Horrible boss

Im a former employee at Publix at 11200 Tamiami Trail E Unit 2200 Naples, FL 34113 United States. I would like to complain about the manager in charge at Customer service she would talk crap about employees to their coworkers she told one of my employees she would never *** put me to be a cashier cause she doesnt like me quoted from what she said she also mention that she doesnt promote people she doesnt like which is unfair to others who can do great things! She isnt a great boss her name is Victoria Esquivel I hope you see this and something can be done about her there is so much more she has done and opportunities she has took from people and I was literally force to quit cause of the way I got treated. Publix is a great place to work at just not the right people in charge.

User's recommendation: They treat customers great but employees horrible we aren’t slaves!

The funny thing is by posting this you are talking crap about your boss. Most likely you were not promoted because you did not earn one.

Absolutely AMEN

I like how you are claiming the manager talks crap about employees yet you are talking crap about him. Sounds to me like you are not a great employee. Grow up, Complaining about her online is not mature.

You could not have said it better. Also maybe the reason she did not get a promotion was because they are not a team player and like to bash others?

Stale hamburger buns

Publix brand hamburger buns are dry stale and crumbly with 9 days before expiration date. Something is off. Happened more than once.

User's recommendation: Use other brands.

Acknowledge performance of employees

Store number 0475, Citrus Hills Shopping Center, 2685 N. Forest Ridge Blvd, Hernando, Florida 34442. I just want to acknowledge the fine work that all the employees of our local store are doing (and have been doing) since this Covid-19 pandemic hit our country. They have gone well above the call of duty in keeping us safe and still supplying the excellent service we are use to having in our Publix stores. In my opinion each and everyone of them are hero's. Thank you again and God bless. William C. Geick, CMSgt. USAF (Ret.) wgeick@***.com

User's recommendation: Keep supporting Publix by shopping there.

Critique of Customer Service

Actually, I wanted to let you know how good I think your organization is. The place is clean always. The people who work there are super. I do have a couple of minor suggestions which I am certain are covered in your training. When you ask customers if they would like groceries carried to your car. DO NOT INSIST. Ask once and that is it. Second, checkers should try to avoid comments on what people are buying.

Non-mask wearing in a Publix store in a Florida Publix store in Watercolor on rte 395

We live in the Panhandle area of Florida -- Santa Rosa Beach, FL not far from 30A and Watercolor. I have shopped Publix stores since 1973 in Miami, FL and consider Publix the best food store of any other. HOWEVER, relatives are visiting who lived in Watercolor for 10 years and went into the Publix store on 395 to shop. NOT ONE CLERK OR EVEN THE MANAGER wore a mask. SHOCKING to see that during the Covid-19 pandemic. We shop at a Publix on Grand Boulevard in Santa Rosa Beach and ALL the clerks wear masks. How could the store on 395 be so irresponsible as to not enforce the wearing of masks? Something should be done about this to ensure the quality reputation of ALL PUBLIX stores and employees. Sincerely, Ms. Wally Edelson Santa Rosa Beach, FL

Thanksgiving Dinner

Publix - Thanksgiving Dinner

Publix - Thanksgiving Dinner
Publix - Thanksgiving Dinner
We ordered a Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner to be picked up the Wednesday morning before Thanksgiving. This was to be a turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, marshmallow delight and a cranberry-orange relish. This was a nearly $40 price. The morning when we went to pick it up, my husband took forever to come back to the car as our daughter and I waited for him. What we got was DELI turkey meat as they CLAIMED they didn't have enough turkeys! We got green bean casserole as they CLAIMED they didn't have enough of the marshmallow delight. It was a TAKE it or LEAVE it attitude. We ALREADY paid. Then the people even forgot to give us the huge platter container of mashed potatoes. They made my husband wait AGAIN so they could give us the mashed potatoes. They BLAMED it all on Covid-19 saying that the turkeys they got were too small. No discount, no response to the complaint, nothing. This was our first time ever ordering a turkey dinner and it is most definitely the last time we ever trust Publix with that type of thing. A lot of upset elderly people expecting turkey, we felt bad even though we did nothing wrong.

User's recommendation: Don't pay ahead, examine everything and request them to write out the changes.

Tough and tasteless

every time my wife buys steaks at publix (barclay ave. IN SPRING HILL FL. they are tough and tasteless no matter how she cooks them. and believe me she is a great cook. it doesnt matter what cut of steak they are tough and tasteless. publix used have great steaks but that is past tense, also their chicken breasts are tough and tasteless as well (look up woody breast) some thing has changed in the quality of their meat.

User's recommendation: i'm going to try winn/ dixie and see if there is a difference.

High Prices

I can not believe the price of milk for example at Publix $4.29 a gallon I can get it for less then $3.00 down the road at Walmart and $2.60 at Costco!!!! They also never put it on sale!!! That is just one rip off price!!!!

User's recommendation: Go Elsewhere.

Shopping not a pleasure?

First berries on sale and got charged full price. Bought boho aluminum pan but only had one. Had to go to service but several people in line. Wore my Vietnam hat today but did not think that Veterans Day. Guess have to ask fir it. Did not get it. Not big but Publix has disappointed me last three visits. I spend a lot of $$$there.

User's recommendation: Check close before you go to Publix.

Complaint

I have had to shop at Publix for 9 years now because there is no competition here in Florida. This is by far the worst grocery store to shop in. The prices are triple what we were used to paying in NJ. The management is terrible, nothing but lip service. When there is a sale, you have to buy 2 (BOGO). No more rain checks either. What really gets my goat is when you check out and they ask "did you find everything you were looking for?" Well, it's too late by then, isn't it? And when they start wheeling your cart out, I'm more than capable and that just *** me off. I stopped eating cold cuts because you spend so much time waiting for the slow pokes to get to you. Not worth the wait or the price. It never gets better, only worse.
