I worked at Publix part-time

Pros

Opportunity to grow, if you know how to network and show off what you offer. Manager pay is excellent and competitive.

Cons

Networking is required and is a lot based on connections. Backing off reliance for networking for advancement would be good.

    Pros

    Depending on your manager, they work well with your schedule. The stock advantages and 401k are great benefits and the only reason I continue to work there.

    Cons

    They tend to be too concerned with certain areas that should not matter; such as: someone's shoe having a spec of dirt; however, they are not concerned enough when they promote people who treat their fellow employees like they are worth nothing.

    The pay is next to awful. I have been there nearly 9 years and make $11.60.

    They value the employees who go above and beyond to look good in front of management, but treat others disrespectfully, but the employees who actually have the customer's best interest at heart, go above and beyond for others and expect no recognition, and love others are overlooked each and everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees fairly, promote those who truly deserve it, look past the facade of those who are only in it to make a name for themselves, value those who truly work hard, and pay your employees more!

    I worked at Publix part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked with lots of fun people. Customers were great most of the time. Always something to do.

    Cons

    Managers give you a look of death if you have to leave early when your child is ill and has to go to the ER. They WILL ask you if anyone else can take your child to the ER. What a joke!!

    Managers give you issues if you call out because you are ill. They basically give you an attitude over the phone and act like it's the end of the world.

    The "ROI" process is a complete and utter JOKE. I tried to get a position in the bakery for almost FIVE YEARS and no one said anything, even though my name was put on a piece of paper and it was taped to the WALL in the BREAK ROOM where MANAGERS were a lot of the time.

    People who DO NOT fill out the ROI form get the positions in the departments. Example: a girl waltzed right in the bakery and started decorating cakes, when I filled out the ROI form several times over my 4.5 years at Publix and they didn't do crap.

    Some store managers think it's okay to talk down to their employees and treat them like they are dumb.

    Forced "mandatory" United Way meetings at 5 AM. You WILL be grilled if you don't show up.

    People who can only work part time only get to work ONE DAY per week at times. They will also cut your hours if you call out of work.

    If you attend church or know someone in the company that is higher up, that is the ONLY WAY you will EVER get promoted. Someone I know is NOT a Christian and they refuse to promote her, even though her test scores are higher than average to get a management position.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your associates like humans. Don't get ticked off if their CHILD is sick and has to go to the HOSPITAL. GET OVER IT!!!!

    Look at the ROI forms so those who want to work in other departments get to do so.

    Just because someone doesn't attend church or doesn't know the right people doesn't mean you can refuse to give them a management position, even though their test scores are extremely high. THAT IS DISCRIMINATION!
