Current Employee - Territory Sales Leader
Current Employee - Territory Sales Leader

I have been working at Schwan's full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

You get out of it what you put in to it. Good opportunity to make money if you follow the plan and work hard. Decent benefits and 401K. Mostly good people to work with.

Cons

As of late,way too much micro management. They used to talk of having an entrepreneurial spirit and that is what drove the company. Now it's exactly their way or the highway. Too many reports and paperwork and not enough time to work with the employees in the field.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let the local managers and district managers run their sales companies and hold them accountable to the results.

    I have been working at Schwan's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Insurance but it's not that great.
    You do meet and make some great friends on your route.

    Cons

    As a RSR we can't manage our own routes do to company policies, yet they say "take care of your routes."
    Our trucks are always broken down forcing Saturday work schedules costing us sales and COMMISSION, but as a company they don't care and won't even listen to possible fixes or ideas from their guys and gals who knock doors every day.
    The call center is useless as they duplicate current customers as well as pull people off your route and assign them to the incorrect route costing you commission.
    Making 1% commission on everything sold until you sell 900.00 is a slap in the face.
    Dump the idiotic "at location metrics". Why drive across town to someone who has already called you saying they don't want service?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to a GOOD base pay like a 2 years ago.
    Quit micro managing our routes and quit limiting your RSR's resources.
    Buy new HHC that can handle the new software.
