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 someone who has gone through our Store Manager Trainee program and stuck with us for 20 years!

This month, we are toasting to Joe G., a Store Director in the O’Hare District! Joe started with us in 1999 as a part-time Service Clerk. He worked with us all throughout high school. Joe decided to go to U of I and graduated in 2006! When he came back in 2006, he started training to become a Store Manager in our Store Manager Trainee program. While he passed all of the roles required for the program, in just a short few years, he became the Store Manager that he is today! 

Joe quotes: I like outdoor activities and enjoy kayaking and hiking. I love to travel and have been to 10 different countries in just the past 3 years. Jewel is a great place to work and has provided me with an opportunity to see and experience new things.”

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