    I have been working at Publix

    Pros

    My training was very descriptive and easy to follow. I can expand in any field if I so desire.

    Cons

    The hours I can work are minimal, so it is very hard to receive full time to be able to really receive all the benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow faithful employees to receive full time positions who need the hours.
