I loved this job because you were able to get out and meet new people and make new contacts as part of the job. Work Started at 7:30 AM and when you sales were met you were though with the day unless you wanted to stay and meet new customers

Great company to work for. I had the opportunity to work in both finance and sales management. It was a great experience for an accounting and finance person to get to fully understand the driver of the business - sales.
customer service rep/ (Current Employee) – Greenville, DSC – January 3, 2016
A typical day begins at 4:30 am meeting the retail food delivery to be merchandised on the shelf. It's all about service and a partnership with the retailer. I work with great co-workers who work as a team to separate ourselves from the competition. The days can sometimes get long but at the end of the day there is satisfaction that we have given it our best.

I love the actual job! It is difficult work hours. Perks are awesome and pay is decent it is the 12 hour days for salary pay that make it hard. The work environment is positive and that is a great benefit.
route sales representative (Former Employee) – O'Fallon, MO – December 23, 2015
12- 14 hour days. learned a lot about people and their habits. felt management was going in the wrong direction. I felt my co-workers were some of my best friends. the hardest part of the job was to figure which restaurant to eat at each day. the part I enjoyed the most was gaining respect and friendships from customers and co-workers
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Glendale, AZ – December 15, 2015
Company focus on internet sales at the expense of long standing customer base may be detrimental in the short run. Long work hours and forced delivery times on customers regardless of the customer needs discourages both workers and buyers. Change from how customers used to be treated as family will turn the Schwans Home Service business into just another struggling food delivery service.
Job Autonomy on the road
Routes envisioned pre-employment never realized after hire
Department Training Specialist (Current Employee) – Pueblo, CO – December 15, 2015
New Changes to the Company in 2015 have created a 9hr work day with better benefits than the traditional company model. The management has a top priority safety culture and the vehicles are inspected daily by both you as a driver and by the night crew that restocks your inventory to ensure the fleet is in great working condition.
Your own schedule, 30-60min lunches, great community
