    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Jewel-Osco.

    Interview

    Met in a group and went over the policy's and procedures. Went through customer service training which was very helpful. We then were able to practice bagging the customer's groceries and learn the register for different transactions. Was very helpful on getting us prepared for our first day on the job.
