I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Publix (Surfside Beach, Horry, SC) in March 2017.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Publix.

    Interview

    You get called and interviewed within a few days. The questions I answered focused on remembering tasks by telling me a list of things and repeating them to the interviewer perfectly. Also questions like why do you want the job, tell me about yourself, and would I be willing to do certain jobs. There was only one interview and within a week I was contacted for the job. After an arduous drug and alcohol test as well as a 5 hour class to learn the basics of the job and a few online training modules, it took about a month to start officially working at Publix.

    • You might be tasked with several jobs before closing the store for the day, such as mop, wash, and clean the floors, clean the bathrooms, count register tills, block the aisles and lock the front door. Now repeat to me the tasks I just told you.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Publix (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I got the interview a week after I applied. The store you applied for may not be the store you will get so keep that in mind. The interview was simple. The hiring manager wanted to know more about you and asked you questions about how you would deal with the customers. There are plenty of room to ask questions. I was hired on the spot, while for others they call you back.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    My interview wasn't really even an interview. Once you've scheduled your interview with the store manager, you have the job. The only way you won't get it at that point is if you can't pass the drug test. My test was a few days post interview, however some stores have been known to do same day testing after the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Since Publix is a company that tends to hire people based on who they know, my interview questions weren't very specific. I was 16 so most of the questions to gauge my responsibility level were about school and how I handle different tasks there.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Publix (Lake Wales, FL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied in store and they called me a week later for an interview. My interview took about twenty minutes, and then I was hired. The man only asked me three questions then I did a drug test. Once my drug and background test comes back okay, I will go to a five hours orientation then an eight hour orientation and I start the job.
