    Store Manager Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at ALDI in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    He talked sooooooo fast asking questions that you felt like you had to respond back talking fast as well or he just wasn't interested. It was weird. To me it felt like he was intimidated by me and felt threatened that I potentially wanted to take his job. Just felt like a very odd interview to me. Was not very professional in my opinion.

    Interview Questions
    • He just asked to explain the very first job to your current job and asked questions in between.   Answer Question

    District Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Akron, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ALDI in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is long and takes about 1 month to complete. I went through 4 stages before I was offered the job. The first round was one-on-one on my college campus with the VP of the Division. The second round was a group interview at the division office which included several one-on-one interviews with various directors, a tour of the warehouse, a personality exam, and a general knowledge exam (basic algebra, geometry, grammar, etc.). The third round was spent on a half-day with one of the District Managers to get a feel for the day-to-day aspects of the job. The final round was another one-on-one with the VP of the Division, and that was when the offer was made to me.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked if I truly felt like I could handle the job, given the intense training program, and very demanding job requirements.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I received another job offer that was much better.

    Aldi District Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    The process consists of three interviews. The first is a quick 30 minute interview with one person, more of like a screening. The next one consists of a 4-6 hour interview process that involves interviews with two other district managers, a Director of Operations and the Vice President of the area. In addition, as people take turns getting interviewed you are given two essay questions to write about. Finally, after this has been completed, you go to lunch with the team, come back and take a quick aptitude test(about 20 minutes long). Unfortunately, I did not pass to get into the interview, but the experience was great and everyone was very nice and welcoming!

    DM Interview

    Interview Details

    recruited at campus career fair. went to a info section after I got the call back, and the day before the interview. Recruiters fit the stereotypical "business people" profile: fast pace, sometimes impatient. I was scheduled for 11 but I wasnt called till 12. The interviewer didnt explain why or apologize for making me wait so long. There was another girl waiting as well another interviewer from Aldi. So it wasnt just this one, the whole interview schedule was behind. I found it very unprofessional.

    Aldi District Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Pittsburgh, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at ALDI in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was very unorganized and provided false hope for employment. I attended 2 different smaller interviews before making it to the final stage. I had to take 3 trips to Pittsburgh where they covered barely any expenses except a hotel for the final interview. The final interview was a day long process where I had to miss school. Overall it was very dry and there was not much that intrigued me. The people were nice but the atmosphere was very dry and seemed rehearsed as if they had done it a million times. I am glad I did not receive an offer. They expect so much because they give a large salary but you basically are expected to give up your life.

    Interview Questions
    • They used a lot of scenario questions where you had to build upon answers you had given in the past. I thought the essay they required us to write was extremely dumb.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 months - interviewed at ALDI in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.
