The Process:

Online Applications Open: January 2022 - March 2022

Applications must be submitted online. Tell us about your skills, education and work history. A copy of your resume, cover letter and academic transcript will need to be submitted with your application.

Video Interview and Psychometric Testing: Anytime between January 2022 - April 2022

You will be required to complete an online recorded video interview involving a few key questions so we can learn a bit more about you. There will also be an online behavioural assessment and cognitive ability test which will measure your numerical, inductive and verbal reasoning skills. This will help us determine your suitability for our program. Both of these can be completed in the comfort of your own home within the allocated time frame.

Assessment Centre, Area Manager Session and Individual Interview:  April 2022 - June 2022

Come and learn about the ALDI business at our Assessment Centre and demonstrate your skills through participating in a range of interactive activities. You must be able to attend in person. Our assessments are designed to get to know you so all we ask is that you be yourself and have fun.

If you succeed at the Assessment Centre, you will be invited to spend some time with an Area Manager out in the field. This will give you some early insight into the role of an Area Manager and allow you to ask any questions you may have. You may also have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with a Managing Director to assess your skills, culture fit and past performance.
