Deli Associate Interview

Deli Associate
Florence, AL

I applied in-person - interviewed at Publix in October 2013.

Interview Details – I was hired in when a new store was opening. They were having a job fair in my town. If that is the situation go EARLY. While you are there get to know some of the people who are there for Publix. Talk it up and hope your application get put in the stack that they will actually go thru. Later found out that only a fraction of the application were looked at. Only went to one interview. Same usual questions you get asked: what's your long term plans, what can you do to make Publix a better place to shop and work for.

Interview Question – I was interviewing for the deli and was asked if I like to cook.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I told them what I had to have to leave my current job. Asked if I would take a .50 cut but I would get it back in 3 months. However, Publix had just cut out the 3 month raises so I went to the GM of the store I was training and explained what had happened. I was given my .50 back.

Very Easy Interview

Deli Associate Interview

Deli Associate
Weston, FL

The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Publix in February 2014.

Interview Details – I applied in store at the Job Application Center. I got a call (on a Sunday) about a week after I submitted my application where an interview was set up for that Wednesday. The customer service manager conducted my interview, along with a deli manager who came in for part of it, since I would be working in the deli. However, the process was not much of an interview. After briefly talking about myself for less than five minutes, I was basically told I had the job. The rest of the process involved explaining some of the responsibilities I would have, filling out paperwork, and taking the saliva drug test.

Interview Question – There were no difficult questions. The only statement I had to respond to was "Tell me about yourself."   Answer Question

Kissimmee, FL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Publix in August 2009.

Interview Details – The main issue they were concerned with was availablity because the hours can vary greatly. There is a personality assessment before you speak with someone and you must pass a drug test before you can start.

Interview Question – The personality assessment was the most difficult part of the interview, as these questions can be very tricky.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation.

Interviewed at Publix

Interview Details – I was hired as a deli associate for an internship with my school so for the most part I was interviewed differently than a person who was not interviewed for a non paid internship position. My interview was with the Assistant Deli Manager and then the Deli Manager and then the final was the Store Manager.
