I worked at PublixPros
I worked for Publix for 6 years. I was a manager 4 of those years. In all of the time that I was with them they took really great care of me. They expect a little more from their managers but they compensate them much better than any other grocery store. They equip their people far better than any other grocery store I have worked at. If you are seeking a long term career Publix is the place. Be willing to start out the bottom, set your sights on management, work hard and be faithful and you will get there quickly. The retirement is awesome with Publix. In the 6 years I was there I accumulated 20000 dollars in stocks just from what they gave me. They are all employee owned, and don't suffer fools. Meaning that if your not all in It might not be the place for you.Cons
Sometimes upper management can forget to acknowledge and appreciate the good work of their employees. Their are different ways to get the same results. Personalities vary from store to store so it in one store you could have the misfortune of seek leadership though Publix is usually pretty good about spotting that and helping their managers to become better.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Coach your team. Don't talk down, or beat them down. Bring them up to the standard, raise the bar. If people are willing to meet you at the half way point then work with them. help them get better
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied in-person. The process took a week – interviewed at Publix.Interview Details
First step, come in and put the app in. Yes, in. You cannot take it online. It is very helpful to take full initiative, talk to a manager, introduce yourself, explain you'd love to work there, you're a fast learner and a hard worker with a flexible schedule. Be the person they want, make them enthusiastic about hiring you. Let them know your app is already in. You'll get a call for an interview. Then, post interview, a call for paperwork and a drug test (mouth swab test). You're in! Next is orientation, a day with other newly hired folks, a free lunch, and learning about the company.
Application has MANY trick questions. If you're not going for a manager position, there are questions that are worded just to trick you as a employee under someone. Questions that you think they'd want you to take leadership in and make it sound like you'd be bothering the manager if you asked for help. But REALLY, you should always just choose the question that sounds like you're listening to your manager. If you think choosing "agree" rather than "strongly agree" is honest and appealing to the employer, you're wrong. If it sounds good, hit strongly agree. Sounds bad, hit strongly disagree.Interview Questions
Negotiation DetailsI didn't even know my pay til I was hired, I never bothered to ask. Turned out when I logged into my employee profile, I was making $9/hr! Never needed to negotiate.Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
