    I have been working at Jewel-Osco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities for overtime if you need the money. Manager Trainee program still pays hourly. IF YOU HAVE GROCERY EXPERIENCE, ASK FOR MORE MONEY during interviews. If you don't fight for the wage you deserve, they will be happy to give you less.

    Cons

    Horrible work/life balance.
    If you are full time they can transfer you anywhere. Find out your schedule at the last minute, but have to give advanced notice for days off with no guarantee. Also hours and days off are all over the place


  9. "Deli clerk"

    Pros

    Meeting new people everyday and enjoying the job enjoying your co workers also having customers care about what's going on with yourself and family

    Cons

    Could cut yourself and having females taking the trash out getting hit in the head and no one cares about it not even the management


  10. "Unappreciated Employees"

    I worked at Jewel-Osco part-time

    Pros

    Depending on location co-workers/managers can be nice

    Cons

    Corporate overhead/ego measuring is ridiculous, low pay, overworked, understaffed, slow implementation, unappreciated employees cause high turnover rate, unnecessarily strict and meaningless 'no tolerance' policies.

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff with more respect for less turnaround and more loyal employees.
