    Difficulty getting regular hours or a regular schedule wreaks havoc on family life, no discount on Publix brand products (or any discount at all on purchases made at Publix)

    Pros

    Very friendly work environment, fellow employees made the shifts fly by. Some managers are rude and unfriendly, others are amazing. Has opportunity to get promoted if you work hard. FREE shares for every $xx.xx you make which can add up over time.

    Cons

    Just like most other large corporations it is a set in stone promotion path, there is no variation, no change. If you want a job where you can start at the bottom and work your way up building an empire that doesn't belong to you it's great. If you have spirit and you want to create something of your own, use it as a start up job and leave when you can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember to be respectful, being a manager does not make you better than anyone that works below you. It just makes you responsible for more. Act accordingly.

    I worked at Publix full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    One of the best things about the company is that its stock is not publicly traded. Instead, employees have the option of purchasing stock individually and in their 401K. In addition, the company actually gives the employees stock annually based on the number of hours the employee worked. It only requires five years of continuous employment to become vested in the company, which allows you to retain all stock purchased and given by the company. There are also opportunities for advancement in all departments except the pharmacy.

    Cons

    As with any retail setting, one of the drawbacks is having to work late shifts, weekends, and many holidays. Many times managers are required to run departments without adequate staffing in order to fulfill corporate's requirement to cut hours in order to save money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pharmacy technicians should have some incentive to stay with the company. There is currently no way for them to move up and their salary cap is not competitive with other retail pharmacy settings.

    Pros

    Company benefits are really good.

    Cons

    Often times the management cares more about the random customers than the people who put their blood, sweat, and tears into the main parts of everyday business. I felt indifferent about leaving. constant influx of managers
