Aldi District Manager Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at ALDI in April 2017.

Interview

Met an Aldi Recruiter at my Universities' career fair in which they told me about the 10-week summer internship position and what it entailed. I was invited by the Aldi representative to attending an informational dinner the following evening. The dinner had a presentation from the VP of the division as well as two DM of local Aldi locations. The presentation gives you all information that you need to know about the role and you can discover what they are looking for. TAKE NOTES the material they give is really helpful to know and will help in the later stages of the interview.

The day after the dinner I was invited to an interview with on of the District Managers. The interview was very straight forward, mainly explaining my CV and behavioral questions. Two days later I got an invitation to interview at the Aldi Regional Headquarters, which was two weeks away.

At the Regional Headquarters, I met other applicants and had to do a written essay. The questions were along the lines of 'what draws you to become a DM for Aldi' and 'why would you be a successful DM'. There were 30 minutes given to write both essays. After the essay, we all interviewed with three different Aldi employees, all at different positions. Questions were not too tricky. Remember one which was 'what is the biggest impact you have made on a project' the remaining questions were just going over CV. After the interview, we were given a tour of the distribution center then given a tour of an Aldi store. Two weeks later I was told I had the position, I started the position two weeks after receiving the offer letter.

Overall very professional interview process, very happy with the experience

    Interview

    Applied through a career fair at my university and was invited to attend a "dinner", it's not a dinner but rather only finger food. They talk about the position and pay attention so you can have questions for the next day. The next day I had a one-on-one interview with the VP of the area. It was a very quick interview 10-15 min and most of it was them asking questions about the position. The questions he did ask me were about my resume so be ready to talk about it and try to turn it into something good for aldi. Heard back about a week later and was told i was invited for an on-site interview in O'Fallon, MO. Haven't gone yet.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ALDI.

    Interview

    Very basic behavioral interview. First round interview was 30 min basically getting to know you and your resume a little better. Final round interview was at a regional division and takes up most of the day. Again the interviews there were two 30 min behavioral interviews. Very stress-free interviews and more of a conversation than an interrogation.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at ALDI.

    Interview

    Interview on campus following a informational meeting the night before. The interview was about 30 minutes long. Questions asked were behavioral and situational questions. The next steps following the campus interview is an interview at a diversion near you or one that they are interviewing for. I recommend reviewing your resume and come up with answers that will be used when asked situational questions if you were to become a district manager. Also, the more adaptable to different locations the better chance you have.

    Their was a pre-night event with dinner and a presentation. Then the 1st round of the interview process was on campus, very easy basic questions and was 1:1. The 2nd round consisted of multiple interviews and a tour of both the warehouse and a store. You also went out to lunch with the interviewers and had to write an essay on why you wanted to work for ALDI.

    Interview

    After the career fair, they contacted me about an interview and pre-interview dinner. The dinner was nice and informative. Answered most questions. The interview the next day was short and asked questions that didn't really give me a chance to show them who I am. It was very rushed and I could tell they were just looking for specific answers that I apparently wasn't giving.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed 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.
