    I worked at AVI Foodsystems Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free food and drinks with most weekends off. Good Co workers. Major holidays off with pay. 401k is available to employees

    Cons

    Awful hours, large work load for small pay. Management stinks, won't listen to employees suggestions. Most of the employees call it hell on earth afraid to say anything for fear of being fired. If u complain u have to worry about being fired. Not sufficiently trained for the position.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the crappy management and hire new ones.

    Do not make promises you do not intend on keeping whether it's with the customers or employees. It's very important for everyone to have a plan.

    Pros

    Free food, tons of overtime because almost always short handed. 2% raise yearly so if you keep your head down and don't care about anyone but yourself then you'll do fine here

    Cons

    I moved up very quickly because my chef left and I was thrust into the role of sous chef without training or support. I held out for a new chef and when he came on board he was extremely disrespectful and degrading to all the current staff and has become friends with the director. Both lie to new employees and are just looking to have people put food on plates with no accountability for foods safety.
    Being shut down for 17 weeks out of the year really sucks too.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better directors and then check on your accounts more then just 2 times a year. Corners are cut and people are very lazy when management doesn't come around at all

    Pros

    More holidays off than most businesses (like christmas eve, day after thanksgiving, good friday). Good schedule if you work at HQ- Monday thru Friday. Nice christmas lunch/banquet during workday before the christmas holiday. Good people, good benefits/holidays, despite the lower pay.

    Cons

    The way the building is set up, there are many interior departments, with no windows at all. This made me crazy to never know what it even looked like outside, or not knowing it was raining until you could hear the rain (if you were on the second floor). Very drab grey cubicles and gray walls everywhere, and the same office music plays all of the time, over and over (imagine Michael McDonald). This is what made me crazy there. Ever see the movie Office Space? lol

    Also, not very much pay.

    Advice to Management

    Liven the place up a little. The HQ building makes some people stir crazy.
