Stop the favoritism that constantly occurs. Also, give hours to competent, reliable, and hardworking employees. Publix is horrendous about giving new hires and minors hours in an abundance. However, even if you open your schedule wide open, if you’re not with the in crowd, you don’t receive hours. The lack of leadership, critical thinking, and accountability is where Publix truly is above the competition.
1. Bad managers.
2. favoritism for promotions.
3. if you are a stock clerk you must run the store with two more associates.
4. Fancy and face personalities.
5. If you work at deli you will be mainly a janitor that likes cooking and making sandwishes.
6. Arrogant attitude from above down.
7. the culture is to be arrogant to grow.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make Publix a better place to work?
I would start by fireing Todd the current CEO who allowed employee bonuses to be takeen away and doubled manager bonuses...then he cut the employees insurance.(I had to drive a county over to find an in network docter after the changes).... Managers need to be accountable for their actions. I saw managers cuss out employees and nothing happened to them.I saw a store manager harass disabled people until they quit simply cuz he didn't want them working in his store...my manager kicked up at the seafood or cuz it was angry one day and knocked over the seafood clerk and nothing happened to him.I want they called in sick and the store manager and my manager called me 15 times within 5 minutes. These are problems that need to be addressed managers need to be accountable for their actions
Went to hiring event talked to 2 department heads that afternoon got a call to meet for a job offer the next day. Got a lowball offer for Part Time and turned it down.
Since I was a minor the only question they asked me was why I wanted too work there and about what I do in school and things like that.
How long does the process of drug screening and back ground check take, and follow up for people who went through the interview and were sent to screening? Still waiting no response from Publix yet even though follow-up call was done.
I took my interview on Monday. I received a job offer and was called for a drug test and background check later that same day, but i wasn’t able to come back to the store until Wednesday evening. I got my results back the Wednesday after that and went in and filled out paperwork on Friday. I would say the whole process is a little over a week.
Listen to employees when they complain about a manager, especially when more than one employee are having the same issues of abuse.
