    Interview

    it was a very relaxed interview, I was still very nervous though because it was my first interview ever, but it wasn't hard at all.. I applied for the job and then about 3 weeks later I got scheduled for an interview. I followed through with the job twice! and me following through has definitely helped... And I should be hearing back from them in a few days!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Publix (Dacula, GA).

    Interview

    Waited forever .. Interviewer was late
    Interviewer kept focusing on how physical the job was (I am female and kind of small). I regularly lift heavy weights, worked manufacturing (heavy lifting) for 9+ years, and am solidly built. I feel like he kept seeing my gender as an issue. Questions were rushed and he seemed disinterested and hurried. Maybe I should have went into the interview in ripped jeans and a muscle shirt.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Publix in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was quick and easy. The manager gave a run down of what he was looking for and what not. I did not receive an offer as I am a college student that needs to transfer between stores. The manager said he would call the local store and do some research for me. I appreciated his willingness to do so. He said he will call back the first of the week. Over all a good experience, with a quick and easy interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Publix (Lakeland, FL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I got a call the next day for an interview. It was very professional and a bit intimidating. They asked all the typical interview questions. They told me that I was asking too much in salary for the position when it wasn't even 14 dollars an hour requested. They can defiantly afford more for a position they claim have supervisory duties.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Publix (Lakeland, FL).

    Interview

    The .net programmer position advertised was really a real IT help desk role. I found that out during the interview process and they said "Yeah this is a developer position but it is good to know .net but we provide support as well. I wish these people were upfront about the position. It was a total waste of time. I Didn't hear back from them and I was glad since this was really a help desk role and not a developer role like advertised.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Publix in January 2015.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview, they scheduled second interview and never called back.

    Interviewer was very concerned about a specific software and did not go over the other skills.

    It sounded like what he was asking had to do with things he didn't know how to do.

    I did get a second call and was asked to wait to get an email to schedule face to face, that never happened.
