    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Schwan's full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Front line of personal selling
    Customers become like family
    Products are high quality and tasty
    You're the boss when you're out there (mostly)

    Cons

    Long hours are expected
    Real family become like guests in your life
    Many variables are uncontrollable such as warehouse crews, managers, product availability
    Cookie cutter approach is preferred over true selling training
    Midwest Minnesota thinking is dominant in upper management thinking

    Advice to Management

    I was with your company for 10 years. It was bittersweet. Revisit your split routes and excellence routes to move away from becoming a dinosaur. Rotate your region banquets with the super national ones. Your drivers are the face of the company. No one outside of your bubble know we own Red Baron, Ms. Smith or Ming etc.

    I have been working at Schwan's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Treat you like a professional manager. Expense account many meals paid for. There is room to move up, many senior management started on the bottom.

    Cons

    65 plus hour weeks, pay not that great. Some people get trained well, some don't. Have to wear many hats some trained well in and many others little or no training.
