    Pressure to get more work done in less time.

    Pros

    The atmosphere was always upbeat and positive. Management truly cared for their employees and went out of their on occasion to help out. There are also plenty of opportunities to advance your career within the company. Many members of store management began their careers with Publix in a part time role and worked their way up to their current position.

    Cons

    Sometimes find yourself spending long days doing repetitive work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what your doing. There is a reason why Publix is always mentioned as one of the best places to work!

    Pros

    Publix is a great place to work at because it really feels like your part of a family. The people were really great to work with, from cashiers to managers. You get to interact with many different types of people and customers and there is room to advance. I definetely recommend this because it was really fun and rewarding to work here. The pay is decent and you really do feel like your contributing to something worthwhile. I've always loved shopping here but working here is just as rewarding. It was a tgreat experience and I am pleased to have worked there.

    Cons

    The negative aspects that are seen when working at Publix are dealing with negative and stubborn customers who believe they are always right and that you are wrong, when maybe that is not the case. Sometimes you have to deal with agitated customers, and it can be challenging because you want to work everything out calmly without any problems from managemnet or whatever. but overall this is seen at all retail stores and is always going to be around. So the pros defintely outweigh the cons in this situation and reccomend it to anyone interested in customer relations and a great place to work at.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management is doing a terrific job here at Publix. They truly challenge the worker to strive to be the best and make you feel like your work is really having an impact on the entire organization, which it is. Every part of Publix is needed in order to make it what it is today. I am proud to work here and management is partially responsible for this. Management is friendly to all its workers, from the bag people to the higher- ups.

    Pros

    Very Good Pay - You are compensated well for the job you perform. Great Opportunity for Advancement - It is easy to move up in the company's ranks, even at a young age. Overall Good - Benefits are very good and there are few things wrong with the employer.

    Cons

    Some incompetent management - Some managers are incompetent and I do not have faith in them. On the other hand, I have had some great managers who will do everything to help me succeed. Some poor hiring decisions for your co-workers - Sometimes, as in every job, the hiring decisions are poor and you have to make up for their laziness.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
