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

    Pros

    Really great company to start off your employment career. Things are ran very professionally and there are protocols for everything. Great benefits if you work full time and they do a lot for the community (5K runs for charity). It allows coworkers to bond outside of work too.

    Cons

    If you're a cashier, standing for six hours straight on your little foot mat can really take a toll on the feet and back. Also, no discounts, just once a month you get a coupon for one free item. Publix should really award their employees better with discounts on groceries or something.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, no real complaints.

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

    Pros

    The labor is easy enough to account for the inevitably high turnover rate.

    Cons

    The Board of Executives hates workers' rights, management is usually condescending, and the experience is depression-inducing.

    I have been working at Publix full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Publix has great benefits such as the Esop program, 401k, health insurance. Very well on location. Met most of my best friends working there.

    Cons

    Watching lazy management in there habitat. Taking people from doing their current job to do something they can do themselves, but don't. Constantly being told to show ownership in the company but failed to themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Just because of a promotion, that doesn't mean that you forget where you started from. It takes a team, not tyranny to succeed. Customers are important, but so are associates. Keep them in mind, happy, give them something good to fight for, and they will keep customers happy.

    I worked at Publix full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Reasonable Benefits for large family. Not going out of business anytime soon. CEO gets a 50% pay increase while the real people that do the work struggle.

    Cons

    Used to be a much better place to work. Hated to see it go down hill over the last 3-4 years.

    Learn to help customers and fellow associates to find products; help new associates while they learn--keep it positive. Make lasting friendships; and learn something different; change your life.

    Cons

    I loved my job, especially in helping customers to their car and unloading their groceries. Cons: Bad weather.

    Advice to Management

    Train want-to-be managers to treat their employees with the same respect they want to be treated with.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, friendly co-workers (for the most part), flexible schedule for part timers. Publix will take you on a successful ride if you're willing to put in the time.

    Cons

    Mean customers, long hours, monotonous work. Doing the same customer service job for 5-10 years in the hopes of being promoted isn't for everyone

    Advice to Management

    Try to focus more on good things employees do. Sometimes I feel like my genuine effort to be friendly is taken for granted.
