    I applied through other source. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Publix (Tampa, FL) in July 2014.

    Interview

    it was short and simple and the manager was extremely friendly and very laid back, plus you take the drug test right there, it is a flat cotton swab you put in your mouth for like 10 minutes. the manager liked that I didn't have much experience because he liked to train the employees.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Publix (Anderson, SC) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Filled out a kiosk application at the store I wanted to work at. After about a week, I got a phone call from Publix asking if I was still interested. We set up an interview for the following day. It was not mentioned that the interview would take place at a different location. Due to this, I was almost late for the interview, as I first showed up to the location that I had applied at. The interview was with the store manager and head of the grocery department. It took about an hour, and was very positive. I had a great time actually, and learned a lot about the company. I was hired before I left. Three days later I had an orientation at the location that I had initially applied at. This took three 10 hour days, for which I was paid minimum wage. Orientation was far overdone. The day following my last day of orientation I started work. If you want a job with Publix: Research the company first because they are all about Publix. Be positive and smiley. Ask questions as this will show an interest in being a part of their family. Dress well to the interview. Most of the people I worked with were great to be around and were always willing to help me learn. The work was physically demanding, especially for the first three months. There were a couple of people working there who 'gave the place character'. One who seemed to push blame on me to make himself look that much better than someone he worked with; whether the blame belonged to him or was just something that happened. Another started out fine and later seemed to try to instill a sense of discontent with the job in his fellow stock clerks.

    Interview Questions

    • Which of you weaknesses hold you back the most?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Initially I started with $9.75 an hour. I did not sense any room for negotiation, so I did not. Upon my first review, no opportunity for a raise was permitted by the company. I had been told this at orientation so I did not challenge it. Upon my second orientation, I had an opportunity for a raise. If you really play yourself up and point out all of your strengths, while downplaying all of you weaknesses, you may get a raise or full time.
