    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Schwan's.

    Interview Details

    Applied through internships.com. Contacted by HR in about two days. Set up phone interview, she asked typical behavioral questions. It lasted about 10-15 minutes at most. She sent me over to regional manager. He called and we set up a face-to-face interview in Richardson. The interview with him was very laid back, he may have asked one or two behavioral based questions, and the rest was more like a conversation. He called in about a week stating I was hired.

    Recruitment Administrative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed 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.

    Material Handler Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Schwan's.

    Interview Details

    My Hiring and Interview process was very fast and easy. I walked in the door, said that I was looking for work, and the two managers in the room quickly made me feel welcome.

    The managers were relaxed and a bit nutty, They asked me one simple question, jokingly "Are you on any kind of drugs?" I Replied "No." And they started the hiring process, filling out paperwork, and got me connected to HR to fill out my application over the phone.

    The whole process from walking in, to walking out took about 5-10 minutes. I was now on my way to do a drug screening, after which I would wait a few days for my background check to go through.

    During the 2 weeks that it took to get the entire hiring process completed, I was asked to go to a temp labor agency to begin work immediately.

    After the background check cleared, I was hired and given my employee ID# and punch card.

    The full process took 2 weeks.
