it's a job
Catering Staff (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAMarch 2, 2015
Pros: weekly paycheck
Cons: management
Not the best place to work. It,s just a job and has high turn over rates. Management is horrable. you may never get a break during the day. The employees are pretty cool people.

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.

Fast paced environment, lots of balls to juggle, can be overwhelming at times.
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.

You will work till you fall out. People act like they never had a job before. Everybody is out for themselves. You do NOT want to have a job at this company.

Billing and pricing audit for Major Airlines under the Finance dept. Management is good depending who you report to. The hardest part of the job is working with other internal teams. The most enjoyable part is I love what I do daily and most people are friendly

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.

Great environment to develop skills
Sourcing Analyst (Current Employee), Reston, VAJanuary 26, 2015
Pros: very relaxed, friendly environment; work involves food
Cons: not fantastic workplace culture (no interaction outside of office)
GateGourmet has been a great introduction to the full-time office/workplace and has been integral in allowing me to develop the skills necessary to thrive in a professional environment. I have learned how to communicate effectively, both internally with my team members and other departments, as well as externally with clients and suppliers. My proficiency in programs such as MS Outlook & Excel, as well as SAP has dramatically improved and I have also learned how to efficiently manage my time.

The hardest part about this job is balancing and prioritizing the numerous projects that we are tasked with, many that arise unexpectedly or at the last minute. Despite these challenges, it is very fulfilling managing my projects and accounts and knowing that the work I put in resulted in my accounts running smoothly.

nice and enjoyable work place
Warehouse Worker/Driver (Former Employee), SeaTac, WAJanuary 23, 2015
Pros: free coffee
Cons: no break sometimes
normally it is busy and always running around
the most ting i don't like about this place is the management is not good.
the co-workers are fun and makes the work easier because they allays make you lough and have a good time as you working.
the hardest time of this job is dealing with the weather because we got to be out side in the rain, snow, son, windy all that. sometimes no break at all. sometimes we work overtime and if it busy we dont get no breaks.

Flight coordinator (Current Employee), Chicago, ILDecember 10, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: high health care
As I clock in to work my duties start as follows, check in with the operation assistant on the final number of passengers my assigned flight needs to be catered for. I have a check list I have to go through for my flight which included orders with food, snacks and equipment for the plane that is catered by the company I work for. I am responsible for the flight being catered before departure time. After going through the check list in the kitchen, I then have to drive to the airport and meet with the flight attendants and go over there order with them.
