Q: What is it like working at Publix Super Markets Inc?
Certified Pharmacy Technician (CPHT) in Madison:
"Responsible for everyone."
Pros: I like my co-workers and some of the patients.
Cons: I dislike the feeling of having to babysit our patients. We must remind them to refill meds and put them on an auto refill program and text or call to remind them of things. Also the pharmacist does not get a break in 12 hours or more. Pharmacy is turning into fast food and not healthcare. Also the stress is unreal.
Cashier in Orlando:
"Where working is a pleasure."
Pros: Employers, coworkers are friendly, they're there to help, guide, and assist you with all of your needs. I am physically active, and must socialize all day which keeps my mood positive and energy level is high. My management wants what is best for me and wants me to succeed and grow with the company. Customers are happy and satisfied almost 100 percent of the time. I am confident in what I do and what I am capable of doing at publix. Stock options, and a 401k is just the beginning of all the possible benefits of eventually working full time.
Cons: I have to wait a long time and receive extensive training to earn a full time position even thought my availability is completely open, even weekends and evenings. As a cashier, I am still scheduled to do janitorial work three times or more a week such as running floor machines and sweeping. Bagging is the most physical work I have ever done in the hot weather it lowers my energy and moral. I am highly capable of working full time as a customer service staff and over two years still haven't received any training for the position.

"Publix "A Great Place To Work""

Cake Decorator in Fort Lauderdale:
"Stress Level Is Intense."
Pros: I haven't been here for long, but so far it has been a learning experience. You grow up and learn many techniques as a decorator and seeing the satisfaction from customers is wonderful.
Cons: It is an insanely stressful job. I work at a smaller Publix so we don't have much help in the cake decorating department. Manager doesn't decorate cakes. Head cake decorator is a frump (doesn't even do half of what I do and I manage it all in 30 hours). Fighting with said coworker because she is a frump. Women together is not a good idea.
