Most unappreciative , unorganized place
production worker/ machine operator (Current Employee), Pottstown, PASeptember 17, 2014
Pros: small group of employees
Cons: unorganized . lies to workers.... broken promises, no room for advancements
This place wants you to think all is well, but in reality we are losing employees left & right. They lie to the employees routinely . Raises are rare.... If any they are less than .20 cents. They make – more... promisses & never keep them. Benifits suck ! They have no feelings for the worker. If you have children & need to be flexable, or a certain shift they don't want to hear it! ! ! They claim you are a certain shift but than move you to the different shift often without informing you . We can't plan appointments ahead because we never know what shift we are working until the Friday before it starts. The people cannot be trusted........ management repeats confidential stuff when you are not there. The hardest part of the job is getting along with the miserable, back stabbing workers which are usually like this due to the lack of help, and because the equipment work terrible & the worker is supossed to use it that way! They expect you to have quality work , but the maintence on the equipment is lacking big time. This is the most insensitive/ lying to the worker place I've ever worked ! ! – less

My bad choices
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee), WashingtonSeptember 3, 2014
Pros: decent staff interactions
Cons: long hours, no advancement, impossible goals, poor corporate management
Weekly mandetory meetings that are unpaid so you can hear about all the benefits you are loosing. False promises from management and corporate. You are forced to buy a pair of boots through their supplier – more... under the promise of being reimbursed after 6 months. After the 6 months, the person in charge of reimbursement will try to deny it under the statement "when employees are asking for reimbursement, it usually means they are planning to quit. We prefer you buy a second pair and use the discount on those." (A quote from the email response I received) You constantly have to watch your paycheck to make sure the money is there. If you ask management about your check being wrong, all you get is a shrug. Base plus commission position but, not if you don't meet impossible goals. Be prepared to answer your phone 24 hours a day 7 days a week ( I received calls from the corporate office at 5:30 AM on my day off.) get ready to lie on federal DOT forms about your hours and miles. You literally get punished for taking an earned vacation. Trucks are constantly breaking down which causes you to work extra days for free. The 40% off products only applies if you order online, which is impossible since you are expected to work 14+ hours a day. – less

Does Not Support Service Memebers
Sales (Former Employee), Bowling GreenAugust 13, 2014
went in for a interview was the perfect match for the job but when i mentioned being in the Reserves, my interviewer, so called office manager said that it was a problem because i couldn't give him everything even though i would only be gone one weekend a month. So forget this company, don't waste your time if you are in the military

Good O Boy company
ex employee (Former Employee), Richardson TXJuly 31, 2014
Pros: its a job
Cons: salary, if u work more then 8 hr, your work for free, no growth
There is no growth unless your white, no diversity in management. If your hired as a driver, u stay a driver. Benefits r better then none at all. Management needs major attention from main head in Minnesota, – more... The Richardson area needs direction badly. Adding stores to route that never been run on route across town. Alot of windshield time, cold storage doesn't load truck right with damage products, trucks break down weekly, u have to take your truck to get services, not worth the pay. Company has no back bone – less

This is the absolute worse place you can imagine.
Maintenance Tec (Current Employee), Florence, KyJuly 31, 2014
Cons: lies from managers, incompetent managers, lack of respect, family life means nothing to them.
Poor management is the key here. Lack of back bone seem to be the way to succeed in this company. If your a yes man you could become VP in a year.

Fun, friendly and enjoyable environment
Assembler (Former Employee), Marshall, MNJune 26, 2014
Working at Schwan was one of the most fun and enjoyable experience I have ever worked and don't mind working there for a long term. I have learnt to keep up good, strong fast pace work force around the – more... area. Working there I've met all different types of co-workers. There may be some friendly ones or ones that have issues with you. However, even if I felt like things were not fair to me from other co-worker, I will just keep my temper down and keep up the good work. I will say, the hardest part working there was when I first started and everything was just too fast for me to keep up, but within a week or 2 I eventually catch up pretty good. Making friends there and getting to know everyone is the most important thing to me to make things more enjoyable. – less
