    Current Employee - School Environmental in Mercer, PA

    I have been working at AVI Foodsystems Inc. full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the co-workers are great to work with, helping students, free food (not a solid Pro)

    Cons

    Poor management, non-responsive HR representatives, low pay with NO room for advancement, Company "talks a good talk", mostly lies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a good, hard look at those who are in direct supervision and management of your front-line employees. Some supervisors are barely literate, often times outright lie to their charges, and HR does nothing to help other than continually turn the problems around to make it "your fault". If this company is run on "family values" as your website boasts, then learn what true family values are. It will shine some light on how employees are treated and why so many are unsatisfied, angry workers who take little pride in what they do.

    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

    Former Employee - Route Driver in Pittsburgh, PA

    I worked at AVI Foodsystems Inc. full-time (more than 5 years)

    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.

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

    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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    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.

    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.

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

    Pros

    I have been here a little less than a month. and quite honestly I do not see any Pros for working here.

    Cons

    I am asked to sell outdated food, All of the shifts set their own prices on food to appease the union factory workers. So that causes some problems when the workers come in on overtime. When I complained I was told to just go with it. Cooking contests between second and third shifts all the time which creates a hostile environment, when you are told that your shifts cooking is bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit raising the prices and skimping on everything.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
