    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Batavia, IL (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ALDI (Batavia, IL (US)).

    Interview

    The process is lengthy, has irrelevancy and cold.
    Initially a call from a recruiter, then a panel interview which was good and they asked good behavioral questions relevant to the position. After that, they have you take a long ACT-like assessment test that has many parts completely irrelevant to the job you are applying to ( why not take this before/after the initial recruiter screening? Strange company). You do not see results how you did but if you pass you then go to a 2nd interview with a site tour (why isint a site tour only offered if an offer is extended? Don’t waste people’s time). If you do not pass this somewhat ridiculous assessment that you are not suppose to use even a basic calculator ( everyone has a calculator in this day and age, Aldi, why can’t we use it?), you receive a generic, basic , cold “do not reply” rejection email from the company.
    So after all the weeks you prepare for multiple interview and communication with recruitment, they simply tell you “no” in a generic email like you didn’t even interview to begin. Would not recommend this company as it seems you would be just a robot to them.

    Issues Management Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ALDI.

    Interview

    Had a 30-minute phone interview with recruiter. Most of the questions were behavioral questions to see how you handle different situations and challenges. Recruiter asked a series of questions to determine whether the culture (e.g., business professional dress code, set office hours, etc.) would be a good fit. It seems like the culture is definitely more old school than most companies. Telecommuting wasn't mentioned unless you are working after hours to respond to an urgent situation. I received an auto-generated rejection notice within a week after the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at ALDI.

    Interview

    I was lucky enough to know someone who worked there, otherwise the only way to get hired was hiring events. The interview process was a phone call to set an appointment with a handful of questions and the in person part was simple questions that every interviewer asks.

    Buying Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ALDI.

    Interview

    LONG! I had a phone interview and then had to complete assessments. The assessments were Microsoft Word, Excel, a typing test, Math & Reasoning and a Reading Comprehension test. Honestly all of these test were ridiculous. Each were about 30 questions long. It was like I was taking the ACT again. Honestly for the amount they pay and the fact that benefits don't start until 90-days after employment, they shouldn't be able to require assessments that take up to 2 hours long.

    Interview

    I did a quick interview over the phone, which landed me an in person interview. I thought it was fairly easy. The interviewer was a current district manager and was incredibly friendly and helpful. She mostly seemed interested in talking about my past experience.
