Former Employee - Route Driver in Buffalo, NY

I worked at AVI Foodsystems Inc.

Pros

Starting pay was OK for the area. Esp. when other similar jobs are only paying $9.00 - $10.00 Per hour. Schedule is early morning 5:00 AM until about 1:00 or 2:00 PM, Mon- Fri. Worked with some nice people.

Cons

Communication within AVI was very poor. Management was always emphasizing how important it is for the Drivers to communicate with Management and vise versa. Neither side does a very good job. Management to Management was very poor. Warehouse Manager was never told about new accounts or issues until a driver mentioned it or new Machines started showing up for new installs. This branch has grown considerably in the past year and has out grown current warehouse. Drivers have a tough time getting product to fill orders by mid week due to lack of room for storage. Needs 2 Operations Manager's not 1. Current system is working and makes it difficult to equipment repaired for vehicles. Took me 5 months to get tires for my Company vehicle. Pay for Vending Attendants is very low usually around $8.00. Raises are very small.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

GET ORGANIZED!!!!!! You have 5 Manager's. All 5 will give you a different answer to the same question. Communicate better with employees and let them know what is going on with accounts and when new accounts are being added to their route. Need more than 1 FT office person. Office is dis-organized and no one seemed to know about interviews when a candidate would show up. Interviews are very unprofessional and should be conducted in a office not in the open where every one is walking around. Do a better of listening to your employees' including Vending Attendants.

    Pros

    -Worked in college environment
    -For the most part, co-workers were very friendly.
    -Easy Summers
    -Pays well for non-managers

    Cons

    While the summers were laid back, you more than made up for it during the school year (fall & spring semesters). Management salary was decent, but when you look at the amount of hours that you worked many of your employees made almost as much as you.

    During the school year salary employees will work 50+ hour weeks. Summer hours are "short days" working about 40.

    They preferred that you took vacation during the summer months, not during fall and winter.

    Much of your experience is based up your "dining services director."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall I think that AVI Foodsystems was a good company to work for. The hours and pay are similar to other food service jobs. If you are lucky to have a nice dining services director and you enjoy the food service industry you might really enjoy this company.
