Publix, more than retail

I left a 53k a year job
One year ago
Stressed
Not sure if it would work out
I lost a car
Gained a lot of debt
Took a massive pay cut
Worked three jobs just to get by
Made it to full time in 90 days
Every day gets better

What I found
Was more than just retail
More than just a “job”
But a culture
Where I could learn and grow
Where I would be challenged daily
To be my best
And then better
It’s not a job
It’s more than a family
It’s a business
That each associate has ownership and responsibility of
It‘s been the greatest risk I’ve taken
But it’s been worth every hit…
The sky is literally the limit
There’s opportunity everywhere

Publix is about people
And its communities
It is as good or bad as you want it to be…
Here I’ve found values that I align with
Challenges that make me better in every area of my life…
I’ve been greatly humbled
But I’ve never been more excited about my future.
