    I have been working at Publix full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Publix in itself is a great company! It has great benefits and also as an associate you can acquire stock with the company which is also a great plus. They actually care. They work with you with scheduling and they make every effort to see you suceed.

    Cons

    Mirco managing. Micro managing is going to drive the atmosphere at Publix into the ground. They are quick to point out faults but only a select few will make you feel like you are appreciated. It is a great company and the atmosphere with shoppers is undeniably the best, however the atmosphere with the associates needs work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please work on the relationship with your associates! Do not just point out their faults. they need to hear when they are doing a great job as well and that you appreciate them.

    If you want to move up in management, it is fairly easy. Just work, be on time, do you duties. Talk to the manager in department and with other higher mangers that you want to move up and build a career with them
