I have been working at Publix part-time (More than a year)
Publix is a great company to grow with and they offer so many benefits. Personally I think it's a great first job or college job. They work around your schedule and there's several opportunities to move up for hard workers.
Fellow coworkers aren't as easy to get along with. No team efforts and management doesn't always have your back when enforcing ground rules that they set.
Advice to Management
Practice the "team" efforts that you preach
I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Publix in June 2017.
If you want to be noticed by the managers at Publix, you must consistent. Before you apply, go to the customer service desk and ask for the hiring manager. Tell him/her a little about yourself and why you're looking to work at publix. To improve the chances of you being hired, ask them what positions they are trying to fill or spots that may be open, then apply for those specific jobs. Thank the manager for taking some of their time to speak with you and that you're hopeful to hear from them soon. 1-2 days after you've applied it is important to follow up, concerning the status of your job application. Ask to speak the same manager you did, to show initiative. I had followed up 4-5 times, mostly over the phone, once in person. It may feel like you're being annoying, but it really shows the manager that you really want the job. I was eventually given an interview. For the interview: figure out as much as you can about the company; customer value is the core of the business. Be very respectful, professional and vocal. Be prepared to answer simple questions about the company and yourself. At the end of the interview I met with the store manager and I was hired on the spot. I'm also 17 years old.
