Jewel-Osco Employee

"I have worked in the meat department of a Jewel-Osco between 4-12 years (I prefer not to be exact). The work is miserable: Store directors and their assistants are condescending, rude, create hostile working environments and are accountable to no one. Department managers are more personable.Pay is inadequate to compensate for job stress. Supplies are very limited and one frequently lacks the tools and time to perform to a manager's standards and is usually held responsible for it regardless."

"Good part time work for those seeking their first job. Some full time opportunities but hours are scarce. Like most large corporations there is very little control in how you carry out your work and routine and procedure are put ahead of logic."
