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

    Pros

    Employee discount 40% if you order online
    Good 401k compared to most places

    Cons

    if your an RSR long hours poor pay unless you luck into a route that hasn't been wrecked by someone who hated their job.
    If your an material handler poor pay, very little growth options, and they expect you to skip breaks so you can get done quicker then they send you home so they look good on scorecard for not using all the labor hours.

    Advice to Management

    Change scorecard so bad managers can't cut their works hours so they get a bonus
    Work on fixing work life balance for both Rsr and MH's

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

    Pros

    Most customers are great, get to be out and about working alone with little direct supervision. Good products.

    Cons

    Corporate management wants to micromanage everyone. 3 different pay plans in last 2 years, none really for the "better". 50$ guarantee plus 1% commission until sales top 900 for the day. Company only looks for new customers thru word of mouth referrals, or by salesman knocking doors. No advertising support, except some online ads. Out of date equipment, software, policies. Company refuses to accept or acknowledge when new things don't work, but instead continues to try and force them upon everyone. Depot management hired from outside of the company with no knowledge of our actual job or products. 10-14 hour days everyday, and company expects you to account for every single minute of it.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your offices, and get into the real world. Spend a few days per month on a truck with the RSRs, and not just the "best of the best," so you will see what really goes on. Better pay for the hours required, better work life balance, promote up from within so management really knows the job and people and products. Work at changing how current employees feel about their careers, we are the face of your company.
