BEST Company I've ever worked for!
Deli Associate (Current Employee) – Santa Rosa Beach, FL – March 18, 2018
Your job begins with an in-person orientation, presented by someone who has been on the front lines of the store. This person sets the stage for the culture you will be entering - and believe me, Publix has a culture all its own! While only *slightly* hoakie, the culture is alive and real, and the associates and managers really buy into it, which is a refreshing change.
Every manager I've encountered, down to the lowest level team leaders, share a servant-leader style which is completely opposite the authoritative and self-serving styles I've seen in every other company I've worked for. Associates are encouraged often and praised for doing well, and corrected appropriately when they make errors.
The benefits the company provides even the rank and file associates are outstanding! VERY competitive salaries, health, dental, vision, life, 401(k), vacations...and STOCK OPTIONS!!! There are cases of employees retiring millionaires from working here! The company really takes care of its employees!
Overall, I can't say enough good things about Publix!
I don't particularly like working in the food service industry...
