Life At Publix
People don’t just work here—they build their careers here. Our founder, George W. Jenkins, was dedicated to helping his employees prepare for opportunities and grow in their careers. We are proud to continue his legacy with an award-winning culture that supports diversity, nurtures potential, fosters friendships, rewards excellence, and cares for its community.
Invest in others. Prepare for opportunity. Respect the dignity of the individual. Give back. These are some of the values we were founded on and what makes Publix special to our associates, customers, and community.
