    Cashier/Bagger Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Publix (Sarasota, FL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I completed my on-line application at the University/Tuttle store in Sarasota Fl on 06/30/17. The kiosk directed me to the Customer Service desk as there were openings at this store. The representative at the counter told me that there were no openings in produce and told me they would retain my application on file for 30 days. Prior to applying, I was told by an employee to ask for the store manager after completing the application. I asked for the manager and was told he was on his break; he happened to be in line and he asked me how much produce experience I had, and I responded that I had 4 years experience. He also asked how many hours I was interested in working and I responded that I would like 24 hours weekly. He told me that he is very busy with the upcoming 4th of July weekend but would pull my application and contact me the following mid-week. I never heard from him.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Publix in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through the JAC at the store in Bellevue. About 3 weeks later I got a call from a lady who worked at the Belle MEADE store (which isn't too far away but a different location) and she asked me to come in for an interview. I came in and I was asked a couple easy questions and they had me do the drug test then and there and when I was done I was told that I was hired and I would start about a week later. I'm 14 years old and a freshman girl. Overall it was pretty easy and the lady interviewing me was very nice. My advice would be to make sure to make eye contact and listen to what they say to you and make sure you don't just answer with "yes" or "no" but explain your answers! Good luck!
