    Pros

    Flexible hours, 401k, I love some of my fellow employees (others not so much).

    Cons

    Low pay compared to other similar jobs, can get VERY stressful at times, you don't get recognized for working extremely hard, my manager is extremely rude and doesn't seem to like any of the employees. It's hard to make the customers happy when you yourself are not happy with where you are working. You only receive one STRICT 15 minute break if you work a 6 hour shift (not enough time to buy food, eat it, and go to the bathroom). There is no real incentive to work hard because you will be treated the same way as someone who doesn't work hard. If you are looking to have a part time job while in highschool or college I would suggest somewhere else since you will get paid the same if not more, for a lot less stressful and easy job.

    Advice to Management

    Offer some type of incentive for working hard or going the extra mile, treat your employees with the respect you would like to receive, and make the environment open and fun so that employees want to work there and will be happy, which will make the customers happy also.

    Pros

    It can be really fun. It really depends on who you work with, I have been there for 4 1/2 years, Jewel Osco is a backup plan for me if I can't find a career in the field that I am studying.

    Cons

    At times the managers seem like they do not know what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    You guys really need to listen to your coworkers as a whole. Guacamole does not need to be made every single day.

    I worked at Jewel-Osco part-time

    Pros

    Its okay if you dont have experience or are still in high school, was hired quickly, work was not that difficult

    Cons

    They dont give you that many hours, minimum wage, didn't seem to be much opportunity for growth, had to pay union dues even though it was part time and minimum wage, probably a pretty typical low end job but not the worst

    Advice to Management

    Management was okay overall, though I found some of the training silly like saying the quality of their employees made it worth paying more for items than their competitors although the competitors were paying more Aldi for example pays more quite a bit more than min wage I guess this kind of training is standard corporate practice so Ishould not complain that much
