Interviewed at ALDI
Interview Details – Rush and intense interview to a college students. The interview itself is not difficult, but the interviewer talks super fast and tried to rush my answer. I should have kept my pace though. I believe different interviewers have different styles.

Very Difficult Interview
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ALDI in December 2011.
Interview Details – I heard about the position through my University and spoke to a couple of people until I got invited to the pre-night dinner, where they provided us with dinner and a presentation on the company and answered our questions. I went to that and the next day was my interview. The 1 on 1 interviews were about to be no longer than 15 minutes (which, i though was insufficient) but mine ended being about 40 minutes. I loved the individuals and their energy. I know many say it is a lot of hard work but I think it depended on the personality and how much of a challenge they wanted. The following week (4 days later), I got a call inviting me to the final round interview. It was a whole day filled with 1 on 1 interviews (6 specifically), a tour of the distribution center and a local Aldi, essay questions and a simple IQ exam. At the end of the week, I received a call extending me an offer.
Negotiation Details – There's really nothing much to negotiate on besides that of your location-maybe. The starting salary is 70,000 and it would basically be considered an insult if you tried to negotiate that.
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ALDI in November 2011.
Interview Details – Applied through my University's Career Center. The job description & benefits are very impressive for the minimum hiring requirements. I attended a mandatory pre-interview group dinner session. The 1:1 interview was overall a positive experience, nothing out of the ordinary. They are big on questions about theft. Almost all of the time was devoted to the interviewer asking you questions.
Interview Question – What would you do if you saw an employee steal a candy bar? Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 4 days - interviewed at ALDI in February 2011.
Interview Details – I met the Director of something or other at a college career fair and got an interview with them the following day. They had a presentation that night about going over things about Aldi and making sure that we knew what we were getting ourselves into if we are offered the position. The next day was the 1:1 interview with him and he met me on time and was very professional throughout the interview. Nothing too spectacular about the interview, though I did felt like it went really well, but I got an email a few days later saying they were not going to pursue the interview process with me at that time.
Interview Question – What are your weaknesses? Answer Question
The process took 1 week - interviewed at ALDI in February 2012.
Interview Details – Made it through first interview easily. I couldn't make the second interview time because of a family emergency. Tried to reschedule for another day and they informed me they no longer wanted to interview me. Interviewer came off as being somewhat rude. I completely understood the culture at Aldi and he just didn't seem to pick up on that. It seemed as if everything I said positive about the company in the interview, he would argue it and try to prove me wrong. I have the impression now that there is a very negative culture and mistakes are absolutely not tolerated. Looking back, I'm glad I didn't get the job. Probably wouldn't have been happy. A negative atmosphere and 70-80hrs a week in run down looking grocery stores isn't what comes to mind when I think about a satisfying career.
