  2. Ms.J 29/04/2014 at 4:43 am

    So Would We Be Hired At The Job Fair Or We Have To Apply Online ?

    • Customer Care 29/04/2014 at 8:00 am

      Hi there, Ms. J. You are more than welcome to fill out a job application online by visiting Good luck, and thanks for stopping by!

    • Customer Care 29/04/2014 at 3:03 pm

      We also wanted to let you know the benefit of bringing your resume to the store at the time of the Job Fair, Ms.J. In some locations they will actually be conducting on the spot interviews, which could definitely get applicants on the fast track to a position. We hope this helps. Thanks for being a Jewel-Osco fan!

  3. Wendi 29/04/2014 at 8:42 am

    Same question as ,ms j will they be actually hiring on the spot at the job fair? and do u have to do a job application prior or can u wait till u get they’re ? lastly if these locations aren’t open, yet exactly what buildings are the fairs being held at?

    • Customer Care 29/04/2014 at 3:04 pm

      Good question, Wendi. You do not have to apply prior to attending the job fair, as they will be accepting resumes in person. Management will not be hiring on the spot, but in some locations they may be having on the spot interviews. As for your question on the locations of the job fairs, they will be at the addresses (in red) and times listed above. We hope this answers your questions, if not, please let us know.

  7. Keiyeahra Williams 30/04/2014 at 3:28 pm

    Hello how you doing I recently went to the location in Merrionette park and filled out a application and went through the pre interview process , along with filling out other paper work . When should I get a call letting me know if I was selected for further processing. I also brought my resume in which they didn’t really look at. What are my chances of getting hired?

    • Customer Care 01/05/2014 at 6:32 pm

      Great question, Keiyeahra! If you are selected for further processing, it will be later in the month. It’s hard to say at this point what the chances are, since we have five Job Fair dates for this location, but it wouldn’t hurt to follow up with our Division Office sometime within the next week. Thank you for your interest and we wish you the best!

  21. jorge bahena 01/05/2014 at 7:00 pm

    if i apply online can i submit my resume there rather than taking it to the job fair? and if not is there anywhere i can email it to?

    • Customer Care 01/05/2014 at 9:38 pm

  22. Karen 01/05/2014 at 11:06 pm

    What is your starting wage for cashiers?
