Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed 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.

Interview Questions

What would you do if an employee that has been with the company for 10 years with no previous problems took a candy bar when the store was very busy and had intentions to pay for it later? What would you do if a store manager tried to take home a piece of store equipment for a friend to fix it?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I 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. I 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 through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed 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.

    Interview

    Dinner the night before the interview where they basically just tell you about the positions, then a very short behavioral interview (lasted about 10-15 minutes), and then an on-site all-day visit. I have my on-site interview tomorrow, so unfortunately can't provide any insight on that.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at ALDI (South Windsor, CT) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First round interview was on campus. Be sure to highlight your leadership experience via academic, extracurricular and work experiences. Nice interviewer, just be honest and show why you really want the job other than the good benefits. Second Round interview was at the divisional headquarters in South Windsor, Connecticut. There were 6 half hour interviews all one after another, so it was a lot all at once. Interviewed with 5 directors and the vice president of the division. A lot of overlap in questions. Situational questions such as: "what would you do if employee stole from the store?" and what kind of management style will you have as a district manager?". Then you write two short essays about why you want the job, and what your strengths/weaknesses about the job would be (kind of pointless since it was asked 6 times already). Then you go on a tour of an ALDI store and meet a district manager who was in your shoes not too long ago, so be sure to ask him or her lots of questions. Overall it was a good experience, the only thing lacking was a job offer, which I was a bit disappointed about since I thought the interviews went well.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at ALDI (Orlando, FL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Very intense. They really want to get to know you to see if you're a fit. looking for very type A personality. Want single minded employees with no outside distractions. It seems like it could be a great career opportunity if you are not interested in having a good work/life balance. That seems typical for the industry.
