    Former Employee - Front End Cashier in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Jewel-Osco part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    -Unionized
    -Part time workers also eventually get vacations
    -Usually coworkers are great, as are most managers

    Cons

    -Customers are less than friendly (probably because of how "low class" Jewel itself is perceived to be)
    -No real way of being promoted, unless you work there for countless years (or you're promoted from bagger to cashier)
