After You Apply at Publix

Publix associates

Thank you for taking the time to apply to join the Publix family! Now that you’ve taken the first step, we hope you take the opportunity to learn more about careers at Publix. We recommend reading some of our blogs on The Publix Checkout.

We are looking forward to reviewing your application. In the meantime, here’s what you can expect throughout your candidate experience.

Our Stores

If you’ve applied to work at any of our store locations, remember to update your application every 30 days to remain active in our system. Due to the volume of applications our store managers receive, only candidates who are selected for an interview will be contacted.

Check out some of our tips on landing a job at your local Publix.

It’s important to keep in mind that our store managers are contacting candidates by phone, not email. If you’ve applied for a job at a store, please make sure your voicemail box is active and able to receive messages, in case you are not able to answer the store’s call.

Our Non-Retail Areas

If you’ve applied to work within any of our corporate offices, distribution centers, or manufacturing facilities, or if you’ve applied to a retail pharmacist role, you will be updated on the status of your application via email and/or phone call. Please be sure to monitor your email inbox (including your spam folder) and voicemail, daily.

Once you’ve completed your application, you will receive a confirmation email. Following that communication, you will receive a follow-up email to let you know whether or not you met the minimum requirements for the position.

If you met the initial requirements, you’ll receive an update indicating whether or not you’ve been selected to move forward in the process. Our hiring managers look for the most qualified candidates to invite for testing and/or interviews.

If it takes some time to receive an update, don’t worry. Our managers are carefully reviewing each application they’ve received. You can monitor that status of your application at any time by visiting the Publix Jobs Center.
