Approves of CEO

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

Pros

My job is demanding but extremely rewarding in the end. I finally have a job where I can talk to people about football and get payed for it.

Cons

My job requires a lot of work before I leave home and before I get payed every thursday. Sundays have been a nightmare to me and I am sure the holidays are no exception.

Advice to Management

I have no advice because the management just needs to keep doing what they think is best.

    I have been working at Publix part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great stock interests and decent bonuses depending on the store.

    Cons

    Promotions are very dependent on whether certain managers like you the most and not based on dedication and hard work.


  2. "Management doesn't care for employees. Good opportunity if you retire with them, though."

    Advice to Management

    Care. If someone has a back injury, get them immediately to see a physician - don't just offer a back brace. Be loyal. If someone has put in the time and they desire to move up into management, invest in them and move them up. *Don't constantly hold someones job over their head - encourage them into doing a good job and if they don't, let them go. Crying wolf or playing 20 strikes, you're out doesn't help anyone.

    On a personal note, I came everyday on time (mostly early), clean shaved and ready to work for my first 90 days. one day I was told that I had a little stubble so I apologized and went home to shave on my lunch break (even though I had shaved the night before and looked completely smooth). When I was offered the job, the GM promised me a 50 cent raise after the first 90 days. When my evaluation came up, they gave me a 10 cent raise because I was unkempt one day! Needless to say it was a huge slap in the face.
