    Pros

    free meal daily, never a dull moment, 12 hour shift goes by quick...

    Cons

    very unorganized. Training to cater planes and coordinating is poor at best. this company has a culture of screaming to communicate, high stress. the learning is mostly tribal knowledge and changes making it more difficult to build your flights. Mgmt. is a good ole boys club. the place would benefit with some six sigma and some lean reorganization. SAFETY is just a pencil whip program. night drivers are usually drunk by 2-4 am and no way to call them out on it due to nature of safety program and safety MGRs 9-5 workday. tons of paperwork and issues on the airside of airport out of your control. you want an airline catering job, look elsewhere. Be prepared to work 10-12 hour days more often than an 8 hour day.

    Advice to Management

    Get real. Change the culture, hold up to the passport to knowledge training your so proud of. give your supervisors some help. drunk drivers at night with no way to send them for testing without taking a delay because your supervisor is coordinating flight and cannot leave. trouble waiting to happen. save a penny now and set yourself up for a lawsuit. good luck, you will need it.

    Pros

    If you want experience in working with industrialized cooking equipment and seeing how cater for large amounts of people, great.

    Cons

    Lack of support and training in Des Plaines, Illinois hot food Department. Contradicting chefs, racism is very much alive and hostile. Also they do not follow Federal food regulations well which is a liability and you get retaliated against if you speak out on it.
    Nepotism is contagious with x Gate Gourmet employees from the chefs to the drivers. HIGH TURN OVERS AND UNFAIR LABOR PRACTICES.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring management , supervisors, chefs, cooks, hr administration that were Gate Gourmet employees. Bad structure is contagious and a liability.
