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

Pros

Publix aims to hire the best, so they offer a stellar benefits package, education program, and many opportunities for advancement. They hire managers from within, and they outline a path for you to follow to achieve advancement, if you want it. Because of their efforts to be the best, they have an excellent reputation in the community, so customers are nicer, and more appreciative than they are in other businesses I've worked in. The managers I've worked with are very fair and reasonable. The work environment is very clean, friendly, and familial.

Cons

I don't see this as a con, but many do. You will work hard for your money. The work is fast paced, and sometimes difficult.

Advice to Management

Continue to be accessible to your employees.

    I have been working at Publix part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Super Easy
    - Most of the people who get hired here are friendly
    - If you are a student, Publix will work with you and around your schedule
    - Publix has never laid off their employees
    - You have to really, really mess up to be fired

    Cons

    - Some mangers are micro-managers
    - If you request a day off or you take off because of illness, it sometimes feels like management punish you the next week by giving you less hours.
    - Some customers are not so pleasant, but thats expected in customer service jobs.
    - You don't have a set schedule so you're always working different days and times from week to week.
    - Very hard to get full-time for those who want it.
    - It is impossible to get a job here, unless you know someone already working at the store you want to work at.

    Advice to Management

    Some managers need to stop socializing with their fellow managers and "favorites" all the time. Also, don't have "favorites". It's really unfair of them to treat employees differently. For example, talking to a favorite cashier for twenty minutes but if you say something to a fellow co-worker for less than a minute they yell at you to get carts or stand at the front of your register and then go back to chatting with their buddy about weddings or football. This mostly applies to coordinators and customer service staff, however I have seen customer service managers doing this as well.


  2. "Good entry level job."

    I have been working at Publix part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Helps gain customer service and speech skills. Meet alot of new people, make friends, sometimes even family. Keeps you busy if you were previously out of work.

    Cons

    Customers can often be abusive. Pay is low, descent raises are hard to come by. Management too often overlooks talented workers. Too many politics with advancement.

    Advice to Management

    When you have staff that are creating more business for you and keep the customers coming, show them the same amount of effort when they want to advance.
