    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 have been working at Publix full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They will work with you. If you need certain time off its not that big a deal. After 10 years of employment your stock starts growing fast.

    Cons

    Assistant and Managers are put threw the ringer. Pay raises are too low and really don't seem to be based on merit for management or associates.

    Advice to Management

    Get more full time help and quit hiring unqualified people.
