Gate Gourmet has gone downhill in the last few years.
Overnight Manager (Former Employee) –  Schiller Park, ILLINOISApril 20, 2019
The unit has become an asylum for belligerent young African American individuals. It may as well be run by the union and street gangs. The lack of unprofessional work ethics is absurd. And this is supported by the General Manager and the human resources department.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Lack of discipline from the top The rules are only applied if th. When they feel like it, If Supervisors .

Nope. Wouldn't do it again
Equipment Assembler (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAApril 19, 2019
There is a poor taste in my mouth about the company for several reasons if I'm being honest. Something is wrong with the management. In the defense of the job I received from them (and resent a little) it is clearly stated in the application that the applicant agrees to lift push or pull 70+ lbs with help or something like that but I ignored it in desire to secure employment quickly, not mindful of what the true cost of having the job would be.
Pros
Free lunch, paid weekly.
Cons
Heavy repetitive work, really annoying environment with cheeky coworkers, I didn't feel respected for the amount of work, didn't want to give more in effort as a result

Great place to work, fast pace. Many personalities and room to grow with opportunities from the ground up. Great company to get your foot into the aviation industry.

Lead (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CA 92110April 10, 2019
Worked in a cooler under 40 degrees, they made everyone work overtime everyday even when that's against the law. The women who have been with the company for years were bullies. A lot of stress for not a lot of pay.

there's plenty of overtime so your checks can come out looking nice that's pretty much the only somewhat positive thing about Gate Gourmet
Management is bad, including HR.

Long hours, and horrible management

Not really good place to work
driver (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHMarch 26, 2019
Too many drama going here, it’s not good place to work here because they don’t raise the wages every year. Some coworkers are gossiped and treat badly for new commers. Be careful with those people in the building.
Pros
Free lunch but yesterday’s meal from CVG
Cons
Coworker acting like a supervisor on shift. Too many favoritism

Fast paced but fun place to work
Storeroom Clerk (Former Employee) –  O'hare International Airport, ILMarch 26, 2019
First, this is not a restaurant so why ask do we get tips? we’re dealing with the customers at all. It was a lot a drama in this place from the workers but if you mind your business you will be fine. I love this place because if you wanted to try something different, you have that opportunity. I’ve worked so many positions working here. You will gain a lot of experience.

This company is union based (Love It)
Everything is based off seniority so don’t get mad when the person who does nothing at all, lazy as out doors and don’t deserve it gets a positive over your great working skills.
Pros
Union
Cons
Drama

Cant believe osha hasn't closed this place.
Transportation (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVMarch 26, 2019
Started working at this place and was extremely frustrated with the fact that none of the leaders put in place that I was to train with spoke clear English or could give clear directions. On top of that all the equipment was unsafe with trash bags holding up safety rails on trucks to prevent you from falling down. Safety wires about to pop at any minute with wires broken and sharp. No sense of leadership from the leads on duty and being a union job none of the employees even could tell me about the union. When I asked they all told me the union just takes their money and does nothing. Your expected to stay late every night without being told to do so without mandatory overtime issued at all. This facility is old and needs a face lift as soon as possible with updates and new equipment before someone gets hurt or seriously injured. This is a worldwide company and needs to be looked at closely.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Unsafe, no overtime pay until your 40 hour mark, bad leadership, weird people.

That job sucks. 20 cent raise. Poor customer service. They treat employees with no respect. Food is nasty and people get sick due to mold. Bathrooms are nasty. Payroll is rude to employees and money goes missing for pay. They allow fighting. Overall not a good job to work at. Union fees

Not a good working enviornment
Buyer/Storeroom Supervisor (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOMarch 14, 2019
Kitchen was chaotic. Poor management, never proactive in improving work place. Union employees can do anything they want without worry of termination for violating company policy or union contract. No limitations set for customer orders.
Pros
free lunch
Cons
bad management
