Job Spotlight: Talent Acquisition

by Jazmyn M. | January 13, 2020

Ever wonder who hires the more than 200,000 people who work at Publix? Our managers do, with a lot of help from retail staffing specialists and the corporate recruiting team. Together, they vet job candidates to ensure we’re hiring the right people for the right jobs in the Southeastern United States.

Welcome back to our job spotlight series! Did you know we have an entire team of talent acquisition professionals dedicated to sourcing, attracting and recruiting the right talent to join the Publix family? We are excited to introduce you to our talent acquisition team.

Staffing our stores.

Our retail staffing specialists partner with retail leadership and several community organizations to strategize ways to keep our stores fully staffed and, in turn, make sure our customers are happy. They coordinate job fairs for new store openings and established stores with hiring needs. They also facilitate internal recruiting events that focus on our promote-from-within culture. We have staffing specialists dedicated to each of our five divisions throughout the Southeast, along with a seasonal staffing specialist who supports our seasonal hiring program across the  company. It’s safe to say this team works hard to ensure our stores are fully staffed and our management teams feel supported.

Staffing our support areas.

The corporate recruiting team helps staff our behind-the-scenes operations in our corporate offices, warehouses and manufacturing facilities. From brand marketing managers and warehouse selectors to real estate specialists and industrial maintenance technicians, and every role in between, our corporate recruiters help keep our support areas running like a well-oiled machine so they can support our stores, which in turn can  serve our customers.
