Former Employee - Senior Material Handler in Fort Worth, TX
Former Employee - Senior Material Handler in Fort Worth, TX

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

    I worked at Schwan's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some great people that work at Schwan's.

    Cons

    Claim to want to keep the best people, yet seem to go outside for most hires that they make.
    Large amount of middle age middle manager's that have no desire to advance their career thus blocking any younger talent from climbing the ladder.
    Stuck in a 1970's-1980's mindset on the business.
    One of the only businesses capable of employing recent college grads so they can name a salary and you are kind of stuck if you want to stay in the area.

    I have been working at Schwan's full-time (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.
