This is the worst Jewel I have ever gone. Customer service is the worst. I asked for an employee if they had more jello in stock and he said, "what ever we have on the shelf" then I asked another employee where I can find the baby products. He answered with a dumb expression, " I don't know" And on top of that, an employee was following me through all the store. Why would I a secert shopper steal? If I get this thing free after my company pays me. avoid this store.

I don't think employees follow me through the store but they ARE VERY rude and disrepectful. I go out to the jewel at western. They respect their customers and everything stocked. Avoid the jewel at 4250 N. Lincoln.

blame the unions --the slackers don't care about any thing ,.....{except their fat paychecks }-- boycott jewel and dominicks -- patronize only non union shops , unions are ruining the city - from the over paid bus drivers -the lazy city workers -the wicked McCormick place workers -- screw them all ,...we must fight back -- boycott the union shops

I work in a decent job and make good money but every time I go to the Jewel at 4250 N. Lincoln. There is an employee following me through all the isles of the store. It makes me believe that they DO NOT want my business. I try to avoid the store on lincoln as much as possible and only go there if I really NEED something.

If 3 different people have the same experience in one store that says that

1. they may have been having shoplifting problems and management has told the employees to watch customers or

2. that the manager has not trained the employees or

3. the manager has not assigned them to do specific tasks which keep them occupied.

Excessive "shrinkage" aka theft is a big problem for grocery stores which work on small profit margins. That is why there are food deserts in the poorer neighborhoods.

If the Jewel on Lincoln is otherwise convenient, clean, and stocked, take your complaints in writing to their corporate office in Northlake. They want customers to come back.

On the other hand if all you want to do is gripe, stay here on Topix, but don't expect anything to change. The choice is yours.

I have had nothing but good experiences at this Jewel. If an employee follows you around, just look them in the eye and say "Can I help you?" in a calm but forceful tone.
If you haven't done anything wrong, there should be no worries at all.
Check your own politeness too...some shoppers I see act like whiny babies but expect store employees to kiss their butts. Well obviously that doesn't work.

I have no problems at any store mostly because I am nice and polite. Check your own behavior, could you be behind the treatment you are getting?

I am going to write to their corporate office and maybe this will stop.

Good. keep on being polite, it pisses jerky people off like crazy!!!!! There isn't anything they can do about a person merely shopping in the store.

Poor customer service seems to be the norm at several corporate stores and I truly believe it can be traced back to managment.

TV ads show smiling, polite employees providing prompt service. More often than not, it's just the opposite. Rudeness isn't my biggest complaint, it's indifference to customers with a 'you're bothering me' attitude that workers portray.

The common denominator is low pay. Personnel earning low pay are the ones making customer contact. Almost all employees making next to nothing seem as though they could care less if they lose their job.

Everyone can't make a six figure salary, but maybe if an employee earned a decent wage, instead of senior management taking millions of dollara each,
the employee would appreciate they're employer and work harder.

It takes forever to get and keep a customer, but only a second to lose one.

Cite your references please. What union and what local?
Every and I mean every union contract has provisions for progressive discipline up to termination. Please give specific costs for some basic grocery items priced at jewel, Dominicks and an independent grocery which is verifiable non- union.
Otherwise, when you spout off, do it in the john, not in public.

He is an easy target. There are a couple others today who are sounding dumb as a box of rocks but I know them, like them and am too busy to hassle them. So there you go.
Haven't seen you in a bit. Hope all is well.

Been swamped at work, but in this economy that's not an entirely bad thing.
