Publix grocery chain offers tuition reimbursement in an approved area of study to any employee performing successfully, working an average of 10 hours weekly, and with at least six months of continuous tenure. Information systems programmer Kelly Amig says she started at the company as a part-time cashier while in high school and then completed four years of college without a single student loan, thanks to the program: “I was able to grow personally and professionally because I stayed with Publix.”
