    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Schwan's (Denver, CO) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty simple interview soft sell on company and culture. Really odd background check done by Indian company overseas'. I think this company profiles employees' I worked at a large depot.
    23 drivers all very similar personalities and values, good guys. I think they are just looking for bodies.

    Interview Questions

    • Interest in life, food, people prior jobs really basic easy interview. I did three phone interviews then got to meet the depot manager. A former used car salesman with big ambitions. I thing this is when they decide if they want you or not.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Schwan's (Monroe, NC).

    Interview

    Interviewed by 2 men who made me feel less than important. They seemed bored and sometimes rushed while talking with me. They surely did not give any cons of the job (ie: work-life balance).

    Negotiation

    No negotiation...was told by a manager "it's a take it or leave it job, you can take it or leave and we'll get someone else to do it" This is verbatim to what the manager said to me!

    Associate Packaging Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Schwan's in October 2016.

    Interview

    The process started with a phone interview, and then a Skype interview about 2 weeks later. After another 2 weeks, they flew me into Marshall from Minneapolis on their company plane! It was actually pretty neat I have to say! The in person interview started with a realtor picking me up at the airport and took me to coffee and showed me around Marshall for about an hour. She then dropped me off at the office which is very clean and welcoming! I got to meet the packaging team through hour long 1-on-1s and had others I did not interview with take me to a very good Italian lunch. I felt very at ease around the team and they were more than friendly! Interview questions were more related to my resume and behavioral which was not very difficult while being myself. Overall a very enjoyable time! They made me want to work there! But Marshall is very small and quiet which is perfect for when I'm older and not in my early 20s. Would love to consider their offer in the future!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Schwan's (Napoleon, OH) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Very detailed, many questions. Really got down to what I wanted out of the job and what I thought was expected of me. The area manager was very thorough and got into the questions that really made me think about the job itself. The details of the interview were more involved than other interviews i've gone through.
