Motor Driver (Former Employee) – Lakeland, FL – January 25, 2016
Worked at Publix for 13 years. Held positions as selector, sanitation worker, warehouse man, order checker, and motor driver. Recent policies have changed the atmosphere of the company but it is still good work. Good benefits.
warehouse person (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – December 19, 2015
Overall this job was ok I worked there as a warehouse person for one year the pay was ok but average management treat the selectors with more respect then other workers the only good thing about this company was the free lunch and my awesome coworkers benefits were also great but not better then some jobs my coworkers were all good people it was just like another job you work 12 hours a day four days a week then clock out nothing special and not some place for a long term career.. But if you like cleaning dirty bathroom toilets mopping in freezing cold and fearing that you'll get fired then go right for it
Quality Control (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – October 9, 2015
Great place to work with some supportive managers. Rewards for working and being safe. Like all big companies there is politics and red tape to deal with, but that's expected. The most enjoyable part, finding the position that fits you best!
free shirts, lunches and other items for being safe
Freezer Selector (Former Employee) – Deerfield Beach, FL – October 7, 2015
One of the best companies i have ever worked for. I have considered going back as well but time wont allow me. Anyone in pursuit of a promising career but does not really know what they want to do. Get with publix and grow from there.
Forklift operator (Former Employee) – Miami,FL. – October 2, 2015
We Put-away or Replenish a typical day at work, learned to work at a fast pace moving pallets here and there, Love working with Management and also my co-workers. the hardest part of the job was easy as in doing my job and what I enjoy most is when work is done for the day.
Arrive on time and start my day. Prep food,clean area and cook then serve the warehouse at dinner time making sure they got what they needed. Management was alright for the most part. My co-workers was a joy and handful at times but overall I enjoyed working with them. The best part of the day was hearing the workers say the food was good. I think the hardest part was not having all the ingredients to work with. The best part was ending the day knowing you did your best.
fast paced forklift work . long hours in a refrigerated warehouse. high productivity. concentration to detail and quality of keeping products fresh and in good condition and working in a safe environment.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Boynton Beach, FL – May 24, 2015
My typical day will be coming to the warehouse with my uniform on with my steel toe boots, also signing in with the company on paper to let them know im here and what time I arrive also all the employees will huddle up and we will do a stretch when we will be finish with that we will jump on are forklift operator and get to work put a sign on the truck mirror and chop the wheels and some loads will be a two men truck or a one man truck so the dock manager will decide what truck he wants us to do so I will go into the 18 wheeler with my forklift and take it off the truck and break it down to how publix wants it.
Typical day starts off receiving orders and unloading packages from trucks. I learned how to Maintain a clean work environment by cleaning and maintain equipment used for unloading and loading the inventory. Also, fulfilled orders for drivers and loaded or unloaded trucks daily by hand, two wheeler or pallet jack if one was available or needed. Management pretty much walked around if workers were not working at the pace they wanted. Co-workers were let go and hired just as fast as the work day was over. We all started off as temps until we could get hired on to the job if you were good at your craft or position. The hardest part was trying to get everyone on the same page because it was all about team work. The most enjoyable part was working together to get the work done. As long as everybody was working together the job was going to get done on time.
Throughout this job I learned a large amount of knowledge about warehouse work and in turn I learned that it was something that I want to do for the rest of my life. I greatly enjoy the hard work and the knowledge that Publix placed into my brain, it is something that I will always have in my mind.
