Food Prep (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJuly 19, 2018

Storeroom Equipment Clerk (Former Employee) –  SeaTac, WAJuly 11, 2018
Organized and clean. The supervisors are not very knowledgeable when it came to the requests for additional training. Opportunity for advancement was limited to those who work grave yard shifts. My peers were wonderful to work with. Teamwork is important. Felt like job opportunities to advance didn't come available for the night shift employees.
Pros
Meals
Cons

Storeroom Clerk (Former Employee) –  Grapevine, TXJuly 5, 2018
I worked with a manager that I knew from a previous time period. The manager was a strict person and a perfectionist however that was needed to reform the storeroom and give it the necessary structure it needed. It was a great time spent there and I would go back if given the chance.

Not a great place to work
Assembler, Production Line (Former Employee) –  Hollywood, FLJuly 5, 2018
They have no affiliation with the airport so no discounts on that..next there pay is extremely low with the amount of work you have to do in the time frame given...to get a decent pay check you have to work 50+ hours to see a decent check after all your benefits & union fees...and there sneaky uniform fee...the free food is terrible some days they don't feed you...so you have to bring your own food...gate gourmet is not a place you want to stay working at no more than a month...
Pros
Nothing good
Cons
Dont work here
