    Former Employee - Customer Service Manager in Eagan, MN
    Former Employee - Customer Service Manager in Eagan, MN

    I worked at Schwan's full-time (less than an 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.

    Pros

    Discount on food
    Community improvements funded in part by Schwans.
    Schwans University
    Most staff level generally friendly and helpful. Many dedicated long term employees.

    Cons

    All that good Schwans University training doesn't do any good as senior management won't let you practice it!
    Weak senior management.
    Senior management lacks ethics.
    Low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Getting rid of Lenny was good first step. Now get rid of the remaining FOLs (friends of Lenny)!
