    I worked at Gate Gourmet full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Guaranteed 40 hours per week.
    Free Lunch

    That's all the pros I can think of for this job. I truly hated this job. I wouldn't recommend anyone work heere unless they were on the verge of being homeless or starving.

    Cons

    Bad Work Hours
    Location too far
    Racist coworkers
    Coworkers who don't speak English at all.
    Minimum wage to start and with a .05(yes that's a nickel) raise after 3 months.

    I really could go on and on about the cons. But seriiusly don't work here. They will truly hire anyone. Even people who don't speak English. How in the world am I supposed to communicate with someone who doesn't speak ANY English? Then when you go to management about it they don't care. And the amount of subliminal racism I experienced here was ridiculous. I lasted three months in this job.

    You don't get paid enough for the work you do and then they constantly change the work hours. And then ever so often there is something called a bid. Where you can bid to get a better schedule but that rarely happens if you don't have any seniority and if a person who has been at the job longer than you decides they want your job guess what? They can bid for it and your days off change and your hours could change too.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone fairly and pay your employees more and maybe you wouldn't have such high turnover.

    Pros

    Potential to stay long term

    Cons

    no room for advancement within the company

    Advice to Management

    Don't believe anything about raises and bonuses. Half the people get them, the other half are doomed because of scaling and not because of performance.
