    I worked at Schwan's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The pay is some what a pro but the cons outmatch any pay you’ll make at this company

    Cons

    Quite literally everything about this job is a con

    Advice to Management

    Get new, younger guys. Clean house completely because all of your management are literally disgusting. The things I’ve heard said about wives and children could quite literally collapse your company. Your turn around rate is through the roof because there’s nothing that happens that isn’t the employees fault and you guys hound them to the ground. A thirty minute break for a mandatory 13 hours of work is NOT okay. Stop threatening your employees with termination at every turn. Stop looking for any literal reason to yell and or threaten your employees. Not a soul I worked with in the years I wasted at this company was happy or loving their job. From management to employee. I’ve met quite a few managers and different depots and quite literally all of them and their subordinates are unbelievably disgusting. If you think it’s appropriate to talk about peoples young daughters and wives the way your people do then your horrible. But that’s why I will be sharing my experience directly from the mouths of your employees. You need new, respectable management and you need someone on your advice team who’s younger and understands how the real, modern day works because knocking on people’s doors at 8pm because no one doesn’t sign up for Schwans is not how you get people to sign up. Personal advice to anyone who may read this review and consider a job at Schwans: please make sure you have no family or other commitments as this job is 6 days a week for 14 hours with a 30 minute break. Know that absolutely anything that happens no matter what and I mean this: no matter what it is YOUR fault. You will blamed for anything and everything. Know that there is no winning in this company. If you bring in a thousand in sales you’ll be questions why you didn’t bring in twelve hundred in sales. If you bring in thirteen hundred in sales you’ll be ask why it wasn’t two thousand. There is no winning no matter what you do. Know that management does play favorites and will not hesitate to write you up or terminate you for another persons mistake. Know that if you have a daughter or wife it is highly advised against bringing them to the depot or introducing them to your co workers because they are disgusting. I can’t stress that part enough. If you’re in an absolute pinch and you NEED a job then by all means but I beg anyone reading this review to please consider anything else but this job. I wasted years of my life on these people and they spit on you on your way out. Glad I’m done with this company There is no chance to move up, there are no raises and commission is bare minimum. The benefits are ok but nothing incredible. There is no work life balance so please don’t get that into your head. You won’t have time for anyone or anything. Also know that when servicing your customers is important that you do not service the customer how they wish to be serviced but service the customer how management believes they should be serviced. To do otherwise is a lecture and potential write up.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Schwan's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Salary wasn’t bad. Easy work most of time.

    Cons

    No chance for advancement. 6 holidays a year all have to be made up on Saturday. Expect you to work of clock to complete work as you are only authorized so many hours. 10 days a year vacation never increase even if you work there 30 years.
