    Pros

    Employee owned and invested people.

    Pros

    Publix has a great culture. The management wants to groom people who are willing to step up and take on more responsibility and are flexible about where they can live.

    Same challenges as with any other company. Finding and keeping good employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay aware, but not involved. No fraternizing!

    I have been working at Publix part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Publix has a firm and stable foundation. They are more secure in employment availability than most places.

    Cons

    The employees have to work really hard and there pay is not as generous as other. Corporate is really out of touch with what goes on the store level. They think that all store run the same way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give better raises;pay your employees a little bit more. A lot of associates are struggling to pay their bills even though they are working 40 hours a week.

    I have been working at Publix part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    if you work at a good location you'll get a legitimate publix experience. your coworkers truly start to feel like family. management is fair but will always push you to do better.

    Cons

    if you work at a bad location it can feel kinda corporate. more will be expected of you than many different stores. you have to be willing to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't lose that "like family" feeling with your associates no matter their job tittle. that sort of compassion transfers to the customers.
