    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Powder Springs, Cobb, GA

    I worked at Publix part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I started off with a good pay for just graduating high school. Shifts were easy to give/take.

    Cons

    Weekends were a must for me a lot of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was promoted to Customer Service Representative after I turned the legal working age. Just working diligently made the management want to promote me. I did not get a raise for this, but the pay cap is increased for customer service reps.

    Former Employee - Front Service Clerk in Atlanta, GA
    Former Employee - Front Service Clerk in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Publix part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Connecting to customers is the best part of this company, and it is so focused on the company experience if you have a issue and need to get a resolution just say it is for the customer and they will figure it out. I love that. Part time employees do not get any of the amazing benefits that the full time employees do (which are awesome)

    Cons

    Good training for job, poor management typically, varied workloads, part-time culture feels disposable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help bridge the gap between lower level management (Customer Service Staff, Team leaders, etc) and their teams. If the staff feel like that their doing is meaningless they end up only doing it half right. Communication to why things should be done a certain way is key!
