I worked at Schwan's full-time

Pros

Employee engagement, flexible work environment, commitment to excellence and resources allocated to drive success.

Cons

Can't stress enough the importance of networking, networking and more networking with people lateral to yourself in leadership roles as well as equally if not more so with all persons in roles senior to yourself. This certainly helps with ensuring your relevance in the organization and the value-add you are attempting to deliver each day.

    I worked at Schwan's full-time (Less than a 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 Management

    If you push employees enough they will leave.
