    Current Employee - Meat Wrapper in DeKalb, IL

    I have been working at Jewel-Osco part-time (more than an year)


    I am a really outgoing person, so customers and i will delve into a conversation. No customer has ever been rude toward me. I love helping people and getting compliments. It is therapeutic to work the racks and put the meet away. every aspect of my job I love. Even when I get home from a 7 hour shift i am still thinking about working. I have a lot of fun and I love my coworkers. My bosses like me too.


    Only Con is that i wish the pay was more. I do a significant amount of physical labor and extraordinary customer service. I love this job though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. You are perfect...I dont know about the people above them though. When a customer compliments an employee to a manager or service desk or even the survey. Tell that employee they are doing a good job. I worked so much harder after My store manager told me i was doing a good job. Try to promote a positive work environment. Psychologically it boosts confidence and happiness....those two things will have someone smiling when they punch in instead of frown.

    Positive Outlook
