Publix cashiers have to sweep and mop around theri registers at the end of their shift.
Cashier and Aprons Meal Clerk (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – March 15, 2018
A typical work day as a cashier would be working a shift from 3 to 9 or 4 to 10. They do not like to give cashiers over 25 hours a week. They would rather hire 2 people for the 40 hours available. Even if you do not need insurance due to being covered by a spouse, Publix will still only give about 25 hours maximum per week. Publix only gave 30 minute lunch breaks. I learned that if I stayed around long enough that I may eventually become a Customer Service Manager full time. I learned that full time employees actually earn a lot of Publix stock. I also learned that each time Publix opens a store, it is already paid for in full. ( no debt) It was extreme to ask cashiers to go outside and get buggies on cold days. It was also unexpected in the job function to have cashiers wipe down the steering wheel and seats of the huge, toddler carts. Also at the end of each scheduled shift, each cashier has to sweep and mop around their entire register. It would be more efficient to have another person who was hired as a stock person or bagging groceries employee to do all of the registers at the end of the night. There are NO employee discounts at all. It is because they want as much money as possible going back in to the store for stock concerning the full time employees. The hardest part of the job for cashier was the shift always changed. The most enjoyable part of the job was taking care of the regular customers who were so pleasant.
You can buy things on sale as soon as you get off work.
Publix does not like to have 40 hour a week/ full time cashiers.
