Cha-Cha-Change is Here!

Current Openings ScreencaptureWe’re excited about a recent change made to enhance our job seekers’ experience when applying for open positions!  We’re transitioning our Publix Jobs Center to a new system that should deliver a more fluid experience and offer external candidates the convenience of signing-in to the system using their Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter accounts.

During this transition, you’ll see that our jobs page has changed, starting with the Distribution, Manufacturing, and Industrial Maintenance jobs.  That’s because we’re posting new positions for these areas in this redesigned Publix Jobs Center.  Previously listed positions for these areas and all Corporate jobs remain posted on our original Publix Jobs Center site.

Here is something that’s really important – it’s a big change from the original system.  Once you submit an application on the new system and you’re found to meet the required qualifications of the job, you’re going to receive email communications from Publix.  Emails will contain instructions that you MUST complete in order for your application to move forward to additional screening steps.  If you have applied on the new site, please check your email, including your spam folder, daily for any communication from Publix!

Here’s what you need to know to search for our open jobs for the next few months during the transition period.

  • We have links to both the new and original Publix Jobs Center on our website.
  • If you’re a Publix associate, you should use the links within the Publix Associates row.  Log in to PASSport > Personal > Career & Self Development for login instructions.
  • If you’re not a Publix associate, you should use the links within the Non-Associates row.   You’ll create your user name (email) and password in the new system or sign-in via LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter.  If you forget your user name or password, use the links on the login page.

The new system looks a lot different!  Here are some tips and reminders for you if you submit an application on the new system.

Create your profile within the “Edit your profile” link from your personal account.  Once you do that, your information can be pulled into each application you submit.  Bear in mind, the information from the original system won’t be transferred to the new system – but you’ll only have to enter it one time in the new system.

  • You MUST check your email daily for notification of your application status AND to complete additional requirements in order to move your application forward to the next screening step.
  • You can check the status of your application within the “Job submission status” link from your personal account.
  • Here’s what we think will be the best advantage for you, the job seeker:  Don’t see the opening you’re looking for?  You can:
  1. Create a job search agent by clicking on “Search agent manager” in your account
  2. Drop off your resume by clicking on the “Submit resume/CV” link on the new Publix Jobs Center login page.  There will be more on why this is good in a future blog post.
  3. As mentioned earlier, external applicants can link their Publix Jobs Center accounts to their Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn accounts for login purposes which makes logging into the system easy.

If you have any questions or trouble, please let us know by commenting on this blog!  No questions?  What are you waiting for?  Start searching for your Publix career by visiting our website now!

    Marcy,

    Greetings. I have applied for a position at the Lakeland, Florida Corporate Office. Soon after, I received 2 automated responses, one for the background check and the other for the criminal history release. I have read some of the replys given to posters on this site and they have contained the email addresses of people to contact directly in the particular HR department to where they applied. Is this something that is acceptable? If so, I would appreciate the email address for the person at the Lakeland, Florida Corporate Office that would be responsible for the position entitled, “Manager of Pharmacy Technology”. The job requisition ID is 1238BR.
    This is such a well done site and I have learned a great deal by reading the replies given on so many topics.
    Thank you so much for any information you can supply,

    Regards,

    John Lee, R.Ph.

    Hello,

    Thank you so much for this thread. I, too, am most impressed with the application process, blog and resources for candidates for employment. I have recently applied for a “Training Specialist – Birmingham” position, req #1254BR. I would love to correspond with someone directly responsible for this position to ascertain more information.

    That would be most helpful!

      Hi Marcia, thank you for your kind words! Our hiring managers have a myriad of other duties and roles in addition to building their teams, making it impossible to speak with each candidate applying. It may help answer some of your questions if you check out this link: http://corporate.publix.com/careers/support-areas/corporate/departments/human-resources. It offers some information about the HR department and some of the roles within. In just a few week’s time, we’ll be unwrapping an exciting new feature that may help you further, but we’re sworn to secrecy until announcing it on our Twitter Chat at our @Publix handle on May 18, from 6-8 p.m. If you are on Twitter, think about joining us there!
