POOR PAY PLAN

DO NOT WORK for SCHWANS (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsWhen you first start out you get to go to a special training class 40HRS. You get to eat SCHWANS products and the food is great. You are guaranteed $750 a week for a set period of time and overtime for extra days worked. But when you go on full commission forget it, SEE BELOW>

ConsNot one route at my depot was making any kind of Chairman club dollars! Thats the top maybe 1% of routes in ILLINOIS. The guys that have those routes are pretty much rural where there is no shopping for people. Because SCHWANS prices are kinda high people look for value deals. No onin my depot has ever been a success and they just keep revolving the door for new suckers. You will not be able to make the numbers they put out there. This place sucks so run away......

Advice to Senior ManagementGet with the times,your company sucks for employees. You treat them like dogs 60 hrs a week on avg. Mgrs dont do $@%#, they just send you out and are there when u get back if your lucky. Your company sux. Undercover boss would have a field day with this s#$@#y company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
