Tips to Get Hired at Aldi

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, so some things may have changed. 

1) Demonstrate a History of Hard Work

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.

2) Find a Recruiter That Works for Aldi

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 can help you navigate the process. 

3) Big Box Retail Experience is a Plus 

Ideal candidates were assistant store manager types at other big-box retail stores such as Lowes, Home Depot, Walmart, and Target. They look for individuals who are used to being on their feet much of the day in a retail environment due to the demands of the job.

4) Getting Hired as a District Manager 

Aldi recruits district managers from good colleges, with a high grade point average, and with related experience. There is a high bar to getting hired at Aldi as a District Manager.
