    Pros

    Publix is a great place to work. They are very flexible with hours, and they have great benefits for long-term employees.

    Cons

    It takes a long time for promotions. It is based on how long you are with the company and not based on how good you are at your position.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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