Frontline Supervisor

Publix Associate

There's rarely a dull moment in Publix's warehouses with all of the roving lift trucks performing shipping and receiving duties and the sounds of their precautionary "beep-beeps" when rounding corners. Frontline Supervisors maintain order and balance to this flurry of daily activity.

How to Apply

Contributions

Frontline Supervisors plan and oversee the day-to-day operation of Publix's warehouses. It's their responsibility to analyze daily orders from the stores to determine work priorities and staffing that will be required to complete the day's work. The Supervisors also conduct long-term planning, including increases in staff for busy times of the year, when the warehouses move the greatest number of products.

In the event of a hurricane or any other event that spurs higher demand for store products, the Frontline Supervisors adjust work schedules to satisfy the needs of our customers. When personnel conflicts arise, these Supervisors identify and resolve issues to maintain camaraderie, teamwork and productivity for the warehouse team. Furthermore, Supervisors maintain communication with associates by facilitating meetings and by providing evaluations, mentorship and coaching. Frontline Supervisors also communicate with other departments and with Publix stores to maintain efficiency and ensure satisfaction with the overall warehouse operation.
