    I worked at Publix part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with. With a lot of hard work and patience the advancement opportunities are plentiful. Very clear and defined procedures and expectations. Promote from within the company.

    Cons

    With such publix saturation it can take years and years to advance to a desired position. The management team can vary greatly from store to store.

    Advice to Management

    Agree on a common practice and expectation personally. Give honest insight to employees about the length of time promotions could take.


  6. Customer service cashier

    Pros

    There are great benefits like stock shares and raises every 6 months if you do your job well. They are also pretty good about accepting your requests for time off if you turn it in within the proper amount of time.

    Cons

    Obviously there are going to be some rude customers and people you don't really like working with. Also, with this Publix, hours have been a little low b/c of the many hires.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't have the space for someone then you shouldn't hire them.

    Pros

    Publix is a friendly and positive environment in which to work.

    Cons

    The position of cashier is part time and according to the store manager will remain as part time.

    Advice to Management

    Allow cashiers to become full time personnel.

    I have been working at Publix part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    After completing application and assessment via in-store computer, I was called in for an interview. I was treated very well and with respect. I was then called in for a second interview with the Assistant Store Manager who was also very friendly and respectful. There were no "gotcha" questions and the only real question I was asked was, "Why Publix?" I was offered the job during the second interview at a higher rate than I have expected. Afterwards, I went back to the meat department and the employees there congratulated me and welcomed me enthusiastically.

    Cons

    I haven't yet started at this time. They have orientation on Saturday's only and they are awaiting the drug test and background screening results.

    Advice to Management

    I like the way I was treated during the interview. Keep up the positive and encouraging "vibe."
