Publix has been named one of Fortune’s Best Workplaces for Millennials. Publix ranked No. 34, up from No. 62 last year. More than 4.5 million millennials were anonymously surveyed about their work experiences and potential growth opportunities within their organization, as well as their perceptions on their companies’ levels of innovation, values and quality of leaders.

Our associates are the key to our continued growth and success. We take pride in investing in our associates through benefits like our employee stock ownership program, 401(k) options and tuition reimbursement. Our leaders are committed to our “promote from within” philosophy and dedicated to preparing our associates for opportunity, both personally and professionally.

But, don’t take our word for it.  Keep reading to hear from some of our millennial associates about how Publix has helped them realize their true potential.

Megan – Photographer

“PMeganublix has given me stability while allowing me to continue exploring my passions. They’ve given me a way to invest in my future with a retirement plan and put me in a place financially to be able to afford my first home, all on my own. I continue to learn in my role every day. I feel lucky to have found the rare combination of love for my work and financial independence.

I was 19 years old when I first started working in our stores, thinking this was just a stepping stone to get me through college. At the time, I was in art school, working three jobs, and trying to figure out where I wanted to go post-grad. I later learned about the Photography team at Publix, and that they operated in a traditional studio format, which is what I had learned in school. I applied when the opportunity became available and never once looked back. The greatest part about my career is that I am still a student in a sense. I’ve learned just as much working for Publix as I did in my four years of college.

It’s not just a career Publix has provided me with, it’s worlds deeper than that.”

Jared – Deli ManagerJared

“I believe Publix does a wonderful job of making their associates feel valued. For me, personally, Publix has given me the opportunity to grow within the company. Whether through mentoring or training, Publix has taken the time to invest in its future leaders. As a millennial, this is crucial in my success because I believe loyalty and self-worth are some values that we find most important. A mentor of mine once said, ‘People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care,’ showing that often people are willing to do it your way when you are willing to show them how valuable they are.”


Ciara – Interviewing Specialist for Distribution

“Publix hCiaraas provided me stability and the opportunity for growth. Before Publix, I thought my career was going to be in basketball. I came in as a temporary associate just looking for a source of income to take care of my family. I am very proud to say that I have now been with Publix for five years, and I am looking forward to my continued growth with the company.

I went to school for business but was hired in Printing Services as a warehouse worker and later moved into a position as an equipment operator. Now, I am the interviewing specialist for non-refrigerated warehousing.  My leaders have taken me by the hand and guided me through every obstacle I have faced, and they have helped prepare me for every opportunity that has come my way.”
