    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Schwan's (Topeka, KS) in August 2017.

    Interview

    A phone interview was scheduled via email by the recruiter that interviewed me. That went well, so the recruiter scheduled an interview for me with the local manager. After my interview with the regional manager, I was asked to do a ride-along. The ride-along is unpaid and takes a full day (10am-8:30ishpm). The regional manager then scheduled an interview for me with the zone manager. Then I was offered the position, and I took a DOT physical and drug screen before my I could start working.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Schwan's (Portland, OR).

    Interview

    I completed an application online and spoke with an HR person. She scheduled a time for a phone interview with the person who would be my supervisor. The person explained that those who put in the most hours succeed. I mentioned that I recognize to be successful, you often put in additional hours early on, to get up to speed with your responsibilities and the company's processes. He chuckled and said, "No, most people do 10-12 hour days every day, on average." It was after comment that I declined to move forward in the hiring process. I was applying for a local rep position, not managerial.

    Field Leadership Training Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Schwan's.

    Interview

    The process itself seemed quite unorganized and chaotic with multiple people being involved in the process prior to the first in-person interview. Interviewer did not seemed prepared for when I arrived at the location. It was nice that the interviewer was honest about the purpose of the program and hours involved. This position would require 50+ hours a week and has the end goal of managing a distribution depot.

    RSR Route Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Clayton, DE
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Schwan's (Clayton, DE) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Unprofessional. The interviewer talked to me with a mouth full of dip(tobacco) the whole time. His warehouse leader came in, a woman, several times flirting and touching each other. The priority was certainly not my interview. He acted as if he'd never seen a resume before. The interviewer used profane language in discussing the jobs and current and former employees. Unprofessional at the highest level.
