    Pros

    Very flexible work. Great experience with the company and lots of hands on accomplishments. Traveling to help with high end upscale events really gets you exposure.

    Long work days and demanding clientele. Trying to accommodate both clients and company can be a challenging situation. Being able to decide on what is the professional choice can be skewed by clients wishes and needs.

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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.
