Part Time Cashier Interview

Anonymous Employee in Rock Hill, SC
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Publix (Rock Hill, SC) in August 2015.

Interview

Very informal and laid back, I was taken into a computer room and asked about my basic personality.. Once she decided to hire me, she did a mouth swab for a drug test. She was happy with my customer service experience, positive attitude, and big smile. After filling out the application, I caught a manager and spoke to them face to face before they gave me an interview, talking to a manager helped get my foot in the door for sure. They are also impressed by appropriate dress (no shorts or flip flops)

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Publix (Margate, FL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Having a friend working and telling me his experience at Publix, I decided to give it a shot and applied. I went to the in-store kiosk and applied for an entry level job due to my age (16) . Right after, I introduced myself to the assistant manager and was about to hand in my resume to her; however, she told me to give it to the head manager who was in charge of hiring. The store manager was not available that day so the assistant manager told me to come back that Tuesday. Two days later I revisited and again she was there but she was in an important phone conference so one of the store managers decided she would take my resume from me and give it to her another time. Later that night, my friend who worked at that publix told me that the manager was out of town so here I am waiting for her to call back so I can schedule an appointment with her.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Publix (Wilmington, NC) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process took about a month and it was really easy. I went to a job fair for publix and applied for a cashier/bagger/stock job. I did a group interview/ activity when i applied a week later I was called for an interview for the following next week. Pretty basic question just make sure your answers are genuine and not practiced. Within 48 hours I was called back for a second interview ( job offers) the following week. I got the job and I had to do the paperwork and drug testing .

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Publix (Delray Beach, FL) in June 2018.

    Interview

    I completed an application at the kiosk inside the store. Got a call 3 days later for an interview. Met with the AM, answered easy questions, such as '' why do you want to work at Publix. '' afterward, got called back to talk to the manager. Again, easy questions. I thought both interviews went well and being a new retiree, thought I was going to get an offer. After being g told I would hear something in 3 days, no call came. I never heard back from them. I was very disappointed. The least they could have done was drop me an email.
