    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.

    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
