    I have been working at Publix part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Helps gain customer service and speech skills. The co-workers are professional and friendly, and more than willing to help out when a new hire comes along. The starting pay rates are great, and there are many benefits for both part time and full time employees. There are plenty of opportunities for advancement, raises, and learning new skills. You can even work in different departments, depending on what you decide, over time.

    Cons

    Customers can be rude, no discounts on company products.

    I have been working at Publix part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee owned, Indestructible industry, good to college students, Happy employees=Happy customers, Clean stores, Little perks even for part-time employees (free item every month), Employee appreciation days, Cross-training, Raises every evaluation

    Cons

    Pay is low but it beats working at another grocery store for the same wage. Some of the cons are obvious: rude customers, nights and weekends, monotonous work, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was really lucky in my experience with Publix. I even received a tuition reimbursement for just working two days a week.

    Pros

    Family oriented company, privately owned, great benefits, wonderful co-worker, 6 month rasies, holiday bonuses, retail bonuses, flexible scheduling.
