    I have been working at Jewel-Osco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    entry level, easy to learn, and they will take anyone, you will meet and be taught by people from all around the business

    Cons

    management is terrible, work is either nonexistent or overloaded, as for employees its a mixed bag you either get the best or you get to work with complete idiots

    Advice to Management

    let your assistants do what they know best and focus on your role dont force your work onto lower level management because you dont want to do it
