    Pros

    Publix is very flexible with your hours, starts you off at a base salary higher than minimum wage, you get a raise every six months, the people are very nice.

    Cons

    One of the only downsides i can think of is that it is very hard to move up the ladder,at least in customer service, because there are a lot of employees.

    Pros

    You meet some really great people at Publix, even if a lot of them are only temporary, perhaps you are too. Gives people something to bond over. Due to my work ethic, I was pushed into a role bordering full-time and was offered a path into learning management should I ever return. It was nice to be thought of and recognized for my hard work. And they'll recognize you a lot if you put in the effort

    Cons

    Scheduling was rough as it changed every single week and you only got your schedule 2/3 days before the week started so making plans two weeks out was impossible. Don't let anyone try to tell you that the deli isn't the most involved Publix position.
