I worked at Publix part-time (less than a year)

Pros

- Flexible hours if you are a student
- Reasonable enough pay, not the best if you are depending solely on it
- Some people are nice to talk to
- Cashier/bagger work is relatively simple, not too complicated if you are at the lower levels of experience
- Raises are available
- Requested time-off is often granted if you have a good reason

Cons

- Manager was rude and unprofessional, as well as other staff
- Have to stand the whole time with only a thirty minute break in the middle of your shift
- You are constantly being monitored and micromanaged
- Customers feel entitled without cause and are extremely rude

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have respect for your employees. If you honestly don't know what that entails, please look it up. Treat them like people and don't let customers run all over them or you could be losing a great employee.

    I have been working at Publix part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Inside work, 20% of management are pretty good people. good level of contact with customers. excellent deli product quality. good ambiance atmosphere.

    Cons

    80% of mgt is extremely immature in the area of spreading and listening to gossip, and very much into favoritism or prejudice towards at least 1/4 of employee's. Not real at all in their actions towards most employee's. they let bad things constantly happen and really do not treat employee's as they should. 99.999999% do they ever compliment an employee, but quick to make condescending remarks and bad attitudes towards us. they have no idea how bad lower end mgt. treat associates....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    they need to hire BS degree or higher and the reason i say this most who have at least that level of degree have some responsibility in their life. when you promote from within a lot got to their level by favoritism and not by good mgt. skills. upper mgt in lakeland needs to make all mgt levels learn people skills and communication skills...most top mgt in retail in the USA got their jobs because they have a heart for people. most in publix stores DO NOT HAVE A HEART...

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

    Pros

    Publix stock, so many places to grow/transfer to, most people are great, pay is ok,

    Cons

    Small misunderstandings should be coached and used as a learning tool, not an opportunity to fire a 5+ year associate with consistently exceeds marks on reviews. Beware, you are not as safe in your position as you may think, I don't care how great of an associate you are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your associates in the IT area on a more personal level. We are people, with families and needs, not just someone you can dump out on the streets.
