    I have been working at Publix part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of hours to offer with a consistent workflow throughout each day. The benefits are outstanding.

    Cons

    Long hours, back-to-back shifts with sometimes very little time to rest between shifts. Can be difficult to maintain a healthy work and life balance with the set hours that take up the majority of each day.
    Not all employees promoted to management positions offer the time and effort to effectively train their employees throughout the department, often relying on subordinate hourly employees to train others instead.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that all employees are receiving adequate training from their immediate supervisors with at least ten hours to rest between closing and opening shifts.
