I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ALDI (Athy) in March 2018.
I applied online on the Aldi website. The process took extremely long. You have to fill in all details that are already on your CV, complete a situational response and maths test, answer questions about the company and why you want to work there (it's essentially a typed interview). It took me almost 3 hours to complete as a problem occurred twice where it failed to submit my application and brought me back to the start without saving any of the information I had typed in.
I received and email from Aldi inviting me to a group assessment. There were 4 people present in total, including the interviewer. The interviewer was friendly but professional. He asked us to introduce ourselves and tell him why we want to work for Aldi. He gave a detailed description of the role and what was essentially conveyed as a warning to us that the job was going to be incredibly tough. (He stated that they usually have 3 people opening the shop on a regular day and 5 at busy times of the year and that you'll need to unload 20 pallets in the 3 hours before opening).
We then were given a relatively simple written maths test (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division of money) similar to the maths test in the online application except you had 5 mins to complete all 10 questions. I skipped over one as I was short of time that was not actually maths, but comparing a long string of numbers to 4 other similar strings and picking which one matched.
We then we given a situational test in which we were in a hypothetical plane crash in freezing temperatures and had to rank a list of 11 items in order of priority that would help us survive or be found. (Hint: creating a fire and using smoke signals is high-priority. The whiskey is the lowest priority). The whole point of this test is to show good communication and leadership skills by convincing the other members to see things from your stand-point so make sure to actively engage and not just sit there.
The interviewer then asked if we had any questions about the job or Aldi.
Depending how you did in the group assessment, you'll get an email or call within a week to invite you to an individual interview and 2 hour work trial. (I was not invited to the individual assessment).
