Interview Details

We had to apply on a kiosk and where called in about 2 weeks later. They did a very quick interview in their office. Generally when they call you back you've got the job. Once I had the job we had to watch a bunch of safety videos and take a 6-8 hour course on a Sunday before we got the job.

    Application Details

    I applied 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.

    Very few questions. Just look clean and be articulate. Only a few questions regarding customer scenarios. The customer always comes first..

    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 applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed 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.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Publix in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was actually pretty smooth and hardly felt like an interview. I was brought in to meet with the store manager, we sat down, went over how things ran in the grocery department (due to my prior grocery experience) and made some football references and that was it. Probably a 4 minute interview.

    I applied online – interviewed at Publix in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied online at the first Publix store I worked at. The steps go like this.
    First you get a call asking if you are interested in the job still if so they set up an interview.
    Second you go to the interview they will ask you routine questions about the job you will be hired for as well as past experience. Third you will go through a drug screen and background check. And after that you're hired if everything checks out you are hired and start orientation.
