Cashier (Former Employee) – Clinton, IA – February 13, 2019
I absolutely hated my job. I was a cashier. I'm a people person that has never met a stranger. But this job was so depressing. The managers were horrible to work for. They were very rude. Talked about everyone to other employees. They were not fair with the workers at all. They showed favoritism. Two baggers would be at one register talking while the cashiers on express lane bagged her groceries most of her shift. What was good for one employee was not good for the next one. You only got one 10 minute break for a 5 hour shift.would never recommend this job to anyone! !
Short breaks, have favorites, poor work ethics. Low pay
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 10, 2019
This place was very stressful. They offered me more responsibility with little to no compensation. Some management was not sensitive to the needs of their employees which lead to an even more stressful environment. Employees also were not very well protected.

They promise many hours but lie. They throw you around like in an abusive relationship. Favoritism is seen allot. Management will put you at 16 hours every week to kick you out and then lie that they hate to see you go.

It is a good temporary part time job. However in the long run, you're better off elsewhere. Eventually I got capped off on raises. I'd understand that is a thing however minimum wage has gone up in the county my Jewel is located in so now people who are starting get paid the same. Other than that, the people are great. Hours are given based on seniority and availability. Schedule is inconsistent though.
5% discount on everything. 10% discount on store brand items.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Wheaton, IL – February 5, 2019
Management is pushy with having people pick up shifts. Management almost always defends the customers and will not defend the employee, The very personification of " The customer is always right " mentality.
There is a lot of drama between co-workers, which cause a lot of people to quit. This job feels like a 2nd high school, with all the drama and mostly working with people that you went to high school with.
They are flexible with requesting off days, as long as you live 2 weeks advance notice.
15 minutes breaks are very strictly enforced, from the time you are told to take your break to when you come back to your work station.

I loved working at Jewel Osco I was very mad I had to relocate but the cost of living in Illinois was very high and I have three kids I only had two at the time and one on the way if I ever decide to move back to illinois I would definitely go back
Produce Associate (Former Employee) – Hickory Hills, IL – January 30, 2019
Lifting 50lb boxes repetitively through a 8 hour shift is very hard labor. It is back breaking. Injuries will happen if not aware of what you are doing. For the amount of work you do, the pay is not worth it. Union dues are taken out week, and with the small amount of money when you get your check...it's just not worth it.
Fast paced environment, short staffed but management is helpful. Just need more workforce.
Overnight Grocery Clerk (Former Employee) – Glen Ellyn, IL – January 27, 2019
Need improvement in employee benefits and compensation. Very flexible with your availability. Management tries to help but will definitely need more people and improve workforce to avoid overworked employees.
Collaborative workplace that teaches good teamwork
Produce Clerk (Former Employee) – Hoffman Estates, IL – January 23, 2019
In every department in the store certain things need to be done and the manager isn't necessarily always there to tell you what needs to be done. This forces employees to collaborate and create a plan to get things done
Assistant Deli Service Manager Assisting customers (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 23, 2019
Most days were helping senior citizens to understand how their deli items were served and how to keep them as fresh as possible, I also helped many people with other items besides the sliced meats and cheeses. I had to order inventory and do other
