I have been working at Schwan's full-time (more than a year)

Pros

You can make money benefits are good

Cons

BE prepared to work 12-14 hours a day otherwise you will not make money!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think upper management need to get off there conference calls and run some routes because they can see what these hard working drivers go through. Also make routes more manageable. I cannot understand why drivers are in other drivers routes.

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

    Pros

    Employee discount 40% if you order online
    Good 401k compared to most places

    Cons

    if your an RSR long hours poor pay unless you luck into a route that hasn't been wrecked by someone who hated their job.
    If your an material handler poor pay, very little growth options, and they expect you to skip breaks so you can get done quicker then they send you home so they look good on scorecard for not using all the labor hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change scorecard so bad managers can't cut their works hours so they get a bonus
    Work on fixing work life balance for both Rsr and MH's

    Former Employee - RSR in Hartville, OH
    Former Employee - RSR in Hartville, OH

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

    Pros

    The advantages of this company is that you get a hefty discount on food purchased through their website. Depot manager has experience as a RSR.

    Cons

    Older trucks, very old handhelds, software and GPS software. Sales managers and Load managers don't work together for the good of the organization. 90% of the RSR's are not doing their jobs with honesty and integrity. 90% are scamming the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Every employee, from the CEO down to the lowest hourly position should be accountable
    for one new legit customer a day. Your base would be much greater. Sales higher.
