From a management point of view it is not a good idea to do this, but it does happen. It is less troublesome for an assistant department manager to be promoted to a department manager position as the associates already look to them as management. Where problems occur is when a line worker is promoted to management in the same store. This can cause tension as co-worker friendships formed when they were working side by side can cause difficulties for the newly promoted manager who now has to direct their former co-workers.

Yeah. My current CSTL was CSS at my store.


gatorbooster

I went from APM to PM in the same store.


-wanegro-

I know someone who got promoted clerk->gtl->agm->GM all in the same store.


mak1855

It happened at my at store too. Granted, the person had previously left publix as a GM and was good friends with our DM at the time, so they were put on the fast track to GM. It all happened within like 9 months


bonafan

yes


araolivia

Yes. My BM got promoted in store from ABM.


batman100594

Yea I was in stored to GTL in my store


PubBob

I’ve seen it done a few times. I had someone years ago that I trained for office staff. I was OS at the time and was trying to move up. Then they got promoted within the store and was my boss. How awkward is that? I trained my boss.


Pecola2011

Yep I've seen it. One of my former CSTL got in-store promoted to ACSM and ended up the highest respected manager my store has ever seen.


AnnaBeamer77

Yea. I got promoted to assistant deli manager to deli manager in store. If that counts. It Halle s a lot in my area.


florida4_life

Yes. It's happened at my store.


mongo12435

Yes. Happens often.


notsusu

One of my CSTL was promoted to ACSM once


Timorelle

It largely depends on the area. I've seen it a LOT at my current store, where we have two Publix stores eight miles apart and the next-closest Publix to either of those being an hour or more away (so almost all promotions we are either keeping in-store or just trading people back and forth between only the two stores). You would NEVER see it at my old store, in an area where there were four Publix stores within 20 minutes of each other and probably close to 20 more stores altogether within an hour's radius.


DavaughnKardashian

at my old store 273. from css to cstl but it only happened once.


[deleted]

273, I still have nightmares


DavaughnKardashian

[deleted]

Just at the last inventory tagging for a couple days, so it was extra clustered in there


DavaughnKardashian

im so sorry.


[deleted]

Yeet, at least they're getting a new store "soon"


DavaughnKardashian

it was supposed to be 2019... now its first quarter 2020. smh.


[deleted]

I was talking to the GM and he said 2021, it'll come when it comes I guess.


DavaughnKardashian

lol or never.


Johndoe23d

Happened at my store last week lol Hasn’t gone well at all


Katapultt

Both of my GTLs are from my store


GL54

I would’ve cried if i got in store promoted to Department head at my previous store. Yeah I’d been at higher volume store but i was ready to get the hell outta there lmao.


velrich1

Yeah


[deleted]

Happened to me, and I know of other people it has happened for. Just today we promoted a GRS in store


Liarxagerate

It's happening quite a bit up in my district in NC. Were kind if short on managers though.


TRASHYRANGER

Happened at my first store but just stock clerk to team leader. I honestly butted heads with him and we were good friends. It’s a good idea to switch store upon promotion imo.


FrostFairy73

Short answer is yes. More likely to happen when your store is 50 miles from any other store.
