Pros

the hours are very flexible for someone with another job or if they are a student. the pay is competitive as well. You wont be able to make that much at most other easy entry level jobs. I have worked for both Publix and Winn-Dixie, they don't even compare. Publix takes care of those that want to work!! If your lazy, you'll stay making minimum wage. If you care and work hard, then you are rewarded with more hours and more pay. Name another retailer that pays there PART-TIMERS 4 retail bonuses and a Christmas bonus, plus vacation time. Don't even get me started on how well they take care of there full time associates. Stop complaining, you can't get everything on a silver platter, some things you have to earn.

Cons

the management is horrible, and advancement is hard to attain

Advice to Management

listen to the lowetr level employess as well as managers

    Pros

    Publix is entirely owned by its employees.Each year you recieve stock and dividends. You also recieve two weeks bonus pay for Christmas (after five years), inventory bonus' four times a year and a pretty good dental, vision and medical plan. You are generally treated with respect and common courtesy. For the most part, it is a joy to go to work. Every five years, you are invited to a banquet to celebrate your time with the company. You also get to choose a reward from a catalog. Advancement is easy if you have the desire and the company is financially sound. They are constantly opening stores and expanding.

    Cons

    Publix expects you to place them at the forefront of your life. Being an "owner" (stockholder) of the company, you are expected to be available at any and all times for any task, regardless of your position. With the company expanding as fast as it is, there are times when people are promoted to fill positions who shouldnt be. I worry that with the company becoming as large as it is, that the precepts set forth by Mr. George will soon be cast to the side in the name of profit. God Bless You Mr. George! You are sorely missed.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Publix is a great place to work at because it really feels like your part of a family. The people were really great to work with, from cashiers to managers. You get to interact with many different types of people and customers and there is room to advance. I definetely recommend this because it was really fun and rewarding to work here. The pay is decent and you really do feel like your contributing to something worthwhile. I've always loved shopping here but working here is just as rewarding. It was a tgreat experience and I am pleased to have worked there.

    Cons

    The negative aspects that are seen when working at Publix are dealing with negative and stubborn customers who believe they are always right and that you are wrong, when maybe that is not the case. Sometimes you have to deal with agitated customers, and it can be challenging because you want to work everything out calmly without any problems from managemnet or whatever. but overall this is seen at all retail stores and is always going to be around. So the pros defintely outweigh the cons in this situation and reccomend it to anyone interested in customer relations and a great place to work at.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management is doing a terrific job here at Publix. They truly challenge the worker to strive to be the best and make you feel like your work is really having an impact on the entire organization, which it is. Every part of Publix is needed in order to make it what it is today. I am proud to work here and management is partially responsible for this. Management is friendly to all its workers, from the bag people to the higher- ups.
