I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at ALDI.
The beginning process was at a job fair where you fill out the application and then turn it in once you are finished. They interview you on the spot in front of everyone asking basic questions I guess to get a feel for your demeanor and whether you will be called back in a few days for real interview.

I applied in-person – interviewed at ALDI in July 2014.
Open Interview, showed up 15 minutes early, resume and application in hand, dressed in a suit. Interviewer was in a full suit. Of the 8 or so that were early, I was the only one that was prepared, and not dressed in shorts/jeans and tank top/tshirt and flip flops. Ad specifically asked for application to be filled out prior. "Interview" lasted less than two minutes. Introduction, Can you work 40 hours?, Did you graduate high school? Do you have transportation? and can you lift over 40lbs? Answer yes, to all. "Great well it looks like you are qualified, We will be calling for interviews this evening" and that was it. Next guy after me was out the door before i was able to get to my car.

I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at ALDI in July 2014.
Three interviews total which I thought was a little bit overkill. I submitted an in person written application with my own printed one attached. I got a call, came in and talked with the DM. Then another in person with the manager, and a final with the DM. Three months it took for the entire process!! I was shocked when they initially called me because it had been so long. Drug test and background checked followed.

I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at ALDI (Philadelphia, PA) in July 2014.
Applied in June 2014 in person, I printed out an application and brought it in with my resume. I walked around the supermarket for a while and observed the workers for a bit just to get a sense of the environment and where I could possibly be working. I talked to the supervisor about the job and responsibilities as well as another employee about the hours and if my application looks good to turn in. I got called in for an interview about 3 week later which was held in the supermarket. It was a 2:1 interview with the district manager and an intern from a college.
The interview process went better then expected it didn't feel like an interview more like a conversation every time I got the chance I threw some questions in there or gave little comments about things that were said to me to let them know I am paying attention. They started off the interview by saying they are not looking for the perfect person just a perfect fit in the store. I brought a little notebook and pencil that I had on my lap during the interview. The day before I researched some of their interview questions and wrote them down with the answers in the back of the book just in case and I also listed about 10 questions I wanted to ask which was good because during the interview some of them were answered but I still had something to work with. While they where looking at my resume I gave them an updated version including work and academic programs I participated in. In total it took about 30 minutes and they showed some interest in my School and major/minor and what I want to do with it, I would say interaction is really important they should not be the only ones talking and every answer should have an explanation so they can continue to see who you really are.
They said to give them a week to call back and if I get called for another interview they would have scenarios for me and a general run down of what they would want me to do and how they expect to act.

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at ALDI (Memphis, TN) in June 2014.
Background: I'm a 25 year-old single woman with years of work experience in physical jobs, and administrative support roles. I relocated to Memphis to finish school, and I just wanted a part-time job for spending money.
I went to an Aldi Hiring event at one of the locations. Be sure to fill out an application in advance, and get there early because the line was out of the door when I left. One of the hiring managers just asked a few basic questions about our abilities and availability before taking our applications and advising that she would call.
I received a call that afternoon to come in for an interview the following week. The interview consisted of routine questions, and it placed a lot of emphasis on the amount of physical work associated with the position. I explained that I had UPS experience, so it wouldn't be an issue, but they kept harping on the physical demands. She actually said "Picture the hardest, most physically demanding job you have ever had, and multiply it by 10." That is NOT how you should sell a job. It was almost like they were purposely trying to turn me away from it.
A day after that interview, I was called in to meet with the regional manager at a store on the opposite side of town. He was very rushed and distracted during the interview, and asked if I thought I could handle the physical requirements. They were the exact same questions that I answered in the previous interview. I felt like I wasted my time and my gas mileage by going there, and I left the interview not caring if I received an offer or not.
I didn't receive an offer, and I think it may be due to the fact that I look over-qualified on paper. I wouldn't know since they didn't have the decency to call.

I applied in-person. The process took 6 days – interviewed at ALDI (Danville, KY) in April 2014.
Saw an ad for a hiring event at a local ALDI so I went out, brought my resume and ALDI app. Started 11:30 AM there were about 20 people there by the time it started (with more coming in). Just handed the resume and app to the store manager since the actual hiring manager wasn't there yet, everyone went in a line and took about 3 minutes to answer her questions whether they'd be available, able to lift 50 pds etc. Got a call the next afternoon asking to come in for an interview several days later at 8:30 AM. Showed up, there were only 10-12 people there this time. We all got a tour with the general manager around the store, in the freezer/backroom. Then when back up front and all got 2:1 interviews with the hiring manager and the GM. Asked basic questions, got reminded a lot that there's only two people in the store at a shift, and that you'd basically be doing everything.
