    Interview Details

    First there was a phone interview with human resources. Then I had one face-to-face interview with my soon to be boss. It was a situational interview. I was very lucky and they called me on the way home from the interview to offer me the job. I accepted the job the next day and was working in the office three weeks later.

    District Sales Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Schwan's in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was first contacted by a Sr. Recruiter on the phone. That conversation lasted about 45 minutes, then was followed up by another phone interview. Following that, I went through a face-to-face interview with an HR manager at a Regional office, then a face-to-face interview with the Regional VP of the area. All interviews were a great experience. I was happy to see the type of qualities they were looking for like "Leadership qualities" instead of "Management capabilities".

    That being said, I didn't get the job... but the experience was extremely pleasant. It inspired me to become a Schwan's customer.

    Interview Questions
    • I was not surprised by any questions really... It felt more like a conversation between professionals than an interview in every case. One question was "can you describe some of your leadership philosophies?"   View Answer

    It was joke. No one knows what to ask. They had some paperwork and asked random template questions. Like what experience do you have. The rest was bragging about their company and their food and all was a big lie.

    Route Sales Representative, Schwans Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Glendale, AZ (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glendale, AZ (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Schwan's in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is a little drawn out compared to others. You have a total of four different interviews before they will get to an offer letter. The only thing that they stress to you in the process is that this position requires a lot of hours (12-13) per day. You have no say in where you would eventually be (geographically) if you are given a route. They did not inform me that they have NO PAID HOLIDAYS until after I had already participated in a 12 hour ride along and was on my second interview. They make it appear that the pay will be good until you actually start to hear from the route person that you ride with gives you the real story.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    Not worth it when you factor in the amount of hours versus the pay-it is almost like only making minimum wage with no overtime pay.
