    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Publix.

    Interview Details

    I showed up 15 minutes early and was interviewed right away. I was not given a time frame of when I would know whether I earned the job but I'm qualified and think I did well. The process was very friendly and more of a laid back style. No questions asked are really difficult. Learn somethings about Publix's background and you will do well.

    Application Details

    The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Publix.

    Interview Details

    There were 3 positions available and I was one of 6 candidates interviewing. The interview took about 30-45 minutes and the hiring manager went through several short pages of questions. Some were a bit ridiculous but was an overall good experience. Was told the decision would be made by the next day and would only be notified if I were being offered the position.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Publix.

    All I had to do was submit an application and wait for a response from the employer. When I was called in he asked me if I was good with people, and if I could follow directions, and work hard. When he was done asking questions I took a drug test and that was it.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Publix in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went in filled out an application on the kiosk and spoke to the manager. Since it was Friday, he asked me to come into the store on Monday morning for an interview. On Monday, we spoke for about an hour. We talked about Publix's company culture, and he asked several standard interview questions. The interview was not difficult at all, and was a good interview process for this type of position. He wanted to know why I wanted to work at Publix, and if I'd had previous experience. My interviewer was a longtime employee there, and he was very knowledgeable about the company's history, their expansions throughout the Southeast, and their policies and procedures. He was friendly and we talked about colleges, and sports. I was offered a part-time job in the interview, and I accepted. Basically Publix wants you to be courteous, conscientious; and to care about your work. If you are a reasonably good employee, you should do fine during the interview.
