If you’re looking for a career in grocery retail, have you ever thought about filling out one of the Publix job applications? With over 1000 stores in South Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida, Publix is a great choice if you want to find work in this industry.
Make Your Publix Application Stand Out
It’s easy to fill out the Publix job application online, but I would recommend visiting the store of your choice first before you submit your application. By doing so, you can introduce yourself to the management staff and have a better chance of getting hired. Why? Simply because people love hiring people they know something about. If you simply submit an application online all you are is a number in the system. By contrast, if you visit them in person, you can strike some sort of connection and when you follow up it will be that much easier to make contact with the management staff to check on the status of your application.
Here are some of the jobs available and ones you may want to consider when you’re submitting your Publix application online:
- Store associate – this is an entry-level job that encompasses many different types of positions including stock clerks, lot attendants, working in the deli, etc. To work these positions you really don’t have to have any experience at all; you just have to have a positive mindset and a little bit of enthusiasm! Publix does accept job applications for minors but you you need to check with your state requirements as far as the minimum age which is usually somewhere around 15 years of age. The pay for an entry-level store associate is usually somewhere around minimum wage.
- Many Publix stores have pharmacies and you may want to consider a job as a pharmacy technician or a pharmacist. A pharmacy technician at Publix make somewhere the neighborhood of $9-$14 an hour, depending on the location. No matter how you slice it, a pharmaceutical career can lead you on a path to a fruitful career especially when it comes to taking a job in the pharmacy department.
Publix also needs qualified people to join their team as store managers. This is not an easy position to land. However, once you do, you can earn anywhere in the range of $50,000-$100,000 a year in salary. This position entails handling the day-to-day store operations and overseeing productive employees. With it comes a responsibility also of scheduling employees, training new hires, and anything else that will benefit the store as far as clerical work.
The Publix benefits package is comparable to any other major retail store out there. You get paid time off, a 401(k) plan, comprehensive health care coverage, plenty of holiday bonuses, a ton of training opportunities, and stock purchasing plans.
