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

    Pros

    Good co-workers; some of my closest friends I met while working. Never feel bored or lack of tasks. The managers are patient and understanding. They emphasize heavily the importance of every associate getting a break.

    Cons

    The focus on associate retention has resulted in their retaining associates that are not up to the quality the company professes to prefer. Upward mobility is virtually nonexistent. It requires years on the job to finally move up or get full-time.

    Pros

    Base pay really well due to experience, flexible hours if part time, hour lunches most times, some actually like their job, easy work , fast paced

    I worked at Publix part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company cares about its employees and are flexible with their hours to accommodate your needs (Ex: School schedule). They also have tuition reimbursement programs.

    Cons

    Don't always get as many hours as you would like due to part-time hour rules. Full-time status is not easily achieved, as most of those positions are given to management and senior citizens.
