    The AVI folks preach a philosophy on their web page that does not match reality.

    Pros

    Great web site talking about how great they are. they don't match up with what they profess to be.

    Cons

    Reality is that the purchasing group treats vendors with disrespect and they are not open to any new product.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your people are arrogant and you will fail if that attitude does not change

    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

    I really don't have anything nice to say, oh yay you get free drinks and a meal ohhhh so what!

    Cons

    Where do I begin? They treat you like a child, when they screw up it's your fault, I do no deal I was trained properly, I was made to feel stupid and like they couldn't wait to replace me. The whole company contradicts it's self. They tell you on thing then turn around and change the way things are done, and blame you when you don't know it was changed. When you do make a mistake and have to call the office again they make you feel like an idiot!!!! Can't wait to find a new job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more interactions with the CSAs the hiring manager needs to hear what is being done and needs to make herself available to the workers
