    Route Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Schwan's (Denver, CO) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was quick and efficient, first a call from a recruiter and then a call from a local manager. I was asked to do a ride along for a day to see if the job would be something that I would like to do. The manager was extremely nice as well as the driver that I did my ride along with. Overall the company seemed to be a good company. I believe that there is some re-structuring going on company-wide, but it seems as if the changes are going to benefit the employees. Overall it was a pleasant and good experience.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked if I would be available for evenings and Saturdays. I was asked if I could pass a DOT exam and testing. The company is very customer service based, so I was asked various scenario questions as well.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Schwan's (Brush, CO) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Outsourced initial interview over phone after online application. Face to face with Depot /Territory, very elementary interview. DOT MEDICAL and outsourced background check where you will do all the leg work in providing documentation to investigators. Inter view with Zone manager again simple, vague and very one sided.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Schwan's in March 2015.

    Interview

    First portion of the process was a basic phone interview with HR. After that I had a one on one with the depot manager. It was a straight forward interview asking things like: why do you want to work here, what do you know about the company, etc. After the depot manager I had a phone interview with the district manager. This lasted about 30 minutes. Overall one of the easiest interview processes I have experienced.

    No negotiation. Job offer was set in stone and offered at $115.00 per day during training. Commission wouldn't be offered until after the MGR felt I was ready to task the job as a full salesman. Usually 6 weeks is what I was told.

    Interview

    Easy, be yourself, don't lie or hide any information. One on one interview, then a phone interview with a higher up in the company, after that you are required to complete a drug test. After you pass everything Schwan's will train you for the job, typically takes 6 weeks complete but you are paid training pay.

    Quick and simple - you first have to pass a phone screen where you are able to speak with one of the leading members of the leadership team if that goes well they will call you in for a one on one interview at one of the depot's where the trucks operate out of. If they like you they will give you a conditional just like any other employer after that you are on the fast track to becoming a schwans route sales representative. The overall experience was very professional and friendly.
