    I worked at Publix part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Flexible hours for college students. Incredible customer service skills taught.

    Cons

    The pay wasn't the best and there isn't an employee discount, but the stock given is way better.

    Advice to Management

    Interact and engage with the employees that you manage. It makes the work environment a better place for everyone.

    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.
