I worked at Publix part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Met some very interesting people. Had "regular customers," who appreciated my work and knew me by name. Countless times would people come up to me in public and recognize me from work. No set schedules so everyone gets to have random weekends off.

Cons

Some of the customers and managment would ruin your day. When you get a bad manager, or two, or three in the same store, it makes you want to pull your hair out. Most of the people (except for those trying to make a career out of it) have been there 5-20 years and get lazy, including management.

Advice to Management

Treat your job like you did the first week you started. Try to actually CARE about your staff, instead of just focusing on their mistakes. Motivate. Captivate. Don't insinuate.

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

    Pros

    You get to meet people from all walks of life, share you similarities and your differences, and it you get acquainted with a "neighborhood" of "regulars" from all walks of life, some of which are your friends, some of which are your family, some of which you will meet tomorrow.

    Cons

    I don't like standing in one place for too long, Cashiering is not the easiest job, but not the toughest, but it has the possibility to take a toll on your back if you don't know the proper stretching techniques and have a good Chiropractor, being able to Coordinate the front gives you the opportunity to move around much more.

    Advice to Management

    YOU meet managers from all walks of live.


  2. "Good for what it is"

    I worked at Publix part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good management, positive company culture, accommodating of needed time off (part-time), good co-worker.

    Cons

    It's a grocery store. Look, Publix is good for what it is. You can only expect so much when working at a grocery store. At my store, the management was good, the store was well run, and I liked most of my co-workers. Several of the employees had come to Publix after working at Kroger and talked about how much better Publix was. The worst thing about the job is the work itself.
