    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied at the store & got a call that afternoon. The interview was with the store manager. It lasted nearly an hour but was very easy. The manager basically spent the entire time talking about the company & the benefits of working there. The assistant store manager joined in the interview towards the end & he just talked about his own experiance working for publix. It honestly felt like they were trying to talk me into working there.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Publix (Saint Augustine, FL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was short and easy. I was asked several questions about my previous jobs and why I left them. At the time, mass hiring was being completed, so my interview was held at a hotel with several managers conducting interviews at the same time. This was somewhat distracting as other managers were asking questions beside and behind me. However, the manager who interviewed me made eye contact throughout the whole interview and made me feel at ease with the whole process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Publix (Miami, FL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Once you have applied in the store's computer, you need to make sure to refresh your application before the 30 days expire. I did this for about 6 months before I was called for the interview. At the interview, the manager was very professional and direct about the job expectations and the starting pay rate, which is non negotiable and standard for every new hire. The process was easy and I was offered a job the same day. Thank you!!!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Publix (Cumming, GA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Overall process took about two weeks. First interview with Deli Manager was super quick (about 5 minutes maybe), just a few screening questions "availability, qualifications", etc.
    About a week later I went in for the second interview with the Store Manager who basically just described the job description in more detail, again super quick and easy. I did the drug test immediately after in the same office, a mouth swab.
    Another week after that I got called in for orientation and finally got on the floor the following week.

    Negotiation

    I applied for full-time at a different store but the only available position was part-time at a different location. I agreed to this because I had initially put $8.00/hr as my desired pay and they offered $9.50/hr.
