I worked at Publix full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Positive environment, friendly coworkers and opportunities to work overtime during the summer.

Cons

Publix promotes from within, rewarding the loyal instead of the hard workers. Overworked

Advice to Management

Consider promoting based on performance rather than seniority. I worked alongside inventory stockers with college degrees and worked under managers with GEDs.

    I worked at Publix full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay bonuses vary dependent on store location and sales
    Benefits good

    Cons

    Company changed from the time hired to the time I left. They spew family importance until an employee has a family issue and needs time. Company dictates, does not manage and you must conform to survive. Many management members are under-educated bullies. Complain and even though they say there is an open door policy, be prepared for retaliation.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the employees, and lower management, they have some good ideas and should be listened to and heard. The culture has changed and not for the better. Everyone is always looking over their shoulder. It once was a good place to work and should try to recapture that, but company has gotten so big I do not believe they care about their people, just about profits.

    Pros

    - Fun people to work with.
    - Easy task assignments.
    - Flexible schedules.

    Cons

    - Managers switch around a lot.
    - Some Manager are on major power trips.

    - Sometimes not enough people on task to complete service for customers.
    - Customer interaction can be rough at times.

    Advice to Management

    Try and lean back on your employees a little bit, sometimes it is frustrating to be pushed around because you aren't on the top of the totem pole.
