    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    interviewed at Publix in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    You have to apply in the store. It takes at least 30 minutes, sometimes more. They should call you within 30 days of your application. If they do not call you within 30 days, then you can apply again. What was interesting about my situation is that they called me after 40 days, but I have never heard that happening with anyone else.

    Interview Questions
    • It was a basic interview. He also asked me to sell him his Gatorade bottle sitting on his desk. I found that to be a little interesting since cashiering does not require a lot of sales.   Answer Question

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Publix in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    When I was called for the interview they didn't even specify who was calling and from where they were calling aka Publix. Scheduled my interview, I came in and interviewed I was asked to tell about myself and really that is it. They ask about your availability. They ask about your school schedule if you are in school. They ask about any previous experience. It was not complicated at all.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 days - interviewed at Publix.

    Interview Details

    Went into the store and applied at the kiosk. A manager had seen me applying and came over to me, he then asked if I could interview right then. He took me to an office and we chatted. I was only 16 at the time so I wasn't sure how the process was supposed to go. He was a very laid back chill guy and I felt very comfortable the entire time. He is still, 9 years later, my favorite manager. After talking for a bit he asked me when I could come back with a parent for a drug test, I went back that night and was told I had the job. Started work the next week.

    Interview Questions
    • There weren't any difficult questions, the only one that sticks out in my mind that he asked me was "Why do you want to work for Publix?"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, I was 16 and got minimum wage like every other teenager.

    Interview Details

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

    Interview Details

    Met with a very pleasant lady. She went over what the company was and asked me about myself. She went on to say this was the first part of the interviewing process and I would be interviewed by the store manager or assistant next. She told me thing went great and I would be hearing from someone soon.

    Interview Questions
    • There was really nothing difficult or unexpected in the interview. My only things is the background check. I haven't commitede murder or anything like that, but I know they are going to conduct one and there are a few things on there. Does anybody know how far back they will go?   View Answer

    Interview Details

    It's very hard to get into Publix. It is recommended that after you submit your application you introduce yourself to the manager and come back to speak to them from time to time to let them know that you are still interested in a job. I only had one interview where I also offered the job contingent upon my drug test.
