Why I Love Publix
Divisional Loss Prevention Manager
I started working for Publix in 2001 as a Loss Prevention Specialist. I can still remember my first day. I was scared, nervous, and unsure if I had made the right decision to leave my last job, all of the things that any normal person would think about. I had been with a major retail department store chain for almost 10 years before joining Publix, but it took only one day to realize that this is a family, not just a workplace.
In 2006 I was promoted to my current position as the Divisional Loss Prevention Manager for the Miami Division. My 12 years of service here are short compared to many Publix associates. There are plenty who have been here more than 20 years with no plans to leave before retirement.
When you get up every morning and go to work, are you going someplace that you can't wait for the end of the day to come, or someplace that the day goes by too quickly? I think we spend most of our lives thinking that "the grass is greener on the other side", and sometimes we are disappointed because we find that is not true. However, the grass was greener for me at Publix and I believe that would be the same for you.
On many occasions I have sat in one of the Publix cafeterias eating my lunch when the Divisional Vice President, a Director, the Chief Financial Officer, sometimes even the President, will sit at the same table with you and ask you about your day, your family. It is the greatest thing. The first time I experienced this, I was amazed. At Publix we take pride in treating each other with dignity and respect, and it's a great feeling. One of my responsibilities is to protect the assets of Publix, including our associates, My Family!
