    CSM Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Concord, NH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Schwan's (Concord, NH) in August 2011.

    Interview

    It was pretty quick and somewhat detailed. I interviewed with the district manager who was very nice and was glad to just get to know me. It was very laid back and I did not feel nervous or stressed at all. The only issue I have with the interview was he told me the company believed in a good work/life balance, but that ended up not being the case.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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 .

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Schwan's (Marshall, MN) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Interview was straight forward. Questions, the tour and then your turn to ask questions. Got to eat some Ice cream. The guy that interviewed me was great. He gave me a chance and I honestly didn't think I belonged. I was looking for work to get by. I was there for 4 years. I thought the interview was easy.

    District Sales Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Schwan's (Dallas, TX) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I was first contacted by a Sr. Recruiter on the phone. That conversation lasted about 45 minutes, then was followed up by another phone interview. Following that, I went through a face-to-face interview with an HR manager at a Regional office, then a face-to-face interview with the Regional VP of the area. All interviews were a great experience. I was happy to see the type of qualities they were looking for like "Leadership qualities" instead of "Management capabilities".

    That being said, I didn't get the job... but the experience was extremely pleasant. It inspired me to become a Schwan's customer.

    Interview Questions

    • I was not surprised by any questions really... It felt more like a conversation between professionals than an interview in every case. One question was "can you describe some of your leadership philosophies?"   1 Answer

    District Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Schwan's (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    All conducted via phone. Difficult to do an in depth interview via phone after just finishing a route for 14 hours. One person called at night, asked pre set questions, and another person called early the next morning, and asked more of the same questions. Seems like they were just reading off a list.
