Front Service Clerk (Bagger) Interview

Front Service Clerk (Bagger)

Interviewed at Publix

Interview Details – The interview process was very simple. Sine you log in all of your information of the computer prior to the interview they have all of your necessary and basic strengths and weaknesses. I was first asked to describe myself and tell the interviewer about my basic day to day schedule and what projects and events I was currently working on. Took a drug test right after the interview. All together lasted about 30 minutes.

Negotiation Details – Starting pay of $8. Above minimum wage for a first job

Front Service Clerk (Bagger) Interview

Front Service Clerk (Bagger)
Fairview, TN

I applied in-person and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Publix in June 2011.

Interview Details – There is a very lengthy application to fill out that includes a quiz that (I think) doesn't really have right or wrong answers to some of the questions, but are more for figuring out what kind of person you are. But in all honesty I don't know one employee that got hired by applying only. We all have some connection or talked to management to show interest. I know another store manager and I still had to renew my application 5 times and talked to an assistant manager 3 times before finally getting a "pre" interview as he called it. Soon after I got a call from his boss asking me to come in for an interview and got a call a few days later saying I got the job.

Interview Question – "what would be considered a waste of your time?"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I got a phone call saying they wanted to offer me a part time front service clerk position, and asked if I were still interested and I was they would set up an orientation. Pretty brief process.

Interview Question – The interview was not difficult at all. It was more like a conversation and getting to know each other.   Answer Question

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Altamonte Springs, FL

I applied in-person and 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 Question – 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.
