    Positive Experience
    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.

    Customer Service Staff Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Publix.

    Interview

    I had been looking at two Publix stores and I understand that the hiring process is a tedious and stressful process, but I felt like they could have done better. I talked to the manager at one Publix and she told me they would call the next week. I gave them a week and half understanding that it was a busy time. I called to restate my eagerness to work at Publix and she remembered my name and all and said I'll pull your app. I haven't heard from them at all.
    The second Publix I went to, I only got the interview because I talked to the assistant manager. I had my interview, which wasn't professional. I was scheduled for my interview and the head manager was supposed to interview me and I was told he was in a meeting. I waited for 10 minutes and the assistant manager told the main manager that she would start my interview, expecting him to finish it off. She wasn't prepared for the interview, her pauses between questions was more of what can I ask next versus analyzing my answers. After she talked to me, she had someone ask speak to me, who wasn't the manager.
    When everything was over and done, she said I will call you within the hour and if not, call me. I gave her two hours to call because she was busy when I arrived. When I called, I was told she was on cash register and that she would call me the next day (today) at five. It is after 7, and hadn't heard a thing. I decided not to call because I don't want to be a pest after I called yesterday.
    I understand forgetting things, but the fact that I was given times and did not receive a call and my interview was unprofessional really made me skeptical. I was really looking forward to working at Publix.
