    Easy Interview


    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Publix.


    Very brief interview. Introduced myself to the Asst. Store Manager before I turned in an application and I had an interview scheduled within 2 days. Wasn’t as much of an interview as it was more of questions about when I could start and what my schedule was like. It was obvious I was going to get the job.
