    I have been working at Schwan's full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Meeting some really nice people

    Cons

    Terrible motivational tactics. It;s a government program and what I mean is this. They put so many roadblocks in front of you that sales is sometimes impossible.. In sales you need to take as many obstacles out of the RSRs way so he can succeed. They say all the time that "it's your business" but they want to control it..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They give every excuse for terrible sales except that this is the worse economic downturn in decades. I do a town where mining is the only employer and sales is a piece of cake, however, my other says are former construction hot beds and are very depressed and sales reflect that..My Regional Sales Manager who I believe is out of California came to our depot and for 1 hour tried to motivate us while threatening to close the depot. He also mentioned that he was a college graduate and what he studied on several occasions which told me that he was insecure with his position...I have a college degree, but never need to let my customers or anyone else for that matter know..Schwans has been going down for the last decade according to the video the CEO showed a couple months ago. I would suggest they rebuild management just like any other company. Stop the juvenile tactics that have failed for the last decade and move to some young and smarter innovators that would contribute to the company..
