Just smile, and emphasize your ability to be a compassionate individual. Make sure you imply your long-term intentions, and how the long term is what is really attracting you to the company.

I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Publix (Orlando, FL) in June 2015.
Short, simple.. The lady that interviewed me was a customer service manager .. She was very polite, and basically it didn't feel like an interview because we basically talked the entire time. I told her about myself and she told me about herself. Then, she started explaining things to me about being a bagger & the job of a bagger & she asked is that something I would like to do.. After the interview she said she'd call back later if they were considering hiring me.

You apply in store at a kiosk and once you submit your application the hiring manager will review it and call you back for an interview if they want to hire you. If you're called back for the interview you're already hired. However, getting a call back is so hard. To have the manager take notice of you you have to go into the store after you apply and ask to speak to the manager to introduce yourself. They want to see initiative and they want to weed out the shy people.

The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Publix.
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!

I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Publix (Gainesville, FL) in May 2015.
I applied at my chosen Publix in the store and got called in for an interview a week later. The interview was slightly casual and overall a good experience. They asked fairly simple questions and at the end I was offered a job making $8.50/hr and had to take a drug test.

I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Publix.
Applied at the machine and then introduced myself to the hiring manager and let them know that I applied. Got a call back within a week and got asked to come in for an interview. Interview was very relaxed, manager was very personable. Thought I came off as an outgoing friendly person. He thanked me for my time and told me I would hear back from them in a week or so.

I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Publix (Daytona Beach Shores, FL) in April 2015.
I applied at the machine at the store. I was busy for about a month with interviews with other places, but got a call from a different Publix store than the one that I applied to asking for an interview in a few days(I guess it automatically considers you for stores in the vicinity). I would hardly call it an interview though- it was very easy and I felt as if they had already decided to hire me before I even walked in. I brought my resume, but the manager only asked me a handful of questions and then had me do a drug test. The results came in a few days later and I was called and set up a time for orientation. (by the way- I think having a reference from one of my friends at that store is what distinguished me from other candidates. If you know ANYONE who works at Publix, put their name when you apply at the store)

I applied in-person – interviewed at Publix.
I filled out the application on-site and got a call within 3-4 weeks. At the time, I was a teenager on summer break from school. The interview process was very efficient; it was only the second job interview I'd ever had and I was pleased with how quick, professional, and respectful it was. Whenever I had to wait in the break room to be called in, the employees were very friendly to me. I received a phonecall giving me the job offer within two days after the interview.
