    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).

    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.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Publix (Miami, FL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was very simple. After applying at the publix store, My mother (publix employee) referred me to her manager.. After 1 week I was contacted for an interview. The manager was extremely friendly and because of my mother's employment there, he wanted to keep it, as he said, "short and sweet".. asked me one question and explained to me the importance of great customer service.. After that, I was hired. I was supposed to come back in three days later to do the drug test, but the manager decided to do it that same day.. A few days later I was called back in after getting the test results and given Publix cashier uniform (vest, white button down, and name tag).. I was scheduled to go to orientation the following week at another local Publix.. The orientation lasted about half of the day and was very helpful.. The day after orientation was my first day of training (computer, videos).. A few days after completing the video training, I was starting physical, on the job training ( I already knew everyone at this Publix so it made the experience 10x easier ).. I trained for almost 2 weeks before being put on my own.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Publix (Savannah, GA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was beyond easy. My interviewer was very nice and outgoing. The definition of a "breezy" interview if I must say. My advice to anyone would be to just go to the interview with confident, and everything will just fine.

    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.
