I am a Publix employee who has recently hit my fifth yr. at this company.I wish to tell
you that what looks good on paper isn't always reality.While Publix has alot of great stores
with fantastic managment there are also some terrible ones.The worst ones are the high
volume stores(most popular).Management at high volume stores are allowed to run
their depts. like their own personal kingdom. I have witnessed
inappropriate behavior by management.Such as swearing at workers,intimidation(my boss
is notorious for this.) Refusal of a cost of living wages. As well disclosing private information
about employees to other employees for the sake of gossip.Every year we must do an anonymous
survey about whether we are happy with our company.During this survey we are
closely monitored by a h.r. worker. we are not treated fairly,we do not make top pay.
We are hindred by management from going to college or finding other employment so that our lives
are consumed by Publix. I am only telling the truth about my company where one can only succeed if they are family or favorite.
