      This company is focused on one thing and that is personal sacrifice and does nothing for it's people.

      Pros

      Free lunch which is not that good either. The food is usually cold and high in carbs which does nothing for people trying to be healthy. They also have the same thing for 3 to 4 days in a row.

      Cons

      Management does not care, long hours, no caring for the people who work there, do unethical things like falsifying records (personal experience with this). They continually ask for more and more and do not care about what it takes to do it. Nothing is good enough and there is never any praise for what you do right. Working 12 to 15 hour days is a regular thing.

      Pros

      There are really no good qualities about this company.

      Cons

      The culture at this company is one of complete chaos. It seems that no one is happy working their. All of the employees constantly complaint about the hours and pay. The moral is extremely low. The turn over is extremely high especially in the transportation and dish room area's. They utilize a great deal of temporary help because that place is ran like a plantation. One of the policies is supposed to be " No profanity" but all day long that is all you hear !! From the GM, Operation Manager, Supervisors, and all the staff. This is by fair the most unprofessional company I have ever worked for. The pay is completely terrible !! Long hours, holidays, and weekends with little or no compensation. You don't want to work here !!!

      Pros

      Always being put to the test. Great opportunity to prove yourself and tackle unexpected challenges. You will never get bored. Go home proud of what you achieve each and every day.

      Cons

      Very long hours and unreasonably high expectations! No work-life balance. Poor benefits package. Promotion and job security not necessarily based on performance.

      Pros

      Fast paced environment that makes the work day go by quickly. Opportunities for advancement as long as you are the right person. Willing to hire just about anyone for hourly positions. Travel

      Cons

      Extremely long hours. Very stressful. Regularly expected to stay for OT due to being short staffed.. The company talks a big game about safety and how they care about their employees but only if it doesn't cost them too much. Pay is questionable for the amount of work and stress that comes with working here.

      Pros

      You'll get a lot of experience! Good stepping stone to a better company.

      Cons

      Make sure to bargain for the highest comp. you can get as it will be really hard to get more money once you work there. There are a lot of industry veterans with no experience outside the industry and with no higher education. Very, tough environment with REALLY long hours. Intense pressure to change things all the time.

      Pros

      Always something changing, never boring since the airline industry drives Gate Gourmet's main business lines

      Cons

      International travel was expected but rarely happened. People often quit due to the unfair pressures and management's KITA methodology (Kick In The Ass) which resulted in people being frustrated, working long hours and being told to always have their phone on and their email up.
