Average Interview

Application

Quick interview drug test shortly after. Not much to it after the first online test. Good company if you want to move up with them. But can be very stressful.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Publix (Jacksonville, FL) in October 2008.

    Interview

    One interview with assistant manager and I was hired because the store manager was out on vacation. I went in to a store in the area I wanted to work and was hired by one about 10 miles away. They were very upfront with how things operated but their scheduling practices were not relayed well. They basically expect you to be available for any schedule with very little notice if you want to be full time.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Publix (Columbia, SC) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Its a bit militant and Publix culture is sold by each manager that interviews you. They have a prepared process that you quickly realize is the way that Publix wants it presented. You will kind of be asked similar questions by each manager that interviews you. It will seem really inviting, kind of like misery loves company.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Publix (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    It took about 2 weeks from applying to hearing back. By the way the application is so stupid. It takes about 45 to 50 minutes to complete the application. Honestly, I think if you can make it through the application process, they will pretty much give you an interview. Questions are vague and are the sort of questions that an interviewer would ask. Once I got the interview, I was interviewed by two managers; assistant manager and the head manager. I think there goal was to see if I had half a brain because you can tell they know who they are going to hire before you walk into the interview.

    Essentially, publix is a family oriented and private business and they want people they think will get along with the staff so play the part. Be polite when meeting and introducing yourself to all staff, before your interview ask questions to the supervisors so they know you are candidate who is interested as opposed to others.
