I worked for schwans for 7 months. When I started my pay was fixed at 123.00 per day, until I sold 5,000 per week for 5 weeks.
Then my pay would go to 147.00 per plus 1% commission. In Feb. of this year they changed the pay system to better steal money from the employee's and give more to the family that owns the company. Under the new system you get 50.00 to show up for work.
Plus 50.00 for the day if you meet the requirements for the day. IE service all customers on that route day, be at each customer during their time window, and be at each customer when you log an action for that customer. If you miss any one of these metrics you loose the 50.00 for that day. Then you get a commission of between 1% and 9% depending on your sales for that day.
But you must sell at least 1,000.00 in a day to make 2.5%. So I had a route that only did 600.00 to 700.00 a day. I went from making 123.00 a day to making only 106.00 or 107.00 per day. If any driver missed his metrics for the day the 50.00 that was lost that day goes back to the family.
You do the math. With 17000 drivers running a route each day, if 10% or 1,700 drives miss their metrics.
That is 1,700 X 50.00 or 85,000 for that day that the family gets to keep and they cheat their employee's out of this money.
Must me nice to be able to cheat you employee's and get rich each day.
Monetary Loss: $30.
