    Pros

    Great environment and with a little determination, you always have an opportunity to move up. Great place to work and always fun!

    Cons

    The only bad thing is that it might take a little bit to be promoted. Once you reach higher levels, it could take a while. Thats my only complaint.

    Advice to Management

    Management seems deserving. I do not have a lot to comment on. Management is very good and does their job very well.

    I have been working at Publix part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Extremely flexible scheduling, easy work, competitive pay to comparable positions, and employee stock options.

    Cons

    Management sometimes doesn't seem to care about you unless you're full-time, doesn't have a very effective screening method for hiring new employees, management likes to play favorites, treated like a child most of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all your part-time employees like adults and allow them to do the tasks at hand without micro-managing, screen your new hires better, and crack down on crappy employees.

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, good management, good hours. This is one of the better first time jobs I think most people could have. Work environment is very professional and clean compared to fast food places.

    Cons

    Sometimes rude customers. The work isn't always the easiest but it's well rewarded through a positive work environment that supports its employees. I think Publix is best known for its great management and employees.

    Advice to Management

    I would try to ensure that employees can grow with the company. Turn more part time employees into full time employees. Don't schedule employees on the wrong days. Put more cashiers on registers when the store gets busy.

    I worked at Publix full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are a lot of better jobs elsewhere.

    Cons

    Management. Young inexperienced management that have no clue what they are doing. They lie to support each other's incompetence. They treat employees badly. I would not recommend working for Publix to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all managers and hire outsiders to clean up the mess before it's too late. Turnover is high because your management, well you get the point.

    Pros

    Publix is a great place to shop. Good company. Good profit margins. Stock seems to be going good. Very considerate supervisors

    Cons

    This company needs to invest more in their technology to make it more profitable in the pharmacy department. I guess it shows they are a grocery store first and foremost

    Advice to Management

    Invest resources in pharmacy
