It’s time for a Tuesday Toast!

Lori Wash: Front End manager 
Employed at Jewel-Osco for 3.5 years
Part-time Cashier in 2015

Here at Jewel-Osco, we like to recognize our hardworking associates! Every month, we will have a Tuesday Toast, spotlighting one of these great employees!  We wanted to honor someone who is not only a hard working Jewel-Osco employee, but also was able to become a manager in such a short amount of time–with hard work!

This month, we are toasting Lori Wash, a Front End Manager at our Oak Park, IL store. Lori started with us in 2015 and has worked her way up the Jewel ladder. Lori started as a part-time Cashier clerk and after learning all the areas of the service desk, she became an Assistant Front End Manager in May of 2015. Shortly after, in January of 2016, she became a Front End Manager.

In her spare time, she enjoys being a sports mom, specifically basketball and baseball.

Lori also attended Kendall College.

She quotes “Opportunities are endless working for Jewel. Hard work and determination will take you as far as you want to go my story is proof.”

Check back every month to see who we’re toasting to! Cheers to Lori and all of her accomplishments!

    Jewel has many very hardworking associates in all their stores. I would like to nominate one of them.
    Ms. Kathy Vasile of the St. Charles Rd., Villa Park, Il store.
    Kathy is 67 years old, and has been a faithful checkout clerk for something like 13 years now.
    Through many health concerns, and situations, I feel Kathy has always tried to give the best service to her Jewel Osco customers. Over the years her personal care, and friendly personality have made many of her customers “friends” who look forward to Kathy’s greeting and smile when they shop. I feel she is a credit to Jewel Osco, and I know part of the reason why. Kathy is a 3rd generation Jewel Osco customer. Jewel Osco needs more good folks like her.

    Lori is awesome, she is very professional, friendly, outgoing, and has a great attitude even when some customers can be really mean she maintains her cool and high level of professionalism. I frequent this location and Lori is one of the reasons why.
