    Interview Details

    Friendly, not thorough at all. Easy to get the job because of the turnaround. The talking interview lasted a total of about 5 minutes. I think they just wanted to take anyone who didn't have scars on their face. It was very easy to pass the interview and move on to the drug test.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Schwan's in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Initial application must be made online. All preliminary hiring decisions are made through the HR office, calling the local depot to speak with a manager will not be effective, nor will you be able to access HR through outside means. If selected, an initial interview will be given by the manager of the depot that you applied for. After this, a packet will be given to obtain a DOT mandated physical exam and urinalysis. In a couple of weeks, a ride along day will be scheduled in which you will tail an RSR for an entire day observing the work process. A final interview will then be scheduled. About a week after that, final HR approval will be sent down and you will start training.

    Interview Questions
    • Expect the obvious, such as previous sales experience, experience working on commission, etc. One the questions that surprised me was regarding family life. This position requires a minimum of 60 hours a week, and many routes require staying out of town overnight. This puts an enormous strain on the family, and questions during the interview will deal with this.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    For this position nothing is negotiable. Basic pay and commission levels are the same, no matter how much experience or time in.

    Interview Details

    HR background check outsourced to HireRight - not very good, and does not take into account what the employee requests for privacy and confidentiality - ie called my current and past employers.
    I was not sure what the offer package was during the interview process.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Schwan's in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    First let me say this, I'm not sure if women apply for this job with Schwan's, but I did. I'll explain later. So
    I applied online and got a call a day later by a human resource woman asking if I was available for a phone interview. So the recruiting lady called and asked me several questions to see if I would qualify for a 1:1. I took an assessment test online and a personality test as well and passed both. A couple days later, I got a call for a 1:1 interview in Ofallon, MO. I walked in and met the interviewer. We sat down and the only question he asked was what do I know about Schwan's, so I told him. First of all, I asked more questions than he did. The only thing he did was go through the day of a route sales person then asked if I had any questions. Now when I asked about women applying for this job is after he was done telling about the day, he kept dissuading me from even wanting to try the job by telling me that most of the "guys" there only make the minimum sales most days and that most of them have quit. Now I thought this was a bad sign, him putting down the job like that. But he wanted me to NOT want the job and I do tend to think it is because I'm a woman. I don't know if this company is discriminatory against women, but Ofallon seems to be. Anyway after the way he "conducted" the interview, I'm glad he didn't call for a an offer, however, If it was due to me being a woman and that was the only reason then this company should be looked into.
