    Store Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bolton, England
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ALDI (Bolton, England) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, received an email within a week to choose an interview time on a set date around 2 weeks later (other options are available if you can not make it). The interview was 1-2-1 with area manager, when not answering set interview questions it seemed more of a relaxed 15 minute casual conversation. Received an email the next day saying:

    "Thank you for your recent application. Unfortunately on this occasion you have not been successful.

    Due to the high volume of applications that we receive, we are unable to provide specific feedback to individual candidates.

    We would welcome applications from you in the future, however please note that for the next 12 months you will be unable to reapply."
