Job Application Center
JAC is a friend to people who want to work in our stores. "He" walks you through the employment application process. JAC, short for Job Application Center, is actually a kiosk with a touch-screen system. A keyboard is also provided so you can type information into the automated application. See a picture of the JAC to the right.
On average, applicants spend 45 minutes with JAC — 20 minutes completing the personal information section and 25 minutes completing a questionnaire. You can save time on the first section if you do your homework before you go to apply.
- First, review the Job Description Chart to know which positions interest you.
- Second, print this JAC Time Saver and fill it out ahead of time. You can refer to it while you are at the JAC.
You also have the option of completing the first part of the employment application on one day and returning to the store sometime within the next 6 days to complete the second part (the questionnaire).
The Face of JAC

JAC communicates in English. If you have difficulty reading or writing in English, you can bring someone to help you through the application process.
Updating Your Application
Your application will remain active for 30 days. The last screen on the JAC will provide the expiration date so you can write it down. You will be contacted if managers at any of our stores want to interview you.
If you haven't been contacted by the time your application expires, you must update the application to be considered for new openings. You can update your application at any time, and you can do so at any store, not just the one where you first submitted your application. The updating process is quick. Bring your log-in name and password with you. Once you sign into the system, you have to answer a few questions and you are good for another 30 days. (You must use the exact name and password you used when you first applied.)
You cannot retake the questionnaire portion of the application process for 6 months, so be as careful as possible when completing that the first time around.
If you have any difficulties while working with JAC, or if you have questions about working at Publix, please go to the Customer Service desk at the front of the store. Associates there will help answer your questions.
