Publix - I have 12 years experience in grocery retail mostly produce. I applied, after 2 months I was contacted by a product manager about a position with 25-30 hours weekly. I was offered $8 an hour.
I explained that I would need little training to work both produce and floral depts. as I have 12+ years experience in retail grocery in both of these depts.
as well as other depts. I did not expect full time at first but I did expect more than $8 an hour. For this money and hours they will get teens that have few responsibilities, wont work nights weekends, will be late and not dependable, wont last long and must be trained. It must get expensive to keep training employees that don't last because of too little pay.
At this rate this company will go in the red quickly just like Winn Dixie. Since this is how Publix wants to treat applicants, how will it treat customers in the future.
