I have worked for Publix for7 years 4 of them were as an asst.deli manager.In the 4 years I tested for deli manager once a year and had high passes and was denied promotion. Just 2 stores away a younger girl with only 1 year as an asst.deli manager gets an instore promotion while i was working there so she could have her weeks vacation.
What a slap in the face!!!!!! So when I get there I work as hard as ever because that position was not filled yet. 1week of correcting all things that were wrong in the deli, shining ever so brightly so I thought.During the week an afro-american came to me with concerns of racial slurs made to her, I immediatly went to the store manager to help with this issue, I did what I thought was right for the associate.Well now friday is here and its time for me to return back to my store really believing I was finally got the promotion,and it was over.
I went to bat for an associate and her rights and i was wrong cause thats not the way Publix and politics.Needless to say "IF YOU DON'T PLAY,YOU PAY." I worked for Publix for another 6 months and was treated so badly that I walked away after 7 years. And today 2 months later my associates still call me and complain to me how they are be treated with no respect and no dignity.
