Sales and Marketing Representative (Former Employee) – Bloomington, MN – June 17, 2016
Typical workday was selling electronic sub-components via telephone to electronics companies. I learned innovative sales techniques, and electronic engineering applications, in my job. Mgmt was inclusive and supportive for all employees success and goals. Co-workers were driven and collaborative in meeting company sales goals. Hardest part of job was industry competition in meeting sales goals. Most enjoyable part of job was shared success and support of all staff. Mgmt, and co-workers.
Professional workforce. Great benefits and Quality of Worklife
Production Planner (Current Employee) – Chandler, AZ – November 9, 2015
Handles stress and pressure well in the high paced production environment. Worked with 2 ERPs which include SAP & a custom program called Genesis. Works well alone or in teams, but very much a team player. Pushes co-workers to succeed.
Computer technician (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – September 10, 2015

And the next i was a computer assembler and would be part of assembly line and build servers.
Repair Technician (Current Employee) – Chandler – May 20, 2015
Avnet is a good company for entry level job. It gives some good basic training that is useful but it needs to be complement from your own personal time. It has a good internal communication. Management seems to listen advices but slow to implement in the process due to bureaucracy. Employees I met personally, are friendly and have good deed to work hard to help you if need. However the more experience you have, the more difficult is to find opportunity in the internal process to advance in your professional career.
Solutions Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Chandler, AZ – October 2, 2016
Several fruitless attempts were made to make sure the company was a productive place to conduct business. Botched implementations of systems and processes, policies and instructions, made employment difficult to understand the direction where Avnet was headed.
Technology Consultant (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – October 4, 2016
Able to work with a great team of people. Everyone knew their jobs and did them well. Everyone at Avnet made work feel like being part of a family. Best part of any given week or day was working along side coworkers who had the same common goals of doing great work and succeeding together.
Propley the closest thing to working in a China's factory.
Electronic Technician II (Former Employee) – Groveport, OH – July 18, 2016
No job security for technician. If you wanted to found a company ran by poor management Avnet is that company. In Columbus, Ohio we had managers who were only concerned about quantity not quality. Therefore we ended up losing business and technician lost their jobs due to a large number of scrapping.
Ability to work with multiple Companies and their environments while working with a top notch team
IAM Architect (Former Employee) – Remote and onsite at multiple customer sites – April 20, 2016
Avnet provided me with the ability to learn from working at multiple large companies on their IAM systems giving me a good look at how different companies manage their IAM needs. I had opportunity to train in outside areas as well, such as IBM QRadar SIEM and the Cisco Firejumper for mobility program.
Avnet has a group of top notch people who know their stuff and are willing and able to assist at a moments notice. I only wish I had an opportunity to work with them more on a face to face level.
Great established company but too big for their own good
Change Management Analyst (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – March 29, 2016
zAvnet is a great company that is well established in the B2B logistics field but this is good and bad. You will be secure in your job only because this company is so slow to move on anything. You do get to work with other departments and everyone is readily available and willing to help which is great. Many employees are actually contract workers. There are no perks like most modern day tech companies but overall its a secure job.
Intel Auditor (Former Employee) – Duluth, GA – August 10, 2016
Typical day included coming in and processing orders Learned immensely about IT in corporate America The MGMT wasn't the best. Nepotism runs too wild Hardest part was dealing with nepotism. Most enjoyable part were the co-workers
Supply Chain Management (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – April 23, 2016
This is a legacy company operating in the technology space, yet seems to be behind the times in its own culture and initiatives. For such a big company it is tough to advance with the amount of politics. The compensation is ridiculously low in comparison to many other companies I've compared Avnet with. Other benefits are decent such as pension plan but no 401K matching option is anything but enjoyable.
Customer Service Specialist (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – June 22, 2016
I enjoy working for Avnet they really care about their employees. I have learned a lot about teamwork and integrity. This job is really flexible and have great management that work with you if problems arise.
Mail Room Clerk (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – July 28, 2015
I enjoyed the time I worked at Avnet. My manager was very helpful and friendly, and my co-workers were great to work with. My co-workers were very patient during the training process, which for me ended on my last day. I never stopped learning.
great manager, good hours, reasonable pay, good benefits
Product Manager/Customer Support Manager (Former Employee) – Richardson, TX – February 26, 2013
Avnet Electronics is committed to their employees always treated them with respect and dignity. As an account management I was an liaison between outside sales and the customer. In my duties I was resposible for quoting and biding on customers drawings to assure competitive pricing and availability, to increase sales and gross profit dollars for the company. Management was always welling to help to overcome obstacles that arraised when trying to perform your job duties as well as Team members. Over all Avnet was a very enjoyable company to work for.
great benitfits, professional company, culture/values very dervesified
AP Fin Ops Associate (Current Employee) – Richardson, TX – January 6, 2016
A good Place to start if you have never worked in AP and need to learn skills. Management like to play mind games with you. Really no place for advancement unless management likes you. Most enjoyable part of my job are the people I have met and the friends I have made.
