    I worked at Schwan's full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    1. They hire frequently
    2. Commission to be had by all who earn it
    3. Good group of personable characters working there

    Cons

    1. Weekly shifts in product focus.
    2. Management not familiar with local demographics
    3. 60-75 hour work weeks. The salary is a joke if your depot does not hit its sales metrics
    4. Working every weekend if depot is tanking
    5. Frequently peel off Builder customers to replace with lost customers on actual routes
    6. Local ordinances preventing you from legally selling in all markets
    7. It's D-2-D, not B-2-B.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The rotating news at the door promos are a joke. Who wants or would even consider buying items that are out of season? It's one thing to release a new product and have it be pushed to gauge it's reception and plausible life cycle, it's entirely another to REQUIRE it to be sold in set quantities. Due to this requirement, all CSMs lean on legacy customers to buy additional to make up for all the shortfall.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
  2. Schwan's Home Service is a top-notch, customer centric organization.

    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.
