    I worked at AVI Foodsystems Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can get off of work here at 1pm so your free most afternoons. Great job security. Easy hiring process. You can eat 5 dollars worth of food and chips there everyday. They provide the uniforms.

    Cons

    You have to be there at 5 am. My union rep tried to fight me and yelled at me in front of other employees. The management pretended it didn't happen. The vans and trucks do not have AC in them. When I asked about them they told me that's how all the other trucks and vans were too. The pay is 900 dollars every 2 weeks. Plus they have the hardest inventory process I've ever seen. They will never appreciate what you do for them and will only focus on the bad.

    Advice to Management

    You need to communicate and train your employees. Appreciate your workers and they will take care of the customers. People over profit.

    Outdated can not negotiate for a win win bends to client request, will constantly lose for a retention of account security. They started as a vending company and progressed to food service with out progression of trends in the industry.

    Pros

    No weekends. That's okay I guess.

    Cons

    Poor hours. Poor pay. Poor management. Poor training. Poor work ethic. Poor service. Management still doesn't know how to do his job.

    Advice to Management

    This man should talk less and work more. He needs to manage. He ran the store into the ground.

    Pros

    Can't think of any THAT EXIST working for this company. And I seriously doubt it will ever change without a complete overhaul of Corporate Management to begin with and work their way down.

    Cons

    Middle management, on site management, lack of training from the beginning of hire date, awful hours and too many that weren't specified during interview, THE WORST PAY RATE for the amount of work that has to be done. Never enough staff hired and overtime basically not allowed.

    Advice to Management

    Hire new management or have the current ones learn how to run a business and treat the people working for them better.

    I worked at AVI Foodsystems Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Experience is basically all I can say here. So much turnover within finance it's ridiculous all because the CFO and the President are control freaks and over analyze everything

    Cons

    Where to start, hours are terrible. Zero resources to be able to do your job. Lowest pay I have ever seen for people in finance. No bonus. Supervisors berate their direct reports.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to treat your employees better. I was asked on the way out as I put my notice in where I was going by three different people. I told them it shouldn't matter WHERE but WHY.
