I have been working at American Food & Vending

Pros

Uniforms provided, steady work, work alone most of the time.

Cons

You work 50 to 60 hour weeks. The pay is totally luck of the draw - you could have 15 stops that don't bring in much money and make about 27k, or get 3 stops that make a lot of money and make about 40k. Seniority has no bearing. I've been here some years now (don't want to give identifying information) and still make the starting pay, in fact I was told no to a raise multiple times. In their job listings they so you get to enjoy evenings at home, but fail to say that since you start at 3AM, your evenings at home are spent sleeping. As soon as the economy picks up and more jobs become available I'm running far, far away.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Giving employees raises might motivate them to do better work.

    Pros

    Good pay
    Can eat anything from your truck
    Work by yourself

    Cons

    Warehouse always running out of proiducts or giving you out of date products. When this happens the route drivers get in trouble. Managers never let you take a day off until your vaction. They tell you they pay for two weeks of vaction time after 2 years, but after your vaction you find out that you only get one. The hours are from 3 am til 3 pm monday thur friday and sat or sun from 8 am til 2pm. That's rigth you work 60 to 70 hours a weeks but only get paid for 40 hors. The pay is ok but they should pay their drivers more money. The drivers make about 40,000 a year and do all the work and the managers make about 100,000 a year and do nothing. Oh and don,t think that you,ll start as a driver and get promoted to manager because they hire managers from outside the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys should praise your drivers more because they are want keeps this company alive. Pay your drivers more money and let them be independent.

    This is a typical corporate run vending operation that treats its employees like robots.

    I worked at American Food & Vending

    Pros

    It's a job and a check, albeit a small one.

    Cons

    60-80 hour work weeks are commonplace. Salary compensation for such long hours and amount of labor involved is inadequate to say the least. Pay raises are very rarely given. Mid management is rude, condescending and overbearing. Tensions run high in work atmosphere. Rate of employee turnover in high. You will be expected to have your entire life revolve around this company if you go to work for them. One minor mistake and they will jump down your throat, write you up and talk to you as if you were in elementary school. Do not go to work for these people unless you have to and absolutely cannot find employment anywhere else. If you expect to be promoted or given much praise for your work efforts you will not be satisfied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some PR skills. Assuming that everyone is an incompetent idiot other than yourself qualifies as bad management.
