Cashier/Bagger Interview

Anonymous Employee

Positive Experience

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Publix in June 2017.

Interview

If you want to be noticed by the managers at Publix, you must consistent. Before you apply, go to the customer service desk and ask for the hiring manager. Tell him/her a little about yourself and why you're looking to work at publix. To improve the chances of you being hired, ask them what positions they are trying to fill or spots that may be open, then apply for those specific jobs. Thank the manager for taking some of their time to speak with you and that you're hopeful to hear from them soon. 1-2 days after you've applied it is important to follow up, concerning the status of your job application. Ask to speak the same manager you did, to show initiative. I had followed up 4-5 times, mostly over the phone, once in person. It may feel like you're being annoying, but it really shows the manager that you really want the job. I was eventually given an interview. For the interview: figure out as much as you can about the company; customer value is the core of the business. Be very respectful, professional and vocal. Be prepared to answer simple questions about the company and yourself. At the end of the interview I met with the store manager and I was hired on the spot. I'm also 17 years old.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Publix (Jacksonville, FL) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied at the kiosk and talked to 2 managers that same week. I had many references that were people who worked at the same Publix for years. About a month after I applied, I got called for an interview. The interview was very easy. The hiring manager was extremely friendly and didn't make it feel like an interview at all. She asked a few simple questions and then we spent the rest of the interview just talking about different things.

    Interview

    Interview overall was smooth & easy-going. The manager actually spoke a bit more than me, so I wasn't as shook up about it. I have a second interview this coming Monday, so I'm guessing I got the job! This is my first job, so I'm very anxious and excited at the same time! Good luck guys.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Publix (Orlando, FL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Had an initial 30min interview with the store manager which as far as I could tell went great. I was told I'd get a call back before the end of the week to let me know either way. I never got a call. I called back daily asking about the status of my application and after another week got a "second interview", which it turned out was for a different position as initially they were interviewing me for the deli, apparently, and I didn't get that job. Second interview was around 30min repeated all the same questions and explanations of policy and again I felt it went great (in spite of some inappropriate negativity by the interviewer, such as complaining about the company and stating that she thought the minimum wage position I was applying for was overpaid and should be eliminated). I was told that she had only one more person to interview and that I would get a call back by 2 today with an answer. Around 4 I got a call telling me that she went with the other candidate but that since she already interviewed me she "could" just give me the next opening she had come available.

    I'm a retail experienced recent college graduate with friends who work for or have worked for Publix. If anything I feel over qualified for the part time minimum wage position I was applying to. I always heard such great things about Publix, but my personal experience left a pretty bad taste in my mouth.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Publix (Lawrenceville, GA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied the Tuesday and the following week I was called for and Interview the following Friday. I am normally terrified of interviews but this was so easy and the thing that helped me was research. I did my research on the company, and during my interview my interviewer /manager was impressed. He said I was the first person that he had interviewed that actually did the research. And also when he asked do I have any questions for him, and I did. And these are all tips we've all heard of and another person on here gave these tips and I followed and it went well. So make sure you ask questions, not just for show but things you really want to know about the job and what is expected of you when you start working. Also they love a good story, especially personal experience. And remember publix takes pride in their customers, always ensure you talk about the value of serving customers and the standard. After The Interview The Following Day I Was Called Back For A Second Interview Which Turned Out To Be Getting Drug Tested. Also when you are going for drug test you shouldn't eat or drink anything for at least 10 mins prior to going in. After the test we were given a little tour of break room, restroom, and where to clock in. After that 2 days later I was called saying my drug test and background check was clear and I had pre -orientation 2 days later. Then the following Saturday would be orientation.

    Interview

    It was very short. Basic questions. Informal. Friendly discussion with the assistant customer service manager. I made sure to show up early with resumes. It was more of a get to know session than an interview. Questions included: what is premier customer service? Tell me a little about yourself. How would you deal with an angry customer service?
