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

    Pros

    Management was always there when I needed assistance with a job issue.

    Cons

    The only downside I can think of is that they only offer part-time to vending attendants.

    I have been working at AVI Foodsystems Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    In my experience the hours are very flexible. I can usually adjust my schedule for any appointments I might have, and the work itself really isn't that bad. You work alone without any real supervision (except for an occasional drop in by your supervisor), and as long as you do a good job you have a job for life! I'm 56 years old and I would recommend this kind of work to anyone.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's like pulling teeth trying to get a question answered because your immediate supervisor doesn't know the answer, and they are so busy most of the time it may take a while to get the answer from them.

    Advice to Management

    Consider opening atleast 1 regional office. To have only 1 corporate office to cover the entire US is insane! Everything, including payroll issues (and you're messing with our money here) takes FOREVER to reconcile! Spend some of the mountain of money you are making and MAKE YOUR OPERATION MORE STREAMLINE. The work itself is not hard or difficult. The reason you lose so many employees is, you either hire any warm body to fill an opening, or you don't put in the time and /or effort to keep the good ones you might have. WAKE UP!

    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.
