This included employment history, and questions like where you have obtained leadership skills, etc. Very straightforward.
2. Group interview
Around 12 of us in a room. Started off going round the room taking turns making a speech about ourselves, our degree and why we were there. After that, it mainly focused on what we knew about Aldi as well as any additional information given by the regional manager.
3. Psychometric testing
Online personality questionnaire which assessed suitability to the job.
3. Two-on-one interview
This interview was around 3 weeks after the group interview. Started with a 3-part test which included assessment on verbal reasoning and numerical tests. Followed by an hour-long interview with the regional manager (who led the group interview) and the logistic director. Was rather informal and focussed on my life story and experiences as well as questions like "Why Aldi?". Was also shown the results from the online psychometric testing.
4. Meeting with current area manager in an Aldi store
Awaiting final stage to interview process.
Most difficult question
It's also very important to visit a store and to see what offers etc. they have on.
Definitely prepare answers to any difficult questions and maybe revise GCSE Maths for the tests just to be sure, and feel extra confident!
