This morning a cashier asked for a donation for the children .she said.to me this is as bad as panhandling ok. then when i said no she says to me thank you very much in a sarcastic attitude.

If publix is training their employees to be rude and unprofessional this is wrong,remember people are in there to spend their hard earned money not to donate it or get scorned if you don't donate. this is a bad way to do business.also using children as pawns for bringing money in.these CEO'S need to think of who is # 1 that is the consumer and quit putting pressure on their employees to collect money.

As you open your pockets for yet another natural disaster or Christmas season, keep these facts in mind when "donating". Marsha J.

Evans, President and CEO of the American Red Cross... Salary for year was $651,957 plus expenses. (That's $74.42 an hour for EVERY hour of EVERY day.)

Brian Gallagher, President of the United Way receives a $375,000 base salary, plus numerous expense benefits. (That's $42.80 an hour for EVERY hour of EVERY day.)

UNICEF CEO receives $1,200,000 per year plus all expenses and a ROLLS ROYCE car where ever he goes and only cents of your dollar goes to the cause.

(That's $1369.86 an hour for EVERY hour of EVERY day.)

The Salvation Army's Commissioner Todd Bassett receives a salary of only $13,000 per year (plus housing) for managing this $2 billion dollar organization .

No further comment necessary except listen for the bells outside stores this Christmas. Please share this with everyone you can think of.

I like to donate to the Salvation Army and Samaritan’s Purse—they don’t have bureaucracies or red tape between you and the person in need. Obviously, the others are filling their own pockets.How much do you make a year?

:roll :eek :? :x

Ladies and gentleman,

Let get some things straight, for those of you who feel harassed just because the cashier is doing her job, I say please realize that whatever you have going on in your lives is causing you to be irritable, explosive, and judgemental. Really! Your going to get upset over a simple yes or no question and then blame it on Publix.

For the disgruntled employees, obviously the same goes for you. If you do not like what you do for a living, quit and find something else to do. You were hired to do a specific job. I find it hilarious when people complain about their job but do nothing to further their education or go for something that they will enjoy. They are usually lazy and feel entitled.

Publix is one of the top supermarkets in the country and is continuously expanding and giving back to the community. Let's stop blaming Publix for what is wrong in your life.

I usually just say "No Thank you." Who knows where that "donated" money is really going? Plus, you have to keep a bunch of *** receipts in order to get a tax deduction-what a hassle.

I have my own charities I give to, I don't need to be pressured to "donate" at every store I use-who needs it? Publix needs to knock the guilting off, it's wrong.

Excellent ! I'm a current publix employee and I 100% agree!! I think it's ridiculous my managers harass me n the other cashiers to collect donations. They ride us to collect so they can get a bonus for having the store with the most money collected. Whereas we won't even get a thanks just a "collect more... You're not selling enough!" N it's like, HELLO I'm not selling anything how can I control if someone donates or not?!

On top if that, I knoww it annoys the customers to get badgered for a donation a lot of ppl I can tell feel put on the spot... And it must really irritate the customers who shop at Publix a couple times a week to be asked 4x a week....

At my publix, the managers actually get on the store intercom (whatever it's called lol) n harass us to sell that way. They'll say our names then 'food for sharing!!' Or whatever the cause is at that time.

They also walk by n say the same things n ask 3 times a shift what we've "sold".

This next time around ill ask how much money the manager w the top earning/collecting store gets.. Ha if I get fired *** it :)

Publix managers do not get any type of bonus for the store that sells the highest dollar amount. What that store does for the community is the reward.

I know this because I am a manager at Publix and I have also work with non profits and United Way organizations. If you are that unhappy with your job you should leave. Publix is very involve within the community and partnering schools. Publix donates millions of dollars a year to help support the United way, Special Olympics, Children's Miracle network and March of Dimes.

These are very respectable organizations. I wonder if you are complaining when Publix gives you a bonus every quarter or Publix stock for doing your job??

@Publix manager

TO PUBLIX MANAGER: The stores do in fact get recognition for donations that they harrass the cashiers to collect from customers while you sit on your *** and do nothing. Most of the organizations that you promote donate very little to the actual cause.

You can look on the computer and do a little research and see that the CEO'S of these companies make over 600,000 a year and usually are given many benefits such as a mercedes to drive. March of Dimes only donates a dime for every $1.00 donated. United Way is another one that takes a huge chunk for themselves. Publix always wants to look good and claim that they are always helping the community but when I needed some help for my kid years back, our claim was denied.

I spoke to BCBS that told me the decision had come from corporate and when I called corporate even though I had a letter of medical necessity from a neurologist, they basically told me to bad, they were not helping pay the bill. Such a great company! As long as you look good to the community. Why don't you pull money out of your own bonus and give to these charities.

I personally give to St. Jude and others of my choice. I was tired of my being harrassed working for Publix when I did not wish to contribute to some of these organizations that are greety. So, why don't you stop bothering your cashiers and workers to donate money every week out of their paychecks, especially when peope at Publix have not seen a cost of living increase in years.

Publix does not care about anyone especially their hourly employees.

Publix..... actually I do give to this charities and to three others.

I give over 100.00 a week because I have been homeless and needed help at one time. When I need help when I was physically abused, homeless and needed counseling I got it. So I do give back probably more than a lot of other people. So until you know the person you shouldn't be rude and negative because you don't know what they have been through.

At my location we don't bother my cashiers at all everyone does it because they want to

My store also goes and volunteers at different boys and girls club, lighthouse for the blind, and abuse shelters every month. There are some people that like doing good. And for sitting on my *** maybe you guys do up in Georgia but down here in Tampa we don't.

I work just as hard as my associates because I wouldn't ever ask them to do something I wouldnt.

I do like doing good, however when my child needed help, Publix did nothing to help. I had to deal with an arrogant *** from corporate that had no compassion for my situation.

So, it is very good of you that you have your people go to shelters and help those in need, however I will be damned if I give to charities that care about themselves and then Publix gets a big tax break and make themselves look good. That might be their purpose for hiring you to make themselves look good. I am glad you are doing good but Publix has a motive for every move they make. They do not care about the general population of their employees and they would take food off your families table in a split second if they could get away with it.

I love to do good and I do give to many charities but I do my research before I give and I certainly do not need to give in honor of Publix and having the cashier bust my chops everytime I walk through the line asking for a donation. George Jenkins was the man that made Publix a good company years ago. Unfortunately, with his passing came the passing of working for a good company and a lot of greed. You are talking to someone who had decades of time with Publix and I know how it was in the good old days.

I heard about a manager from Deerfield and it sounds like you might be that person and he did not care about the hourly employees and sent them home before their time was up not caring about their needs for money and family.
