    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ALDI (Waxahachie, TX) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was very quick, and honestly we just talked about my personal life and what I do outside of work. I had two interviews, the first one with the DM in which the talking occurred and the second one with the Store Manager of the store at which I would be working. The second interview consisted of mainly a tour of the store which was when I was pretty sure I got the job.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ALDI (Milwaukee, WI) in March 2011.

    Interview

    First began with an outside hiring group who tells you about the company and position. They then tell you to visit the store to see if this is something you would like to do.

    Once you decide it's the job for you they bring you in for an interview in which there are multiple people vying for 2 slots.

    Immediately after the interview they have you take a math test and a personality quiz. They tell you they will contact you if you have the position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ALDI (Tampa, FL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Few interviews with DM's. All they ask is about stealing like you are an idiot. You will basically be asked questions about past experience and how fast can you work. Pretty straight forward interview. Just say you like working fast and you will get the job, that's all they care about.

    Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ALDI (Saint Paul, MN) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I went to a hiring event at one of the Aldis locations. It was a short, less then 2 minute questionnaire; Can you lift 45 lbs?, Can you work as early as 6 AM or late as 11 PM, Do you have reliable transportation?. She said they'd contact me if they wanted to interview me.

    About 2 weeks later I went in for my interview on a Wednesday at another Aldis location with the District Manager. She said it was a 3 interview process. It was about a 20 minute interview. Questions like "Why did you apply at Aldis?", "Why does Aldis seem like a good fit for you?", "Why the industry change?", "How do your past positions relate to Aldi?" etc. etc. She said if they were interested in another interview I'd get a call by Friday. I didn't get a call, I suspect because I didn't have any previous experience as a cashier.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at ALDI (Daytona Beach, FL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Went to a hiring event, it was rom 6am to 12pm (I was there exactly at 6am) I was told to fill out an application and that the hiring manager would look over the applications. I waited a week and then tried to call to just see when people should hear back, but their only phone number told you to send in an email. I sent in an email and heard back a week later saying that “the hiring manager was looking over applications and you should receive an email regarding it if you was scheduled for an interview or not”...turned out the hiring manager just wanted applications on hand in case they would need to hiring more people.
