    I have been working at Jewel-Osco part-time

    Pros

    Paid well and gain valuable work experience

    Cons

    Patients can be very mean sometimes and the store gets very busy, with cut hours, it’s tough to keep up!

    Advice to Management

    Increase man hours so we can get our job done more effectively to keep patients happy!
