I'm pretty new to New Lenox, and I've been getting to know the area, especially food on 30, since I eat out way too much. I just wonder about the Taco Bell, anyone work there or know anyone who works there? It seems shady. Always see several employees standing around outside late at night smoking (more than cigarettes, maybe?) and there's always kids hanging around the place at night like doing nothing. And when I go inside there's people talking about drugs and sex in the kitchen... I swear people are doing drugs or something in the bathrooms, they're always dirty and smell weird.

I wonder because my son says he wants to work there because he loves the food. He just turned 17 and is looking for a job, but idk how I feel about that place.

Interesting observation. For years I wondered and told others that maybe the owner should be more aware of its image. Constant loitering by teenagers and employees hanging out. Notba good image for competitive food service industry. Appears that you already made up your mind about your son.

a friend of mine saw a drug deal go down in the parking lot at Taco Bell. It wasn't a Taco Bell worker, but I wouldn't be surprised if some of them are in on the action.

Yes your probably right. To many rumors going around about what goes on with the workers from what my teens have said. Stay clear unless you want your son involved too

I once pulled into the drive-up early afternoon and a guy was pulled into the parking lot closest to the commons changing his clothes in broad daylight putting on his uniform!! He had no shame which lead me to believe it's not a great place to work or eat!! He was really scummy looking also!

I think you know exactly how you feel about the place
So you would rather read an electronic script over your own first hand encounter?

Jwewel used to be a good company to work for. Now there are very few full time employees,and if you're part time ,you'll be lucky to get 8 hours per week. Be prepared to give half of your paychcek to the union.

Jewel only gives 12 hours a week, they do pay $0.10 above minimum but won't increase pay when/if minimum goes up... the union takes about $10 a week. Plus, it's not as good as it used to be... I got out of there 2 years ago and all I ever hear my former co workers talking about is how they're on the verge of being bought out or closed.

Jewel was just recently bought. They have been gouging us for years. You reap what you sew. Jewel deserves to go out of business. They probably will when meijer comes to town. It is a POS store.
