Publix is an awesome company to work for.There are some pros and cons as there are to any company. In the long run you can make lots of money and have a decent retirement.
I am a manager and I love what I do but I also do wonder sometimes if it is worth it to work the long grueling hours. It is a lot of pressure to work in all parts of publix whether managerment or not. It's like a giant balancing act. It tends to make you hate the holidays because the customers get nasty and are hard to please and really have no patience.
Some also know that they can work the system so they an get free products. I know not only myself but other managers feel they have no life and miss lots of important time with their families. It is hard when you have associates that do not do their work and your left holding the bag when they drop the ball. You really feel you spend all your time at work.
You can't *** on holidays like the 4th of july mlk day labor day and so on but the corporate office is always closed.
They continue to pay low wages to the many people who work and they work them as hard as they can. It really is management that makes the money but is it worth the price?
