    It truly is like a 2nd family. Benefits are great!

    I have been working at Publix part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    there are multiple departments to become trained in, there is an emphasis on taking care of each and every customer to the absolute highest of your ability, and most of the people employed are like minded and are easy to not only work with but get along with.

    Cons

    there is a slow process of promotion and training in most occasions, in the part time position there can be a lack of stability in hours as well as sporadic hours in which you work on a day to day basis.
