Deli Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Publix in April 2016.

Interview

I was not contacted for weeks about my application and when I called about it I was rudely told "we will call you if you for our standards." I had a family friend contact the store because she is a store manager and that is how I got my interview. I went in for my interview a few days later and I talked to the assistant sore manager and the deli manager.

Great experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Publix (Atlanta, GA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The initial interview went smoothly, though the manager that interviewed me didn't know much about the particular store because she had only recently transferred there. There were hardly any questions beyond the generic, standard questions. Overall, very easy to get through and very easily passed. They do drug test on the spot and there are two phases to the interview.

    I applied at the kiosk a few days ago and received the call today for an interview. It was about 2pm and the manager asked me to come in later tonight around 7pm if possible. I went and the manager was very nice. He took me to his office and began the questions. The interview took about 30 minutes and I was hired on the spot.

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

    Interview

    Kiosk computer application. Called back within two weeks. Brief interview with basic questions suck as "Why do you want to work for this company?". They stressed the conservative look of the store and how old and reputable the company is. They seriously love to talk about the founder.

    Minimum wage. A lot of people apply so they aren't looking to negotiate.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Publix (Weston, FL) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I applied in store at the Job Application Center. I got a call (on a Sunday) about a week after I submitted my application where an interview was set up for that Wednesday. The customer service manager conducted my interview, along with a deli manager who came in for part of it, since I would be working in the deli. However, the process was not much of an interview. After briefly talking about myself for less than five minutes, I was basically told I had the job. The rest of the process involved explaining some of the responsibilities I would have, filling out paperwork, and taking the saliva drug test.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult questions. The only statement I had to respond to was "Tell me about yourself."   Answer Question
