Publix is not what it used to be
Assistant Pharmacy Manager (Former Employee) –  Franklin, TNSeptember 25, 2017
I have many friends (co-workers) that have all left Publix shortly after I did 8 years ago. The unreal demands placed on retail pharmacist's time have really taken away from the appeal of this job. Little to no time is spent with the patient. For a while, Publix was a better retail pharmacy to work for, then it became like everyone else.
Pros
good company
Cons
pharmacy management makes this job completely undesirable

customer service (Former Employee) –  Conyers, GASeptember 25, 2017
Working for Publix isn't bad as long as you have a good working environment. I've worked with awful co-workers and managers. It's fast pace and slow pace working environment depending on the day of the week and the time of day. You start a minimum wage or can get paid by experience.
Pros
Get benefits
Cons
Get paid minimum wage

Customer Service Staff (Current Employee) –  Palm Bay, FLSeptember 24, 2017
Publix is a good company to work for with great benefits, stock ownership, and overall friendly work environment. You must have great people skills and the ability to NOT take things personally (from customers' complaints, etc.). Publix is very structured and family oriented. I believe it is over all a good company to work for!

Media & Community Relations Specialist (Former Employee) –  Marietta, GASeptember 24, 2017
Not much in way of advancement other than store level. if you want more corporate careers, none are offered in the Atlanta area. The store level is good sometime can be hard to move up. It depends on the manager.
Pros
Great company with good benefits
Cons
Only advancement at store level

Cashier (Current Employee) –  Apopka, FLSeptember 24, 2017
The people you work with start to feel like family. There is always a chance to move up in the company. You get raises every 6 months, as long as you do well on your evaluation.

Grocery Replenishment Specialist (Current Employee) –  Anderson, SCSeptember 24, 2017
On an average day you mostly complete the same task repeatedly until you leave depending on your job class. Management is made up of people who moved up through the company so they are understanding of any problems you may come across and are generally patient.
Pros
Good Management
Cons
Takes a few years to make decent money as a career choice

BAKERY CLERK (Current Employee) –  FloridaSeptember 22, 2017
Publix is a great company to work for! Working for Publix I learned that the customer's needs always come first. That providing premiere service and making a customer happy is what really keeps the business afloat. Co-workers and management are always pleasant, and a work family bond is truly present. Management are always open to working with and around your schedule for school, appointments, family matters, and other jobs. It is a joy to work for Publix.
