    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Publix.

    Attended job fair - which consisted of application/survey and role playing. After a few days I got a call for a second interview, which was a one on one. I was asked a few general questions (why did I want to work for publix, prior job history and what a knew about Publix). Lasted around 5-10 mins. After a few days I was called for a third interview and was told to bring 2 forms of id. I was offered a position and accepted. They did a drug test on the spot and said they would do a background check.
