The final interview is the last stage of the Aldi interview system and will last around thirty minutes. The regional managing director will conduct this interview. If Aldi employs a candidate in the area manager role they will be closely working with the regional managing director therefore it is of paramount importance that the candidate makes a good impression in the Aldi video interview questions.
Industrial Placement Scheme

In order to qualify for our Graduate Program you:
How do you feel about working on weekends, or doing 12 hour long shifts?
This is one of the drawbacks of working in any supermarket–they are almost always open, and someone has to be there. On some weekends it will be your colleagues, and on some it will be you.
And this is exactly the attitude you want to show in an interview–that you are ready to sacrifice one or two weekends each month, staying in work, so your colleagues can enjoy some quality time with their family or friends. Certainly on other weekends they will pay you back the favor.
Talking about long shifts (10, 12, or even 14 hours), you should ensure the hiring managers that you can remain focused during a long shift, and count with doing long shifts in the job. You read the job description carefully and know what will be expected from you.
What does an excellent customer service mean to you?
For almost every retailer excellent customer service is a top priority, and Aldi is no exception. You can define such a service in various ways. For example, you can say that when a customer feels welcome, respected and attended to, from the moment they enter the supermarket until they leave, we can certainly say that they had a great customer experience.
But you can talk also about other things, such as logical organization of the store and displaying of merchandise (so they can find whatever they need), services they can use (luggage lockers, toilets, information desk, ATM), and similar things.
More than anything else, you should ensure your interviewers that whatever Aldi recognizes as an excellent customer service, you are ready and eager to deliver it, to and each and every customer–once you understand it during the training.
