    Former Employee - RSR in Madison, WI
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Schwan's full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Weekly pay, food discounts customers that want you there

    Cons

    Long hours(12+), Old trucks and equipment that doesn't work, overpriced food. forcing you to stop at old customers that don't want service anymore to convince them to buy the over priced food, Ridiculous morning group stretching and cheers. Cant call in sick because there is usually no one to run the route for you always short handed due to huge turnover rate

    Advice to Management

    Stop living in the 80's Realize that people only were willing to put up with ridiculous hours when there were the big incentives. now that they are gone there are other opportunities in the market that are much better. You have no life outside Schwans here!
