    Pros

    Free food and drinks. The head of management was a good boss. Steady daylight work. no layoffs and overtime available.

    Cons

    When you called off or was on vacation they had 2 guys called floaters that covered your route. They robbed money from your machines. They had access to all your machines with the keys. Come inventory sure enough you were short if you called of that month. They also had a machine mechanic that was a thief too. Bunch of no good thieves. But the drivers were blamed for it.The guy that ran my building was a good guy and did his job. My direct supervisor didn't deserve to be a boss. He didn't know what he was doing. They never told you good job. They was always trying to make you kill yourself for no money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some private investigators and keep an eye on the guys that float and cover routes and the mechanics because some of them are robbing your company blind.

    Pros

    Co-Workers, Salary adequate for Manager's positions

    Cons

    Technology (or lack of), Work-Life Balance, Company treatment of employees, Demands placed on part time help,
    pay of non management employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to what your people in the accounts have to say, you may learn more than you care to know. Update book keeping from pen and paper to computers, will save millions in lost inventory/cash. This company used to obsess over postings on Job Vent, so I am sure it continues to this site. I know as a fact they placed reviews just to get their ratings up.

    Pros

    The hours!! The hours are all Monday thru Friday and short shifts! You work in contracted cafeterias for schools, colleges, hospitals, business, and other events. Food is prepared with fresh ingredients by qualified and skilled people.

    There is also the vending machine side of the company. They have thousands of machines. Al stocked daily with fresh beverages, and snacks. The food (sandwiches, salads and more) in the machines are prepared fresh in local facilities and stocked by AVI people and rotated out frequently!

    Cons

    The pay could be a bit higher. The management is a little disorganized. Finding info out about the company is tough. Gotta ask and pursue it vigorously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get organized! Communicate employee benefits and company info directly and immediately to employees.
