    I worked at Publix (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Biggest bonus was the benefits. Cafeteria, Stock, health, dental, vision, prescriptions, 401k, you name it. Even discounts on other items/services through corporate discounts. The credit union.

    Cons

    none really that i can think of

    Advice to Management

    Don't over look someone due to lack of "certifications" or Degrees. Pieces of paper don't mean the experience.

    I have been working at Publix part-time

    Pros

    Great place to work as a student. I've been here for more than 4 years and it has been the best experience. I've learned how to interact with people on a completely different level. I totally recommend working here as a first job.

    Cons

    There really aren't any cons, Publix is a place about treating each other as family. Publix's mission is to treat all customers with respect.

    Advice to Management

    Management can get a little too strict or even power hunger. Publix is fine the way it is I don't really like when management establishes its own rules. Rules that don't necessary follow the companies mission

    I have been working at Publix full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are outstanding! Plenty of opportunities for growth and development. Great teamwork and attitude, Publix employees the best so there are lots of like minded people working toward one goal.

    Cons

    It was told to me before I was hired that "if you take care of your customers and treat them like royalty then you will do great at Publix", but that is not the case in the grocery department. I have been accused several times of "wasting time" looking for something in the back room for a customer, or needing to focus more on the cart I'm working to be done faster. I started shopping at Publix because my wife was looking for something that was empty on the shelf and an associate offered to look in the back for it, he came out a few minutes later and gave her what she needed. I believe that kind of care and service is worth it!

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the basics of what Mr. George founded his great company on! The grocery department gets too focused on how productive you are, and forgets that our customers are Kings and Queens. If we need to focus on stocking instead of customers then why not just have overnight/ early morning stock crews?

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Positive environment! Company takes cares of their employees well. The customer service is a big deal for this company. That is why they do great. Stock is also amazing here.

    Cons

    Sometimes you cannot get enough hours. You should make sure that all employees put in the same effort towards their job. If not, you will end up doing most of the work.

    Advice to Management

    With so many employees it is hard to keep an eye on everyone. Management should watch out for bullying and the lazy employees so the others don't leave the business.
