    ASM- Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at ALDI (Phoenix, AZ (US)) in July 2020.

    Interview

    First interview was with two existing/soon-to-be store managers for the area. Second interview (a few hours later) was with a District Manager for the company. Having wore a coat and tie, I felt completely over dressed for the in-person interviews. Third interview was with another District Manager for the company, however, this one was by phone and not in person. She missed our scheduled phone interview appointment and ended up calling back later that day to see if it was okay to talk, which seemed unprofessional and although it was inconvenient, I made time for the short conversation. After that, it was radio silence for more than a week (from the Aldi folks as well as my recruiter). I took this as a bad sign. Finally after multiple attempts to contact, I received an email from the recruiter stating that Aldi had decided not to pursue me as a candidate any longer. This both shocked and confused me as I have experience and knowledge as a manager in grocery retail as well as boutique and big box. I was completely qualified for the position and had knowledge of their brand.

    District Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oak Creek, WI (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ALDI (Oak Creek, WI (US)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    Very very surface level interview process. In fact, it was the worst interview process I have ever been part of or heard of. First "interview" was a phone screen talking about my resume, and that was it. Apparently I described my resume in a way that made them want to bring me in for the "final" interview. What ALDI doesn't do is describe the interview process. My final interview was actually a group interview. We all just sat in a room until someone from the Divisional leadership team came and grabbed you to "interview" you. Again, all questions were surface level and honestly seemed like a high school job interview. Each person I interviewed with just read off my resume, and then asked if I had questions. It was truly a disappointing process. Hiring for such a high level position, but putting such minimal effort around actually getting people through is not a good look for ALDI. I believe they get away with it because they pretty much only hire kids straight out of big name colleges, and those graduates don't know any different.

    I encourage ALDI to look at how they hire. You want diversity? Quit looking at the University, and GPA, and start looking at real life experience. Just because someone got a business degree from a huge university does not by any means mean they are going to be a good leader. Going through the interview process, and seeing all the leaders, it showed me that diversity is not something ALDI wants, or is trying to do. Every single leader I interviewed with had almost identical stories on how they got to ALDI, and frankly it was a huge disappointment hearing how shallow and non-developmental those stories were. ALDI has huge potential, but if they continue to put leaders that come from the same place with the same background, and have the same surface level mindset, they will never progress with where the world is going.

      All questions were very closed, non-thought provoking, and super surface level. Very disappointed in the questions being asked.   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at ALDI (Oak Creek, WI (US)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    Brief 15 minute 1-on-1 interview with Warehouse Manager. Questions were more personally oriented rather than Aldi-specific. Incredibly personable interviewer who eased any concern and answered all my questions. He was very transparent about the number of competing applicants for my position and they said they'd get back to me within a week regarding my status.
