    Produce Warehouse Selector Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Publix (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    I don’t remember when I sent in the application but once I interviewed, I was hired about a month later. Candidates are required to take a drug test and a physical agility test. The PAT test was extremely simple and lasted no longer than about ten minutes.

    Publix selectors are paid based on their selecting performance and also have no limit to how much they make. So the faster and more efficiently you work, more you make. The job isn’t hard, but it isn’t easy either. The training was about $13 an hour until you sign for performance based pay. Also this position has a high turnover rate because of the physicality but it’s a good job considering what they pay.

    Also it’s very easy to move around Publix if you don’t like the position. Also long as you show effort, management will help you find a position/department to work in.

    Grocery Associate Interview

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

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Publix (Ocala, FL) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I filled out an application and spoke with a manager. He gave me a call back within the hour and had be come back in later that day to interview. The interview was with him and the grocery manager. They were incredibly pleasant to speak with and wanted to know a lot about who I was as a person. Unlike any other interview I've had before, in a great way. They both agreed to hire me and I completed a mouth swab drug test. Only reason I didn't end up working there is because I was offered a full-time job at another company.

    Corporate Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lakeland, FL

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Publix (Lakeland, FL).

    Interview

    Everyone was quite friendly and pleasant. For some reason, however, their interview rooms are difficult to find, even for employees. These rooms are set back away from normal working areas. The lights and air conditioning were off prior to me entering the room, in Florida, in August, wearing a jacket, tie and slacks. I almost fainted from the heat. Seriously. The interview went horribly down hill as all I could think about was trying not to pass out. I can't remember the last time I had to focus on my own breathing. If you interview here during the summer months, see if it's okay to wear flip flops and board shorts or other swim wear.
