    I worked at Publix part-time

    Pros

    Great benefits: health insurance, 401k, stock. Teaches how to manage money quickly. Fun staff. Very clean and professional. Secure.

    Cons

    There is room to grow but promotions aren't being thrown left and right. They want you to be the best at whatever position you're in. There aren't any talks about moving up and even if you thought about it you wouldn't even know where to start.

    Advice to Management

    Talk about more career opportunities. Talk about moving up and other benefits besides insurance, 401ks and stocks.

    I worked at Publix (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay as well as advancement opportunities. The profit sharing program is excellent stocks not as volatile as regular stocks.

    Cons

    Poor routing, long hours and management can be the buddy system. If you're not in the clique you will not advance without lots of luck.

    I worked at Publix (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    profit sharing, and free publix stock after I think 3 years when your fully vested. Fairly competent management, increases in pay can fluctuate depending on state of the economy. All in all a good company with room for advancement to management though the scheduling for hourly associates is horrendous.

    Cons

    depending on dept. if you want management you may have to switch departments in order to move up quicker.

    Advice to Management

    fair compensation always produces good workers, and an encouraging work environment.

    I worked at Publix (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It's a good steady paycheck and you can get benefits if you qualify, and stock! Just follow the rules and excel in customer service. Loved getting any day off I needed, as long as requests are submitted in time.

    Cons

    Physically demanding, standing all day lifting was a strain on my body after 8 years. Hurt my back and knees.

    Advice to Management

    Do not disregard employees suggestions, underappreciate them and over work them.You gave enough money to keep them coming back, but not enough to stay. You will drive them out of the company.
