You get a chance to get a feel for the team and see how you might fit. They are very strict on where you went to school if you don't have the experience.

    Recruitment Administrative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Schwan's.

    Interview Details

    I was asked for a step one phone interview with Schwan's in October 2013. The interview lasted for about 45 minutes and seemed to be more of a "we're trying to get to know you to bring you in." The interviewer was a recruiter based out of the Twin Cities for a job in Marshall, MN. While I initially thought that this was odd, it made sense that an "outside" interview would be necessary for an onsite interview for an HR position. The recruiter was friendly and answered many of my questions about the position and was very upfront about the needs and requirements of the job I was interviewing for.

    Corp enviroment, depending on the position, can be as many as 3 interviews or just come in the door and apply. hiring managers are normally pretty good with some details of the job, but leave some important things out.

    Interview seemed to go very well lasted 2 hours with the depot manager in Mt. Pleasant MI. left with good feeling at the time pretty standard interview nothing very difficult to answer. The only negative was the depot manager kept trying to get us to come back as customers and knew our purchasing history from Schwans.

    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at Schwan's in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    Ok people, the Third interview which consisted of a 12-14hr day with one of the drivers at the company.
    We went all the way out to Grand Junction,TN in which we drove an hour before we got there!! Hold up! From my professional point of view, why would a company send a person who was trying to decide if they wanted to work for them, all the way outside of there city to a place they've never seen before first of all! They never said that routes would be outside of the city second of all. The driver was very professional and friendly and we had a great time, But why would the company send a person out that far for that many hours to make a decision that could've been made in the first 4 hrs. The driver paid for my meals and all so it was nice, But the Manager didn't offer many any money for food and no pay for the day in which turned out to be a total waste of time. I enjoyed talking to the people in Grand Junction, TN they were very friendly people, but the fact is, the company is not going to give you a route that easy, its going to be two times more difficult! We left the Depot at 9:30am and returned at almost 9:00pm, the Mgr told me that he would be there when we got back and he wasn't. All this was Yesterday on Valentine's Day, today, I've received no calls from the Mgr what so ever, and still I have been told about the pay yet. So to Confirm about this company everyone, all the negative reviews that have been posted about this company from the past are all and still true and now up to date. The people are great, but the company is not, so my interview experience will be positive and easy, but your experience with the company will be negative and very difficult. It would be a total waste fo time working for Schwan's.

    Customer Service Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Schwan's in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I met with the hiring manager on December 17, 2010 and it appeared to go quite well. I was told by the HM that a decision would not be made until after the holidays as he would be out for holidays. I followed up with a thank you letter, thanking him for taking the time to interview me.
    Unfortunately, I have not heard from him or any response since the interview.
    I can understand no response if I just sent an application, however they called me for an interview. It would be nice and professional of them to respond one way or another.

    Customer Service Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Schwan's in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Received phone call for interview date of next day. Met with the GM. He was very open and honest with his expectations of very long hours (12+ per day). No Sick Pay, nearly no Holiday Pay. If you are sick you have to make it up on a Saturday, etc. He wanted to make sure everything was explained in order to find the right candidate for the job. I decided that I would not fit into this position as I have an active life outside of work. Two weeks vacation after one year can be taken in 1 week increments. 401k will match up to 5% after first year. Overall experience was positive because he was open and honest. They just need an employee that does not have a life outside of work.
