    I worked at Publix part-time

    Pros

    Benefits and bonus for full time employees

    Cons

    They begin with the publix spirit but the higher up in management the less the positive spirit exists. Many corrupt managers. In recentyears the benefits and great company standards decreased.

    Advice to Management

    Improve your attitudes and go back to benefits as they were in 2002

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

    Pros

    pay is decent for retail

    Cons

    hours are crazy --part timers expected to do "clopening " shifts ( close then open )
    no 10 min breaks like other retailers, just meal breaks that you clock out for

    Advice to Management

    give people a break, sometimes they need to sit down for a minute, have a drink and snack go to bathroom. not just at off the clock meal times
