    I have been working at Publix

    Pros

    The ideals the company was founded on are for the most part still in effect. The people you work with are warm and caring. Store managers are great.

    Cons

    Dept managers play favorites and don't uphold the standards that are set for hourly associates. A lot of tension between managers causes stress in the work enviroment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Moral within your department is MUCH more important than it seems. We can accomplish so much if teambuilding was focused on more.

    Pros

    Good atmosphere, work with positive people, friendly and family orientated.

    Cons

    High expectations, they will pay you good if you're the best, but don't ever get caught slipping.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't promise full-time to people only to get them to work harder.

    I have been working at Publix

    Pros

    I'm lucky enough to work a 5am-1:30pm shift. Not all scan/price clerks get this privilidge. It's easy enough work for the pay and Publix has wonderful benefits

    Cons

    Sometimes you will have a manager that cares less, and it really takes a toll on your department. Usually if you have a good store manager, they can whip them into shape, but not always.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love my management team. They are always trying to make you your best, and give you opportunities to move up!
