    Pros

    Do what you have to do and leave and no one over your back watching. Good job if you are trust worthy and a good worker.

    Takes 6months before benefits kick in. Also when you start out if you are a driver you will get stuck with a bad route that no one wants.

    Advice to Management

    Make the job a little more fair when someone just starts out.

    I have been working at AVI Foodsystems Inc. full-time (Less than a year)

    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 Management

    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.

    I worked at AVI Foodsystems Inc. part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers were fun. There were some really odd folks though as well. My bosses were really good. They intentionally taught/mentors me. Free meals Typically, schedules were pretty Flexible Environmental Stewardship

    Cons

    Poor Pay ($8.00 for an assistant. $14.00 for a main cook)

    Advice to Management

    I was a young cook with lots of potential and the chefs took me under their wing. Some other folks without my social privileges (college degree, white) did not seem to be treated with as much respect.

    Pros

    Self directed, same schedule and route, early start, day finished when work for day done. Benefits and vacation package is very good.

    Cons

    Everyone at AVI works hard for their money. No easy jobs here. Slackers are exposed very quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Would not hurt to modernize the company a litle bit. Too much business is transacted with pen and paper that could be done on-line like other companies do here in the 21st century.
