    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Jewel-Osco in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    It is said that Jewel-Osco will hire anyone and while that might be the case for the Jewel side; it is not the same for Osco. To get hired by Osco it is who you know and you have to go through at least 2 interviews plus come in for a drug test. The whole process can take at least two weeks depending on the manager. The manager will go through all of your work experience and tell you how hard it is to do the job. They will asked you about multitasking and performing "expert" customer service. If you click with the manager or if you are a "friend" you will get the job on the spot. They will also promise you things that will not happen such as schedule and being considerate.

    Interview Questions
    • They will ask you how to handle rude or displeased customers because they get so many. It is important to say you will kiss as much butt as possible to keep the customer happy.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They ask you how much you would like to start with, even though all wages are set by the union. You will make between .10 and .20 more than minimum wage.
