Aldi Interview Questions

35 Aldi Interview Questions
Question 1 of 35
What is your favorite item to purchase at Aldi because of its low price compared to competitors?
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%."

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 makes our stores unique compared to other food markets?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Aldi is unique in a variety of ways! You might say that:

- Compared to other grocery stores, the stores are much smaller.
- You need to bring your shopping bags or take cardboard from the aisles to use.
- There are typically only 1-2 checkout lanes open on an average day.
- The store is only open during busy shopping hours to keep its labor costs down.

Be prepared to list 3-4 things that make Aldi unique!

Question 4 of 35
Tell me about your experience working in retail.
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
The interviewer wants to learn more about your background and experience. If you don't have any experience, it's okay! Tell the interviewer that you do not have any experience in the industry, and you look forward to making the transition and learning everything there is to know! Be sure to highlight some transferable skills from a time when you played a team sport or volunteered.

If you have experience, start off by giving the interviewer an overview of your experience by sharing where you have worked, your job title, and how long you were employed there. Add a sentence or two about what your job duties were in each role as well. Be sure to mention that you really enjoy this industry, and you look forward to continuing to work in retail industry roles.

Answer Example
"I have not worked in a grocery store environment; however, I have worked in a clothing store for about one year. I learned a great deal about customer service, the point of sale systems, and upselling. I look forward to taking this experience to work with me at Aldi."

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.

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.
