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.

    Application

    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.

    Interview

    Will ask you basic questions and if they feel that you are friendly and can handle customers politely, they will hire you.

    Took weeks to get a job interview then drug test on the spot. After a week, they will get the result and will call you back for a job offer.

    Interview

    For me, I was called one night and asked to come in to meet with the store manager for an interview. The day of the interview I was actually offered the position and I took it on spot. The interview was quick, short, and to the point but I hear that it is different with every store.

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Publix (Sandy Springs, GA).

    Interview

    General questions about background, nothing too difficult. They were just trying to get a feel for what type of person you were. Show up and be professional and this will be a formality.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Told me a number and that it was as high as they were allowed to offer.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Publix (Nashville, TN) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The interviewer was very relaxed. He made a point to tell me that I need not be nervous. After standard questions, became more of a relaxed conversation rather than a formal interview. We actually ended up talking about hobbies that we had in common at the end.
