NAACP. This white boy ain't going call us like that. And that boss is guilty too. So he are the facts. The
african american that was in the meeting and heard the negative slur and said nothing was a liq mixer ,
Ramsy perry. The white supervisor in there was Dawn Cooper. A few others in the meeting that did not believe what they heard come from the mouth of non other than Kevin Kubzak or pet name "kubie" The garbage he spewed from his mouth as he stood up in the meeting was "I'm tierd of you working me like a NIGGER". It hurt me to write that. And even to go back and see that word makes my eyes hurt. As I think back on all our black slaves in the field just a picking away or as kubie would have said it working me!! we need to rework these young minds of today and not let the words of our race interfere with a cloudy misjudgement of bad taste. Now is one day off good for him?? And letting him lick that day so he could have a long weekend yes there is more to this there always is at the soap story of ecolab. Ty. Stay tuned.

I wish Paul (scarface) Putch would get on the stick and do something about that. But, he replaced someone who was just as bad or worse, JFQ just a yesman for management

(Unknown)

Joliet Ecolab is a joke!!! ALL mgmt. should be fired. Jeff (Peter Griffin) Demeny is about done for as plant mgr, his 2 yrs. is up. Putch wont be far behind, totally worthless. Employee morale is non-existent, I can count on one hand the # of fellow workers I actually trust also, most will stab you in the back given the chance.

mmreliability (Unknown)

We All Friends,

Sorry, but you are wrong. My name is Jeff Swing and I was Maintenance Manager @ Kay (Greensboro) from 2007-2009 and Engineering Manager @ Atlatna from 2009-2010. I was fired for doing Doug Parkinson's and Bill Nicholson's dirty work. I posted out of my dislike for Ecolab, not for defined personal reasons. As for Putch, he was a valued resource for me on CAST issues and I will back his play anytime. You all are right, $$$ runs the world for Ecolab upper mgmt. If you need further information, I'm not hard to find.
