    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ALDI (Miami, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I dropped my app + resume to several stores.I was called for an interview about a week later.I first interviewed with a district manager at a store for about 30 minutes.We discussed my experience in retail and my management style.I was called the next day and was scheduled to do a second interview with a store manager about a week later.This interview was basically a store walk starting from the front entrance of the store through the entire store including the freezer and coolers and ended in the receiving area.This was about another 30 minute process.The manager walked trough the daily routines and company expectations.This was basically to give me insight on the job I was applying for.At the end of the walk/interview I was asked if it was something I was interested in doing.I was called 2 days later to set up an interview with the director of store operations.I attended that interview 4 days later at the regional corporate office.They made me feel welcomed,I was a brand new facility.The director started out by giving me a run down on how the the interview will go,She stressed that honesty is the most important thing and if I was found to be dishonest about anything I will not be considered .She also said the interview will be about 30 minutes,I felt rushed at first because this was the final step and there is no way I could articulate my 20 years of experience in that short time.Well 30 minutes turned into two hours,She actually became very interested in what I had to say and started ingadging me in conversation and my retail experience.By this time she had called in a another director to sit in on the process.The interview lasted another 20 minutes after that at which they excused themselves from the room.They were gone for about 5 minutes,they came back in and offered me the job pending drug and background check.That process took one week.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – 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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7+ monthsinterviewed at ALDI (Atlanta, GA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    After DM interning at Aldi, I decided to pursue career as a DM. I ended up having 15 interviews in total in 3 different divisions. I was told numerous times "we want to hire you, but think you'd be better suited for x division." After being flown all around the country numerous times, the last interview VP told me that my GPA was a 2.998 and they required a 3.0 and that he too wanted to offer me a job but didn't feel comfortable "taking a chance on me because my GPA was a hurdle." He said I could potentially have an interview with someone in the corporate office to plead my case of why I should be hired, but after 15 interviews and talking to 20+ members of divisional management, I decided it really wasn't as great a company as the brochures make it out to be. Pay would have been great. I studied leadership and love the responsibility of the job, but in so many conversations, I realized that employees really are not cared about at this company. Bizarre process, indecisive, would not recommend.
