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

    Pros

    Its a job. It pays some of my bills. It is more upscale than walmart. I get to work in a freezer during the summer which is nice.

    Cons

    The management likes to get away with anything that will save them money. If you work more than 40 hours they will edit your timecard so that you only worked 40. On top of that, my work schedule is close one night and open the next day. Very inconsistent schedule.

    "While its similar to many other grocery store jobs, Publix is a company worth being with."

    Pros

    No matter what location I worked at, you meet amazing people. Some young high school kids who are working their first jobs, or middle age folks who need some extra income. I think they try to hire nice people, because having bad coworker experiences was a rarity. I still keep in touch with friends I met on the job.

    Cons

    One of my managers told me once that "One thing Publix doesn't do great is they'll never tell you when you do something right". I found this to be true. If you do your job great, you probably wont hear about it. An awesome manager might say something, but its not likely. If you need work on something, they will quickly correct it. I never had to many problems with it, but it would have been nice to get some positive reinforcement on the really hectic days.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your employees! Many at my level were either high school or college students, really working hard. It would have made work a little better if we were told some good things from time to time.
