At Publix, we believe that systematic thinking produces systematic processes, which in turn deliver consistent, sustainable results.   That’s one of the keys to our success and our reputation as a leader in the retail industry.

For that reason, we employ a lot of analysts.  Hundreds of them.  They work in our corporate offices, our distribution centers, and our manufacturing plants, primarily in Florida and Georgia.

So if you have the education, experience or penchant for analytical thinking, this might be a good fit for your career.

    How is your company working to ensure the ethical and humane treatment of animals throughout the company’s supply chain?
    How is your company ensuring that product offerings are cruelty free?

      This is a blog devoted to employment issues. We do not deal with the topic of animal treatment. Feel free to address your question to our Customer Care team on this webpage:

    As a current associate working in the SWFL region, What advice would you give on trying to mold my career path in this direction? I have a BS degree in Business and also have a black belt in Six Sigma. I truly enjoy working for Publix and feel I have the ability to take on new challenges with Publix. I feel by working in retail I am falling behind on developing the proper job experience and qualifications to be considered a qualified candidate. Would really appreciate and feedback on steps I can make gain exposure for hiring managers?

      If you want to work in our corporate office, you should research our corporate careers section to better understand the different departments and positions.
      Go to The key is to identify what you want to do, and then to pay attention to the qualifications that are required.
      We have hundreds of opportunities, but you have to focus on what it is you want.

    Good morning,

    I just had a question regarding your corporate support center opportunities and positions:

    What kind of time-off/vacation benefits do you offer for corporate positions?

    I am familiar with the time-off/vacation benefits for the Store positions, as I have a friend who works there. I was just curious if Publix offered a different policy for the corporate support center or if it followed the same schedule as a Full-Time Associate.

    Thank you for your time.
