    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at ALDI (Syracuse, NY).

    Interview

    The company recruited on-campus and I got offered a first-round interview. Personally, I thought it really went well. I answered all the questions with so much passion and enthusiasm and they asked really easy questions so I do not know why I didn't get it. Oh, right. I know why-- Aldi has a certain look they're trying to go for, mainly white people look.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at ALDI (Miami, FL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through my university; process took a little over a week. After that we were invited to watch an information session the day before the interview. Very informative, extremely helpful. The next day was the interview, the manager who interview me asked basic questions about me and my future expectations. They want to make sure you are right for the role before contacting you for a second interview at the HQ. Overall the manager was very nice and seemed to pay close attention to what I said. Make sure you understand what your role is and don't forget to ask question.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at ALDI.

    Interview

    Applied online through our campus recruiting page and the process took about a week. Went in for the interview, and waited for the recruiter to come and get me to come into the interview room. I was sitting outside the door and the recruiter passed me when she went to talk with one of her colleagues in another room. After she came back the recruiter was on her phone, and did not come and get me. I waited outside the door for 10 minutes and went to check the time, when I came back she acted as if I had done something wrong. Forgive me, but I was taught that the recruiter is expected to be prompt and ask the interviewee to come in to the interview room. Because of this experience I was somewhat glad I was not asked back. I guess my expectations for senior management are too high. The actual interview was good though. The recruiter asked behavioral type questions.

    Aldi uses outside staffing agencies to find candidates. After a phone l, skills assesment test and 1 in person interview with the staffing agency, you start the ALDI interview process. Typically 1st interview with buyer (if in training then their advisor as well.) If called back, the 2nd interview with buyer and thier boss. Have seen process take 2 interviews to over 8. Company tries to find the right match in personality types between buyer and assistants.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at ALDI (West Lafayette, IN) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I honesty thought I had a very good interview. In fact, it was one of the best interviews I had. It appears to me that they have a very specific "look" of their District Managers. They were all white and frat-like. The interviewer asked me to only discuss two items on my resume. I answered all the questions very well and I thought things went pretty good. I didn't get a second interview. I do think they prefer white males with a fraternity like appearance.
