    Interview

    Easy. regular interview questions. Very low key. Asked about work history, ect. One on one with DM. Wanted to know about previous jobs, why you think public will be different, ect. Public is doing a lot of MTM and things like that and wanted to know if you think thats good.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Publix.

    Interview

    There was no real "interview". Walked in, met with the Store Manager (he rambled on about himself and other irrelevant things), and I was hired on the spot. But then again, I earned a degree, and was looking for an entry-level job in a grocery store.

    Support III Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Publix (Lakeland, FL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I got a call the next day for an interview. It was very professional and a bit intimidating. They asked all the typical interview questions. They told me that I was asking too much in salary for the position when it wasn't even 14 dollars an hour requested. They can defiantly afford more for a position they claim have supervisory duties.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Publix (Savannah, GA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was beyond easy. My interviewer was very nice and outgoing. The definition of a "breezy" interview if I must say. My advice to anyone would be to just go to the interview with confident, and everything will just fine.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Publix (Augusta, GA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was easy. The store manager and assistant store manager interviewed me and did most of The talking. Which I definitely appreciated because sometimes interviews make me nervous. They let me know about the company and asked what's interests were to get a feel of the type of person I am.

    Front Service Clerk (Bagger) Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Publix.

    Interview

    I filled out the application on-site and got a call within 3-4 weeks. At the time, I was a teenager on summer break from school. The interview process was very efficient; it was only the second job interview I'd ever had and I was pleased with how quick, professional, and respectful it was. Whenever I had to wait in the break room to be called in, the employees were very friendly to me. I received a phonecall giving me the job offer within two days after the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Publix (Clemson, SC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I made sure I called at least once a week to make sure they were looking at my application. Eventually, I had an interview with the customer service manager. It was quick, only about 10 minutes if that, and they said stheyhe would give me a call back later in the week if the store manager wanted to meet me. You must interview with the store manager in order to receive an offer, as they make the last decision. I met with the store manager and that interview was only about 10 minutes as well. I was told that I would receive a call if they wish to hire me. The next day I received a call offering me a position in the produce department, which wasn't what I originally interviewed for, but I accepted.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Publix (Orlando, FL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Interview seemed very straight forward. They were more curious about my ability to handle cash, do math, treat customers with respect, etc. Also, they wanted to know more about my schedule and when I would be available since my job is part time. Overall, it's not a hard interview. I felt very comfortable with the whole interview and just answered the questions honestly. It seems that Publix just wants honest employees who are willing to be team players and work hard.
