    Pros

    Good benefits if you can wait to work 1500 hrs. A well known respected employer in the southeast.

    Cons

    Unprofessional managers who are promoted only because they've been there a long time. Publix should consider hiring managers with MBA's or those with good people skills. It's hard work stocking.

    Advice to Management

    Speak to customers. Isn't that the rule? Create a positive work environment by complimenting more than criticizing an associate.
