My husband and I both worked for Publix, my husband in mgmt for them, and they will do everything they can to keep Albertson's employees. Publix is quite honestly one of the best companies I ever worked for.
I agree 100%. Publix will re-train Albertsons people and give them great paying jobs. I have been employed with Publix for 22 years, I was a high school drop-out and now I'm in Management. Publix gave me cash incentives for getting a High School Diploma,Sanitation courses and a comaraderie that is untouchable.

I worked for Albertsons for 15 years. I saw many GOOD managers lose thie jobs. I took a step down from grocery manger and decided to manage a department. Well let me tell you 6 days before my 15 year anniversry date I was fired. Not a person backed me up as they were scared for there jobs.
I was 2 weeks pregnant and my doctor told me that I was high risk and could not do any physical work. BIG mistake- I went to My store manager with this and told him I needed to hire several other people to unload trucks and I needed help as I was supposed to have 4 other employees under me. I meantioned my sick pay I had aquired after 15 years. WELL The next day I was called to the office and let GO. I went home and was so upset I started Hemoraging. I ended up in the hospital; and was strictly bedridden for 9 months so I could not fight this large corporation who SCREWED me out of ALL my benefits. I hope that Jim perkins and his croney Mike App end up flipping burgers. Too many GOOD people lost there jobs while they were sitting on there thrones slepeing with whomever batted there eyes at them.
I may be late to the party on this but just thought I'd inform you that by the time you posted your absurd post about them "slepeing" with whomever that Jim Perkins was no longer working in Florida but in California. If you took the time to be mean and nasty, take the time to know what you are talking about. kthanks.

People in Florida shop in their gowns, robes or zip up mu-mus plus drive about 20-25 miles an hour. I could jog to the store faster than driving. Of course, the other retirement state is Arizona. I've been there too. It's Hell on earth. Try going there in July. No, thank you.
