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

    Pros

    Great benefits, promotes from within, works with your schedule if you're hourly, they really try to take care of their employees, organized

    Cons

    I was just an hourly but I know managers were working around 60 hours. It seems like salaried people get taken advantage of as is common in retail.

    I have been working at Publix part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a lot of room to grow at Publix. Managers are always pushing you to do your best and want to help you succeed. Everyone(mostly) who works at Publix has the same values; friendly, kind and humble. Going into work everyday is not as much of a chore.

    Cons

    Only con would be that Publix is growing VERY FAST. Managers can change stores quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, and keep Publix's values strong.

    I worked at Publix part-time

    Pros

    Great environment to meet new people, challenge your customer service skills. $.25 Increase during every 6 months of evaluation.

    Cons

    Management changes too frequently, your evaluation is a bit difficult to raise up especially if management and supervisors rate you on their opinion.

    Seniority counts as far as fulltimers and not many fulltime positions accessible because of the waiting list and could be years in one position even if you are seeking change, unless you know someone and receive favor!

    Benefits are accessible ONLY when worked a certain amount of hours which can be tough because considering extenuating circumstances you can change around your schedule...

    Advice to Management

    Create an effective system to train Customer service clerks as well as: ensure that employees are working to fullest capacity and greeting EVERYONE with courtesy.

    Pros

    Benefits to many different places and companies other than Publix, good wages, raise every 6 months (every evaluation depending on score)

    Cons

    Hard to get promoted, managers choose favorites and promote them first

    Advice to Management

    Watch employees more/better, because evaluations are not accurate
