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

    Pros

    Friendly Enviroment, Flexible Hours, Opportunity to grow in career, Health Benifits, Stock. If you choose to leave as long as you are on good terms you can return after 30 days, they are also closed on major holidays

    Cons

    They give those who break the rules (stealing time, stealing product, etc) too many chances. They also do not have dedicated positions to put up product in departments other than grocery. All bakery/deli/meat associates are responsible for their own frozen truck

    Advice to Management

    I honestly have no advice to give to the management. I absolutely love my job and my store. If anything, it would be to hire more employees to stores that are struggling and to be looser on hours with stores that are short staffed
