    I worked at Avnet full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    HQ and management teams fostered a positive message and unified company vision. Very good communication from the upper management. Salary and bennies were good but got worse with Obamacare,etc. Pension plan but 401k lacking.

    Cons

    Healthcare rates were high. Every year there was a new strategy. Struggled to run the division at a profit.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to bring in outside talent instead of promoting less qualified internal people from the good old boys club.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Avnet (Phoenix, AZ) in February 2017.

    Interview

    One week after I applied online, I received an email to schedule phone interview. Phone interview about half a hour. HR is really nice. Phone interview followed by a one to one onsite interview. Hiring manager is nice too.
