District Manager Interview

District Manager

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at ALDI.

Interview Details – One phone interview, one face to face interview, an entire day interview, one final interview with hiring manager. I only made it to the face to face interview. The VP of the District Managers was easy to talk to, although he did ask hard questions. He seemed to judge me from the get-go.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work in the grocery industry?   View Answer

District Manager Interview

District Manager
Denton, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at ALDI.

Interview Details – Series of interviews which starts with an on campus dinner. After on campus interviews they select a few to come for final round interviews. Final round of interviews consists of 3 short interviews with VPs and former District Managers. Interviews are pretty straightforward, they just want to see who can handle the loads of pressure from this job.

Interview Question – How would you deal with an unhappy store manager?   View Answers (2)

Reason for Declining – This job seems to pay well, but for the time and effort this job does not compensate workers well at all. Several older classmates had taken this job and had quit before the end of the first year. They try to bait you in with a "high" salary, but I ended up taking another job that requires much less time and effort with similar pay. Stay away from ALDI, don't be fooled by the compensation package. Use this offer to leverage another offer and decline ALDI.
