    I worked at Gate Gourmet full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    A steady weekly salary. Paid 1 week training Paid Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner 1 Uniform paid for by company

    Cons

    There are flexible hours however your shift is randomly changed without employee consultation. No Vacation for a year, then it's only 1 week of time off. Overtime is not shared with all the driver except for a handful of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Spread the overtime over all the employees that want it. Consult with employees when changing their shifts.

      Overtime Downtime during shift Good full time if you attend college

      Less benefit Bad management Miscommunication Conflict between supervision and subordinates

      Advice to Management

      It s an ok company to transit through for something better... There is an opportunity of overtime as you wish. But there are real problems such as bad management or miscommunication. They don't offer good benefits to employees also.
