    I applied online – interviewed at Gate Gourmet (Chicago, IL) in January 2015.

    Interview

    My first interview was very informal. I was asked questions without any pressure of having to say the correct thing. I did however wait for 1 1/2 hours for the interviewer to show up for the interview.
    It was a pleasant interview but the wait in my opinion was very unprofessional.

    • I was asked if I was available to work morning, afternoon and night shifts.   1 Answer

    I applied online – interviewed at Gate Gourmet.

    Interview

    First time I applied, did a short phone interview. Then I did an in person interview with hiring manager. He seemed really interested and was told Id get another interview with someone from operations. Never happened. I found out someone internal was hired. Second time I applied, no interviews necessary. They asked for recommendations from 5 professionals. Its a long process, emails get sent with surveys etc. I got a tbnts email for my interview (which I never had). I was informed that someone internal was hired. About the job, 5 days a week, 10 hr days. You must work 50 hours a week.(Is this legal?)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Gate Gourmet (South San Francisco, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and I received a call from an internal recruiter two weeks later. The recruiter, based in SOCAL, was not proficient with returning calls and did not provide an email address. After many calls, an interview time was set and I was informed that a confirmation email would follow - never happened. The day the hiring manager was to interview me, he did not call for the phone interview. I called the recruiter but I did not receive a return call or explanation. The next day, the hiring manager called me and offered no excuse for failing to call for the phone interview. We re-scheduled for the following day but I was told that if I did not receive a call, then I should call. The hiring manager did call but 20 minutes later than the confirmed. I was invited in for an in person interview three days later. After the in person interview, I was again contacted by the SOCAL recruiter a week later. The recruiter left a message that a link for a Caliper personality test would be sent to me that day and I was to complete it the same day. I took the test and never heard from either of them again. The entire experience has left an extremely poor impression of the fragmented, unorganized and unprofessional hiring process within the organization.
