Great part-time job for students

Cashier (Current Employee)
Oviedo, FL

I have been working at Publix part-time for more than 3 years

Prosflexible with time-off for students, ability to cross-train in different departments, great training programs, and the emphasis on customer service rather than the bottom line was refreshing

Consunpredictability of schedule, unless I had very restricted availability it was difficult to predict when I would work
