    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at AVI Foodsystems Inc. part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible schedule that is willing to work around young kids at home, good pay for the work required, management allows employees to run accounts as necessary without micromanaging.

    Cons

    Frequent problems at the warehouse that cause orders to be missing items, drivers can be inconsiderate of the safety of CSA's when off-loading orders into storage rooms.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that all employees from warehouse to CSA's are on the same page so that enough product is available to service all accounts. Ensure that drivers are aware of safe stacking heights and enforce this standard for the safety of all employees.

      I have been working at AVI Foodsystems Inc. full-time

      Pros

      It's an extremely "corporate" environment that emphasizes less on employees and more on rigid rules to further the company. It's a perfectly okay job, but the management is condescending and they don't offer terrific pay.

      Cons

      Pay structure, management isn't approachable

      Negative Outlook
      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at AVI Foodsystems Inc. full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Good benefits-especially medical. The waiting time for the 401K can be more than 1 year

      Cons

      Everything else. Toxic environment, no training/support, outdated manual systems. They are on their 3 FSD at the account I was at in 1 year. Their reputation is so bad in the Toledo area they are using staffing firms that don't mention AVI.

      Advice to Management

      Your "family values" are a joke. I have never been treated so poorly in my life and I have be doing this for 40+ years. Leadership has no idea what is happening in the units. You never see anybody over the DM level.

    • "Food and Nutrition Supervisor"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

        I worked at AVI Foodsystems Inc.

        Pros

        Some of the people you meet are very nice.

        Cons

        No one helps you. Expected to work long hours with no breaks at all. Bad hours, I’m never one to complain about hours but when you have your employees work 10 hours a day in the middle of the day it’s really hard. 50-60 hour work weeks. VERY low pay.

        Advice to Management

        Help your staff. Be at work when your employees are at work so you have a clue what going on.

          Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

          I worked at AVI Foodsystems Inc. full-time

          Pros

          Family owned, many positions available.

          Cons

          No loyalty from management. Small pay raises.

          I worked at AVI Foodsystems Inc. full-time

          Pros

          Pay is good if you are looking for a paycheck.

          Cons

          AVI doesn't know much about healthcare or retail. They are 20 years behind the current trends. Their support teams are weak mostly do to the companies lack of program and understanding of good food and service. Training and continual education is non-existent. They do not pay for any employee's meals. If you want to buy an employee a meal for a good job, you have to pay for it yourself. They push family values and...

          Advice to Management

          Find leaders that care what they are doing and are committed for the success of the organization. Offer education for your people, and leaders, show value to them. Integrity is part of your mission statement, live your statement standards. Your food service operations are made of people. Not like the vending machines that you started with. Treat people like they mean something. Don't push the like they are machines....
