  1. Summer work for college student

    Former Employee - Cashier in Rochester, NY
    Former Employee - Cashier in Rochester, NY

    I worked at American Food & Vending (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked here as a college student home for the summer. I had really great, consistent hours and enjoyed the fast paced atmosphere.

    Cons

    Many coworkers had issues with one another and working together in the close confines of a kitchen really didn't help.

    Pros

    - Flexible work schedule with understanding boss

    - Freedom to a certain extent with designs

    Cons

    -Management is very old fashioned
    -Little room for growth

    Advice to Management

    Management should become more in-tune with the trends of today. They have a very old school mentality and it is difficult to implement positive change

    Pros

    Set your own schedule, within reason.
    Minimal supervision.
    Pay based on how much you're willing to take on.

    Cons

    Route logistics don't make sense-unwanted stops.
    Good routes make more money than management, creating a "stuck" feeling.
    Company wastes too much money on inferior routes/drivers.
    Benefits are a joke.

    Pros

    Had a great work-life balance. Opportunity to contribute to the growth of the organization. Just a phone call away from senior leadership.

    Cons

    Cookie cutter operations. Benefits were really expensive. Constant tug of war between the dining division and vending division. Should be working as a team.

    Advice to Management

    Work to reduce costs of benefits and promote more ownership from the local level.

    Pros

    The Monday to Friday hours.

    Cons

    They had a freeze on all raises when i was there and require you work there a certain length of time before you can be promoted, which in my case screwed me out of a lot of money for a job i was doing anyway.
