Training Developer

Publix Associate

Publix is committed to investing in our associates by ensuring they receive the necessary training to perform their jobs. Training Developers serve a key role in that process.

How to Apply


Training Developers create on-the-job training programs for more than 150,000 of our retail associates, technical and operational training for more than 13,000 retail department managers, leadership training for 14,000 company leaders, and implementation training to support strategic initiatives throughout the company.

This requires Training Developers to create reference guides, facilitator guides, student workbooks, computer-based training courses, videos, posters, and job aids. To develop educationally sound materials, our Training Developers work alongside our Retail associates, interview subject matter experts, and learn new technologies being implemented in our company.

Our Training Developers must have a passion for learning, for passing on knowledge to others in the company, and for helping associates grow and develop in their careers and in their leadership abilities.
