    I worked at Jewel-Osco part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a great place to learn customer service skills. Plus you'll work with great unforgettable people.
    Through the union you are guaranteed at least twelve hours per week. That's more than you get at some companies.

    Cons

    To corporate you're just a number.
    After awhile you start to feel like a robot.
    Unpaid maternity leave.

    Advice to Management

    Get better maternity leave benefits. If you are not going to pay for it you could at least make it longer. 6 weeks isn't long enough time to spend with a newborn.
