    Corporate Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lakeland, FL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Publix (Lakeland, FL).

    Interview

    Everyone was quite friendly and pleasant. For some reason, however, their interview rooms are difficult to find, even for employees. These rooms are set back away from normal working areas. The lights and air conditioning were off prior to me entering the room, in Florida, in August, wearing a jacket, tie and slacks. I almost fainted from the heat. Seriously. The interview went horribly down hill as all I could think about was trying not to pass out. I can't remember the last time I had to focus on my own breathing. If you interview here during the summer months, see if it's okay to wear flip flops and board shorts or other swim wear.
