Application Details

I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Publix in May 2012.

Interview Details

The interview gave me a lot of promise for this job. I received many recommendations for this job, and the store manager (along with other associates) made it sound like the best place to work.

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

    Interview Details

    It was really interesting because I had no experience in food service at all but after a brief interview, was asked to do the drug test right then and attend the orientation. The interviewer commented that I seem to have no problem smiling (I would like to think that helped in his decision to hire me.)

    Interview Details

    1st interview was a simple one. Was asked, Why do u want to work here? What made you switch from an office job. Was pretty easy. No unexpected questions. 2nd was an interview with the Manager. Spoke with him for about an hour. Again, pretty easy. Then was called for pre orientation. Which was basically paper work and a drug test. And then was Orientation. Which was a day of training about history etc. Number of videos. And they also provided lunch.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Publix in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    They offered me an interview via phone. I was sitting down for my interview two days following. They did an oral drug test on the spot. A week later after I passed my drug test and background check, I attended a two day long paid training course with meals included.

    They asked me about my previous work experience, what I did and did not like about my current job, and why I applied.

    Negotiation Details
    There was no need for me to negotiate pay. Nearly two dollars above minimum wage sounded great to me and was far more than what I was currently being paid. I took the bait and ran.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Publix in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    You take a drug swab right there in store, then wait a week to get setup for orientation. Interview process is very informal with the store manager and department manager. Orientation is fun, but isn't what the company is really about. (Only the history of the company.) They will issue you shirts and aprons, but it's up to you to find pants and shoes. Some of the things not covered well enough are the 401k plan, medical benefits.

    Negotiation Details
    Very simple. They tell you what they're paying you and you accept.

    For the location I worked for the store manager hires all employees for every department. I was warned that the customer base was demanding and that the employee base was diverse.

    Interview Questions
    • "What are your weaknesses" - This was my first time being asked this in an interview.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Wasn't really able to negotiate. I didn't have much kitchen experience so they gave me the starting salary. Kitchen experience, customer service certifications, etc. are very good and will give you leverage in negotiating your hourly rate

    I was called and scheduled for an interview the same day. I was asked pretty basic questions. Try to have all your work credentials available. Once they make a decision they move pretty fast.
