Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Dulles, VA – July 17, 2012
everyday was the same nothing changed, we would get shippments from big companys of big amounts of food we would have to store and date in a -5 freezer A big thing i got from the job was working alone, because when i got to the job it was alot of people leaving the job so they put me in a area that i control a whole cooler to myself! I did inventory alone i stock and dated all the food myself! I had good co-workers when i seen them i was always working alone so it wasnt to much interacting wit them. the toughest part of the job was learning to work alone at a fast past and just making sure everything was done good! The best part of the job was getting to eat lunch for free it was always a good meal and on the plus side it was free!

Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – September 8, 2016
I worked 3 month in the night shift and three month in the day shift. I was dishes and throw away the food from the fights. I also manage the staff during the night shift. I cleaned the floor and the work area before leaving every day.
Driver/Laborer (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – August 29, 2016
No job security and extensive amount of work for very little pay. No air conditioning in the trucks during the summer and heat in the winter. During the summer you nearly pass out of heat stroke and get no breaks. As for the winter you freeze with no heat in the trucks and the best they can do is leave the trucks running 24/7 so the engine can stay warm. They expect top of the line performance but do not show appreciation for the employees.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Inglewood, CA – August 25, 2016
Working at Sky Chefs was a very positive experience. You not only had the support and understanding of your managers but of your co-workers as well. I can truly say working there gave me the experience that prepared for anything i decided to do in my life (work related).
Continuous movement and activity throughout entire shift
Airline Food & Beverage Equipment Assembler (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI 48242 – August 14, 2016
A typical day at work would consist of myself and co-workers working together to complete food trays, snacks, and beverages for 10+ DELTA flights. On some days, we're working in the cooler and stocking inventory, and on other days, we're in the kitchen making and wrapping sandwiches, filling and assorting food trays, and restocking beverage stock onto carts for flights. My work environment is enjoyable as co-workers and I work together to complete our daily agenda, while reporting to our shift supervisor about our completed work. A clean and sanitized work station is required throughout the shift.
Assembler/Packer (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – August 11, 2016
Sky Chef was an amazing job. Typical day at work is to come in and do what you are supposed to do depending on where your stationed for that day. I learned how to make the snack baskets for the airplanes. The management are all attentive and they are very very helpful. My co-workers were fine.
Food prep (Former Employee) – South San Francisco, CA – August 6, 2016
Had a fun time with some of the employees, I also tried to keep it friendly and productive as possible. I Also trained most of the new employees, simply because none of the managers felt the need, I did this without pay.

Assembly Builder (Former Employee) – Jamaica, NY – June 7, 2016
Since i have been working for Sky chefs, I have experience a lot of mischievous acts of employment. There is too much slack giving to the overnight shift. There is a lot of laziness and slack. not much contact with the the supervisors. Everything is touch and go with sky chefs. if you dont have the right information that they are looking for the company will not help you regardless of the situation. As an employee I did a good job at making myself available around the clock. especially working overnight. But there has been problems with an unfortunate event that has lead me to quit
free lunches and dinners, promotions and better opportunites
work load is too heavy, short breaks. Not really a secure and accurate to younger employees
Enjoyable , exciting , learning environment I learned more about purchasing and buying, it productive environment . • Maintains appropriate records, files, documentation as required by the Corporate Procurement team • Facilitate the vendor completion of required “Vendor Set Up” documentation and prompt consolidated delivery to the Vendor Gatekeeper • Issue “Request for Proposal” forms under the direction of Managers/Buyers • Assist with the tracking of departmental performance measures/metrics and the reporting of those metrics
Equipment/Sanitation Manager (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – June 2, 2016
The work is a fast pace environment. Dealing with Airline catering the work schedule changes drastically according to aircraft delays. Company does train management in multi tasking. Great place for management training.
