I have been working at Gate Gourmet full-time (less than a year)

Pros

This is a company of doers. Driven people and determination to succeed. Your day will never be boring. You will realize quickly that 90% of people cannot handle multitasking, meeting deadlines and thinking outside of the box. Any level position is designed to be a "stretch" position because that's the only way you will realize your potential. 10% of society can handle the workload. 90% are lazy and think their job is just a pay check. This job and company are designed to push you beyond your limits. Come here to kick start your career and stand out amongst other candidates.

Cons

You will realize who can't handle the business quickly. They usually quit within 18 months. Stay away from these lazy people.

    Pros

    It's an atmosphere of constant change so you will get good experience, but that comes at a high price.

    Cons

    The high price: long hours for pay below the market, management that is poorly educated - many of the old timers are airline catering veterans that maybe graduated from high school, if you don't have airline catering exp. it is hard to get ahead, inadequate systems, no ability to make decisions as this is tightly controlled at the top. It can be absolute chaos on the floor as the bottom line is to get the flights out on time. They talk about recognition and training, but it is lip service. This place crushes your soul.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The corporate types should actually work in the kitchen and see what it is like.
