    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

    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!

    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.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Schwan's (Dayton, OH).

    Interview

    very long and thorough . about 2 or 3 interviews. RIDE DAY with a salesperson to see if you like it its on your own time you commit a 12 hour day. and then 4 weeks or more for background , DOT , license , and drug screen . Also had to ride in a smoky truck for the ride day and its kind of awkward the person is very busy ! So pack your own lunch . Also the person is suppose to answer all questions so make sure you do so. DO NOT STAY IN TRUCK , get out with the RSR and walk to every door because this person is who reports back to the hiring manager if you seemed like you were interested or enjoyed it.

    Interview Questions

    • If you can commit a year before you decide if you want to stay or not . also to not look at pay as hourly but as a career and its residual growth overtime that you commit that creates your salary.   1 Answer

    Director Level Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Schwan's in March 2016.

    Interview

    Initial communication was disorganized and I felt like I was inconveniencing THEM. It was very bizarre and immediately I knew it wasn't a place with a weird vibe. After a follow up call where I asked more questions than the manager, I suspected they weren't sure what they were truly looking for. I described the experience to people I know with ties to the company and each one of them validated that the culture is languishing.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to describe my professional background. This was the extent of my first interview.   Answer Question
