    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Publix (Miami, FL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The process was very straightforward. Make sure that after applying at JAC, go talk to one of the store representatives, such as the Associate Store Manager. Leave a good/friendly first impression and they will make your application stand out. Arrive at least 15 minutes before the scheduled interview and do some practice interviews in your head and make sure to bring at least TWO (2) resumes. Ask if they would like to see a copy of your resume even if they didn't ask. The interview was fairly relaxed, but make sure you answer sincerely and put the emphasis of good customer service. Lastly, make sure to have at least 2 questions to ask the interviewer (not just for show) that you would personally want to know (i.e. work environment, priorities, etc).

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Publix usually pays a little above minimum wage. Don't ask for a raise before you even start but work your way up through promotions and such.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Publix (Clemson, SC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I made sure I called at least once a week to make sure they were looking at my application. Eventually, I had an interview with the customer service manager. It was quick, only about 10 minutes if that, and they said stheyhe would give me a call back later in the week if the store manager wanted to meet me. You must interview with the store manager in order to receive an offer, as they make the last decision. I met with the store manager and that interview was only about 10 minutes as well. I was told that I would receive a call if they wish to hire me. The next day I received a call offering me a position in the produce department, which wasn't what I originally interviewed for, but I accepted.

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Publix.

    Interview

    The process was really easy. I expected worse, but the questions were very easy and straightforward with no pressure from the managers there. They also had me take an oral drug test there. You have to sit there for about 5-10 minutes after your interview is over, you've been hired, and they give you their pay idea for you. Then you just have to wait for the test to be done, sealed, and put away for shipping.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Publix (Lilburn, GA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    You have to go to a job kiosk and fill out some stuff. Then they'll call you to do a one on one interview. They tend to be more friendly than other low-skill recruiters. In fact, they're so friendly that you will probably leave the interview thinking you made it.
