Not a great place to work
EXECUTIVE CHEF (Current Employee) –  Warrendale, PAJuly 14, 2018
Management is terrible and getting worse every day. I have worked here for years and every year it gets worse. They limit what you can do and the company continues to lose business.

Step into the 2000's
Driver/Laborer (Former Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INJuly 14, 2018
The company trucks and equipment are so outdated. Primarily everything is from the 80's..no air in the trucks, no GPS, no electronic devices, everything is kept on a spreadsheet, no computer devices- it makes the job so much harder and upper management is so unreachable and could care less about these old trucks with no AC, no refrigeration to keep foods cold if needed. If this company wants to stay in the market- they need to update their technology
Pros
You get paid every two weeks
Cons
Company is completely outdated

Resident Director/District Manager (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYJuly 11, 2018
All P&L based - no people culture, doing hourly work 60% of my day. Some training. Sr. Management have little regard for people and phony. Could be a great company if they would balance their priorities.

Good place to work for those who can work on their own. Benefits for parttime positions; paid holidays, vacation, 401k. They tend to trust their employees; no micro managing.

Vendor (Former Employee) –  West Seneca, NYJune 29, 2018
It's not a great place to work for. As a vendor you only get 4 hours a day for 5 days. Management isn't bad. If you want to get somewhere with the company you are better off working at the warehouse of management.
Pros
Free food
Cons
hours are terrible

Don’t do it

Worst place to work, starts out ok, then they add more work and no pay increase. No communication at all. Don’t do it don’t do it don’t do it. Trucks are outdated and no ac, they fix and do service when something goes wrong to where you can’t drive truck.
Pros
Early start
Cons
Low pay, no communication

Warehouse Manager (Former Employee) –  Seymour, INJune 21, 2018
AVI is a company that genuinely cares about the well being of their employees. As long you show up for work and do your job, you got left alone. They do prefer to promote from within.
Pros
Free food
Cons
Warehouse has no A/C. Hot in the summer.

a day in a vending world
Costumer service associate (Current Employee) –  Warren, OHJune 15, 2018
working for AVI, you are on your own. You are trusted to do your job.

you will work with the public, give them change if needed, fill machines. try to get in what they would like.
filling machines are not hard, but some lifting.

I love my customers! most are very nice. they make your day.

hardest part of the job is trying to figure out what to get in two weeks from now!
Pros
free lunch for vending.
Cons
no insurance, or chance to buy into it.

Patrons are deplorable but there's salmon steak and eyecandy
Cashier/Cook (Former Employee) –  Brandon, FLJune 12, 2018
Prepped dishes and food all day long, ran dishwasher, took inventory, was cashier and handled money on an older system. The job it's self and the people I worked along side were wonderful. The menu we received for each week was always different so I got to learn how to cook something new each time.
ON THE OTHER HAND, the customers, who are regular employees of Progressive Insurance, were extremely condescending and highly overestimated my capabilities, just like their own patrons. It was very stressful and I felt harassed at a certain point. Despite the cafe being in the literal building they reside in, they tried (and did) get away with extra food and materials; napkins, forks, etc, but by the first-full. It was disappointing having to deal with those kind of people, but if you can get over awful and demeaning customers, the job is pretty comfy with a set schedule and free lunch.
Pros
free lunch and nice coworkers
Cons
customers rip out your soul because im not sure they have one

Great way to expand your culinary skills
Food Service Worker (Former Employee) –  New Kensington, PAJune 4, 2018
Overall it is an OK job. The head chef was confusing because he would want something done a certain way but then change his mind a thousand times. He was nice at first but then got mean towards the end.
Pros
Open when the college is. Free uniform, just not shoes.
Cons
Not very much room to advance. No health care.
