How to Apply in Stores
Join Our Store Team!
So you'd like to work in one of the hourly positions in our stores, but you're not sure what options you have? First, take a look at the Job Description Chart to familiarize yourself with more than 15 different choices. Play our Supermarket Quiz if you want to have some fun learning about what our associates do. Then check out the Store Locator to determine at which Publix you would most like to work.
How to Apply
When you've decided which positions interest you and which Publix is the most convenient for you, go to that store and look for the Job Application Center. The JAC, as we call it, is usually located at the front of the store.
You must apply in person to be considered for any non-management position in our stores.
The JAC allows you to apply for non-management positions, regardless of whether there is an opening at the store where you apply. That's because managers at nearby Publix stores - where there may be openings - can view your application. Therefore, you don't need to submit an application at any other Publix.
You are also allowed to apply at the JAC for skilled positions like Baker, Decorator and Meat Cutter, if you have experience in those skills. Best of all, you can apply for more than one position - in fact, you can apply for all of the positions that interest you.
Why We Want You to Apply in Person
We ask people who want to work in our stores to apply in person, at a store, for three reasons.
- We want job seekers to have the opportunity to speak with a person if they have questions about working at Publix or about our application process.
- We prefer that job seekers experience the environment in our stores before deciding whether Publix is a good fit for them and whether they are a good fit for us.
- We want to know if someone is nearby and ready to work.
