Cashier Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jacksonville, FL
Declined Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Publix (Jacksonville, FL) in January 2014.

Interview

Thorough interview, very friendly. They care a lot about customer service, so they care about their employees as well; happy employees equal happy, repeat customers. Easy interview process, but they do take it seriously; easy does not mean unprofessional.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Publix.

    Interview

    It was very brief in the front office of the store. Since the application is through a computer, he had it printed out and looked at that. I also brought my resume with me, but he didn't really look at it. He pretty much just confirmed my information and then asked me the typical part time questions. I also had to do an oral drug test at the time of the interview (cotton thing in mouth). I applied in-store, but didn't hear back. After a while, someone called and offered me an interview. It was for a different store, so keep in mind the system that you apply to is actually an application for the different stores in the area.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Publix (Marietta, GA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I asked to speak to the hiring manager and he just asked me why I wanted to work at Publix specifically. He then asked my availability and I told him I was flexible and had a pretty open availability because I wanted to get hired. Then I got a call for a second interview with the Customer Service Assistant Manager. This guy asked me why I was in Georgia since I wasn't from there and then I was hired on the spot. So basically, the first guy must've liked me in the 5 minutes I talked to him on the store floor.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Publix (Indian Trail, NC) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Interview was very laid back and casual. I met with the Customer Service Manager and her Assistant Customer Service Manager. Questions were really easy, mainly just why publix, why I'm leaving my current job, what my roles are currently. Came back for a second interview with the store manager which was also pretty easy. Asked me what service meant to me and explain a time I had a difficult customer. Had to take a drug test and get a background test done and then was offered a position.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Publix (Miami, FL) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied at publix and within two weeks I was called for an interview. I also want to say that I went into a publix to speak to a manager because it's always better for them to see you face to face, it let's them know you want the job.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked basic questions like do you have transportation and are you willing to come to work if you weren't scheduled and we need you. I was also asked about my customer service experience.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Publix (Naples, FL).

    Interview

    Applied in store, was called in for an interview a few days later. It was extremely easy. The store manager just asked my availability, if I was in school or had any schedule restrictions then described the company. That was all. After describing the company he told me I was hired, what I'd be paid and that I'd be hearing back soon to get started. He didn't go into detail about the position I applied for (and was hired for) though.
