Question 2 of 35
Describe a time when you disliked company rules in your last job.
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
The interviewer wants to hear that you are not a rule breaker, and you support the rules the company has put into place. Show that you are supportive of the leadership decisions the company makes. After all, there had to be some logic to their professional decision!

Answer Example
"If I could change one decision the leadership team made, it would be surrounding split shifts. I do not think that split shifts encourage a healthy work/life balance and when they incorporated them, it was tough. I still came to work, as scheduled, but I did respectfully let them know that I would be looking for work elsewhere, due to this change."

Question 3 of 35
What is your favorite item to purchase at Aldi because of its low price compared to competitors?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Think of some typically higher priced items at most grocery stores. Does the low priced coconut oil make you happy? Do you like the money you save each week buying eggs at Aldi? Perhaps it's the savings on gourmet cheeses or grass-fed beef. Whatever your favorite item to save on is, now is the time to share it! If you can recall prices, even better.

Answer Example
"I love coming to Aldi for the prices on meat, and gourmet cheeses. The last time I came here, I compared my bill to the advertised prices of your competitor, and estimated that I saved at least 15%."

How to Answer
This one should be easy! Does the thought of a fresh pineapple make you drool? Does the fruity salsa make your mouth water? Or, does the pure maple syrup make your Saturday morning pancakes so much more yummy? Be prepared to excitedly share what always ends up slipping into your cart at Aldi!

Answer Example
"There are so many great options at Aldi! Whenever I come here, I am sure first to check out the fresh baked items. I have a bit of a sweet tooth, and there is always something to satiate my cravings."

About Aldi

Aldi is a leading global discount supermarket chain with over 9,000 stores in over 18 countries, and an estimated turnover of more than ?50bn. Based in Germany, the chain was founded by brothers Karl and Theo Albrecht in 1946 when they took over their mother's store in Essen which had been in operation since 1913; it is one of the world's largest privately owned companies.

The earliest roots of the company trace back to 1913, when the mother of Karl and Theo Albrecht opened a small store in a suburb of Essen. Their father was employed as a miner and later as a baker?s assistant. Karl Albrecht was born in 1920, Theo Albrecht in 1922. Theo Albrecht completed an apprenticeship in his mother?s store, while Karl Albrecht worked in a delicatessen. Karl Albrecht took over a food shop formerly run by F. W. Judt who already advertised that they were the "cheapest food source". Karl Albrecht served in the German Army during World War II. In 1946, the brothers took over their mother?s business and soon opened another retail outlet nearby. By 1950, the Albrecht brothers owned 13 stores in the Ruhr Valley.
