    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jacksonville, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Publix (Jacksonville, FL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring manager was very polite, attentive and straight to the point. I was asked the standard questions of "Where do you see yourself in 10 years," and "What would you like to get out of your career," so on and so forth. I was drug tested as is the standard and it only took a few seconds. Nothing was uncomfortable, the interview was as relaxed as an interview could be but still maintained a professional tone throughout.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Publix (Orlando, FL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    A lot of interrogative questions, long and tedious, kind of ridiculous, and overall a waste of time. A lot of questions were biased and designed to set you up for failure.

    Loader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Publix in May 2017.

    Interview

    My interview was at 9:00 pm I was told to park and then walk to the building where they held interviews, after I got there I looked around but I couldn't find anyone then I noticed a sign on the door that says interviewers please come in. I signed in sat down in an empty room and waited until about 9:15 for my interview to begin. Basic job functions were gone over but the interviewer made it pretty clear that he didn't believe I had the knowledge or experience for the job and after walking around the loading area and observing I admitted it would be difficult and ideally that wasn't something I wanted to do long term.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Publix (Birmingham, AL) in November 2016.

    The interview for the store i work at was different from other other interviews. We walked throughout the store and talked as if the hr was trying to get know me as an individual and as potential employee. It was really laid back. I was offered the job. I went to my orientation class a few days later. Orientation consisted of about 25 other new employees.
