Good job and good work environment.

Indeed Featured review

Publix is an awesome company. The work was not hard. The customers are primarily nice. Some managers do have a God complex though. They really take the manager title to heart and can be very annoying and belittling.

Pay and management

If you are thinking of working at Publix part time and trying to make it a career well, unfortunately you 9 times out of 10 will be passed up for substantial enough raises, the hours you are scheduled are so inconsistent (for reference im in college and work part time with open availability) you could be scheduled 25 hrs (or more if you are lucky enough) and then randomly get hit with a 3-8 hours in total the next week. Management always plays favorites despite people who’ve been here longer get stuff done so if you work at Publix every single day 24/7 never call out, and work from 6/7 am to close then maybe just maybe you’ll have decent enough pay for part time work and consistent enough hours. The minimum role of Cashier/Customer service is 13.00 I have been with the company 3 yrs, 2 of which I was promoted to cashier and only make 13,40. If you want to work here I’d reconsider and have a few other job prospects lined up.

Great place to work people there are really friendly but the management just seems a bit weird. You have to be almost perfect in order to get full-time.

The company has truly embraced it's mission statement

I started at an early age. Publix quickly became my extended family. It was truly a great experience. You felt like you were a part of something great. Over time the focus was more corporate directed. Understandably so. Still a great experience. Many long-term relationships from working with publix. Thank you for the opportunity.


Can be fun. Learn how to quickly help customers. Develop your own style.


Sometimes long hours.

Not the best place to work at times

It's a decent job but it's a very stressful and toxic environment at times. I've had great managers that care and want to make sure you're happy. Then I've had managers that talk to you like they own you. It kinda sucks that they move management around because I feel like there is a lot more bad managers than good.

Great Company!

Publix cares about their associates and it shows! I only left them for graduating college and not being able to pursue my new career there. It’s an opportunity I’ll always cherish.

First time working nd it has been very rewarding. Management and supervisors have been very helpful during the training encourage employees to ask questions and help when necessary. They reward you by letting you know younare doing a good job.

Good for high school job

Helped get me money throughout high school. Lots of turnover so always working with new people. Management was somewhat rough at times, but they were always changing and being moved around. Overall good experience

Publix is well-known for being a productive company that truly cares for its employees. They make sure their staff has the right training so they can do their best at work. Publix also offers good pay and benefits to help support their team. They have an open-door policy, meaning employees can easily talk to managers about any ideas or concerns. The company also has a program to help employees who might be dealing with personal problems. Plus, Publix understands that everyone has a life outside of work, so they try to offer flexible schedules. This way, Publix creates a positive work environment where employees feel valued, which makes the company even more productive. Overall, Publix shows that a company can be successful while still taking good care of its people.

It’s okay

I say it’s a great job for starters like minors or people who really want to go up in the company. Favoritism is a big in this company, but it’s not surprising because it tends to be a thing in most big corporations. It’s not terrible, but it’s not good either. It’s not what it used to be,

Part Time = Not Many Benefits

If you are looking for a second job or have an incredibly busy schedule, then Publix part time is pretty good, the pay is low and hours can vary severely so if you're looking for consistent weekly pay then this is not for you


They work to your hours

Productive and fun place

Good company Low pay

Publix is a great company to work for but if you don’t work meat department expect to make no money. Raise the wages and it would be a better place to work at


Good management, clean stores


Low pay

Going Downhill

The pay is good and the coworkers are friendly but the upper management has completely dismantled the values and ethics of the company. The district manager will lie to employees to get them to advance only to move them hours away when he agreed to keep them close by. Hours have been reduced down to below optimal acceptability which causes the entire store to run on a skeleton crew and forces everyone to struggle to keep up. I'm in my seventh year of employment and the quality of the company has significantly decreased in the past four years.


good pay, good benefits


No flexibility
