'I love my job': Brockton man, 79, reflects on nearly 65 years working at Stop & Shop
Joel Tenenbaum started at Stop & Shop when he was 15. Almost 65 years later, he's still on the job. Tenenbaum, 79, packs energy into his small frame. If you've bought groceries at the North Side Stop & Shop in the last 20 years, he's likely been your cashier. And you've probably heard some of his infamous jokes. "I love my job," Tenenbaum said in a recent interview across his kitchen table. "Oh, I love it. I love interacting with people, talking with them. They tell jokes. I tell them jokes back." On paper, the Brookfield man retired in 2012. But he still logs 15 to 20 hours working four days a week.
