District Manager Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ALDI.

Interview Details Interviewed at campus recruiting fair and got general info. The night before the interview, everyone goes to a dinner and they tell you about the internship. Day of interview, they ask you four or so questions regarding situations you may encounter. They are really trying to scope out if you are a manager material or not.

Interview Question – If you noticed a worker stealing from a register, what would you do?   Answer Question

Difficult Interview

Aldi District Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at ALDI.

Interview Details Sent in resume online. Received a call to set-up phone interview. Phone interview was general information about yourself. Be professional and give specific answers to questions, not generic. Got offered on-site interview. Long day, toured warehouse & had interview with each executive (4 or 5) then went to Aldi store to meet a couple district managers to see what the job entails in their perspective. I was out of college for a year with 4 years experience in management and the two other candidates were still finishing up their degree. They told us we could all get hired and maybe none of us. There was not a specific position open, they hire who they see fits their criteria

Interview Question – Provide explanation of how you handled managing people in current workplace? What do you look to get out of Aldi?   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Shift Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee

Interviewed at ALDI

Interview Details Went to a job fair that was help 6am...the manager just took the resume and said thank you but based on my experience as an Aldi manager I would recommend that anyone that is interested always dress business ready. That first impression is what Aldi DMs go for...anyway...if you are called back for an interview...the first interview is a group interview....after the group interview if you are lucky you will be called back for another one in which you meet with store manager and dm.

Very Easy Interview

Cashier Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ALDI.

Interview Details The interview began with a history overview of my previous jobs. Why I left each job was the focus. After the interview there was drug testing and a pretty basic orientation that taught the ALDI culture and the focus on accuracy, speed, and teamwork with employees. If you display focus and team building abilities you should be fine.

Interview Question – Have you ever used marijuana was asked repeatedly. I answered professionally but it was annoying to be interrogated.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation on the pay. To get a raise I believe you must become a manager.

District Manager Internship Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Interviewed at ALDI

Interview Details on campus interview then 2 weeks for second round then 2 weeks for final round... way too long. It is not worth my time nor is it worth the salary. They want you to drive around more than you actually work. If you do the math backwards and find out how much you get paid they only give you about 9 bucks an hour.

Store Manager Trainee Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Interviewed at ALDI

Interview Details Was recruited by a DM. He told me to go visit a couple of stores and get back with him to set up a formal interview. And if that 1st interview goes well he would pass me onto the Director of my area. O I think normally it would be a 3 stage interview process but if you are being recruited it will be a 2 stage interview process. If you are not being recruited you have to attend one of their job fairs that the advertise in the paper and on Craigslist.

Interview Question – Why did you not go into another field.   Answer Question
