This was a very unrewarding job because of managements constant changing of policies

RSR/CSM (Former Employee) Woodland, CA

ProsI was my own boss once I left the depot.
Earning potential is virtually limitless
Discount on food which is really good
Uniform provided free of charge

ConsVery long hours which is expected
Huge inconsistency from management with regards to implementation of company objectives
Constantly hiring the wrong people
No sick leave
Company truck breaks down, you have to work on your day off
Mechanic does as little as possible to make necessary repairs
Loading of trucks is always off which can and does cost you money
Never management's fault for low sales (that is what they want you to think but they hire the goofballs constantly)
Your best is never enough

Advice to Senior ManagementPut away your egos and collared shirts and company credit cards and lower yourself to a RSR's position and try to remember what it is to be a Schwan's route driver and the struggles and frustrations that are always there

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
