    I worked at Jewel-Osco part-time

    Pros

    I worked at a smaller store and found it a rewarding experience. It was a great part time job when I was in college. I learned how to serve customers excellently, and had opportunities to work in other areas of the store as well when they needed an extra pair of hands elsewhere, so my skillset upon leaving the company had a great variety to work from in future.

    Cons

    Sometimes my schedule got mixed up so I would be put on the schedule when I was supposed to be at school, but this is not the norm by any means and could usually be cleared up by switching with someone. The pay and hours aren't great either (unless you like working the bare minimum of hours per week), but they're steady, so you won't have huge surprises on your schedule.

    I have been working at Jewel-Osco part-time

    Pros

    Wonderful co-workers, flexible schedule. Contact when hired. Work with a union. Different departments, possibly to change if you get bored.

    Cons

    Part time, can be overworked and called in alot. Have to be able to request off 3 weeks in advance for scheduling and if you miss it, it's too late.

    Pros

    Its a good job to work when you first get a job. You learn to deal with all types of people. You a get an discount even though its not a lot, but it helps. The people you work with are cool you also get payed weekly.

    Cons

    15 min breaks, when the managers are there they can be very annoying, and the pay could be better

    Advice to Management

    managers need to stop showing favoritism
