    I have been working at AVI Foodsystems Inc.

    Pros

    Satisfying teamwork, great products and service.

    Cons

    High turnover in lower level positions and no succession plans for middle and upper management has stagnated profit growth. Our approach and outlook toward the future has gone from long term to the very short term. Retention of unprofitable business for cash flow is worrisome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Uphold and support our Core Values.

    Current Employee - Vending Attendant in Napoleon, OH

    I have been working at AVI Foodsystems Inc. part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Paid well (because I worked in a factory that had a union which also took a lot of money because of union dues and initiation fees) , flexible hours (because of manager not company)

    Cons

    Factory workers were picky and displeased with the function of the machines and they expected me to be able to fix it but I was not trained for that. Most of my cons are for the factory I worked at, not AVI.

    I worked at AVI Foodsystems Inc. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay was decent, benefits good, other co-workers was pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Upper management was over worked by owner of company. Owner didnt seem to care that people working for them had lives, family etc...could not believe some things I heard from branch managers and regional mangers on how they were treated at times by owner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Owner need to appreciate the people that work for them and be more respectful. People don't work for you 24/7 365 days a year...

    Friendly staff, willing to let you learn more than your current position. Good daily routine, everyone leaves together so noone feels left out.

    Review policy with staff more than just during inital interview. Better raises to keep up with cost of living,.
