    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.

    Cashier Interview

    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

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Easy Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ALDI (Tyler, TX (US)) in May 2018.

    Interview

    This was for the "job fair" that the Aldi in Tyler, Tx hosted. I went in and tried to introduce myself to the person taking applications and was interrupted by him. He did not let me even say my name. He asked if I wanted to work full-time or part-time and I said part-time since I also am a college student. He then asked if I was working full-time at another job I had listed in the experience box and I said no (I had not worked there in a year). I also tried to give my resume to him along with my application and was told "it wasn't necessary at this time" and to "bring it back if I was called back for an interview". I tried to explain I was not busy all summer or taking any trips and he didn't seem to care. He was extremely rude and short. I was weary about applying for this company since I have heard that they only hire 8-10 people per store. I mean this is for someone to stock groceries not to be the next CEO. I heard about the rigorous interview process from Glassdoor and I think it's ridiculous for a store associate. I think it was a sign this is not the right company for me. I am convinced I did not get called back since I said I only wanted to work part-time.

    Interview

    Job fair leads to a phone call for a first round interview if they like you, which leads to an online personality exam which leads to second round interview which leads to third round interview which leads to background check to include your criminal past and drug testing which leads to congratulations you’re hired! If you are what they need in every way from availability to physical stamina, your a shoe in.
