I have been working at Schwan's full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

You have the opportunity to build your route so that you can have a good income. Not locked into an hourly rate where someone else tells you what you're worth. 40% discounts on Schwans food. Plus you get to meet lots of great people on routes!

Cons

Not nearly as much freedom as we had a few years ago. Upper management is micro-managing like crazy! Most of them have never run routes for Schwans and it shows! I understand that you have slackers for whom you have to hold their hands to get them through the day, but, this is nuts!

Advice to Management

To those who came up with the "manifests" in Home Service and the people who approved them - get your heads out of your tech manuals and your rear-ends in the DRIVERS seat of a home service truck! Schwans needs to go through the "undercover boss" process immediately! You could do it internally and "save face."

    I have been working at Schwan's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free food - for now at some places

    Trying to knock off products others have created with a different twist might bring volume

    Cons

    Mediocre (at best) management - Operations / Finance
    Probably pointed to isolated areas where they are located and are left to compromise with the talent they get - many folks in these locations cannot work elsewhere so they remain / or they can only attract those in the back portion of their careers - to coast until retirement

    Advice to Management

    Raise the bar on management performance to deliver - not ONLY about the what you are doing - but HOW you are doing it.
    Sad state of affairs with most directors employed there - wake up and realize WHAT you DONT have
