    I have been working at Publix full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    the bonuses are a help in our pay that is not much , health benefits are great, stores are clean sometimes

    Cons

    I have been sad how this company has been running lately. I have been working for this company for about a year and a half now. The reason why i went to work for them cause it was told to be one of the best supermarkets to work for. Its far from it. I have seen major changes being made in the past year for the worst. i have been cutting meat for 20 years now and is the only thing i have been doing since i was 18. i worked with different company in my years as a meat cutter and have seen the best and the worst. When companies start to run there store like this its because there are money promblems or the managment has no clue what there doing. First thing they have done is cut hours down to nothing. When i first starting working there was 15 people working in my dept.. Now there is 8. we as a dept. went up in sales $30,000 a week. so instead of giveing us more help they cut ours hours and took away over time. Another thing i hate there is no set hours . Everyday and week its different you have no time with family or friends. my family always ask me why im never home and i only work 40 hours a week. This is becasue one day its 8am-5pm then the next its 10am-7pm then the next day its 2:30-11:30 , then 9-6 then 11am-8pm. Every week is different and days off you dont know if your coming or going ,what time your going in and never have a set life ...your life is all over the place. On top of it all, they pay you so little i cant even shop in my own store i only can shop at walmart.So when customers ask me question about products we sell i can even answer them because i dont make enough to buy anything in my store . Very sad. i make as much money as i did when i was a meat wrapper in high school 20 years ago and im not kidding. Every since i started here i have brought nothing but the best meat in town and customers will back me up with that i have raised the gross profit up thousands of dollars and sales 10s of thousands $ a week. When our manager walks our store we get nothing but negative feed back nothing is ever positive, He knows nothing about our store at all . All he does is say negative things when our department is the top five dept out of a 100. This is because of me and our new meat manager. they tell us that we have to do these things that make no sense n take so much time that we dont have because we have no time to do it. even if we did still doesnt make sense to what we do every day in cutting meat. Its like there trying to fix something thats not broke. these people are making rules that never picked up a knife in there life but knows everything.......really!!!! and we wonder why our country is going down hill.. nobodies knows how to do there jobs anymore ... its because its not how much you know its who u know. So we have people doing jobs that have no right to even be in there position and there telling people what to do that never in life even did there job.. so to some it all up its like where playing a base ball game with no third baseman or left field or even a catcher and the coach is yelling at you . YOU BETTER WIN THIS GAME OR YOUR KICKED OFF THE TEAM. But coach im pitching the ball and running up and trying to catch it . Duh we are going to lose know matter how good we are. You ever wounder why every supermarket closes there doors soon or later . Well its because these people start to run it n they start to lose all the good people. And there goes another company down the drain and another person on the unemployment line

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    know more about your job and your employees jobs before trying to manage your employees ... and stop trying to fix things that arent broke. if something is working dont try to fix it cause thats when it really breaks

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

    Pros

    Free stock (1) every $400 pay on your income.

    Cons

    Not enough training at all levels.
    Communication is horrible.
    Managers are unprepared and just know to give in for customers.
    Totally careless about employees and life work balance between employees and business needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please ask for better training. You have so much you can learn from what's out there!
    If you don't want to feel miserable and mistreated by customers due to lack of knowledge and want to be more self dependent and not have to depend so much on your Asst. store mangers and Store managers make it happen and the company will be forever thankful.
    Help us make publix a better place to work.
