I have been working at Schwan's

Pros

Good compensation depending on the job title, flexibility in scheduling of hours.

Cons

Too much expected of field employees, too many incompetent field employees. Too many hours demanded when incompetent fellow employees drop the ball (Drivers, CSR's, Merchandisers, etc.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to focus on the work/life balance of your field employees more, not just your administrative staff.

    I have been working at Schwan's full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Except for the fantastic customers, there are currently zero pros to be working for this company.

    Cons

    The company is drowning. They are grasping for air. Management has no idea what they are doing. They keep changing the pay every couple years, changing vacation, and changing what they looking for to be successful. Whether its Opera, metrics, active customers, etc. It's never sales. Management is all from outside the company. None of them have ran a route day in their life. They are more worried about stats then sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're worried about active customers. Hire a canvasing company to knock doors for new customers. Quit changing things (pay/vacation/requirements). If you're worried about drivers not doing their job; deal with them instead of changing things for all drivers in order to control things. You're making veteran drivers who are keeping this company afloat very upset and are making them antsy to find a life boat before the company drowns and Amazon Fresh takes over.
