    I worked at Jewel-Osco part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very good food, nice co-workers. Most of the customers are friendly and are not bad people. Overall very good experience.

    Cons

    The manager was extremely mean and did not care at all about your personal interests or well being. Many times was overworked for what i was being paid to do.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better, this will make more stay on.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Jewel-Osco.

    Interview

    my interviewer was very brief and to the point. he was a very laid back interviewer. he was straight to the point and quick with his responses. and hired me on the spot and whisked me away for background and drug testing.
