    Former Employee - Route Sales Representative in Wichita, KS
    Former Employee - Route Sales Representative in Wichita, KS

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

    Pros

    If you have a clean driving record they will give you a chance
    They supply uniforms and have benefits

    Cons

    Long hours 14 hour on the clock (up to)
    benefits not great. very high deductible and premium for medical
    to make up for holidays off you will have to work weekends and days off before and after the holiday (I worked almost every weekend between Thanksgiving and New Years)
    Management style is very abusive verbally
    handheld computers and equipment very old and unreliable.
    no matter what they say 80-90% of route days you will work 10-14 hours a day with pay between $100-120. A few days you will get between $200 plus a day.
    I was on vacation and they (Schwan's call center) called me up with complaints on my fill in person.
    Sometimes its hard to get days off when sick.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you push employees enough they will leave.

    I worked at Schwan's full-time (more than 5 years)

    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
