    Store Manager Trainee Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at ALDI.

    Interview Details

    Odd company policies. Very short interview for me. I was told they defined full time as more than 20 hours, and hitting 34 at peak. I said thanks for your time, but no thank you. Seems like it would be a great company for college students or as a secondary income for a family.

    Shift Manager/Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Melbourne, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne, FL
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days - interviewed at ALDI in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Horrible and disappointing process. Went to career fair, was invited back to an interview that evening. Was told that I'd be starting off as a cashier when I specifically applied for the store manager/trainee position. I have years of experience and a 4 year degree. District manager was very young, kept repeating himself and really did not seem to know what he was doing. Was told that IF I'd be promoted to a shift manager position, I'd be making $14.50 ONLY if there was no manager present at the time--if there was I'd be earning cashier's salary of $10.50. Full time is considered working 20 hrs. at Aldi, which includes being at the store at 6AM to start unloading, etc. Store manager was not professional and mispronounced my name about 10 times after I told her how it was correctly pronounced. What disappoints me the most is the fact that the hiring event had specifically outlined that Aldi was looking for MANAGEMENT TRAINEES----not people to start off as cashiers! Please don't advertise falsely. I used to be a frequent Aldi customer but after this experience I won't be setting foot in that store again.

    Interview Questions
    • Interview wasn't traditional, district manager appeared as if he had no experience conducting interviews before. Did not ask me any questions pertaining to my degree, work experience, etc., all he asked were what questions I have about job. Asked me if I had additional questions after meeting with store manager when in fact I had not yet met with store manager. Goes to show how organized and on top of things he was.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    If you think you're applying for a management trainee position, think again. They'll be starting you off as a cashier with $10.50/hr, full time is considered 20 hrs a week. They gloat on how much $$ store managers make, etc., but you aren't promised an advancement or opportunity to be a store manager yourself. Don't get stuck working as a cashier!

    I went through University Recruiting and was interviewed at my University. The process was nice and easy and the questions asked were based off my resume. There were no real trick questions or anything they were trying to get to know me. It seemed they really took the resume as being the ticket to who you really are.

    Interview Details

    First required to attend an info session and then go through two rounds of interviews. First round lasted about 20 mins, some general questions about your interest in the company and position..etc. Second round, on-site interviews with different directors more in-depth then the first. Also gave a tour of an Aldi warehouse and store. Overall, very fast interview process and not really many unexpected questions. Everyone is pretty friendly and open to answering any questions you may have.
