I have been working at Schwan's full-time for more than a year

Pros

Schwan's has drawn a lot of really smart people - this keeps me on my toes. This is a family company, despite the passing of Alfred and Marvin. Many of the principles of the founders still resonate today. I have been given many opportunities and look forward to more.

Cons

Only downside is that it is a privately held company that adheres to public company practices. While I certainly care about quarterly and yearly results, sometimes, the right decision is right. We need to be able to take advantage of doing the right thing because we can, not because the ROI is less than 2 years,

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a way to reinvigorate the family atmosphere at the depots. They are the backbone to the process and we need to ensure they have the same sense of engagement as those in the office.

    Pros

    Good place to get networking going on and meet new people..

    Cons

    Very rough hours seeing around 14 as a csr and if you work nights like I did I enjoyed it but got hurt and then later terminated due to being out of work and waiting on insurance to approve surgery but never did. Then was never paid... I do not advise working here unless you are desperate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat others with respect and attempt to put flex routes back in the system... imo
