Retail jobs may not always carry the best reputation, but Publix employees have reason to come to work happy.
Several reasons, actually, according to a Great Place to Work report that just named the Lakeland-based grocer No. 3 on a list of the 20 best places to have a job in retail.
The list was compiled after Fortune partner Great Place to Work issued thousands of employee surveys. Nearly 1,400 Publix employees were surveyed across the chain's 1,170 locations.
Publix was beat out by New York chain Wegmans Food Markets at No. 1 and Oklahoma's QuikTrip at No. 2.
A total of 88 percent of Publix employees surveyed said their workplace was great. The same percentage said they were proud to tell people where they worked.

"I would say the most unique thing about working at Publix is all the possible career paths that you can take in the company," one employee wrote. "If you do not like the job position or the warehouse you are working in, you are very easily able to request a different position or shuffle to another warehouse and keep your same position."
