Survey Analyst

Publix Associate

The Survey Project Analyst provides survey results of associate perceptions to managers across Publix's departments and business units which guide decision making and action planning.

How to Apply


The Survey Project Analyst designs and manages surveys to be conducted among all Publix associates or small subsets. These surveys obtain quantitative and qualitative data to help the company understand how satisfied our associates are and how well certain programs are working.

The Survey Project Analyst begins by identifying the scope and objectives of the requested survey and determining the research that will be required to complete the survey. The Analyst consults with the survey sponsor and provides guidance in determining survey questions which will obtain the desired information. This involves establishing survey methodology, procedures, timelines, statistical tests, and the required reporting. To identify any adverse effects, the Analyst assesses the potential impact the survey will have on the department or business area involved and, if required, advises the sponsor of alternative solutions. The Analyst maintains communication with the survey sponsor throughout each phase of the project and monitors progress of survey project assignments, completion rates, and deadlines. The Analyst then reviews survey responses and develops insightful reports which summarize survey data, highlight key findings and provide actionable recommendations. The Survey Analyst also learns and applies new survey methods, tools and statistical procedures in order to maintain continuous quality improvement.
