Pros

You have the opportunity to build your route so that you can have a good income. Not locked into an hourly rate where someone else tells you what you're worth. 40% discounts on Schwans food. Plus you get to meet lots of great people on routes!

Cons

Not nearly as much freedom as we had a few years ago. Upper management is micro-managing like crazy! Most of them have never run routes for Schwans and it shows! I understand that you have slackers for whom you have to hold their hands to get them through the day, but, this is nuts!

Advice to Management

To those who came up with the "manifests" in Home Service and the people who approved them - get your heads out of your tech manuals and your rear-ends in the DRIVERS seat of a home service truck! Schwans needs to go through the "undercover boss" process immediately! You could do it internally and "save face."

    Pros

    Very nice benefits, matching 401K after 1 year

    Cons

    About to begin 3rd or 4th commission structure (this one favoring the company, as EVERYONE will be getting less for doing the same amount of work / sales level) in just under 3 years. Upper management is all from outside the company (they seem to favor Coca-Cola and Frito-Lay), and don't seem to have interest in promotion from within.

    Advice to Management

    Jump on a truck once in a while and get a feel for what the drivers face everyday.

    Pros

    New CEO seems to be listening to the employees. In the month's to come, his actions will tell the story of what this company will become.

    Cons

    No flexibility in work life balance, pay is poor in comparison to other companies in the same geographical area and work roles.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the turn of employees and micro management of your employees.
