    I worked at Publix full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Publix is a wonderful company to work for with well-trained leaders and managers. They do regular performance reviews and pay increases if your performance is great. The work environment is positive and the workers are friendly. I worked here for a little over two years and enjoyed my experience. They train employees to be service focused and considerate of their customers.

    Cons

    Very few downsides to mention. The break room could have been more inviting.

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

    Pros

    Publix values its associates very much and managers try their best to accompany any associate needs. Almost all associates are very friendly and one quickly becomes part of the 'Publix family'.

    Cons

    Typical retail job, dealing with customers. What you'd expect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't try to push 2 and 2 so much. Yes, it is a distinguishing factor, but some people do not want their groceries carried out.

    Pros

    Promotes from within from the bottom up, so you can be assured that your managers know their jobs. Flexible with schedules. Friendly.

    Cons

    Very few if you are willing to get up early, show up on time, and work hard. You are expected to show personal growth and remain committed to the company.
