Part Time Cashier Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Anonymous Interview Candidate
Application Details

I applied in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Publix in April 2014.

Interview Details

There is a computerized test you must take in the store. After completing the computerized test I went back in person every day and asked if they had time to look at my application. After about a week I got a call back for an initial interview. The first interview took about 10 minutes and was very basic, they set up a second interview on the spot. The second interview is what you would expect, questions about the companies history, products, previous employment, and past experiences.

    Interview Details

    My interviewer was new to the interview process. She was probably as nervous as I was. I purposely did not include all the positions I had held in the past. There was only one interview with very few questions and I was hired on the spot.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Publix in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was called in and thankfully I was able to go the same day. The store manager called me into his office and made me feel comfortable. He asked me why I wanted to work at Publix and where I saw myself in 5 years. He asked me if I was going to college to which I replied yes. I told him I aspired to become a nurse and that I heard Publix was a good place to work at and that it fit my schedule perfectly for school and work balance. He congratulated me and proceeded to tell me the importance of honesty in the company and on a personal level. He then told me what starting pay was and asked me when I could start the job, he told me it would be perfectly fine if I needed two weeks for my then employer walgreens. I accepted the pay rate and told him I needed two weeks. He then told me I would be getting a drug test, which to my surprise was done right at his office. The test was collected via Q tip and saliva and put into a plastic container and then sent back for testing.

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Publix in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was originally interviewed to be a grocery clerk/stocker. The man who interviewed me was very friendly and it was a very relaxed interview. He decided to go for someone else but suggested they interview me for customer service(something I was more experienced in). The second interview wasn't as relaxed although she was still very polite. I left unsure of how it went but was called back a few hours later and offered a position.
