Grocery Clerk Interview

Anonymous Employee
Anonymous Employee
Application Details

I interviewed through other source - interviewed at Publix.

Interview Details

Applied on the computer in the store, got a call about 3 weeks later. Had an interview the week after the call and it seemed to go well. Just basic questions were asked. I didnt hear anything back for about 3 or 4 weeks so i returned to the store and talked to the manager again and let him know i was still interested. He called me soon after to come in for a drug screening and set up the orientation. After the orientation i was told to go back to the store to set fill out paper work and what not and the manager said i was hired and i started about a week later. It seemed like it took forever to finally get hired.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation you start at 9 at this store. The hiring and wage usually depends on the store manager. I've seen people start at 11 an hour but this is the exception and almost everyone starts part time.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Publix.

    Interview Details

    After filling out an application, I spoke with the Store Manager and introduced myself, and I explained my background and skills. A few days later I got a phone call to come in and interview. The interview itself was quite simple, the job application that I filled out on the kiosk was referenced a few times and we discussed my skills and we talked about sports for a minute. After the interview was finished we shook hands and I left, and then a couple of days later I got a phone from the HR rep. saying that I beat out the three other candidates and I got the job.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing difficult, the questions were pretty easy and straight forward. I was quizzed on some Publix history though.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, I was offered a base rate that was slightly commensurated with the experience I had.
