    I worked at Schwan's Home Service full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good Pay. Started at 38k with opportunity for commission if you were lucky enough to get a solid route that hadn't already been picked clean by surrounding route drivers

    Cons

    Working 60-70 hours per week with 60 being at the absolute bottom end. I'm told that it was a much better place to work for a family man when Marvin was alive. When he passed and Alfred took over things just got worse and worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lie to your CSMs about corporate deciding that they're unable to run their holiday route on a "build day" so must run entire route then the build day and then run the holiday route on the Saturday prior to the holiday. Not a good idea when men are working 65-70 hours per week. That was the final straw for me and I quit.

    I worked at Schwan's Home Service full-time

    Pros

    Good pay for extremely high performance, used to be a strong proud company, some really good people still around hanging on, great past tradition.

    Cons

    Company on the defensive and hurting from some misdirection, very long hours and demands, lost the strong tradition of truly caring for employees, started closing down more locations as sales overall struggled, constant change of direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Once you lose who your are, you are no more.
