    Pros

    Good starting salary and they are very family oriented so there is no doubt that they care. Their mission &vision statement is one that aligns their core values to what all employers want to see from their employees. Extremely rewarding experiences through empowerment of their employees and managerial staff.

    Cons

    The pay for hourly personnel is a bit low but they're treated really well with paid holidays off, and other company incentives. General Managers are treated well also but there are few if any company perks that are offered to them to help in the lower salary pay scales they're on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know what you want and do research on the account client that you would be working for. It's a great stepping stone that loves to promote from within but you need to be on the right side of the line for any considerations.

    Pros

    Good learning for Customer Service Accounts. Good fresh food.

    Cons

    Company refuses to modernize and still is a pencil and paper organization. I haven't done things in the Vending business for the last 20 years and trucks and equipment antiquated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To much nepotism. Quit hiring losers from other companies and have a training program for new managers and support the local branch to staff the vacant positions, turnover is horrendous.

    It is a great learning experience to advance knowledge in the culinary industry

    I worked at AVI Foodsystems Inc. part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Had weekends off and worked all mornings.Ihad worked long enough to get a three week vacation

    Cons

    Never enough help and always out of everything There were never any perks,they kept taking things away they cut hours to 29 hours so they didn't have to pay any benefits but didn't cut the work load.so working so fast was a set up for accidents this company is also a good old boys club it describes against women in wages and hours to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair to all employees and don't let managers play favorites .Care more about better food than about those monthly specials which are a waste of money. Get more input from hourly workers.GIVE THE hourly people some perks you have none.
