Me personally I had 3 interviews ... 3rd interview was the hiring part and got drug tested . The managers that interviewed me were very cool and laid back . Asked about me and where I came from , what I liked to do for fun . They kind of remind me of my old coworkers from when I worked at Safeway . And they were very welcoming . The best part in the first interview I had , I had it with Larry . He was very kind to help find a closer location to my house for me which was extremely cool . That shows me Publix takes care of their employees .

I never got a real interview. I went to the job fair for an opening Publix, and was asked to perform a mini customer service skit in front of some regional managers (but they’re always shifting around and changing). My “interview” with the customer service manager (I was hired as a cashier / bagger / front end coordinator) lasted five minutes and I was asked “what would your friends say is your biggest strength”. There really wasn’t an interview at all, but you’ll get raises if you form a relationship with the managers and you’re a friendly person to the right people.

It all depend on the manger you get, I knew cake decanting but the manager I got acted like I didn't know anything. And I had to start out bagging bread.
