Schwan's Consumer Brands Sales Rep

Customer Sales Representative (Current Employee)

I have been working at Schwan's full-time for more than 8 years

ProsIndependence, paid car usage, reasonably good commissions, decent benefits

ConsLong hours, minimal effort to address work-life balance, lack of strategic planning, terrible internal communication, definite lack of advancement opportunity.

Advice to Senior ManagementBetter communication is needed at all levels.
A clear strategic plan to guide the company for more than the next quarter would help.
Some sort of plan for career advancement is needed (and sorely lacking.)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
