    Part Time Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Publix.

    Interview

    You fill out a kiosk application - bring documentation and resume WITH you as you always may get to interview on the spot.

    Next step is Store Manager and Department Manager interview. Your interview sheet is printed and they write notes on it.

    Next step if approved is the IN-STORE saliva drug test. They discontinued the pee test last I saw. Then if you pass and your background investigation passes, then you get hired IF they have room for you.

    Other stores can pull from the hiring pool.

    For Customer Service upgrade interviews they can do a credit check.

    Interview Questions

    • How you handle other people - the more difficult part for some people is the psychological test in the kiosk.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They offer a salary right there and explain that you can qualify for raises every six months that automatically happen if you get a good evaluation. I accepted what they offered which was below $10 per hour but it's worth it to work there.

    Deli Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    It was easy for me to get into Publix because I already had a sister who worked there, and managers are more likely to call you if you're recommended by a current associate. The interview process was very simple - probably no more than 20 minutes. They told me about the job specifics, asked me why I was leaving my current job, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • The manager gave me a list of skills and asked me which one i thought was the most important. I chose "Customer Service skills" (which was the right answer) because Publix values customer service over everything.   Answer Question

    Deli Associate Interview

    Interview

    I was hired as a deli associate for an internship with my school so for the most part I was interviewed differently than a person who was not interviewed for a non paid internship position. My interview was with the Assistant Deli Manager and then the Deli Manager and then the final was the Store Manager.
