    I worked at Schwan's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. They hire frequently 2. Commission to be had by all who earn it 3. Good group of personable characters working there

    Cons

    1. Weekly shifts in product focus. 2. Management not familiar with local demographics 3. 60-75 hour work weeks. The salary is a joke if your depot does not hit its sales metrics 4. Working every weekend if depot is tanking 5. Frequently peel off Builder customers to replace with lost customers on actual routes 6. Local ordinances preventing you from legally selling in all markets 7. It's D-2-D, not B-2-B.
