    Senior Training Developer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Publix.

    Interview

    The interviewing process was very drawn out. After completing the application, I received an email to schedule a phone interview. During the phone interview, they scheduled a second phone interview. A few days after the second phone interview, I received an email to schedule a home-based screening exercise. This exercise was a document with nine scenarios, and I had to develop training solutions or describe past experiences with similar scenarios. Then, a week or so later, I received an email to schedule on-site testing. During the on-site testing, I spent an entire work day at the corporate office completing various tests and tasks. The entire process took 4-6 weeks. After the onsite testing, I never received any other communication from the hiring manager. I had to continuously check back into the Publix application portal to see that I was not selected for the job. (This information was not available until 2-3 weeks after I completed all interview stages.)

    Cashier/Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Murrells Inlet, SC

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Publix (Murrells Inlet, SC) in March 2017.

    Interview

    This was for a new Publix opening soon. I initially went to their hiring event/job fair where I filled out an application and then we were taken in groups of 4 to another room, where a manager spoke to us about working there. Three days later, I got a call asking if I could come back for a formal interview. The interview was fine - he asked about me, my interests, and my background. The interviewer was very nice and I felt at ease. He said they got a lot of applications during the hiring event and that they will make decisions this week, and will call people this weekend if they're picked.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Publix.

    Interview

    You get called and interviewed within a few days. The questions I answered focused on remembering tasks by telling me a list of things and repeating them to the interviewer perfectly. Also questions like why do you want the job, tell me about yourself, and would I be willing to do certain jobs. There was only one interview and within a week I was contacted for the job. After an arduous drug and alcohol test as well as a 5 hour class to learn the basics of the job and a few online training modules, it took about a month to start officially working at Publix.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want the job?   Answer Question
    • You might be tasked with several jobs before closing the store for the day, such as mop, wash, and clean the floors, clean the bathrooms, count register tills, block the aisles and lock the front door. Now repeat to me the tasks I just told you.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Publix (Statesville, NC) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I made an appointment at a job fair for their new location and they put me on the computer to do my application. The guy there told me that if they would give me a call in a few days if they wanted to interview me. I got a call telling me they wanted me to come in for an interview. The guy that interviewed me was super nice and genuine. He really calmed my nerves and we talked for about 5 minutes about random stuff before the interview even started. Then he said they will give me a call back if I got the job. I got a call back a few days later asking to meet for a second interview so they can get my information.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Publix (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I got the interview a week after I applied. The store you applied for may not be the store you will get so keep that in mind. The interview was simple. The hiring manager wanted to know more about you and asked you questions about how you would deal with the customers. There are plenty of room to ask questions. I was hired on the spot, while for others they call you back.
