District Manager Interview

Difficult Interview

Application

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

Interview

Two rounds of interviews. Applied first through University career services website, then got an email inviting me to a preliminary interview on campus. Prior to the interview, we were invited to an information session the night before the interview day. They talked about the company and all of the benefits and took questions, which altogether lasted about an hour and there were about 80 people there between the DM internship and the DM full time positions. Next day was the first interview.

This was a 20 minute interview with 1 or 2 basic behavioral questions and the rest just running through my resume. I got an email a couple days later saying I was invited to the final round of interviews roughly a month later at one of their distribution centers. The prepared a lot for the final interview by reading a bunch of interview questions on here, and they all were pretty accurate to what I faced in my final rounds.

The day began with 3 rounds of 15-20 minute interviews with the VP of that district and a couple of DMs. Each interview had a specific focus, with one essentially going through my resume and asking some behavioral Q's, the next being more focused on the job and how my experiences correlate to their job, and the final one being a mix of the two. When you weren't interviewing, you were in a conference room with the 10 or so other interviewees, and made small talk. After everyone had finished their interviews, we had lunch in the conference room with all of the interviewers and talked casually. Then we took a tour through the distribution center for about 45 minutes, and then drove to a nearby store location, where we took a 45 minute tour of the store itself, lead by 3 or 4 younger DM's from the area. That concluded the interview process. I got an offer via email the next day.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at ALDI (Moreno Valley, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Met at an ALDI distribution center for a 4-hour long interview and information session. Myself and approximately 30-35 other applicants for the internship were given a presentation on the company, a tour of the distribution center, and a Panera Bread lunch with ALDI District Managers who were available to answer our questions about the position. Each applicant was alotted one 15-minute interview with a company Director and had to answer four essays that were each a page long with questions such as "Why should ALDI hire you, What do you know about ALDI, etc". Some applicants were called back for two or even three interviews, and since I was not called back for a second and was rejected, I assume that applicants called back for second or third interviews were the ones ALDI was the most interested in. Overall a very nice experience with lots of learning and a good lunch although I did not get the internship.

    Interview

    I applied through my college's employment website for an on-campus interview. I was notified I was selected for an interview and had to attend an information session the night before, where two employees gave us an in-depth look at what the job entails. This was really informational and explained a lot of questions. They really want to make sure you know what you'll be doing and give you a chance to cancel the interview if you're not feeling it anymore, since it's a challenging job. The next day I had my interview, which only lasted about 15 minutes.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at ALDI (Columbus, OH) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through school career center, and got accepted for an interview on campus. There was a pre-interview dinner the night before the interview and then the interview the next day with a vice president. Nice dinner, but bad interview. I had the feeling the VP made up his mind about me before I walked in the door or shortly after the interview began.
