Great exposure to water chemistry and chemicals. I treat washout systems for paint over spray in water. It is physically demanding and one has to understand the systems and the effects of each chemical on the water.
It is challenging in that we are a small team, individual accountability is expected at all times and awareness.
Pros
overtime for weekend work
Cons
not a permanent position

My colleagues were very friendly and easy to get along with. Management had an open door policy, which made bringing matters to their attention when necessary very easy. I learned about the food and beverage industry and what Ecolab has to offer the world. The hardest part of my job was sometimes having to say "No". I enjoyed booking travel and accommodation and being able to train staff on a new system that was introduced. A project that was mine from the beginning of the introduction process.
Pros
Less working hours on Friday's
Cons
Poor salary and little to no recognitiion for outstanding performance
