Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Schwan's full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Insurance but it's not that great.
You do meet and make some great friends on your route.

Cons

As a RSR we can't manage our own routes do to company policies, yet they say "take care of your routes."
Our trucks are always broken down forcing Saturday work schedules costing us sales and COMMISSION, but as a company they don't care and won't even listen to possible fixes or ideas from their guys and gals who knock doors every day.
The call center is useless as they duplicate current customers as well as pull people off your route and assign them to the incorrect route costing you commission.
Making 1% commission on everything sold until you sell 900.00 is a slap in the face.
Dump the idiotic "at location metrics". Why drive across town to someone who has already called you saying they don't want service?

Advice to Management

Get back to a GOOD base pay like a 2 years ago.
Quit micro managing our routes and quit limiting your RSR's resources.
Buy new HHC that can handle the new software.
