According to Indeed.com, Publix was recognized as a top-rated workplace for veterans.

Army veteran, George Ford, who has been a Publix employee for 15 years said he appreciates getting a job after serving his country.

“It’s definitely a transition and Publix fits well with that,” Ford said. “The camaraderie and high standards ties in well with Publix for those veterans."

The U.S. Department of Labor recently reported that last month the veteran unemployment rate is the lowest it has been in more than 18 years.
