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

    Pros

    Strong core values, cost structure well managed, and iconic brands supports a culture of innovation. Upper leadership, lead by CEO, empowers employees to solve complex organizational challenges

    Cons

    Tremendous change appears to be difficult for more tenured team members, but substantial change leadership work underway to ensure we continue to innovate as a company

    Advice to Management

    Continue investments to improve the Route Sales Representative role (hours and pay)

    I worked at Schwan's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Our sales team and warehouse employees.

    Cons

    Everything else. Work life balance is horrendous. Employees are told they would recieve holiday pay but have to work an extra Saturday to make up for the holiday. ??????? Zone managers are worthless in Texas.

    Advice to Management

    Bail faster. Home service is going down.

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

    Pros

    The Customers are great along with the products. It is an established brand in the market but they have turned to many customers away with delivery fees and turnover

    Cons

    The management does nothing but lie about everything. They "bait and switch" you to get you to take the jobs of others who were smart enough to quit.

    The hours are also terrible along with dealing with the outdoor elements.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up. This isn't the Schwan's that you worked at before when working 12 hours a day was expected. We also don't make half the money you once did either.
