    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ALDI.

    Interview Details

    3 part interview process : application with very short interview ( 5 minutes), they will call you back for another interview if they are interested, followed by a 3rd interview. Drug test and background check ( just be honest, don't try to lie) . Afterwards you are basically in.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions themselves aren't as tough as in other places ( do your homework and reasearch : books, youtube videos). Although at times it does seem, as many others have said, it's like being in the middle of a criminal investigation. Just remember not to take it personal and punch through it.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ALDI in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Went to a hiring event on a Thursday at 7:35, 5 minutes after it started. The room was already packed with people sitting down filling out their applications. I would suggest you print your application off online and fill it out before. I went straight to the desk where two district managers were sitting and handed in my application. She asked a few yes or no questions such as "Can you lift 45lbs"? and "do you have a means of getting to work"? and then said expect to receive a phone call within two weeks if we're interested. I got a the following Friday to come in for an interview in a week and a half. The interview was pretty straight forward and I thought it went well, but I think they wanted management experience which coming straight out of college, I do not have.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ALDI in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I saw a posting for job fair for Manager Trainee. There was a line waiting to see two gentlemen. I recommend printing an application from the website prior to attending or you will have to fill it out on the spot. Each candidate was given a minute or two to talk to the representative and told that calls would be made the following week. On Monday, a woman from the home office called to schedule an interview for the following Monday. The two men from the open house were conducting the interviews with two candidates, separately. I was asked to meet with the other man also, which was a good sign. They made a conditional offer and sent me for a drug and background test. I was hired 4 days later.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ALDI in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    My interview went really well and my credentials surpassed those that got offers, I was confused about what went wrong. I think they wrote a good number of the interviewees off and just asked them about the school because it was their first time interviewing at Baylor. A few others agreed that they sounded like they were interviewing about the school, not ourselves. Understandable, I guess, but it felt disrespectful to me.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at ALDI in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    There was an initial job fair at a local chain hotel and conference center where the only questions asked where if you read the post description and if you had any questions. The folks working the table accepting applications were all quite young - early twenties - and very friendly. No resumed were being taken. There was a group of young district managers in the foyer getting ready to go to lunch. They were not very friendly and seemed quite bored by the whole affair. I was called that evening for a second.interview scheduled for 915 am the following Tuesday. Upon arrival there was no one greeting potential hires or instructing where to go. I arrived 10 minutes early and waited almost 40 minutes for my interview. Thirty minutes behind so early in the process did not bode well for those with later times. Interviews where being conducted in three rooms - two for potential cashiers and shift managers and one for store managers. I interviewed with the current district manager and another young gentleman. The current district manager was a women who I overheard the previous day looking at the whole affair with disdain. The interview started with a plea to be as completely truthful as possible - that no one is perfect. I was instructed to give a brief run down of my employment history and them asked a few questions such as naming an obstacle I encountered in my job history and how I overcame it and to name what my biggest flaw is. The guy running the interview was really nice and.completely engaged in the conversation. The woman, who I was to assume would be the potential boss, was kind of fake. She tried to be engaging but seemed distracted by something behind me and kept looking at her watch. I think she was disappointed.to be running so obviously behind. She also had a terrible handshake. I submitted my resume and cover letter at this time.

    Interview Questions
    • I hate the question of naming your biggest flaw. No one wants to here the truth and any other answer sounds like you're pandering to the interviewer.   Answer Question
