“Using company ratings from the Temkin Group, The Fiscal Times created its own ranking of America’s favorite U.S. supermarkets among the 24 largest chains,” MSN Money, which wrote about the rankings, reported.

Publix ranked first among all supermarkets in Temkin’s ratings on characteristics such as experience, customer service, trust and forgiveness.

Job Fairs, hiring opportunities and informational events, oh my!

In order to provide the premier customer service we are known for, Publix has to have a workforce of enthusiastic, committed associates who enjoy making people smile.  For this reason, we frequently hold application events,  job fairs, and career-related informational events in locations throughout our six-state footprint all the time.  Some events are held to hire associates for stores that are not yet open. Others are held to  hire our newest Publix associates for existing stores.  Informational events allow candidates and customers to “Meet the Manager” or “Meet the Recruiter” to learn details about job opportunities, the hiring process, and about working at Publix.

These events vary, as you’ve just seen by the examples listed above, and this blog entry will be updated frequently as new events are planned and old events are completed.  For that reason, it’s a good idea to bookmark this entry and check back from time to time to see what’s going on in terms of upcoming hiring events and informational events.

Before we list our events, though, here are a few points you’ll want to consider about working at Publix:

We have a tremendous reputation both as a supermarket chain and as an employer. In fact, we’re ranked among FORTUNE Magazine’s Best 100 Companies to work for each year. We’re also stable — celebrating our 86th anniversary in September!  Additionally, we are the largest employee-owned company in the nation!  There are many more reasons our associates love working for Publix and you can learn about some of these on our website at .
