I worked at Schwan's full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Company car or car allowance
Good benefits
Good bonuses

Cons

Management unfocused
Customer's unhappy with Corporate policies (distributors do not like Schwans)
Salaries not as high as competitors in industry

Advice to Management

Focus on a few new products a year and market them correctly before you roll out. Too many products rolled out unsuccessfully over the years.

    I have been working at Schwan's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can make great money if your given a good route in a good area. Most customers are super friendly and enjoy the food.

    Cons

    You work almost 12 hours everyday. If your not bringing in $1,100 a day in gross sales your not making hardly anything. They constantly change products and placing preorders isn't the easiest for the customer. They don't do any sort of advertising or marketing at least in WI but I've heard they do advertising in MN where they are based. In 2012 they layed off a bunch off employees.

    Advice to Management

    To many products being taken away and similar ones not added.


  2. "I will say in the beginning good but now very dissatisfied."

    Pros

    The pay is very competitve to other companies if you are male.

    Cons

    Do not offer any decent incentives to do a better job.
    No payed holidays.
    Not a very good benefits package.

    Advice to Management

    They demand respect but do nothing to encourage respect. Respect is something earned not just given. Not a good place for females to work. They have tendancy to overlook females for promotion. They also do not pay females as well. Not very good communication with employees. They should at least offer some kind of holiday pay. No bonuses for drivers.
