Store Manager Trainee Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tully, NY

Application Details

I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at ALDI in October 2014.

Interview Details

Dropped off an application at store and was called by district manager for an interview. After the interview I made contact a few times by dropping a letter at the store saying thank you and reminding him that I continue to be interested. Called for a second interview a month later. Both interviews asked me to talk about my previous work experience and several "tell me about a time..." type questions. The first seemed to be focused on job skills and the second on leadership ability.

    Store Manager Trainee Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at ALDI in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    He talked sooooooo fast asking questions that you felt like you had to respond back talking fast as well or he just wasn't interested. It was weird. To me it felt like he was intimidated by me and felt threatened that I potentially wanted to take his job. Just felt like a very odd interview to me. Was not very professional in my opinion.

    • He just asked to explain the very first job to your current job and asked questions in between.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at ALDI in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Process took a month and that was for two parts of the four part interview process. They seem to string a candidate along. This company probably loses countless prospects because they drag their feet. If you have limited retail experience you will not be considered. A giant waste of your time because they seem unwilling to train and really believe that managing an ALDI location is difficult.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at ALDI in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Aldi had a hiring event at Destiny USA. I went expecting to be interviewed. I also expected lots of others. Both were true. We all stood in a line and one by one proceeded up to an open counter and handed in resume/ application. There were several questions asked but nothing but general questions. Lots of folks didn't even bring a resume.

    Store Manager Trainee Interview

    Interview Details

    Was recruited by a DM. He told me to go visit a couple of stores and get back with him to set up a formal interview. And if that 1st interview goes well he would pass me onto the Director of my area. O I think normally it would be a 3 stage interview process but if you are being recruited it will be a 2 stage interview process. If you are not being recruited you have to attend one of their job fairs that the advertise in the paper and on Craigslist.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at ALDI in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    The store manager called me in for an interview after I hand delivered an app and my resume a week prior. It literally took five minutes. Easy as pie. I was under the impression that I was being interviewed for a mgr trainee position since it was the only thing I put on my app, and I have mgt experience. The store manager asked me if i was willing to start as a cashier though.. Kind of upsetting since it would've been a demotion for me and I still wonder why she called me in the first place.. Plus since the interview was so short, makes me kind of feel like she knew she wasnt going to hire me anyway.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ALDI in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    The 1st 2 interviews were with the district managers at a store location. One interview was a sit down, and the other was a store walkthrough. Both interviews were very straight forward and they ask many questions about your current job. A 3rd interview was help at the home office of the area.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at ALDI in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through career builder, received an email just a couple days later. I was able to schedule an initial 1 on 1 interview with the district manager a few days after that. He had me fill out an application and then he proceeded to ask me a few general background questions, then the basic "why ALDI" and questions like that. Was informed I'd receive a call back the following Monday if they were interested in another interview.

    District manager explained the position, the hours, pay, etc, and then explained the hiring process. Overall, no complaints about the process.
