Positive Experience
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.

    Filled out application on computer located within the store and received a call about a month later from the produce manager.

The process was comfortable and easy, like talking to a friend I'd known for a while.

    Easy Interview

    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.
