Great First Job!

Cashier (Former Employee)
Sarasota, FL (US)

I worked at Publix part-time for more than 5 years

ProsFlexible hours, plenty of co-workers where you can always find someone to get along with. Good benefits and pay is raised at a decent amount throughout your career there.

ConsManagers can be 50/50. Tasks can be monotonous sometimes and you find yourself in the same rut staring at the clock.

Advice to Senior ManagementKepp doing what your doing!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at Publix part-time

ProsPublix offers many benefits and flexible hours to its employees. You form relationships with your customers and coworkers. It can be a pretty good work environment.

ConsYou do get the disgruntled customer every once in a while, but that's the grocery business for you.

Better than most

bakery utility (Current Employee)
Viera, FL (US)

I have been working at Publix part-time for less than a year

ProsCo-workers are always nice and the environment of the store is always uplifting because of the high standards of cleanliness and customer service .

ConsHours are ridiculous. They work you everyday but consider you part time so you do not get full time benefits. Not flexible with schedule changing.
