Pros

you get a good amount of hours-i was in high school and on two varsity sports teams while working there and still received a good 20+ hours per week.

Cons

They expect you to have a huge grin (not exaggerating) on your face while bringing in grocery carts in 90+ weather.

Very picky about bathroom cleanup.

I once had to call out because I was in the hospital and I was yelled at and hung up on. I spent the next hour crying.

I was once screamed at by a manager because a can of tuna wasn't pulled up-I wasn't even the one who was supposed to be leveling that night-I was on a register until closing.

Advice to Management

Be appreciative of the hard work that people do.

    Pros

    Very supportive management. They want you not only to succeed but to make a career of Publix weather in the stores or corporate.

    Cons

    Publix is a career not a job regaurdless of possition. They expect the job to be your main priority and family life can sometimes take a back seat.

    Advice to Management

    Management is very supportive and willing to assist to make employees better. I would like to see more accountability for some of the staff.

    Pros

    decent benefits are available, but health insurance is rather pricey--$450/wk for family coverage. the stock plan is very good: they give you shares of stock in the company just for working there. they give out bonuses yearly, but they are very small for non-management personnel

    Cons

    there is a HUGE discrepency between management pay/bonuses and non-management pay/bonuses. managers receive minimal training on effective management techniques. management could really care less about employees family/personal needs, but this is common in retail and food service industries.

    Advice to Management

    please try to narrow the huge gap between management and non-management salary/bonuses/benefits. coach your department managers to praise employees for jobs well done. be more flexible with shift assignments.
