    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Publix (Lakeland, FL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The hiring process consisted of a two hour personality test and a one hour interview. It was not long enough to get to know the position or the company. The interview was way too short.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Publix (Margate, FL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Having a friend working and telling me his experience at Publix, I decided to give it a shot and applied. I went to the in-store kiosk and applied for an entry level job due to my age (16) . Right after, I introduced myself to the assistant manager and was about to hand in my resume to her; however, she told me to give it to the head manager who was in charge of hiring. The store manager was not available that day so the assistant manager told me to come back that Tuesday. Two days later I revisited and again she was there but she was in an important phone conference so one of the store managers decided she would take my resume from me and give it to her another time. Later that night, my friend who worked at that publix told me that the manager was out of town so here I am waiting for her to call back so I can schedule an appointment with her.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Publix (Rock Hill, SC) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Very informal and laid back, I was taken into a computer room and asked about my basic personality.. Once she decided to hire me, she did a mouth swab for a drug test. She was happy with my customer service experience, positive attitude, and big smile. After filling out the application, I caught a manager and spoke to them face to face before they gave me an interview, talking to a manager helped get my foot in the door for sure. They are also impressed by appropriate dress (no shorts or flip flops)

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Publix (Orlando, FL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Interview seemed very straight forward. They were more curious about my ability to handle cash, do math, treat customers with respect, etc. Also, they wanted to know more about my schedule and when I would be available since my job is part time. Overall, it's not a hard interview. I felt very comfortable with the whole interview and just answered the questions honestly. It seems that Publix just wants honest employees who are willing to be team players and work hard.
