    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Publix in June 2012.

    Interview

    Pretty standard interview. No real difficult questions, although for this position they were looking for someone who would work odd hours: 4am to 1pm. I said I was fine with that, but that I was going back to school at the end of the summer, and I think that made them reluctant. I thought I was pretty qualified, but apparently they weren't interested.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Publix in July 2009.

    Interview

    It is fairly easy to get a job at Publix. They sometimes (not always) hire people starting at age 14. I started working at the Destin Publix when I was 15. The application process is automated, and must be done at an in store kiosk. The interview was not too hard either. I didn't even have to rehearse or prepare for it, and I was still hired on the spot (this may be partly because I applied right before the summer season, and it gets BUSY during that time).

    Most of the interview questions were pretty basic, like "Tell me about yourself", "what do you think makes a good employee", "what was the hardest decision you made this year and why", "are you a leader or a follower", "how can you contribute to this store", etc.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Publix (Palm Beach Gardens, FL) in September 2008.

    Interview

    I received a call from the regional HR rep after applying on their intranet application. They expressed interest for an interview which was scheduled immediately for the following week. Prior retail.grocery experience and career interests seemed like their major reasons for following up the application with a 1:1 interview. Professionalism is definitely looked for and appreciated.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Negotiations were made after an initial job offer. Since I would have to travel farther then another local Publix they increase my starting wage to offset the inconvenience and gas costs.

    Interview

    After you get a call back, the store or department manager will interview you personally. They'll do a typical question process determining your personality and work ethic while reviewing your application with you. If they like what they see they'll give you a call back for a second interview. Getting a second interview means you have the job.

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Publix (Huntsville, AL) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Filled out application on computer located within the store and received a call about a month later from the produce manager. He explained the duties of a produce clerk and asked my experience within retail and any grocery experience, and why I might be interested in working with produce. The process was comfortable and easy, like talking to a friend I'd known for a while.
