    I have been working at Publix part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a great company,They take pride in making your shopping experience the best.

    Cons

    People want to get mad and yell and call you mean names. When they come in a game day and they have to wait on their order. Instead of calling in a head the way they don't have to wait.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please rethink about throw out all of the food at the end of the night. There are non profit organization that could use it to help feed the homeless. Thanks

    Despite the tuition reimbursement, if you're a college student forget about it.

    Pros

    Great Company, Looks decent on a resume, okay pay, good benefits, great staffing, okay managers.

    Cons

    NOT flexible! Can't feed myself, pay bills, sleep, and study at the same time or ATLEAST in the SAME WEEK! Despite the tuition reimbursement, I once worked for Publix 5yrs ago as a teen graduating high school, then a freshman in college when scheduling made SENSE (I was unaware of the current "new changes" today) but back then I had a set schedule that worked with my life, now there is the oasis random scheduling crap with random hours that vary from week to week! It's either be smart, ditch this place, get a real job that at least still offers the same benefits and go to college or ELSE, you'll end up stuck here for the rest of you life.

    I worked at Publix

    Pros

    Good training
    Stock options
    Good benefits package
    Usually fun and cool managers
    If you work hard, they recognize and you can advance in the company at a decent rate of time

    Cons

    No hours available, thus can't get benefits
    Favoritism happens at some stores

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stop hiring on more people we don't need at the store and give those hours to the people who don't call in sick/ant the hours that have been there for awhile.

    I worked at Publix part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Raises were frequent. Company values were solid and reliable. General appreciation for employees.

    Cons

    Work was not divided equally among us "Deli Clerks". I remember busting my hump every night in hopes of getting off work at a decent hour. While I worked I saw many other employees taking their time, texting, and playing. My work was appreciated by few and didn't count for much as I typically bicycled home at 1am. This may be location specific however.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mind the late shifts. Many of the people who work the night shifts (while the managers are gone) are inefficient and careless.

    It's alright. I don't enjoy working in student stores. Your hours are based on the influx of students and customers.

    Pros

    Part-time benefits, stock, 401k, retirement.

    Cons

    After a while you start to feel oppressed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers, your moral and how you treat your employees reflects on the whole department. If you treat your employees sub-par, you will receive the same.
