Current Employee - Cashier in Orlando, FL
Current Employee - Cashier in Orlando, FL

I have been working at Publix part-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

You get to meet people from all walks of life, share you similarities and your differences, and it you get acquainted with a "neighborhood" of "regulars" from all walks of life, some of which are your friends, some of which are your family, some of which you will meet tomorrow.

Cons

I don't like standing in one place for too long, Cashiering is not the easiest job, but not the toughest, but it has the possibility to take a toll on your back if you don't know the proper stretching techniques and have a good Chiropractor, being able to Coordinate the front gives you the opportunity to move around much more.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Current Employee - Grocery Clerk in Clarksville, TN

    I have been working at Publix part-time

    Pros

    Good starting pay for a grocery store ($2 above minimum wage). Flexible schedule. Very accommodating for time off when needed. Usually as many hours as you want to work (while staying under 40) as long as you play nice with your department manager.

    Cons

    Current department manager is simply there because they have stuck with the company and has no idea how to lead people. Entire store suffers from "wet your pants" syndrome when the regional manager comes in every 3-4 weeks. Completely contradictory rules are enacted when these visits occur. Performance reviews are worthless as far as coaching and mentoring associates towards positions of increased responsibility. They are simply kept low to justify minimum pay increases and keep associates in near dead end positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a good hard look at your department managers and how they got their jobs. I appreciate and respect rewarding tenure with a company but being there a long time doesn't necessarily make someone fit to be a leader.

    Current Employee - Deli Clerk in New Port Richey, FL

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

    Pros

    They have good benefits, and offer a lot to employees. You can adjust your schedule, and basically work the days and hours you want.

    Cons

    The other employees there are not at all friendly. Comments about always hiring people, whispering, and just being yelled at by your fellow employees. Everyone in the Deli is the boss. The manager you never see. If you keep busy, and don't talk, you will be fine.
