Grocery-stores don't have 'cultures'. A culture is something that forms over hundreds of years, sometimes thousands, within a nation.
Farming techniques, religions, festivals, and the like. That is only a small sampling of the *** you will have to put up with if you decide to work here. I know, doesn't sound like much, but after three years of working here, after three years of having Corporate ***-offs micromanage every aspect of your work, and then fly in your face and say we're an employee-owned company and we're what makes this store great, meanwhile I'm listening to a deli coworker SOBBING in the back room because she was shrieked at for one of her sub-kits weighing .37 instead of the mandatory .38.
Publix is a great place to work for, if you're in Corporate. You don't have to deal with angry customers or chicken fat or working eight hours without a lunch break because three *** decided to call out on the same day. But, fair warning, yes, if you work hard and you're friendly, people will like you. Your managers might even like you, but that isn't all it takes to get into Corporate, to be, 'above it all'. You have to kiss ***. I know what you're thinking, 'are you just angry and bitter? Do you hate your managers or your coworkers?' No. I liked them, I liked all of them, and I was so sick and tired of seeing them having to constantly apologize for things that weren't their fault. "Sorry the rotisserie chickens that we neither raised nor fed broke the 'publix promise' by weighing less than the sticker said they did" or, "Sorry that homeless man ran upstairs to your office, store manager, screaming that he wanted a free chicken because we wouldn't give him a free potato-ball". Yeah, get used to apologizing, get used to fake-smiling, and get used to praising, 'The Glorious Nation of Publix', because it's your only way into corporate.
Just throwing it out there.
