    Pros

    It's a great job with lots of nice people, great benefit and wonderful pay.

    Cons

    Getting full time is quite difficult and you can't do it as a cashier. The hours you work change every week and when there short handed on employees period you may not get the days off you would like. There is no policy on customer to employee harassment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to be more of a I study structure on the employee hours a week and number of employees in certain departments in the store. As well as protecting your employees more I know customers are the heart of the business but when they harass your employees I don't think that is acceptable.

    Pros

    Good Company to work for. Decent benefits if you stay with the company but not much more than minimum wage if it's temporary.

    Cons

    No real complaints. I was never on the corporate side so I can't speak to that. But I liked my managers and they treated me fairly so all in all a good experience.

    It's almost impossible to make a living at Publix they severely limit the number of hours you can work and the pay is very limited, though you do get bonuses as you move forward and gain more skills.
