    I have been working at Schwan's full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You manage your own route. Employee discounts on their food which is really good. Pay is fair.

    Cons

    Tough to move up in the company. A lot of disconnect between call center, customers and route sales reps.

    "I wouldn’t go back"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Route Salesman 

    I worked at Schwan's full-time

    Pros

    Got to be on your own.

    Cons

    For how long they have you out and what they pay, you’re not making that much and a lot of the customers are older and not a lot of young people like the service.
