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

    Pros

    Staff is very friendly and caring. Everyone pitches including the managers. I like the fact that the managers will help you when needed. I have never felt like I could not go to them with a problem.

    Cons

    Shift changes are hard. Standing all day can kill your feet too. Some customers are not nice and you can't say anything which can be hard as well.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see more incentives for employees. I also think that the sick or call out policy needs to be revamped. It is hard not to get sick when you around the public but if you are sick you shouldn't be penalized for calling out either. I would like better mats on the floor for those who stand constantly. Moving helps but when you stand all day in one spot it just kills your feet. Pay could be better too. Other business are paying more.
