    Pros

    Starting 💰 is good job 👏 😎 to work for get all of your breaks 🥘 is 👍 and lots of OT

    I worked at Gate Gourmet (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They gave us free pop and soda. I guess thats a pro... also it is easily accessible via the Blue Line. Other than that there are no other pros.

    Cons

    The previous negative reviews are true. Just like you, I thought it was an exaggeration. It wasnt. Let me explain. Everyone working as a ramp agent is miserable. That led to apathy. Nobody cares about anyone. The coworkers gossip and spread lies; sometimes, with other members of management who are just as toxic. There is a certain employee of human resources at the warehouse who doesnt want to do their job, pushes off her task to everyone else, and really rude.

    They tell you when hired, there are no opportunities for growth.

    All of these factors just forced me to quit.

    Advice to Management

    Get more professional people in management!

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

    Pros

    There is some semblance of a job here somewhere, within the mess. Some of the people are decent and hard working, but that is entirely where it ends.

    Cons

    This company has been reorganized and redistributed several times over the years. It's a nightmare. The way they treat their employees is a joke, their sense of politically correct is comical and the entire organization is a waste of time. Avoid employment at this company, your European overlords will not compensate you for hard work and think you are inferior.

    Advice to Management

    Sell you stocks, or find another job.
