    I worked at Publix

    Pros

    Publix has loyal customers, they are satisfied. Publix treats employers well. They have a great name and have top customer service.

    Cons

    Like any retail environment, they are many personalities. If you get the last shift, you can leave after 12am. This can be tough with a family life

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!

    I worked at Publix

    Pros

    Great company to move up the ladder with. They reward their employees with ceremonies & bonus. There are friendly store managers & district managers.

    Cons

    Hard to manage work & home life. I wish they wouldn't make us throw out perfectly good food. That food that could go to the homeless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    U need to ask your employees what the management could change.

    Pros

    Bi-annual raises, full benefits (health, dental, 401k), regular bonuses, friendly work atmosphere.

    Low starting wage (though better than Wal-Mart or Winn Dixie), can be a little rough as some people don't take it seriously.
