Pros

The company is family owned & prides itself on keeping strong family values. It provides proper training to ensure less turnover & safety measures are followed to prevent accidents. Publix sets a high standard of excellence to stay a cut above the competition. There are many opportunities for advancement.

Cons

You have to be flexible with hours in order to work as a team to provide the best customer service possible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Managers should be paid more because of the added level of duties that are placed on them.

    I worked at Publix part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Competitive pay if you've been there for a while, flexible hours IF you're part-time, closed on Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas as of right now.

    Cons

    Benefits are definitely not what they're cracked up to be. Health insurance is lousy, and vision/dental plans are very limited. "Good ol' boy" mentality at the corporate level is extremely negative for store-level associates.

    I have been working at Publix part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can make quite a bit of income as a younger individual working through school, or as someone without a formal education (yet). Plenty of stock option to buy which will actually yield subsidiary income, as well as I took advantage of the tuition reimbursement program offered to students.

    Cons

    -Long, long hours. Sometimes with schedule conflicts, especially as a student they do not find sufficient reasoning with alternative reasons and get frustrated.
    -Micro-management. Constantly receiving feedback, and are going for a very controlled environment, managers are becoming less personable.
    -Most work occurs during night, or afternoon hours. This is when people do their shopping, hence the need for a larger workforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more personable, and have stronger connections with your employees.
