Assistant Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Milwaukee, WI (US)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

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

    Difficult Interview

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ALDI (Rochester, MN (US)) in October 2017.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at ALDI (Sunderland, North East England, England) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Online application. A lot of in depth questions to answer and very lengthy application. Email back around a week later with an invite to complete a video interview. You have to sign in online, make sure the camera etc is set correctly then start the interview. A question will pop up on the screen, you have 15 seconds to read it, the it will count you in and give you 30 seconds to 1 minute to answer, recording you in the process. When the timer runs out, it saves and sends your answer and moves on to the next. Approx 10 question to answer and record. Very nervy and uncomfortable situation. No room for error. I had technical issues where the browser kept closing, but it just sends the question as being unanswered.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ALDI (Flint, Wales) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Long and wasteful!!
    I applied in mid jan,got an email to invite me to a phone interview on 2nd feb.
    This was quick no personality just answer questions!
    A further email inviting me to a group assessment in 4th March and to prepare a 3 min presentation on a Aldi store visit.
    Attended with around 15 other people,we did a 5 minute maths exam,then the operations manager arrived and asked who we all worked for and what are interests are.
    The group discussion in being stranded after a plane crash and prioritise 15 items!
    Then we reviews the answer before she told us everything that Aldi do and the process(which I already researched for the presentation) then asked if any other questions before we leave!!
    No presentation required and felt like a waste of time and too casual!

    Interview

    Was invited after 6 months of applying to a group assessment, which included some information about the company and some basic tests.

    The next stage was a one to one interview. This involved standard questions and suitability for the role.

    It is a steep learning curve in the first 6 months, many things have to be done on any given day and it really comes down to how you manage your time and getting the best out of your team.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ALDI (Barrow in Furness, England) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Starts off OK with online tests.
    Next Stage is a video interview, with no opportunity to retake ! I blew it as having read questions recorded looking at yourself on your screen, I found it nerve racking and floundered. Hence, I didn't get any further, pity as I am very calm in interview situations normally. I think it was the lack of someone to talk to or focus on.
