Aldi Tests

Aldi came to the UK in 1990 and quickly won customers over with its brand of ‘no frills’ shopping. It is now one of the largest and fastest-growing supermarket chains in the world.

Careers at Aldi

Aldi offers a range of graduate and professional roles, as well as industry placements and apprenticeship programmes.

Successful candidates enjoy significant benefits: the starting salary for the Graduate Area Manager Programme is £44,000, with a fully financed company car, pension plan and private healthcare.

Of course, this also means that competition for roles is fierce. Aldi receives hundreds of applications each year, and candidates must complete a rigorous assessment process to secure a job.

Successful candidates must also be prepared to work hard. The graduate programme involves rotating around different areas of the business and participants can very quickly find themselves responsible for managing a store. They may also be required to work upwards of 60 hours a week, including evenings and weekends.

The programme has been described as ‘demanding’, with high levels of responsibility, so is best suited to confident, ambitious and highly motivated candidates with strong leadership skills.

  • 2) Online psychometric tests (situational judgement, numerical reasoning and logical or verbal reasoning; Aldi’s aptitude tests are provide by Saville Assessment)
  • 3) Video presentation
  • 4) Assessment centre
  • 5) Final interview

After creating your account and submitting your initial application, you can expect to receive a response within two weeks, informing you of the next steps.

Throughout the assessment process, Aldi will be looking for particular personality traits, such as ambition, determination and the ability to work in a team. See the Who We’re Looking For section of Aldi’s recruitment site for more information.

Assessors also want to see evidence of a thorough understanding of the role you are applying for, as well as the company itself and the industry in general. So it’s important to do plenty of research before you begin the application process.

Online application

Once you have researched the company and found a role you are interested in, you will need to complete an online application form on Aldi’s careers site.

This will involve giving details such as your academic history and previous experience. You will also need to provide a CV and may be asked about your reasons for choosing the role.

Make sure you answer all questions fully and accurately. Aldi applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, so it’s worth applying as soon as you can.

Aldi situational judgement test

You will be asked to complete a situational judgement test as soon as you have submitted basic details in the application form. This test is designed to assess whether your values and judgement skills align with Aldi’s expectations.

For each question, you will be given a brief outline of a hypothetical situation in the Aldi workplace, followed by four possible responses. From these, you must select the best and worst approach.

Performing well in this test is crucial to moving forward in the process, so make sure you are prepared. Try out some practice situational judgement tests here.

Aldi numerical reasoning tests

This multiple-choice test assesses your ability to evaluate, analyze and interpret numerical information that is provided to you in charts, graphs and tables.

The questions are based on calculations such as percentages, ratios and basic arithmetic. The problems are not difficult, but you will have limited time to find a correct answer – around 45 seconds for each question – so you will need to be confident at working quickly and accurately.

Our practice numerical reasoning tests and online video tutorials will help you to master the techniques and time management skills you need to excel.

Aldi verbal reasoning test

In the Aldi verbal reasoning test, you will be required to read a passage of text and then decide whether related statements are either true, false or impossible to say. You will have less than a minute to answer each question, so must be able to work well under pressure.

This test assesses your ability to extract relevant information from written information, so be careful to base your answers only on the text provided and avoid making assumptions. See our verbal reasoning tests guide for tips on preparing and to take practice verbal tests.

Aldi logical reasoning test

Aldi’s logical reasoning test (which might also be described as a diagrammatic reasoning test) assesses your sequence and pattern identification skills.

You will be presented with a series of shapes containing a number of patterns, each differing slightly. You must identify the pattern or rule linking the series of shapes, and then choose which shape should come next in the sequence from a selection of possible answers.

There will be more than one changing element in each sequence and you will have less than a minute for each question. Read more on logical reasoning tests and try out some practice logical questions.

Video presentation

Once you have successfully completed all the ]online psychometric tests](https://www.practiceaptitudetests.com/psychometric-tests/), you will be invited to record a five minute video entitled “Who Am I?”.

This is a chance for you to showcase your strengths and explain why you are the ideal candidate for the role. Think about the qualities and attributes Aldi is looking for, and select specific examples to illustrate how and when you have demonstrated these.

You will be able to practice before recording the final presentation, so take the opportunity to polish your performance. And remember that Aldi will be assessing your presentation skills as well as the content of your video.

Think about your tone and body language, and make sure you are dressed smartly and that you film yourself against a neutral backdrop under good lighting.

Assessment centre

If you make it through the previous stages, you will be invited to an Aldi assessment centre, or group assessment day. This is likely to take place at the Aldi Academy in Bolton and will probably last around four hours.

The day will begin with an introduction from a managing director, followed by an individual presentation, group exercise, verbal and numerical aptitude tests, and finally a Q&A session with senior members of the Aldi team.

For the presentation, you will be asked to prepare a two minute talk on a subject of your choice.

The group exercise is likely to be centred on an imaginary scenario that tests your ability to think under pressure, as well as your teamwork and leadership skills. Read further hints and tips in our guide to assessment centres.

Final interview

The final interview will be with the managing director of the regional distribution centre you have applied to.

The interview will last around half an hour and you should expect a range of competency-based questions, as well as some more personal questions about your character, interests and what motivates you.
