A couple of things. I work in a bakery dept as a cake decorator. It's great that men are now allowed to grow beards, but anyone should be allowed to color their hair whatever color they wish. Its 2019, seriously. A majority of our customer base has 'unnaturally dyed' hair, so why cant we?
Instead of writing someone up for getting 3 minutes of overtime, how about you notice how short staffed your dept is and allow people a set limit on overtime, and if they go over it, then discipline. But dont have someone work over on a super busy day( every Saturday) and then have them cut the overtime during the week. If they worked it, they deserve it.
You need to be on the same page as your assistant managers. Even if you hate each other, its confusing and not helpful to have two different bosses who are telling you different things and talk poorly about each other behind their backs. You are supposed to be a team.
Training. Training. Training. Stop thinking that our jobs are a sink nor swim situation cause the CBTs cover everything. They dont. People who just start need guidance as well as CBTs.

It was an awful experience. They were 20 minutes late for the interview, and the person who was supposed to interview me did not. It was passed off to another person and she was mad because she had to interview me. She blew it off and had no interest in interviewing me and then she told me she definitely would call me back in three or four days. I never heard back. I will never shop at Publix again.

The only question I was asked is if I thought I could do the job. The interviewer had no interest in interviewing me. The interview was pawned off on another person, and the person who was doing the interview was mad and took it out on me.

I don't have problem fast pace working place. My problem if I don't have good teamwork. Some workers hanging around with other workers and ignored the customers. That's the only problem.

Great people and supervisors care about your safety, my boss helps me itno my rubber apron and breathing mask before using chemicals at night, the mask covers my mouth and nose and the hood wraps around my head then zips from the top of my head to the back of my neck and buckles the belt around my neck, its somewhat uncomfy but i know its for safety and not to many bosses have cared in the past. great uniforms and great pay with wonderful people who care, cleaning dumpsters at night is grose but hey if you like to work and do everything your boss ask you to do things work out great wherever you are. mmm humm
