    I have been working at Publix full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a job, Non-management employees are great people to work with.

    Cons

    Over stressed or incompetent management in the stores, along with an out of touch Home office leads to a frustrating work experience.

    Advice to Management

    Work your stores, an 3 hour visit once a year while your being guarded by the store manager is wholly insufficient. Make an unannounced visit after bankers hours and see how things change.
