I have been working at Schwan's

Pros

The best part is the people that you meet on a regular basis, most of them are great. You are pretty much your own boss while your out on the truck all day, and the pay is not bad.

Cons

The biggest down fall is the hours that we work, no less than 12 but no more than 14 and yes that is 5 days a week, there is not much room for advancment either.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I wish they would go back to the dual routes that we had when i first started, which worked out to 8 to 10 hours a day, which was great for just about everybody.

    Pros

    When you first start out you get to go to a special training class 40HRS. You get to eat SCHWANS products and the food is great. You are guaranteed $750 a week for a set period of time and overtime for extra days worked. But when you go on full commission forget it, SEE BELOW>

    Cons

    Not one route at my depot was making any kind of Chairman club dollars! Thats the top maybe 1% of routes in ILLINOIS. The guys that have those routes are pretty much rural where there is no shopping for people. Because SCHWANS prices are kinda high people look for value deals. No onin my depot has ever been a success and they just keep revolving the door for new suckers. You will not be able to make the numbers they put out there. This place sucks so run away......

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get with the times,your company sucks for employees. You treat them like dogs 60 hrs a week on avg. Mgrs dont do $@%#, they just send you out and are there when u get back if your lucky. Your company sux. Undercover boss would have a field day with this s#$@#y company.

    Pros

    It's a paycheck
    Some of the customer are fun

    Cons

    No life outside Schwan's due to long hours, 12 to 14 hour days is a must
    Little or no time off
    Low pay
    When starting plan on knocking on door all day long to find new customers
    You may work as many as three weeks without a day off

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay is needed for CSM for the long hours worked
    Schwans needs to find a new way of finding customers
