Always Looking For A New JOB

Sales Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Schwan's

ProsThe 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.

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementI 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
