    Pros

    Great benefits for full time and salaried, ESOP, flexible schedule, involved in community, opportunities for advancement and continuing education. I enjoyed my time there.

    Cons

    Retail work is hard and long hours, hard on family life, and you have to work holidays.
    I don't have much else to say, trying to make min word count.

    Advice to Management

    Remember what's it like for the new guys working their way up.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule if you change availability.

    Cons

    Unfair discriminatory wages for women (previous work experience taken into account), almost impossible to change departments if you're in the deli, shifts often set less than 8 hours apart (e.g. closing shift to 12am, scheduled at 6am the next day), and usually short staffed (at least my store is), and very hard to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Pay equal wages for the same work, stop scheduling illegally close shifts, put more than 3 workers out for customers in the deli department, and appreciate the work done by hard working employees who put Publix's needs before their own.
