    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ALDI.

    Interview

    It was three long interviews, they pry into your team work, and how hard you work. They make it very clear that you will be pushed hard and work very hard. They also want to know that you can delegate very well.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at ALDI.

    Interview

    Quick questions. They seemed quite desperate to hire due to turnover. I believe it was the district manager who conducted the interviews. If they hire you, they will place you in a store near your area or where they need you. You will do training at one of their locations then move to your actual store location after you've complete about a month's worth of training.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked questions about your work ethic and availability. It seemed quite straightforward as they were probably desperate and needed workers. I attended an open hiring event at one of their ALDI locations. When I became part time at a store, I realized they did this event every few months and hired several workers throughout the year due to the quick turnover. I left ALDI's within 7 months.   1 Answer

    Application

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

    Interview

    Pre-night to meet the employees and then a first round interview. After a set of questions online, a second round interview on site at Aldi. It was unorganized and definitely challenged you to see how bad you wanted the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ALDI (Salisbury, NC) in May 2018.

    Interview

    First was the hiring event...you wait in line to talk to one of the district managers and hand in the application.The first interview consists of touring the warehouse and asking questions; the second interview was a one-on-one interview with the district managers which lasted 20 mins. The third interview was with another district manager/director which only lasted 10 mins....got the conditional job offer the same day. Came back the following day to fill out paperwork. Was given time to complete the drug test, physical and lift test but you have to complete and pass the background, physical, drug and lift test before getting the official job offer. The lift test was intense so be prepared.

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ALDI.

    Interview

    The interview process was not the norm. The manager was not the only person in the decision. A DM also had a very big input. There are two interviews as well and background/drug test. Overall length of time to start work is a month or so.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at ALDI (Blacksburg, VA).

    Interview

    Dinner the night before. Executives have a slide show prepared and tell you more about the company. I would definitely prepare a question to ask if I could re-do this. The next day they interviewed people. My interview took about 10 minutes out of the 30 minutes blocked off. We went through basically a full interviews worth of questions but just extremely quick. I could tell my interviewer was just rushing through everything, not letting me finish thoughts or expand on explanations.
