Brown nose the manager, bend over backwards don't disagree do as your told apologise even if your not in the wrong thats whats needed to work and stay at aldi.
Just had a face to face interview at Aldi Northampton admittedly I was a little nervous for it. The interviewer was very nervous himself and the whole thing just felt awkward to be honest.
When I arrived I was asked to wait in the staff room which honestly when looking round felt a bit depressing. I couldn’t picture myself eating here regularly.
I didn’t get a warm welcome from any of the staff not even the interviewer. I didn’t feel from the moment the interview began that the interviewer was interested in me at all nor did he bring any enthusiasm about working at Aldi. I really began questioning within a few minutes of it if I wanted to work here after all.
As the interview progressed it just became flat as he hardly said anything to me. It was so awkward to the point that it was uncomfortable for me. I have personally never had that experience before and usually find myself relaxing as an interview progresses. He was unable to really answer some of the questions I had often going into a corporate prepared speech without answering directly. After much nervous rambling on my part I pretty much stood up before my interviewer did and ‘ran’ out afterwards. Pretty sure I won’t hear back which honestly makes me feel relieved and happy after that! I won’t say don’t go for it but if you get the same interviewer I did perhaps build yourself up first because I was very disappointed with my interview experience.
The interview process is very easy, Aldi is looking for committed,hard working and reliable people. Great place to work.
If you know someone who already works in the store you’re applying for - that seems to be the only criteria they are interested. Don’t waste your time finding out about the company, they are so unprofessional that it doesn’t appear to make the blindest bit of difference if you’ve done any homework on them or not.
Being pleasant and well mannered,helpful and clean appearance
Researching the company's values, efficiencies etc. and enjoying being a fast worker.
Personal tip: I did the online tests, person to person interview and experience day meeting the whole team and was told it went great but they never contacted, not even an automated email. They say in the FAQ's if it's been a month you probably haven't got it. So just be prepared for that because it is frustrating, other companies are a lot more human.
As ridiculous as its sounds make sure you are a little early, we often have interviewees turn up late and they won't be interviewed.
Make sure you do a little research about the company so you can answer basic questions and try to be as flexible as possible with what hours you can work. If you can only work in a very small window of the working week, you don't be as desirable as a candidate who is fully flexible.
I think the most important thing is to be confident and enthusiastic to work. Be honest in your interview and show good customer service skills and you should get through just fine
Just take a placard with you saying your willing to work 100 hours a week.
Be confidant.. and talk, ask questions don't just sit looking glum pretending to listen
Research the company.
