Hello, I just received an email from Aldi telling me I have reached the next stage of the recruitment process which is a video interview. The email says I also have to research information on Aldi as they will they ask questions on the business model and work culture.

Does anyone know what kinda questions they’re gonna ask me?

* Why do you want to work at ALDI?
* Where do you see yourself in five years? (they want to look for people to promote they like filling in manager jobs) so lie, don't say aldi is temporary
* What would you do if you saw an employee take a Snickers bar and eat it while working? "If I saw another employee take and eat a Snickers while working, I would immediately report the situation to a person in management so they could promptly and appropriately address the issue."
* Do you have any experience in building displays or cashiering?
* Do you have any questions for me? (people hardly ever ask question, so ask one they'll like that) "What would my main responsibilities be? How does ALDI strive for an exceptional customer service experience? What would you say makes an ideal employee?"

Hope this helps!! i've been searching for jobs since one of my parents have been put on unpaid leave and recently done a few interviews with supermarkets. all had these same kind of questions.

They are not hard.

I don't quite remember them but they were only five questions. But the first thing was to say your name and position you are applying for.
When you finish setting up your camera and everything, they will show each question prior to the video recording so that you prepare your answer.

The video recording is timed to 1minute which makes it hard because it's just 60sec to explain sth.

Just prepare normally like how you should prepare for an in-person interview but the annoying thing here is that you aren't given enough time and you can't really engage with a camera like how you would with a person.
Also look at the camera, not your screen, I guess YouTubers are good at video interviews/applications.

Hey, You say it's just 1 minute for the question but can you press a button or something to finish the question earlier if you only do say 30 seconds of talking for a question? Thanks!

Hi did you get an an offer to go to assessment centre? I’ve just done my video interview. I think it did okay but not amazing. Just wondering how much lenience there is on the video application if you have done well at other stages? It’s very impersonal. I found it’s harder then what I would of if it was a face to face interview

Did anyone actually pass this stage? How did they feel doing it? Because I feel like I’m struggling stringing sentences talking to a camera 😂
