Well i know a lot of people are speculating that publix managers purposely put stupid rules and write people up constantly, especially older workers who get paid good, to kick them out or have them leave on their own , just so they don't have to pay them as much or have less people with benefits and good pay which I've seen and its becoming very obvious its turning into that.

Poor management especially in the deli. Been scheduled for training but only explain you stuffs in 3hrs and make you work with it right away.When you ask questions ,other associates will get mad at you for not knowing anything. Well,how would you instantly know variety of beef,turkey,ham,salami,chicken and cheese right away and the worst part associates gossips and talks ill about others. Manager doesn’t care about you I asked to be transfered to another department since its very hard in the deli and to be told that how can I handle the stress in the military when I can’t even handle it in the deli. Very offensive remark from a manager and well for sure I can do handle the stress there and not in the deli because I don’t see myself working in the deli forever.Glad I quit!

It was an awful experience. They were 20 minutes late for the interview, and the person who was supposed to interview me did not. It was passed off to another person and she was mad because she had to interview me. She blew it off and had no interest in interviewing me and then she told me she definitely would call me back in three or four days. I never heard back. I will never shop at Publix again.

The only question I was asked is if I thought I could do the job. The interviewer had no interest in interviewing me. The interview was pawned off on another person, and the person who was doing the interview was mad and took it out on me.

I dread it when I have to wake up at 2 am. I work early shift and I dread walking in and seeing the disaster from closing shift and having to clean up whatever they left.

I got called on friday for an interview on monday. Accepted job offer and did drug test at interview. Everything came back by Wednesday. Went Friday to complete hiring paperwork and went to orientation that Saturday. Following orientation, i had in-store computer training that Monday. So my whole process was 1 week.

Horrible hours, short staffed, and you have to work days and hours you said you weren't available when hired originally
