    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.

    Interview

    Will waste your time enourmously. More than 5 phone interviews, 2 in person, and then a 12 hour ride along day. You will not be compensated for this ride along but you will be asked to work.

    • They ask weird ones, about where you went to high school and college. Most questions will be asked multiple times but multiple people. That gives you a good idea how they run their company, poorly.   1 Answer

    normal interview process, nothing out of the normal, very to the point and very professional. I would say only weird thing was a lot of online testing and such to get hired. Sitting in the recruiters shoes it is a necessary thing .

    Route Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    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
