Executive Assistant to V.P. Human Resources (Former Employee), Memphis, TNMarch 18, 2015
I worked here almost 20 years and enjoyed working there and miss working there. It was a wonderful place to work, with great benefits, many advancement opportunities and the managers and co-workers were terrific.The company headquarters relocated to Washington from Memphis, TN. It was sad to see them go.

Sous Chef (Current Employee), Orlando, FLMarch 10, 2015
Pros: free lunches, staff appreciation parties, birthday cakes for staffs.
Cons: short breaks, poor benefits and low wages.
Good place to work but fail to recognize talents! Its a very fast paste job, the hardest part of the job is to deal with people of so many different cultures, the management is a little about average but they are good people just not open to fresh minds and new ideas, co-workers are very knowledgeably and old fashion people and they take the time to teach us the younger managers!

Kitchen Porter (Former Employee), Romulus, MIMarch 4, 2015
Pros: free lunch
Cons: low pay
Not much I can say. The job does not pay much but the work is not too hard. You clean the building and help where others need help. Most of the staff is friendly. The place can be gross at times since it is cleaning but a jobs a job.

Gate Gourmet not the best job
Food Prep (Former Employee), Chicago, ILFebruary 24, 2015
no room for advancement. Not the best work conditions either. The facility was kind of chaotic. A typical day of work was in a cooler whichh was 20 degrees packing food on a plate, supervisors complained if u came out after 4 hours trying to get some heat.

Exec. Assistant to the Chief Commercial Officer (Former Employee), Reston, VAFebruary 23, 2015
Pros: telework, flexible hours
Cons: a lot of company restructuring happening, lack of effective communications from management, benefits
During my tenure at Gate Gourmet I learned a lot about the commercial catering business as well as the service industry as it applies to airlines.
I increased my practical knowledge of excel and other Microsoft applications.

I enjoyed the ability to work from home. I enjoyed working with my bosses (all three of them) and my other co-workers. The company focuses on 4 values and tries to reinforce them through awards and incentives.

Purchasing Manager (Current Employee), Chicago, ILFebruary 22, 2015
Pros: free lunches.
Cons: if you work in production, you can work long hours and no control of days off.
An n exciting place to work if in managerial role, and you are open to learning all there is to learn about all production areas. Quality of work life at times is not positive, and the balance between work and life is definitely not equally balanced.

Driver (Former Employee), Chicago, ILFebruary 8, 2015
Pros: exciting job catering airlines meeting new people.
Cons: very low pay and benefit cost for families are extremely expensive.
Very low salary for the risk involved. Drivers are union with Teamsters but are no where near what drivers are being compensated that are represented by Teamsters, from my understanding they have been on a 6 year salary freeze, which should be embarrassing for what they get paid. Feel that Organization needs a lot of work, mandatory daily overtime for drivers has to be addressed.
