    I worked at Publix

    Pros

    Publix has loyal customers, they are satisfied. Publix treats employers well. They have a great name and have top customer service.

    Cons

    Like any retail environment, they are many personalities. If you get the last shift, you can leave after 12am. This can be tough with a family life

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!

    Current Employee - Stock Clerk in Hialeah, FL

    I have been working at Publix part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, get to meet good people depending on your store, different job opportunities available

    Cons

    The people may not be so great depending on your store, pay is not all that great, expect to have hours cut often but be expected to work more than you can work with, overstaffed positions (especially with those within the company for over 10 years) preventing any chance of moving up unless you change stores, corporate completely out of touch with how things work in stores and how every store is different, new policies every few months when higher ups change

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Benefits and making friends/family alone will not help keep employees. Part timers shouldn't be expected to handle full time jobs if they're not being offered the positions.

    I worked at Publix part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Solid company, excellent fresh products, customer friendly

    Cons

    Public image and actual environment are very different. Has become the typical corporation, no longer family oriented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making so many rules and allow the employees to do their jobs for you. You'll be the same millionaires but you'll have happier employees.

    I have been working at Publix

    Pros

    Benefits are great, time off is great, and associates are usually friendly.

    Cons

    Management is lazy 99% of the time except if a big boss from corporate is coming to the store. They put all the heat on the customer service staffs, never take responsibility for anything and you have to kiss butt if you even want to think about moving up. They act like this is a really difficult job that only some people can do when in reality it's easy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value those who actually work hard. Create an enjoyable work environment. Stop being lazy.
