    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Publix (Tallahassee, FL) in October 2017.

    Interview

    We spoke about my past experience volunteering, why I decided to apply at publix, my projected school and career path, how much I want to work, etc. Then, when I think she had already decided to offer me the job, she called in the deli manager and all three of us spoke about what a typical day at the deli might be like. They talked about how there are many safety procedures for food and cleanliness, which I appreciated them putting an importance on. Overall, it was a very simple interview. After about 45 minutes, she offered me a job, which I accepted. Then I filled out a couple forms and did a saliva collection for a drug test.

    Programmer Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Publix (Lakeland, FL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online for the position. A few days later after applying I was selected to take an at home assessment that is essentially an IQ test, with some questions designed to test a programmers mindset (think if else statements). After taking the test I was scheduled for an in person interview. The interview was a group of people on the team I would be applying for. They asked mostly technical questions to which you just had to verbally respond, no whiteboarding or coding in person. Most questions were web based and if you know a decent amount of basic to intermediate web programming knowledge you will be in good shape. See questions I listed below.
