Pros

the hours are very flexible for someone with another job or if they are a student. the pay is competitive as well. You wont be able to make that much at most other easy entry level jobs. I have worked for both Publix and Winn-Dixie, they don't even compare. Publix takes care of those that want to work!! If your lazy, you'll stay making minimum wage. If you care and work hard, then you are rewarded with more hours and more pay. Name another retailer that pays there PART-TIMERS 4 retail bonuses and a Christmas bonus, plus vacation time. Don't even get me started on how well they take care of there full time associates. Stop complaining, you can't get everything on a silver platter, some things you have to earn.

Cons

the management is horrible, and advancement is hard to attain

Advice to Management

listen to the lowetr level employess as well as managers

    Pros

    Publix is a great place to work at because it really feels like your part of a family. The people were really great to work with, from cashiers to managers. You get to interact with many different types of people and customers and there is room to advance. I definetely recommend this because it was really fun and rewarding to work here. The pay is decent and you really do feel like your contributing to something worthwhile. I've always loved shopping here but working here is just as rewarding. It was a tgreat experience and I am pleased to have worked there.

    Cons

    The negative aspects that are seen when working at Publix are dealing with negative and stubborn customers who believe they are always right and that you are wrong, when maybe that is not the case. Sometimes you have to deal with agitated customers, and it can be challenging because you want to work everything out calmly without any problems from managemnet or whatever. but overall this is seen at all retail stores and is always going to be around. So the pros defintely outweigh the cons in this situation and reccomend it to anyone interested in customer relations and a great place to work at.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management is doing a terrific job here at Publix. They truly challenge the worker to strive to be the best and make you feel like your work is really having an impact on the entire organization, which it is. Every part of Publix is needed in order to make it what it is today. I am proud to work here and management is partially responsible for this. Management is friendly to all its workers, from the bag people to the higher- ups.

    Pros

    Talking to customer and getting to know their family and it alright with your Manager. Its like a big family that keeps growing and growing . Alsome place to work

    Cons

    The 10 hours shifts it takes up your whole day . When you get home it time to go to bed, and when you wake up you have a hour or two and it off to work again. Your around your co-workers and customers more than your family.

    Advice to Management

    Take it easy on the hour 50hrs a week isn't need 40hrs will be cool we love to see and spend time with are families like you guy do.
