Dishwasher/ food prep
Dishwasher/Prep Cook (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS30 July 2018
Mist of the staff are great. As for the job, it's hard,dirty everything is falling apart. A/C hasnt worked for a very long time so we work in a 32-34 degree heat, that's at am in the morning. Imagine the afternoons the head is grueling. They say food is free but its taken off your pay cheque. Most of management are lazy and dont do anything. I can't imagine eating a salad coming from such a heat place. No shorts allowed, extremely hard work for minimum wage
Heat stroke and heat exhaustion is a given at YHZ.
Pros
I get a small paycheck. Workers are ok
Cons
Hard work, to hot to work in.

A chaotic and hectic workplace
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Richmond, BC28 March 2018
Working at other places and seeing the difference is like night and day. Highly disorganized and messy shop all of which is a result of prioritizing quantity over efficiency, quality , and safety.


Draconian management, runs the facility in the cheapest and most short sighted way possible with only short term solutions in mind. They cant even be bothered to clear the parking lots during a snow storm for employees. There seems to be at times a lack of accountability, but plenty of finger pointing, guilt by association, and passing the buck. I have seen others leave due a toxic work environment.
Pros
free lunch
Cons
lunch sometimes isn't ideal

The worst place to work at.
Transportation (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB21 December 2017
Worked there for a while in the Edmonton location.
All what you can see is careless managers that has no common sense & no brain.
If there will be an Oscar Awards in stupidity, then Gate Gourmet management will win it proudly with no doubt.
My advice is to stay away from that place. Too much headache & nobody care.

The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak
Commissary (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON7 July 2017
Working for a transport catering outfit is never going to come to much, so there's not really much scope for getting more out of this unionised job. The work can be relatively easy and the teams are fun to work with, but getting the place to be more efficient is nearly impossible as the management are focused on the Gate OPEX standards and not on the encouragement of a positive attitude in the workplace.
Pros
Lunch is fifty cents off your paycheck. Full benefits when on full time hours.
Cons
Sometimes scheduled for a four hour shift, end up having to do 12 hours because someone else screwed up
