Suggestions for improvement

  • I think that Schwans once had a culture that was family oriented and has now totally dissipated. It's to bad. It would be nice to have the company appreciate thier employees more. They have deviated from the family atmosphere.

What I like about the company

Schwans gives you flexibility to work at your pace and hours.

What I dislike about the company

What I don't like is you are stagnant here and your skill are limitly used.
