    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
