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

    Pros

    good pay for a teenager

    Cons

    My first day on the job I was beiing trained by a fellow bagger. I was told, :It's not that hard", and shown how to bag one thing before he abandoned me. My training at Publix basically consisted of me messing up because I wasn't trained and the managers screamng at me in front of customers. When my first month meeting occurred (after only my first 2 weeks), I was looked down on because i want to become a nurse, not work at Publix forever. One week, i was told by one manager I was doing a wonderful job. The next week i was told that other employees were complaining about me. I was told this in front of a customer and it was very embarassing.When I work 4 hours, i am told I have to take an hour break! So, I only get paid for 3 hours. I turned in my notice today and no one cared! Whenever i called the hotline, I was told this was not their problem.

    I worked at Publix part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Flexible hours if you are a student
    - Reasonable enough pay, not the best if you are depending solely on it
    - Some people are nice to talk to
    - Cashier/bagger work is relatively simple, not too complicated if you are at the lower levels of experience
    - Raises are available
    - Requested time-off is often granted if you have a good reason

    Cons

    - Manager was rude and unprofessional, as well as other staff
    - Have to stand the whole time with only a thirty minute break in the middle of your shift
    - You are constantly being monitored and micromanaged
    - Customers feel entitled without cause and are extremely rude

    Advice to Management

    Have respect for your employees. If you honestly don't know what that entails, please look it up. Treat them like people and don't let customers run all over them or you could be losing a great employee.
