    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ALDI.

    Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at ALDI (Bensalem, PA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    After learning online of an Aldi hiring event, I passed a basic screening at a store. I received a phone call the next morning for an interview the next business day. Waited in line for 45 minutes. A thorough interview lasted 45 minutes. It's a lot like a grocery store checkout -- line up and they ring you up. Intense company with hard working employees.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at ALDI (Fort Worth, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Multi step process. First you turn in an application during a specific store's hiring event. If they call you in for an interview it will be with a District Manager. The first interview lasted about fifteen minutes. They will ask you basic questions: tell me about your last job, what did you do, why did you leave, college, availability, etc. They explained to me that this is a multi step process and the first interview is supposed to be casual. They told me that honest is a premium at Aldi and anything I tell them will be investigated during the next step of the process and if they find that I had mislead them during my interview my employment may not be considered. They said that after a background check a drug test will occur. Depending on the position you are applying for they may ask for a hair sample test. They explained that failing a hair follicle drug test may not automatically disqualify you for employment it depends on what the test says, and he gave me an opportunity to tell them if I had used drugs during the last year or two.

    Store Manager Trainee Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at ALDI (Florissant, MO) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Did a meet and greet through job fair. Was called for 1st interview on 6/11/15 @10am at the Florissant store. I believed the interview went well until I didn't receive a call for 2nd interview. That is when I realized my mistake. I interviewed with one of the District Managers and towards the end I told him that I wanted his job. I want to apologize to this gentleman, I didn't mean this to be threatening or disrespectful. I only meant that I wanted a future and to eventually move up to District Manager and I was willing to start as a part-time associate. I learned a very good but hard lesson, choose your words carefully.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ALDI (Mesquite, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was made very simple. First, I was called by a district manager in which they asked for a interview the following week after applying at a job event they were having. The basic questions of past experience and work background were asked. Have I shopped there before and what I enjoyed most about ALDI. Of I mentioned low prices. After an interview within two days the DM called an set up a final interview with the store Manager. That experience was all the same things just a little more in depth with job duties and Hours. I enjoy the importance of employees to the company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at ALDI (Royal Palm Beach, FL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was very brief and they asked very basic questions. This was the first interview and I showed up about 30 minutes early, and was asked to come back 15 minutes later because the interviewers were still at lunch. I was the first to arrive in a big room with chairs set up and they checked me in and asked me to sit and wait. Three more people showed up after me, and all three went into their one-on-one interviews before me. I had to wait another 10 minutes, then I went into my interview. It was extremely brief and said it could take up to a week to get a call back for the second interview.
