Owner? Yeah right!

I work at Publix also and I'm on a Workers Comp case and they treat me like dirt. They give me less and less hours trying to force me to quit so I will settle the case. They are literally a billion dollar a year business and they want me to settle a back injury that I...

Not only are Publix's prices entirely out of control, but treatment of the customers are a joke, and not a funny one at that ! Publix is a liberal, greedy capitalist company ...Their managers - most of which are obese/grossly overweight - are AS PHONY AS A 3-DOLLAR BILL !

When a customer has a question or complaint, they "yes" one to death in less then five minutes, lie to your face and immediately indicate that they don't have "much time for this" .... that being pursuant to whatever question or complaint one wants to address. I only buy 1 or 2 items of their "Housebrands" but would not spend a penny more in their fancied up stores. Employees/cashiers are borderline R U D E ...

that is because they have non-stop cameras in their faces and God forbid, any of these cashiers were friendly "beyond the guidelines" ??? The store atmosphere is phony, speak LIBERAL and 4 or 5 bored managers roam around the store trying to look "busy". Stock shelvers working in the isles have an "don't ask me anything" attitude, you guessed it: with cameras on them nonstop ! Products are pulled at random, Fleischmann's Magarine for example ...

when inquiring why, one of the overweight managers pulls their handy dandy hand computers out of their pockets and confirm the product was "pulled" but do not have a straight answer as to why and if they do, one will NOT BE TOLD why !!!! People working in the pharmacy are especially snotty, the women there are nasty *** !

The list goes on and on and on ....bottom line: AVOID SHOPPING AT PUBLIX LIKE THE PLAGUE .. CUZ PUBLIX IS JUST THAT, A PLAGUE !!!!!

Bottle failure

Publix water bottles 16.9 fl ounces will not stand on their own. They fall over. The plastic is too cheap and the packaging too tight.

User's recommendation: Buy name brand bottled water.

Poor customer service

My wife was in the Publix Store at Ballantine Town Center at 11222 Providence Rd W in Charlotte NC this afternoon to buy a chicken to fry for dinner. She chose a whole chicken and asked the butcher/meat department to cut it into pieces. She was told it would cost $10. They said customers had been taking advantage of this service. Isnt that what customer service is all about?

Customer service isn't FREE. There's a reason whole birds are per pound than bird that has been cut.

You and your feckless wife tried to game the system and were finally told now. Tell her to either ante up more for pre-cut or learn to cut it herself at home.

Both of you sound useless. Do not have children.

Upset over drivethru

Grand Oaks pharmacy. Last week had to go inside because drive thru was closed. Went inside they had 6 people working in there. Hurt my leg a couple of days later. can't walk in. Pharmacy drive thru still not open. They told me I could transfer my prescription to another place that has drive thru. I use to work for publix and I am upset over this. They have the people to have it open. I don't understand why.

User's recommendation: Call to check if it's open.

Rude Checkout Clerk

6/25/2022 Store #0252 Clerk Anthony After placing my items on conveyer clerk continued to talk to previous customer. He then proceeded to scan items and continue to talk to previous customer and bagger. I entered my credit card and he printed out receipt and handed it to me. At no time did he ever even to look at me or utter a single word. Completely Rude individual.

COVID Vaccine 5 and under

It is obvious that Publix supports the Republican Party. I have read several times that Publix donates to the Republican Party. It quite obvious after the children vaccination 5 and under. Publix is right in step with DeSantis. I love Publix but I can not spend my money in a store that is so blatantly political. Every political affiliation should feel comfortable and welcomed.

User's recommendation: If you want your money to go political. Have at it.

COVID vaccine political position

COVID vaccine for 5 and under wont vaccinate. I dont believe your corporation should be so political. I read and see over and over again how Publix supports the Republican Party. It is quite obvious with your vaccination policy for children, Publix is right in step with Governor DeSantis. All political affiliations should feel welcome to shop. I love your store, Now I cant shop there if my money is being used for political purpose. Should not be that way.

User's recommendation: If you support the Republican Party have at it.

Went on vacation and forgot meds

Went to Florida for vacation, and forgot to pack my shaving kit, which contained my BP meds. I called the Publix Pharmacy at 55 N Indiana Ave, Englewood, FL and was promptly helped by R. Luis. He went out of his way to assist me in obtaining a new prescription. Not only was Luis exceptional, I can't believe the service I received in that store from all the employees. Everyone was great, unlike the other chain stores where I live in Lousyana. Sure wish we had a Publix here.

User's recommendation: Shop Publix, Be Happy.

Remember the lawyers Do-we Cheatem and How

Got my meds from the pharmacy. I paid and left. I realized that they charge me 2 times the regular price. I went back and told them what they did. I caught them m in error and they said it was a computer error. They said that they will fix it "the next time." Do they really think I'm going back? Has this happened to anyone else?

User's recommendation: They will cheat you whenever they can.

Customer Service

Perry from the deli makes comments about my *** when I get a sub made from there. I think he should be moved from that department. I feel uncomfortable when he is there. I asked another person if she knows anything about him and I was told that this is normal behavior for him. I would like to come order my food in peace without getting hit on. Great subs

User's recommendation: Yes, but another worker.

You again...How many times are you going to post this drivel?

#2176514

Go the google play store and download a voice recorder app. Have your phone in hand and the recording audio on.

Approach the counter and order from him. Once you get him recorded making his comments, leave and ask for the manager and play the recording.

Manager at store 1614 very unprofessional

Hello My name is David I'm a regular customer at this 1614 store Because we live right in front. On 04/14/22 I went to return some yogurt because it was sour. When I gave the receipt to the cashier she disappear. 30 minutes later she came back with a manager then she said that's not my receipt and start screaming in front of other customers. I tried to explain to her that my roommate make the purchase but she won't let me talk and keeps screaming very unprofessional and told security to kick me out like a criminal. So what I'm supposed to do?
