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.

    They called me in for an interview and it took place with the Produce manager and the Assistant store manager. They mainly asked about general basic stuff and why I was leaving my job for Publix. I was offered a job on the spot and went into another room to do an oral drug test.

    Negotiation

    They just said they were willing to hire me and asked if I had any questions, at the time I didn't think of it but I should have asked for pay, because after me being uncomfortable for a couple seconds the assistant store manager said they would start me 20 cents above minimum wage.
