I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Publix (Jacksonville, FL).

First you go in the store and fill out an application, then they call you to come in for a very basic interview and to take a drug test. You need to pass the drug test in order to be hired.

    Positive Experience
    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Publix.

    Interview

    Attended job fair - which consisted of application/survey and role playing. After a few days I got a call for a second interview, which was a one on one. I was asked a few general questions (why did I want to work for publix, prior job history and what a knew about Publix). Lasted around 5-10 mins. After a few days I was called for a third interview and was told to bring 2 forms of id. I was offered a position and accepted. They did a drug test on the spot and said they would do a background check.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Publix (Orlando, FL) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed in the back room with a manager.
    They wanted to get to know you to judge your character.

    Do NOT go in dressing like trash, otherwise you are going to get tossed out like trash.
    Go in professionally dressed.
    Management will see you applying. If they see you all trashy, don't expect to get hired.
    Remove all ear rings, and other piercings make yourself look clean.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Publix (Orlando, FL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    A lot of interrogative questions, long and tedious, kind of ridiculous, and overall a waste of time. A lot of questions were biased and designed to set you up for failure.
