Application

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Gate Gourmet (Orlando, FL) in September 2013.

Interview

Got a call from Corp Office in Atlanta for Sous Chef position at the flight kitchen in Orlando. I have previous airline experience so thought it would be a good fit. Corp HR did a phone screen then gave me info for the Orlando GM. Contacted him and set up interview time. Met with GM who gave me a tour of the huge facility and a good overview of the operation. After hearing all about the company and the local operation, salary negotiations started. Not much to negotiate; salary was low to begin with but I would have accepted to get out of present employment. Salary range between high/low was only $2k per year, I suggested my experience was inline with the "high end" given my previous experience. GM suggests that I meet with the Chef, who would be my supervisor.

Interview Questions

  • Never was able to interview with the Chef, after several emails to the GM (unreturned) and calls to the facility, was unable to even leave a message with the chef. Saw a post on a job board for a first cook for same Orlando location. Leads me to believe that the present First cook was promoted, using me as a "backup candidate" if he/she declined.   1 Answer
