    Publix truly is a great place to work! Very deserving of its place on the 100 Best Companies to work for (Fortune).

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Lakeland, FL (US)

    ProsCompetitive compensation and benefits. Managers that care about their employees professionally and personally. Financially stable. No layoffs. Stock! Free lunch for support, warehouse, manufacturing associates. Opportunity to advance career into many different paths.

    ConsSometimes it can take a while to get promoted. This is mainly because it's such a great company that associates turn jobs into careers and work 30, 40, 50 years.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Publix rocks!

    Cashier (Current Employee) Tampa, FL (US)

    ProsPublix really cares about its associates as well as customers. They're very fair and committed to being the very best grocery store offering excellent service.

    ConsEver-changing schedule each week. No consistency with work schedules.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCalm down when the higher-ups are coming for a visit. If the store is run the right way, there should be no panic attacks when the bosses show up.

    My favorite job

    Cake Decorator (Former Employee) Kissimmee, FL (US)

    ProsWonderful benefits for employees. You literally own a piece of the company because they give you shares of stock. Great people! Can easily move up in the company.

    ConsCustomer is always right and unfortunately you will follow rules the company provides however if the customer insists on having a manager come they override and give them what they want. Ends up making you feel stupid.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be so quick to give in to customer complaints, maybe lying thieving customers are worth losing over making your employees look stupid.
