    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at ALDI.

    Interview

    Applied online and met with them at a job fair. Attended an open house recruiting event where myself and about 15 other candidates toured the store, found out more about the position and training, and was asked questions about the company. Each candidate then met with a current district manager for a mini-interview session. I received a call the next week for 1:1 interview with another district manager. Discussed my experience, answered behavioral type questions, and situation based questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at ALDI (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    The process was very informal a 15 minute on campus interview. He asked me to run down my resume and explain each part of it to him. During this process he interrupted me 4 times telling me that I'm running out of time. He was extremely rude and would not acknowledge me when I tried to shake his hand for the first time. I did not receive an offer which was no surprise. Even if I would have received an offer I would declined just based off of his behavior.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at ALDI.

    Interview

    Behavioral questions, asked why I was interested in Aldi. The guy that interviewed me was stoic and I knew that I was not the best fit for their culture. But other than that he didn't ask any hard questions. Interview lasted for 30 minutes and I was able to ask questions at the end.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at ALDI.

    Interview

    I went to the first "interview". The district manager was kurt in her approach. The district manager has the group of applicants line up in the front of the store, and individually come over to her, handing her our applications with our resume included. She asked if I had any questions, and her answer was short and sort of to the point. When I asked for clarification on the position related to the pay scale, as it seemed to be a dual role (sometimes a cashier and only when needed, as shift supervisor), My question was, "Does the pay rate change with the role served?", and she stated, "Yes." I also inquired when could I expect a response for an interview which she said about 2 weeks. I thanked her and extended my for a handshake, and she told me, "I don't shake hands." Now if you are in the business to recruit people to your business, you must be willing to shake a hand or two, after all, there is such a thing as hand sanitizer! I did notice that she also wrote on the back of each applicant's paperwork as they walked away. Now I know as a manager doing interviews that the interviewer does make notes on each applicant/ interviewee, but it is usually done after the applicant has left and is done as a private action. I felt she was not approachable or maybe she was having a "bad day", but she needed to brush up on her people skills.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at ALDI (Springfield, MO) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It was a quick interview with mainly general personality-based questions. They asked questions like:
    What makes a leader?, How do you define success?, What drew you to ALDI?, What do you like to do in your spare time?, What is one undesirable trait that you have personally witnessed in a manager?, and If hired, what will your employees learn from you?

    I received a letter (by email) notifying me that they would not be extending me an offer the next day.
