    Interview

    Turned in my resume through my school's career website. I was notified I was selected for an interview and that I must attend a pre-interview dinner. The "dinner" was a presentation of Aldi and what it does and stands for. It really helped in making expectations clear. The interview the next day asked for about 5 basic behavioral questions. I was told I would know if I made it to the next round in a week. I received a rejection email exactly a week later.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I spoke with a current DM at my school's career fair. I applied online and received an interview. In order to interview, all candidates attend a pre-interview informational session where they discuss all aspects of the job and answer any questions you have. At the first interview (20 mins), they ask very basic questions about yourself, your resume, and the DM job. I got an email asking for me to come to the second round of interviews.

    District Manager Interview

    Interview

    Applied through university's career services. After being selected for an interview and choosing my time, I received an email asking me to come to an "interview pre-night" or something similar. The dress was business casual. This information session lasted approximately 1 hour (as Aldi promised) and was conducted by the Director of Operations for the branch myself and my fellow students were applying to. She was very friendly and while the session, of course, portrayed Aldi in a positive light, it was genuinely informative and some good reading material on Aldi was given. We were also asked to fill out a sheet stating our location preferences.

    The next day I had my interview. It was basic and my interviewer was the same Director of Operations though two district managers were also interviewing others. Questions were straightforward. One piece of advice, however: come prepared with questions. I had researched Aldi extremely thoroughly prior to the interview and thus had few questions about their business model or the position in question. As such, I came with perhaps 2-3 questions. After I asked these, though, she asked if I had any others in a way that implied I should have more. I was a bit surprised at this since we were already 5 minutes over the allotted time for the interview and I knew another student was coming right after me, but I understand. I think she was looking for questions about her personal experiences as a district manager rather than questions about the corporation.

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at ALDI.

    Interview

    I applied at a hiring event. I filled out an application and had a short resume prepared. We waited in line until we were called back to meet with the store manager. This was a first line interview, so if selected at this point, I would need to be interviewed by the District Manager.

    Well I was a bit late due to no fault of my own. The group interview was a bit long and I didn't participate the way I should have..I was all messed up from being late. Then we got to 1 on 1 interviews..the guy didn't seem interested in anything I had to say..didn't ask me much and the whole interview was literally 2 minutes.
