    Aldi Shift Manager Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at ALDI.

    Interview

    I went to the first "interview". The district manager was kurt in her approach. The district manager has the group of applicants line up in the front of the store, and individually come over to her, handing her our applications with our resume included. She asked if I had any questions, and her answer was short and sort of to the point. When I asked for clarification on the position related to the pay scale, as it seemed to be a dual role (sometimes a cashier and only when needed, as shift supervisor), My question was, "Does the pay rate change with the role served?", and she stated, "Yes." I also inquired when could I expect a response for an interview which she said about 2 weeks. I thanked her and extended my for a handshake, and she told me, "I don't shake hands." Now if you are in the business to recruit people to your business, you must be willing to shake a hand or two, after all, there is such a thing as hand sanitizer! I did notice that she also wrote on the back of each applicant's paperwork as they walked away. Now I know as a manager doing interviews that the interviewer does make notes on each applicant/ interviewee, but it is usually done after the applicant has left and is done as a private action. I felt she was not approachable or maybe she was having a "bad day", but she needed to brush up on her people skills.

    It was a quick interview with mainly general personality-based questions. They asked questions like:
    What makes a leader?, How do you define success?, What drew you to ALDI?, What do you like to do in your spare time?, What is one undesirable trait that you have personally witnessed in a manager?, and If hired, what will your employees learn from you?

    Interview

    Applied through my university; process took a little over a week. After that we were invited to watch an information session the day before the interview. Very informative, extremely helpful. The next day was the interview, the manager who interview me asked basic questions about me and my future expectations. They want to make sure you are right for the role before contacting you for a second interview at the HQ. Overall the manager was very nice and seemed to pay close attention to what I said. Make sure you understand what your role is and don't forget to ask question.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at ALDI (South Windsor, CT (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First round interview was on campus. Be sure to highlight your leadership experience via academic, extracurricular and work experiences. Nice interviewer, just be honest and show why you really want the job other than the good benefits. Second Round interview was at the divisional headquarters in South Windsor, Connecticut. There were 6 half hour interviews all one after another, so it was a lot all at once. Interviewed with 5 directors and the vice president of the division. A lot of overlap in questions. Situational questions such as: "what would you do if employee stole from the store?" and what kind of management style will you have as a district manager?". Then you write two short essays about why you want the job, and what your strengths/weaknesses about the job would be (kind of pointless since it was asked 6 times already). Then you go on a tour of an ALDI store and meet a district manager who was in your shoes not too long ago, so be sure to ask him or her lots of questions. Overall it was a good experience, the only thing lacking was a job offer, which I was a bit disappointed about since I thought the interviews went well.
