Publix Super Markets
Front Desk Clerk
April 2011 — February 2014
Here I learned at Publix how my interpersonal skills extended into the consumers, not only the consumers but helped the company’s bottom-line. Working with an eclectic group of people, I grasp intangible experience in learning how to work with others to achieve common goals.
Founded in 1930 by George Jenkins ( affectionally called "Mr. George")
Publix was my first job! I am and will continue to be a Publix advocate that will willingly and thoughtfully promote the grocery retail chain as much as I can. Publix has cultivated a culture unlike any other. Through Publix I have grown professionally with hands on leaders who gave me opportunities to use my skills providing customers with truly a shopping experience that is "a pleasure". What I found during my time working at Publix, is that the asking of simple questions to customers will always provide simple solutions to the already complex business realm that proved to make me successful at every aspect of my job. Every engagement I take into personal account, knowing my complete commitment to an overall goal will influence direction to achieving the culture and expectations the company sets. This job allowed me to every day come in and execute strenuous task (getting the small things right), such as solving impromptu problems that occurred.
I am one to always value relationships, and Publix remained the cornerstone beyond the professional aspect of my daily interactions with the customers. Often these interactions extended into personal life tying in friends and family around a family oriented company.
