    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere and hard working environment. Lots of overtime is rewarding for anyone establishing a career in food catering business.

    Cons

    I can't seem to have none to say about the company. Hire pay would be better for any of its workers.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with excellence. New customers are seeking the very best quality.

    Unprofessional! Hire new people specially HR!! They lure you and hire you but give you hopes for nothing at all!!

    Bad company! I won’t recommend this at all!! I will post this on social media how bad this company! Good luck!

    Advice to Management

    If you hire someone, try to contact the person instead they waited for nothing! Also don’t change the job title after you hire people! Telling them you looking for the job you wanted!!

    I worked at Gate Gourmet full-time

    Pros

    Not a single damn pro other than the short changed paycheck

    Cons

    -The free lunches they prepare for employees loose dogs wouldn't eat
    -No raises only promises of yearly raises and then they purposely
     grade your performance as low so that they don't have to give raises
    -Managers do not care about employees. They encourage you to quit.
    -No accountability
    -It doesn't matter how you do it as long as it gets done crappy or not.
    -Sexual harassment runs rampant
    -No upward mobility
    -HR always helps the GM never the employees
    -They do not promote from within ever, and when they do they give -
     you only a 5% increase. They would rather bring in someone who knows nothing and pay them more. Then have you train them although you don't "qualify".
    -They hate women and don't promote women. They feel women are too
     emotional.

    Advice to Management

    Get admitted to the psych ward
