    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

    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

    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.
