    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lakeland, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Publix (Lakeland, FL) in December 2016.

    Interview

    First Recruiter call was pleasent followed by another call from senior recruiter setting up the technical assessment which followed by panel interview over skype.
    Technical assessment included some of the worst questions I have seen for JAVA which are purely memory based and about Swing and Gotcha questions. IQ test should be fine and is pretty easy,

    Skype interview was setup for next week with 2 member technical panel. I might be biased but their focus was not at all in interview. I think this has to do with some production bug they had which resulted in interview getting rescheduled. Asking about what I am working on currently was the first question followed by only other difference between "Checked and Unchecked Exception" which I did answered correctly (Giving example of Arithmetic Exception vs IOException and the generic reason behind it) asked for Senior Technical Lead role . No further question asked. No further question needed as well. Recruiter was swift in providing the result but without any feedback.

    Grocery Clerk/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jacksonville, FL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Publix (Jacksonville, FL) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Well, I came in ten minutes early since they emphasize being early and prepared. So, with my resume in hand and being "dressed for success" I went in to the Customer Service desk. The Grocery Manager was in the middle of an interview so I was told to wait ten minutes on a bench. About twenty minutes later, the service guy got me and brought me back to the desk. But the manager was busy again with training, apparently the Assistant Manager who called me in did not inform her of all the interviews. I was told to wait another ten minutes, then the Customer Service Manager interviewed me instead. The interview went easy afterwards, and the manager was very friendly. It felt like a conversation rather than an interview. He told me he might steal me as a Cashier instead of me being a Grocery Clerk. I'll be getting a call on Thursday they said, hopefully it'll be to schedule a second interview.
