Employees are not machines.

Customer Service Staff (Former Employee) Tampa, FL

ProsUmmm....job security.
Meet many people, briefly.

ConsNote on the pros: (You can not get fired for most any reason...though they will cut your hours serverly if they want you to quit)

Schedules are not consistent...at all...with no checks in the computer that designs your schedule to prevent you from leaving at 11PM one night, and opening at 6AM the following morning.
Tasks are distributed despite seniority, or skill, or even job class. If you are in the fancy uniform to work customer service, get out and sweat outside getting carts because you are a bagger for the next hour.

I can only summarize, we should not be machines for $8.50/hr handling $15K+ of money every day....it's just absurd.

Advice to Senior ManagementPersons in the customer service should not just be any person that wants the job when it's need. If there is a shortage wait for proper staff to fill the void; in the long run greater employee moral would be expected

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    mostly good. Higher pay starting out then your average low skill job

    Deli Clerk (Current Employee) Alabaster, AL

    I have been working at Publix part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros: Benefits, (BCBS of Florida) available after a year. Vision and dental after 90 days, even for part-timers. My hours average 30-35 a week… Cons: Cashiers must be willing to bag also unless they are disabled.
