Interview

It was a typical corporate internship interview. I could immediately tell that it was not the right position for me. The interviewer was nice but we both knew it was not going anywhere.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ALDI (Springfield, OH) in July 2017.

    Interview

    My first two interviews were with a recruiter (which I didn't know right away)
    1st was on the phone the 2nd was in person

    After that I was recommended to go for the district manager position instead of the store manager position I was originally going for.

    I had a total of 3 more interviews and a half day job shadow.

    My last interview was with the VP

    So, 5 interviews total plus a half day work shadow

    You have to pass each part of the process to get to the next so I did extremely well; however, I was not offered the position.

    This process is as long as you make it
    I had them push me through fast so it took like a week but it could take much longer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ALDI in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied and waited for two months before hearing anything from the company, even while I was working for them on a contractual basis during that time. The first interview was with a district manager in the same area as me. A few weeks later, I interviewed with one of the division's Directors of Store Operations. After waiting to hear back within the amount of time I was told, I received no response. I followed up via phone and was sent an email several hours later with a letter that there would be no continuation of interviews.

    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.
