    Great place for a first job, they treat you like family. Flexible hours for students and after working there for a while you have the option to purchase Publix stock.

    Pros

    Pay is good, and the job is easy and simple. bag, get cart, say hi to customer, and clean a little.

    Cons

    Part time is part time, dont expect hours of full time possibilities any time soon

    Dont expect baggers to be cashiers, if youre not willing to update their pay immediately.

    Pros

    The benefits are great and management is usually pretty flexible with hours (I am a student and they always work around my schedule).

    Cons

    Hours... If working nights and weekends doesn't bother you, than you wouldn't mind the hours. I wasn't a fan of working all different hours.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to encourage your employees and point out when they have done something well... a nice compliment can go a long way.

    Pros

    If management is your goal, Publix provides the training for you to excel in your chosen field. They have flexible work hours for part-timers and if you decide to stay be it as a part-timer or as full-timer, the benefits are the best. You have stock options, 401K, health insurance (part timer 1500 hours per year) dental and vision insurance.

    Cons

    Managers are often too busy to train new hires, leaving the teaching to other associates who were badly trained when they started. Its a catch 22. No one associate is working off the same page and there is no accountability, no consequences for your actions or lack there of.

    Advice to Management

    As a part time time employee in the Deli and knowing how stressful a day can be at a busy store, management should be fair with both full time and part time employees each having the same duties such as kitchen during the day and night, getting the truck, putting merchandise out, doing production for the day and being on the counter. We should all be doing the same work and the counter not relegated to part timers. Be fair and impartial. Listen to complaints or gripes with an open mind and get back to those who gripe or complain with feedback.
