Here are a few disclaimers before jumping into this post. First, I am in no way affiliated with Aldi. It’s been more than five years since I recruited for Aldi, and some things may have changed. The opinions below reflect my thoughts and experiences and may vary based on location.
Anyone looking to get hired at Aldi will need to demonstrate that they can keep pace in this environment. Experience in a similar fast-paced environment or history of being an athlete is two ways to demonstrate this ability on your resume.
If you are looking for a manager trainee, store manager, or district manager position, one of the best things you can do is find an Aldi recruiter in your area. The recruiter will know all of the ins and outs of Aldi hiring and help you navigate the process.
Ideal candidates were assistant store manager types at other big-box retail stores such as Lowes, Home Depot, Walmart, and Target. In addition, they look for individuals used to being on their feet most of the day in a retail environment due to the job demands.
Aldi recruits district managers from good colleges with a high-grade average and related experience. There is a high bar to getting hired at Aldi as a District Manager.
